scientists, political leaders, doctors, lawyers, all proud americans who believed in the concept of preserving the rights and freedoms we possess and still fight for today. the concept was proposed right in our backyard. in february of 1969, a group of young students from kent state university came up with the idea. that proposal later became officially recognized by the u.s. government in 1976 when president gerald ford urged americans during the month of february to "seize the opportunity" to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history. so i urge you to "seize the moment." let's give credit where credit is due and pay tribute to those who have done great things for mankind. let us honor and thank those americans of our past who worked hard and made sacrifices for our country - all for the furtherance of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. i'm larry macon jr. and that's
