It’s now been 5 years since my father made transition. I miss him terribly, but when his birthday rolls around, I am more buoyed by the remembrances of what I learned from him (and about him) while he was here.

Everyone has important milestones in life that they would like to meet or surpass. For me, perhaps more than most, milestones are relative. Literally.

Part of the challenge of growing up Libra is learning that balance is never the end goal; what’s achievable is to never stop working toward balance, instead of thinking you’ve ever found it.

In recognition of the birthday of our founder, Walter P. Lomax, Jr., MD, we offer a series of tributes to his legacy that were collected since his transition in October 2013. We encourage you to honor his memory by joining WURD and supporting progressive and proud, Black Talk Radio.
