MC Hammer was Right...We've Got to Pray, just to Make it Today...'s been a minute since I last posted. So many things going on and honestly not all good. I don't like that after so long, I'm coming back with a negative blog, but that's life and it has its ups and downs.

Things have not been great lately. I've kept quiet about much of it, just been in kind of a secluded, reflection time. I'm so grateful for life and even more so since I've been dealing with death all around. Last week my best friend and Soror's father passed away and I couldn't get to the funeral...I feel terrible. Car issues that immobilized me for days...disappointing. A friend of mine was found dead, floating in the water at a local park. As I was writing this my sister-in-law calls to tell me my brother's biological father passed too. Lord help. Sigh...

All this going on personally, but worldwide the spree of senseless crimes... Folks randomly spraying bullets into crowds, killing innocent people, blatant racism ("Don't Re-Nig" REALLY?) and I cannot even verbalize my sorrow and outrage about the unnecessary, hate crime shooting of Trayvon Martin. My heart hurts for our Black Men, young and old. I know folks are rallying, but I have never felt so's tragic.

It's downright depressing and the shit's gotta stop.

A couple of weeks ago, there was a message at church, "this is only a season". I know Pastor and I'm holding on to that...I need this one to move along. I'm ready for the next season. Aren't you? I know one thing...regardless of the season, I'll forever be sending knee-mails. Pray for me as I pray for you. Peace & JUSTICE. For real.

P.S. If you've been calling/texting me with nonsense...know your message has been deleted. Not in the mood.
