Let Go


Let go!

by Angela Grant

Let go
The life you want
Fly, climb mountains, land among the stars

Let go
Believe in yourself
Jump; find those wings on the way down

Yes, let go
Value humanity
Support, compassion, and empathy of others

Let go
Unshackle fear
Equality, justice, and respect for all

Let go…let go…let go…
Break manacles
All men and women are created equal

Letting go...one of the hardest things to do.
Letting go…one of the hardest things to do.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Some people are only heroic words. For the rest they can be described with 2 words: Indifference and hypocrisy. What troubles me a bit ( so mind you, not a whole lot) is that not many see it that way. All have trendy open minds, proclaim themselves super righteous, and run with their holy leaders or some other creep, defending and cloning same.


    1. Trendy is the key word and so is Clone. Many are trendy clones, no mind of their own.

      Roald, I learned a rude lesson Tuesday: There is no one fighting for ordinary people

      When I went through Tufts Medical Center’s rebuttal (after reviewing my medical record) line by line with Carleton I realized that Tufts Medical Center intentionally lied –initial medical records sent to me was to support their mischaracterizations. However, the Littler document–in which Tufts Medical Center signed under risk of perjury– is not substantiated in either medical records. As a matter of fact, the letter contradicts itself. I may find a way of going through it for everyone to see.

      I would like to attach faces to the names. I left off the morning ED crew which I will add.

      Totally off topic….I know …

      Tufts Medical Center is a CREEPY lying institution!

  2. I have to start giving myself credit for my effort so I am liking my own work. I think people are afraid to like my posts or maybe they don’t. Not sure what is up with that….what am I missing? A community! So many interesting topics and we are the only ones that really talk. I am procrastinating.

      1. While the appeal went well in January….I was intentionally distracted by the powers that be….hit my family. MCAD….since then no word from them….I should call but why bother. Election is around the corner and maybe justice might be served in another form.
