Why Fathers Are Not Optional

Happy Daddy's Day

Egg plus sperm: Could it be Happy Father’s Day?

Moms get so much of the glory — and deservedly so. But, sometimes, it seems fathers and their value is under appreciated and undervalued. And that just isn’t right!

Because while he does not carry and push life out into this world, a father is an essential contributor to its creation. And his continued presence and involvement is essential if the child he helped to create is to thrive spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.

Why Women May Be the Best Shot at Saving Humanity

Women Save Humanity

Ladies, it’s up to us and the real men who love and support us

We live in perilous times still! Humanity needs the inspired hearts and wills of sane women now. This has always been the truth. But today, for the first time in history, we can visually bear witness to the pain and suffering of others seven worlds away.

Like it or not, we now have a front row seats to all this absurd misery live and in high-definition colour on our TVs at homes; on our smartphones and tablets; on magazine covers at the checkout lane; and even at the airport while we wait for our flight to board. There is literally no escape from the constant storm of images and disagreeable news.

How a Brain Tumor Ruined My Life and “Gifted” Me a Valuable Lesson at the Same Time

You Are Strong

You can deal with more batsh*t than you think

Don’t pray for an easy life. Pray for strength to endure a difficult one.

~ Bruce Lee

I was diagnosed with a 2.5cm acoustic neuroma, a rare, “benign” brain tumor, in March 2011. I still wish to God I had never had this thing in my head or suffered for over a decade with the fallout of having something in my head that had no damn business in there. But I’m still here in 2021, and my batsh*t brain tumor journey has “gifted” me a lesson about what I am made of.

Life Invests in Us. But Are We Worthy of Life?

Is Your Life Worthy of All Who Has Invested in You?

We’re an “investment.” Happy enough is not a enough.

I’m happy enough. I don’t expect much. I don’t give much. I don’t get much. I’m happy enough.

~ Waitress, a movie (2007)

We’re living in detestable times. At all four corners of the Earth, we humans are reveling in war, chaos, and unrest. Humanity is awake and it’s vexed and throwing tantrums like a two-year old.

Why the Twin Beasts of Hate Are Real!

Watch this 4-minute video. And get it if you’re not selfish or stupid. It’s time for a fracking revolution…

They are the fugly twin beasts of hate and ignorance! And Black people in America and across the globe are intimately familiar with their hideous loathsomeness.

They are the massive crosses of injustice we carry on our black backs! They are the waking and sleeping nightmare that follows us on the streets, in our vehicles, in our schools, in the workplace, in church, in courtrooms.

Are You Wondering How Society Got So “Sick?”

Wondering Why

You’re not alone. What the frack is humanity doing? Because whatever the hell it is, unless we stop it, it’s guaranteed to be our undoing

I’m a Black person. I’ve suffered my share of micro and macro aggressions at the hands of White people and white privilege.

I’m a woman. I’ve been sexually harassed, inappropriately touched and propositioned in the work place and elsewhere. And I know what it means to fear being victimized by a man.

Why Arbitrary Hate Is Nonsensical

Hate Is Nonsensical

What we do to “others,” we do to “us”

After thousands of years of being on the merry-go-round of human existence, we still can’t seem to let go of our intolerance and our hate of other people who differ from us in ways they didn’t or can’t choose. Arbitrary hate is nonsensical.

Hate and intolerance can never be solutions.
