I just want to thank The Washington Informer for all of its hard work and putting out a paper to our community for over 50 years. That is a long time to consistently be about the people, for the people. Black newspapers are very important because we need to see what matters to us specifically, too. If it weren’t for The Washington Informer, there are a lot of things I would never know about that’s affecting the Black community.

Fighting Alzheimer’s with Information

I enjoyed reading the signs of Alzheimer’s even though that disease really scares me. I know so many that has succumbed to such an ugly thing. What people don’t know is that you eventually forget everything like how to use the bathroom, eat, chew and, ultimately, breathe. I know there is no cure, but I pray for one every day. Raw fruits, vegetables, brain games and a stress-free life can help prevent it and that’s what I want to do.
