Loving the Child


I share today my personal beliefs regarding children. I believe each child encountered should be shown real love. You never know what happens in a child's home. Sometimes the love you show is the only thing that reminds the child they are worthy of being love.

Although I know my biological mother loves me, alcoholism got/ gets in the way of her being able to express that love to me or my brother in a beneficial manner. I have been blessed to have been loved by " the village" My brother, time and time again, rejects the village while acknowledging the village does exist for him as well.

Today I write to thank some women who have become part of my village during this next phase of my life. ET shows me how to live in truth and without fear she shows to me how to reach the desires of my heart CJ reminds me how to balance my life so I may care for my family while doing for myself. JWT constantly works to keep me aware of the need to put love into every area of my life, even when I do not want to do so. She sends out thoughts of love to calm my justified ( in my mind) anger. I am thankful for each of these women for coming into my life at this time.

Today remember even if you did not birth a child you can share a mother's love with a child. Love is the key to our human evolution.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.

Work to do

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.
