Sunday’sMeme: Help Others

This quote is the antithesis of today’s values where we devour those in need, take advantage of them and squeeze the very life from their body.

You Were Born To Win

You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare and expect to win. -Zig Ziglar

You were born to win
You were born to win

Winning is a mindset. You have to believe, know and prepare to win. One of the problems I faced growing up was fear of winning or having my dreams come true. I felt more comfortable with defeat or disappointment than victory. Never understood why that was the case?

Looking Back

I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry.

That is a picture of Boss. I cry when I look at this picture because of the many times he made me smile despite my illness. Jeez is this me sentimental about a dog? I don’t like dogs, yet he was my best friend, and I miss him.

Peace

If peace means accepting second class citizenship, then I don’t want it. If peace means keeping my mouth shut in the midst of evil and injustice, then I don’t want it. If peace means being complacent and accepting the status quo, then I don’t want it. If peace means being passive, then I don’t want it. If peace means a willingness to be exploited and humiliated, then that’s the kind of peace that I don’t want—-DR. KING (from his speech in Louisville Kentucky , 1956)

 

That is white Americans’ definition of peace for Black people and other ethnic groups.  Personally, I would rather die fighting for real peace and freedom.
