A Day of Celebration

Today we celebrate the 90th birthday of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior and the 10th anniversary of the inauguration of the first African American President of the United States, Barack Obama. Both of these men exemplified class and dignity. They inspired us to treat each other as brothers and sisters and motivated us to be a better person today than we were yesterday. They represented the promise of what America is supposed to be and it is in acting in their spirit that will Make America Great.

A New Year

It is that time once again.  The ending of one year the beginning of another. 

A new year!  A call to action! The opportunities to be better tomorrow and each succeeding day than you are today.  

A chance to break free of the mundane, to refuse to paint in black and white and between the lines but instead wherever your imagination takes you.  To paint your future in the bold strokes and daring colors it was meant to be painted in

A new year is the chance to embrace the truth. The truth that nothing is impossible as long as your faith remains strong and you dare to dream. 

A new year,

A blank canvass,

A new beginning,

Seize it, 

Make it yours

Because after all the future is but what you make it

Can You Dig It

I say the future is ours…
…if you can count!
Now, look what we have
here before us.
We’ve got the Muslims…
…sitting next to
the Jews.
We’ve got the Christians …
…right by the Atheists

The Whites up against the Blacks and the heterosexuals back to back with the homosexuals.

Nobody is wasting nobody.

That…
…is a miracle.
And miracles
is the way things ought to be.
You’re standing right now
with nine delegates from every race, nationality religion and sexual orientation
That’s over 7 and a half billion humans.
Now, put that in perspective and you’ll understand there ain’t but a handful of racist, misogynist, intolerant hate filled humans left in this whole world

Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?

Now here’s the sum total.
Unity and tolerance could run this world.
We could make it a paradise. Because we got the Earth

Can you dig it?

The problem in the past
has been those committed to hate and division turning us against one another.
We have been unable
to see the truth,
because we’ve been fighting
for 10 square feet of ground,
our turf, our little piece of turf.
That’s crap, brothers and sisters
The turf is ours by right
because it’s our turn.
All we have to do
is see the good in each other
We slowly root out the hate from each corner of the globe
Secure our territory,
secure our turf
because it’s all our turf and this Earth would be a paradise.

Can you dig it.

Power to the people Boogie to the beat

November 6, 2018 we must awaken with a single purpose:

To go to the polls and take government back from the charlatans who profess they have been elected to serve the people when the truth is they serve only themselves and the all mighty dollar.

To go to the polls and remove from the halls of government those who use hate and look to divide us so that they may expand their own power and increase their own wealth.

To go to the polls and restore what democracy truly is – The voice of the people.

On November 6, 2018 we must boogie to the new beat that is rising up in this country.

Racism based on the color of one skin fading away.

Discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation vanishing by the day

Disrespect of women no longer accepted as one of society’s dirty little norms

Bullying someone because they don’t fit neatly into a box that society claims is normal waning as we speak

Division being increasingly replaced by unity

Exclusion being increasingly replaced by inclusion

On November 6 we must rise as a people and boogie to the growing beat, that they are so desperate to shut down, and make America truly Great

You may try, I may waiver, but you shall not break the bond between myself and the Lord

I have been blessed in my lifetime.  From the moment I was born the Lord has watched over me, guided me and protected me. The last year has been difficult for me health wise but thanks to the grace of the Lord I have been granted the strength to face the recovery process head on. Despite all my blessings there have been times when I feel unhappy and alone.  When this feeling is creeping into my soul I clear my mind of all things and talk to the Lord. It is during these moments of reflection that I lean on my faith.  Evil will look for the smallest of openings to pounce on you. Evil knows that we are only human and no matter how deep our faith may appear to be our spirituality can be stripped from us. Evil will endeavor to grow a moment of unhappiness into a lifetime of bitterness and doubt about the Lord’s love for us. But as I talk to the Lord I give him praise and thanks for all he has blessed me with. I pray that he will give me the courage to reject the thoughts evil is attempting to poison my mind with.  I open up my heart and allow the Lord to touch my soul and guide me away from the darkness and back toward the light. It is then I can feel the power of the Lord. I can hear Him say to me my child I know you are not perfect, I know you may have moments of doubt, but I also know where your heart and soul truly reside, you have shown this to the world through your praise of me. You are now and will forever be my child and I love you unconditionally.  I will guide you.  I will protect you. I will help you strengthen your faith so that no one will be able to break the bond between us.

Hate = Ugly – Unity = Beauty

There is nothing more ugly than division and hate for each other with the exception of those who promote it for personal gain. One day they will have to stand before the creator and justify the unjustifiable. 

There is nothing more beautiful than unity and compassion for each other. Blessings shall be showered unto those of us who who practice it. For we all God’s children regardless of what we may look like.
