This week many were inspired and excited by the masses of women wearing splashes of Crimson and Cream, Blue, White, Gold and Pink all over the newspapers, ABC, NBC, even MSNBC. For those that did not see this, nor understand, this is the Centennial Year for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as well as the Founders Day (or birthday) for Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and Sigma Gamma Rho all Greek Letter Organizations.
Due to the number of festivities around Chicago (celebrating sisterhood and lifelong friendships formed through the unbreakable Sorority bonds) Chicagoans may have encountered the masses of love and felt inspired to reconnect or share the love with someone from your past. This feeling is great! I too was inspired to restore and renew the bonds I had created just 13 years ago.
So even if you are not a member of a BGLO or any organization, when you see someone smiling brightly wearing any of the letters above, stop and wish them a Happy Founders Day! You will be glad you did!
