Congresswoman @ayannapressley made history in 2018 when she became the first African American woman elected to represent the 7th District in Massachusetts. Before that, she served as a Boston City Councilor for over nine years, breaking barriers for other women of color to run and serve in elected office. She is a policy-maker, activist and survivor who advocates for the most disenfranchised to have a voice and role in shaping policies that lift up our communities. "Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley is a fierce advocate for communities of color and has been a key ally to the Latinx community in Massachusetts." ~ Co-Founders Betty Francisco and Eneida Román
Sorry, long essay today ☺ - G💚 (It continues into the comments)
A man by the name of Benedict Arnold (a well-known traitor to the cause of the American Revolution) found himself being told to go on a secret mission by the Massachusetts Committee of Safety. His goal was to capture an old British fort from the French and Indian War known as Fort Ticonderoga. He was to get the supplies to help the American soldiers trying to fight the British troops trying to defend Boston. He was also told to speak with Ethan Allen who was already close to Fort Ticonderoga which was located in New York by Lake Champlain (Vermont was right nearby the fort). Allen was also already thinking with the Green Mountain Boys to capture the fort before Arnold arrived. Once Arnold got to Allen on May 9th, 1775 and told him about this operation he would be leading, the Green Mountain Boys spoke up and said that they wanted Allen to lead them and not Arnold. Allen and Arnold both spoke with each other about this and agreed that they would both lead the operation. They would both plan for a daring raid set for the dawn of the next day. When it became dawn on May 10th, 1775, the Green Mountain Boys and Benedict Arnold (some extra militia men across New England also joined them) silently rowed across Lake Champlain. Once they hit land, Ethan Allen told Seth Warner (one of the founders of the Green Mountain Boys) to sail the boats back and watch for British red coats. Once they approached the fort, a sentry (a sentry is basically a soldier that keeps watch for intruders) caught eye of Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold. Ethan Allen said that he was shot (the only shot that went off) at by the sentry and that then the sentry ran away into the fort immediately after. Ethan Allen then had him and his men charge into the fort and surprise most of the British soldiers who were dead asleep. One sentry who was awake charged one of the Green Mountain Boys with his bayonet, but only wounded him. Ethan Allen quickly stopped him from killing this boy and made the sentry tell him the location of the captain of Fort Ticonderoga.

Walking into 28, I was asked last night any goals I have.
I always have goals.
Lots of them.
Here are a few:
Continue to lean into my truth. Especially in the hard moments.
Feeling secure in my voice, use this year to strengthen it.
Make the hard decisions.
Get honest with myself and my ego.
And ultimately identify what I’m doing to fuel my ego and what I’m doing to fuel the world.
And with that
Do more, a lot more, for the world.
So grateful for a wonderful day and @citywinerybos inviting us out to their new outdoor wine bar for my birthday. 🙏🏼❤️
Can you believe these are the same person? I was just going through some old photos and came across these from my @behindthechair_com webinar I did last August. I was asked to wait to post the results until the video was ready to go but with The BTC show and everything that followed I never remembered.
This was my wet balayage video tutorial on btcuniversity.com
It’s still available so go check it out!
I actually haven’t seen it yet so I hope you like it. 🙏🏼❤️
