I published an earlier blog called "Intentional Leadership" on September 29, 2021, stating that we have "a leadership crisis." Over the past few weeks and months, parents have taken a leadership role in their families, and out of the ashes of despair, individuals are rising to take on new roles in leadership all across America. I wold like to introduce you to one such amazing leader who I only recently came to hear about.
Virginia Lieutenant Governor elect, Winsome Sears (pictured), is someone to admire. Her Jamaican born father came to America to have a better life. He went back to Jamaica and brought his daughter, Winsome, to America at the age of 6. I think she's pretty bad-a-- and someone who was born a natural leader. I love when leaders lead.
During a recent acceptance speech for the position of Lieutenant Governor in the Commonwealth of Virginia, she said, "When I joined the Marine Corps, I was still a Jamaican. But this country had done so much for me, I was willing, willing, to die for this country." I am encouraged when average people do exceptional things. When someone who is "supposed" to feel oppressed takes a stand and speaks her truth that contradicts the lies others would have us believe,
