Far Far Away

Far Far Away by Angela Grant

I would like
To go Far away
Far Far away
So Far away
That I am no more
And will always be
So Far Far away

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. Psssst, in case you haven’t noticed yet, I’ll tell you a secret: Even when in the limelight, seen as the show master running the show, or condemned to be the leader of the pack, I’m actually the invisible man, silently operating on his own, not part of any organization, not linked to any political party, not following any ideology, philosophy, or religion, and not acknowledging any borders, countries or nations. But I do feel connected to Lilith, hehe.
