Happy Birthday MLK!

Today I arose earlier than usual for a Wednesday, considering that my first class begins at 12:20 and I usually Sleep in till 10:30, all in honor of my esteemed University's Annual Martin Luther King Convocation. If you weren't aware today is his birthday and FAMU chooses to honor our great leader's memory annually through this convocation, which includes, a re-enactment of that famous "I Have a Dream" Speech.

Though I did attend, I was a little late :/, but i did get a lot of good inspirational nuggets, and very much enjoyed the fellowship of my fellow Rattlers, as we sung We Shall Overcome, and Our Schools Alma Mater. It Wonderful seeing my fellow African Americans, as well as other races come together in such a way that truly reflect how far we have come.
The Central Theme of all the Awards, and Speeches seemed to be the same, though we all can count off the amazing and inspiring think MLK Jr. and other Great Activist did to move our people forward and inspire...What have you been doing to keep that dream alive?
A receipt from The Dream Defenders, whose name I didn't catch, reminded us all of how we came together to bring Justice for the Martin Family, but that there was much more work to be done before, and after, that landmark trial. He had us all chant "I believe that we will" and I hope that we believed the words we spoke.

Kendrick Meek, a former Florida State Representative, delivered a beautiful speech on the Power FAMU has used so well, to help people who, as he said
  "Weren't fortunate enough to attend this esteemed university"
He spoke on not wasting the time God gave you, and how service, commitment, and good will, are what make changes, and used an excellent quote by Michael Eric Dyson, to drive the point home.
"You've got to make religion act right,your sprit act right, and stand up for what you know is right!"
Now that's what I call, Keeping the Dream Alive.

 Convocation ended appropriately with the Marching 100's rendition of Stevie Wonders "Happy Birthday To You." So, Happy Birthday Martin Luther King, your legacy inspires us all to be greater, than they ever throught we could.

Wish. Hope. Pray.

When 11:11 strikes, I always make a Wish, lol don't judge  I know y'all do it too.
Even though it's a Wish, I always feel like I'm praying, I mean it is hoping for something, and trying to make it feel like it could one day be possible, Kinda of like a prayer...
Birthday Candles  and shooting Stars all these little things that make us wish.

I remember on 11/11/11 (November 11,2011), I was in High School....and everybody was in the cafeteria...just watching the clock...by the second...by the minute....

Waiting to make that wish.


It felt like the ULTIMATE wish lol 

I wish I could remember what I wished for...

Freshman Year, during the Presidential Elections, I remember I wished that Obama would win.
 E v e r y t i me I Caught the Clock!

11:11 "I wish Obama wins the Election" 

Lol your welcome Guys :) 


When your wishing, your praying. And believing that your wishes will come true. 

It may sound a little, Magical World of Disney, lol but seriously, Wishing never hurt anybody.

I mean ever wish doesn't come true...but it never hurt to believe.
So the next time you catch the Clock,close your eyes and make that wish :)
Wish for something you want and believe that if it's in the plan....

It might just come true :)

In the past I can't lie...I've wished on love...time and time...every time I catch that time lol
But lately, I've been wishing a little Different...

I been wishing on my Career Goals, For more Determination, I guess you could say...less Selfish things. I mean if these wishes do have the possibility of coming true, and if I am hon to use my Disney Magic to try and believe them to be...


 Maybe I should wish a little better, Maybe I should try, to wishing a little better... Wish would make me believe better...which would make me do better :) .
Wishes are such a funny thing, but maybe that's just the Kid in me, but I do believe that Wishes are the framework for dreams to come true...Just think about the Make a Wish Foundation

Those are the things I want to come true...Those are the things that I want to pray for.
Unselfish Wishes, or at least productive wishes,every time I catch the clock, and every time I close my eyes.




What If She Never Did?

What if Eve had never bit the apple?
What if we still lived in the Garden, with no knowledge if Evil or Sin?
If Eve had never bit the apple life would be much different.
We'd live in Paradise amongst the animals
No Pain. No Evil. No sin.  
Oh but how enticing the Tree of Life must of been.
Forbidden Fruit taste so much sweeter,
Or so we'd like to believe, Or so Satan whispers to us, as he whispered to eve...
No one Knows how life would be 
If Eve never bit that Apple.
If the Snake never told her sweet lies of what could be.
If Adam never did the same
If they had just listened to God.
Obeyed his ONE Rule
And remained in the Garden,
In paradise.
God Knows, but he knows everything else as well.
He knew she would bite that apple.
He knew the snake would slither his way into her thoughts.
Clouding her mind.
Making her want to Sin.
He also see's you bite that apple.
Every time you think a mean thought.
 Every time you tell a lie.
Every time you Sin.
God knows that were not perfect.
He sees the snakes around us.
He knows that sometimes we'll give in.
So he Sacrificed his son for us.
So that every time we do bite the Apple.
We can be born again.
