Here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson!

Below is a message from Ms. Robinson , my sixth grade teacher. I wanted to honor her for being the best teacher I ever had. After trying to get everyone on the same page for a memory book, I was able to have this crystal created for her on behalf of ALL of her...

What are the chances?

You're studying abroad and decide to go sightseeing in Luxembourg and out of nowhere come your classmates from your university back home in the States. Really, what are the odds?            

Before I was an artist…

I’ve worked as a gas station attendant. I once worked at Subway for 4 hours. I’ve collected payments from customers for a sports cards trading company. I’ve been a sales representative at a mall. I’ve taught kindergarten at a daycare. I worked as an eCommerce...

Leslé Honoré Poetry

Dear Body, Yesterday Sandria Washington posted a video about a woman coming to terms with feeling too tall most of her life. I reflected on feeling too tall, not wanting to wear heels, feeling like I just took up too much space. I realized that for probably more than...

Forty-Six

In 1975, Saturday Night Live premiered. And I was born. On March 24, at around 3am, my first season began. And somehow, I’ve managed to get picked up for 45 more. I’ve been thinking a lot about age lately. It’s really quite subjective, isn’t it? I think 46 is old...

Time Hasn’t Healed the Wound

The saying “time heals all wounds” is deceptive. Today marks 29 years since my big brother transitioned. The pain is still heavy for me. I’m still angry and I still miss him so much. Every time I hear the stories of young black males being killed by gun violence my...

I Still See You…

A Loving Tribute to Kevin Eugene O'Neil by Robin Lynn O'Neil My life changed at your conception; and you became my whole being. Before you had a name, or opened up your eyes; your destiny was determined by God. From the beginning, eight weeks early, with no...

Demetrius, My Heart…

It has been 27 years, 9 months, 28 days and 3 hours since I lost the most important person in my life, my son, Demetrius Cortez Broussard. Dee was a really funny person. He loved playing any part and whenever he saw an opening, he would jump in. My son once asked if...

Do Me A “Favorite”

A Tribute to my Daughter,

Tiffany Mary Turner

Do me a favorite, Mommy. Don’t tie my shoes…

I can do it myself – I know what to do

Do me a favorite when we go home

Let me play on my xylophone

Let’s face it, Mom – be frank and be fair

You know you can’t comb my nappy hair

When I dance with Jameel he spins me around

Up on his shoulder he won’t let me down

Do me a favorite before I begin

Let me choose the college I want to attend

I’m headed to Dallas ‘cause Tampa is out

You know I will make it so don’t you dare pout.

Do me a favorite and please understand

I love Jordan, he makes no demands

Mom, Do me a Favorite and be happy for me

I’m in Heaven now and God lets me be me
