Freedom 

Freedom

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows. -George Orwell

Freedom to speak the truth is tempered by etiquette  and strangulated by censorship.  Why is freedom to lie not?  #TrumpLies

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. Another WS got away with murder. It was interesting that cause of death was determined before a medical forensic examination. Seemed like minutes after his death it was definitely determined to be suicide. There was a report from a witness in the car that he accidentally shot himself. But who knows the truth anymore.

            1. Yes, that’s the problem with most so called activists: They all know how to complain about what’s wrong with their society (and of course, beyond), they all know, given the chance, how they could do a much better job, but to get rid of what they call the culprits, a.k.a. ze elite, they have no clue, or……..lack the guts.

              Ah, yes, for sure,……….viva la revolución! Um…….uh….huh……. now wait a minute……..I still have to feed my cat…….so go ahead………don’t wait for me…… I’ll catch y’all later on the glorious battlefield……..um……..later………much later.
