Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah 2013

Happy Thanksgiving


I struggled last night thinking about writing something personal yet applicable for Thanksgiving.  I could go through an extensive list of things that I’m thankful for because truly, every day of my life is a thanksgiving.  However, as I thought about what to share, it sounded more like a Memorial Day post than a Thanksgiving post.  The interest of this blog is to advocate for justice for all, and that is difficult to do without constantly remembering those denied or seeking justice.

Because of seeing justice denied, I am thankful for real, true justice. Read the rest of this entry



blog of the year 6 stars

Nominated by:

Dr. Rex


Dr. Rex has written:

There are so many wonderful blogs and writers out there. Some I follow and others I see through reblogs. There’s an incredible wealth of knowledge, information, facts, interesting stories, humor, celebrations, shared feelings and personal stories. We post and we share. We create bridges, we tear walls down. We connect!! We create friendships.

She expresses my thoughts and experience.  In passing on nominations today, Dr. Rex came up with a great idea.  I am adopting that in passing on this award to whomever has been previously nominated and needs another star.


Blackbuttery7 has received its 5th star for the Blog of the Year, 2013, award.  Our 5th star is presented by Dr. Rex (Horty)

It is indeed an honor to be recognized by peers. We each understand and appreciate what is required to blog, and we share our love in doing so.  I am so honored and humbled to be a part of a blogging community, sharing the same interests in equality for all.

I now pass the nomination to Caleb G. of

Diversity if BeautifulDiversity is Beautiful


Since accepting the nomination and passing it on to nominees, Blackbutterfly7 has received two stars for a total of four.  When we accepted the nomination, I inadvertently forgot that Blackbutterfly7 had already received two stars and did not inform the nominees that the two stars were passed on to them.  Thus, Blackbutterfly7 now has 3 stars to pass on to nominees.

I now pass the nomination, with 3 stars, to Caleb G. of


It is a great honor for Blackbutterfly7 to accept nomination for this award.  It means so much to me, to BlushedBrown as a contributing author, and for those who work behind the scenes to make this blog possible.

In July 2012, Jim and Mindyme62 of the Yahoo Group Blackbutterfly768, encouraged me to look into opening a blog.  On August 1, 2012, Blackbutterfly7 was born with the publishing of our “About” page.  The popularity and success of this blog has been mainly by word-of-mouth.  Therefore, we share this nomination for Blog of the Year with all of our supporters.

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

A message from Xena of Blackbutterfly7

Thanks to everyone who visited, referred, participated.  Happy New Year to you all and in 2013, let’s continue praying for justice for Trayvon.
