Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.
—Miguel de Unamuno

Imani

Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph in righteous struggle.

I actually know someone that is the living example of Imani.

She shines a light in my direction and I learn from her faith and actions.

I see her and how she handles life, family, friends, service, business and me... And knows the she understands how to use her powers.

She believes in the movement.

She wants to participate in making the hood a better place in creating business and providing self for service.

She is a true family member and has the most amazing relationship with her Mother.

She draws from her inner strength and courage to adapt and be successful in her various endeavors in various locales... She is not local or distant. She succeeds all over the place and in various things.

Her faith is strong which gives her powers to do anything, and she has and will continue to grow and become a more powerful asset to family and community.

I would love to tell you all, but I'm sure you can figure it all out... We all have examples of wonderful principles that shine for us.

I just hope to continue to be illuminated.
