Category Archives: Word of the Day

The Word of the Day will consist of inspiring, encouraging, and thought provoking words. These words can be used as motivation to start off with a good day. It is believed that our day will end as it begins. Mark would like to offer a “word of the day”on Tuesday and Friday. The Author, Mark L Baynard hope that we can all grow and learn from these words.

Today’s Word Is “Mentor”

The word of the day is “Mentor.” Mentor is defined as: someone who teaches or give help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person. A wise and trusted teacher or counselor.

Charles Lee, Jonathon Jpdapoet Peterson, and Mark Baynard recently attended a powerful mentors meeting in Montgomery, Alabama. We are in need of more positive role models in our communities. This is true in nearly every city in the United States. Illegal drugs and criminal behavior can be found on almost every street corner. Being raise without a stable father is the home has become normal. Our youth are hurting and some of them feel that no one understands them. The truth is that crime is not the answer to any of our problems in the community. Prison sometimes appears to be more of an accepted reality than graduating high school, attending college, getting a job or even starting a business. We must not sit back and accept this as the fate of our youth. I call all of my brothers and sisters to be a mentor right were you stand. Take one individual “under your wing” to help and give advice to during their most difficult times. We may be able to reach our youth before they reach prison. Education will prepare our youth for employment while knowledge of self will give them true identity. Black live matter to us!

I would like to acknowledge Charles Lee the founder of That’s My Child Organization for the work that he has done and continue to do in the community. I also would like to give a shout out to Jpdapoet for blessing us with the spoken word. There are many others who are working in the field as we speak. I encourage you to continue to do the positive work that you are doing. My family and friends in Wilmington, Delaware, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York City, Connecticut, and the DC area; continue to be a mentor in those dangerous streets.

Today’s Word Is “Struggle”

The word of the day is “Struggle.” Struggle is defined as: to be vigorously involved with a task; to make a strenuous effort; to progress or penetrate with difficulty.

When faced with a struggle in life try not to become discouraged. Understand that while in the struggle you have the potential to develop into the person you need to be. I can remember many days that my family struggled while growing up in a housing project in Wilmington, Delaware. My struggle allowed me to grow into the man who I am today. Embrace your struggle with courage, determination, and faith that the Most High God will work things out for your good.

Today’s Word Is “Knowledge”

The word of the day is “Knowledge.” Knowledge is defined as: the state or fact of knowing; Familiarity, awareness, or comprehension acquired by experience or study.

Brothers and sisters we must gain knowledge. As the scriptures mention “my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. We must not rely on others to tells us who we are or even who the Most High God is. Knowledge is to study in order to gain this information first hand. We can no longer allow others to misinform us or distort the truth. Understand this brothers we were not created to be thugs or gangsters. Understand this sisters you were not create to be b*thces or whores. We must continue to gain knowledge as we fight for justice, equality, and freedom. In order for us to make a positive difference in our own communities, we must learn about the greatness that God has placed in us. After gaining such precious information we are then obligated to walk as the men and women that the Most High has declared us to be.
