Four Stories Of Amazing Americans

 

It’s the fourth of July weekend and the perfect time to celebrate what makes America a great country.  The people who call this country home and have awe-inspiring stories to make us proud. Through their bravery, selflessness, compassion to see beauty in the world and their ability to seek redemption.  We are inspired by their actions and encouraged to celebrate their lives. 

Today I share the story of four Americans – Richard Etheridge – the first black man to become keeper of a Life-Saving Station at Pea Island on the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

Next is Peggy Wallace Kennedy – the daughter of Alabama Governor George Wallace.  Her story is one of reconciliation, redemption, exchange and connection.  A revelation much needed in our country today. 

Jessica Nabongo- is the first black woman to visit 195 countries. Her voyage around the world teaches us when we trust the good in ourselves, we can find that in others too.    

And, I’ll start the show with the story of Wilma Mankiller – The first female Deputy Chief of the Cherokee Nation, First female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation and the first woman elected as chief of a major Native tribe.  She grew up to accomplish such high esteem in her lifetime and helping her tribe as an activist.
