Originally published September 12, 2021... This piece, I feel, is very apropos in light of the holidays and the numerous children, young adults and even adults who are observing us go through this journey called LIFE!! _________________________________________ In our zeal to adhere to the WORD of GOD, we, I believe, sometimes fall short by not delv…
 
Those that grew up in the hearts of urban areas are probably left without words as they witness the complete redevelopment of areas that they once called home. What was formerly the local sandlot that represented the home field advantage against neighboring foes now houses a renowned nationally known supermarket. Memories of mom catching the train …
 
I previously posted this piece on August 8, 2021 as the fifth episode in the detailing of the hold that drugs once had on my life... BUT THIS TIME... I am posting it to extol the goodness that MY GOD has in store for me and ALL that truly trust, humbly submit, and believe that HE can truly do abundantly more that we can ask think or imagine. Yes, I…
 
We all have been, or will be viewed, at one point in life as the person who can "get it done"-regardless of the respective field. This is especially true for the athlete that arrives on campus as the designated savior. The anointed one in whom all the alumni and the irrepressible hangers-on stake the entire future of their beloved programs. Unfortu…
 
Too often those things that are unfamiliar and pose some form of obstacle are brought to life in the form of a monster that seems impossible to overcome. It is beyond time that we address the reality that the fear of the proverbial monster in the closet is not solely exclusive to the fantastical imaginations of youth. Throughout this journey-where …
 
Ohhhh,... this and the previous episodes are those that hit close to home for those who have been mired in the abyss of addiction- in my case -drug addiction. I oftentimes found myself trapped within the walls of my own mind-restrained there by what I thought was a temporary infatuation-something, because of my self-proclaimed intelligence, that I …
 
Oftentimes as we go about the life of living out our addiction, irrespective of our affliction of choice, we refuse to take note of the effect that it has on our temperament, our ability to socialize- our physical appearance. In my case, I even spent an inordinate amount of time in the mirror, hell-bent on ensuring that what was before me met the s…
 
The things from which we seek solace are oftentimes those things that are a known detriment to our overall health-both mentally and physically. This episode, and a number of my subsequent episodes, is the beginning of a series that I feel compelled to share as part of my personal testimony. The episodes will not be shared in any specific order as i…
 
The continuous killing of my people and the barrage of those events being televised continuously has eliminated the need for indoctrination once incorporated at the "special pic-a-nic". White youth are now being plopped down in front of televisions and are being taught the intricacies of hatred, wittingly and unwittingly, without leaving their home…
 
"Look Away...This Ain't Your Dixieland" Black men-for so long having to look away for fear of the repercussions. WE KNOW THAT GAZE!!! That GAZE intent on inflicting fear!!! WE KNOW THAT GAZE!!! That GAZE delivering that intimidating message-You are being watched!!! BLACK MEN...WE KNOW THAT GAZE!!! BLACK MEN-we are NOT victims-ONLY VICTIMIZED!! BLAC…
 
ENDURING!! That one word , I think, best surmises my people. Despite all that we have encountered, and continue to encounter, we continue to confront each with an enduring faith, and an enduring spirit. "a Different Kind of Cloth", though simplistically composed, is my attempt to capture US as we are confronted with, and successfully address, the d…
 
We have been left to determine whether the perceived good intentions of those that have the capacity to impact our lives on a daily basis are indeed good at all. Friendly faces adorned with beautiful smiles are leaving us in a quandary-ALWAYS-about the nature of their intent. "Oh, How it Amazes" addresses just that. It is intended to evoke thought …
 
The frequency with which there is a physical assault on my people is now, oftentimes, viewed as routine within our community(ies). The abhorrent actions perpetrated against us oftentimes goes without punishment and sadly is eventually forgotten. This is primarily due to the occurrence of an oftentimes more horrific act against one of our own. It is…
 
Well, here we are , yet again. I suppose I should just resign myself to the fact that the killing of us by police-the system- is going to continue-despite our continuing efforts to bring attention to it. We march, we acquiesce- nothing seems to satisfy your insatiable desire to kill us. Nawww!! That ain't happening! This BLACK MAN shall never be pu…
 
Your continuing onslaught of dastardly and cowardly deeds is designed to make us grow weary. The constant acts of blatant racism that are being perpetrated against us by persons that are intent on maintaining the diminishing authority and privilege that they now possess has seemingly increased the wanton acts of cruelty against my people. They are …
 
Elementary!! It doesn't appear that everyone learned those lessons and are intent on robbing us of our inalienable rights. Make no mistake though-the daily gifts of Mercy and Grace are not incumbent on the vile actions of man. We, as a people, will continue to walk in the KNOWING of a MIGHT that far exceeds those things that are cast upon us by an …
 
This scourge called Covid has enlightened me, and I am sure many others, as to the position held within the lives of others. Those once considered friends have revealed themselves to be nothing more than acquaintances. Conversely, those thought to be casual associates have proven to be friends, in every sense of the word. I know this subject matter…
 
It's my birthday--the BIG 6-0. As the years have flown by I find myself taking note of the things that I can no longer do--AS WELL. However, I also find myself able to do things with more proficiency and with less effort. The journey of life is indeed something that I give honor to GOD for on a daily basis. I continue to thank him for his mercies a…
 
This episode was written with the express purpose of release on this day...March 9th- my 25th wedding anniversary. The lady, my wife Marjorie, that has held my heart , and will continue to hold it, has given my life GREAT JOY-through the good and the not so good. We were intent on living a life that exuded the Kingdom-and, for the most part, we hav…
 
Listen...Listen to that friend, that family member, that co-worker. Listen...listen-don't be so intent on getting your point across that you fail to hear what is being said to you. Undoubtedly, the subject of this piece had voiced his intent at some time prior to making the ultimate decision to end his life. So, I encourage us all to...Listen-with …
