MT Day 15

Thanks everyone for the feedback. The good news is I am still getting up each morning training. My energy level is there. The bad news is yesterday I felt stronger than Samson and worked too much clearing property. I shall pace myself a little better in the future.

I am very glad that I am doing this training. I had so many reasons to delay training in my mind. However, the feeling of empowerment that comes with each day of training tells me I am doing right.

A young man let me know this morning that I looked young. I am not a cougar but I was really happy. My son said to me the other day that I looked better. Such comments make getting up at 4:30 AM worth it.

My biggest accomplishment thus far is being in bed by 10 PM. I love it.

More later. The videos are a bit of an issue but working to mitigate the issue.

Thanks for following.

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
