71: Fight The Power: An African-American Man’s Peaceful Process in Overcoming Adversity

philly interview

Sometimes we feel awkward introducing ourselves to complete strangers, but when I saw this man sitting on the lawn in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA, I knew he was holding a story to be told, and I was really hoping he’d tell me all about it.

‘I AM UNBREAKABLE”

philly interview6

We met as strangers and left as friends and not only friends, but with a deeper understanding of each other, not only as people, but also where we come from, both intellectually, morally, and most importantly, as fellow humans.

A great conversation with a great human being!

Thank you my friend, for sharing your story with us!

New Episode Tuesday!

New episode coming Tuesday

Join me as I engage in a very interesting conversation with a complete stranger on the front lawn of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pa, USA, as he shares his story of enduring racism, police brutality, and problems within the judicial system.

We then move to topics like humanity, Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, understanding we are all individuals with dissimilar narratives and backgrounds and that’s ok, opening ones mind, and having respect for all human beings…and after all of this…we depart as friends and hopefully have a better understanding of each other.

Serenity Now

That ‘vortex of negativity’ I always talk about avoiding? Well somehow it got hold of me and I am currently fighting my way back, I’m not completely consumed…I’m stuck at the entrance but it’s incredibly strong and I’m giving it all I can to get out.

What happened? The world and everything bad happened to find a crack through my armor and began to seep in.

Somehow…someway…violence towards others, hatred, lawlessness….they all have found an accepting place in our society…where in my world…none of that is now or will ever be acceptable.

I’m not talking about isolated pockets. I am talking about large masses.

I think we have lost the positive message. It’s been stolen away by the savagery of that violence, hatred, and lawlessness

Normally I see it coming…the storm cloud…but I didn’t see this one…and to be honest…I am worried for us all…

Praying things get better. Yes…I’ve turned to prayer a long time ago.

Violence and hatred never solves anything.

You can beat a man into submission but that will never change what’s in his mind.

Prayer…

I’m praying this settles down…

Maybe you can join me in prayers….

Disconnecting to Connect

Disconnecting to connect today. I do it often. I need to do it often! Too much anger and hatred happening in the world these days. I shut off the TV, very little personal social media, not watching the videos, not getting sucked into the vortex of negativity…I know what’s happening on the streets…I’m out there on the streets often…I see everything…I’m not ignoring what’s real…I know exactly what’s up… and the only way it’s going to change is if we stop the hate and respect each other…and we need to pray on it as well!

69: All We Need Is Love

Contraband Slim has dedicated his life to spreading positivity and love towards anyone he meets. His sincerity and determination to spread love towards others has motivated me to share this message of positivity with you, and hopefully in return, you will share it as well.

Please give a listen here…

All We Need Is Love

63: Hug Somebody! (length 5 min)

Hugging someone expresses love beyond words for a lot of people. Hugging someone can mean someone is really happy to be in your presence, and it can mean goodbye as well.

But these days, if you are a hugger, you may be going through an emotional rough time with social distancing in effect.

Today we talk to ‘Blondie’, who simply loves people so much she loves to give a hug, if they don’t mind of course.

Unfortunately for Blondie and many others, these are times where social distancing is preventing most of us from hugs.

63: HUG SOMEBODY (length 5 Min)

Morning Sky

It’s like watching God create art everyday. I don’t often remember that, especially during these trying times, but I did remember it today.

52: Get Yourself Up!

There will be times when life gets you down, and in those times, you absolutely need to get yourself up!

We all go through those hard times, hopefully you will understand you are not alone in your journey through life, you have others sharing similar adversities, and you also have God walking right along with you and sometimes even carrying you.
