Shooting Him For The World To See

There has been a lot killings in the news this year, these past few months, weeks and days. It hurts me to the core. Yet I still pray hope and believe things will get better. I decided to write a song. This is my song I rewrote to the melody of "Killing Me Softly". I am not a singer, but I will try to or maybe get someone to sing it for me and post the video. This is how I feel about the killings. 

You changed their lives in one second
Shell casings found gunshots heard
Shooting him for the world to see
Shooting him for the world to see
Snuffed out his life with your actions
Shooting him for the world to see

A black man was killed today, for his family I pray
Please help the family be strong, as they begin to grieve
As they are left with memories, because bullets claimed his life

You changed their lives in one second
Shell casings found gunshots heard
Shooting him for the world to see
Shooting him for the world to see
Snuffed out his life with your actions
Shooting him for the world to see

People are enraged with anger, as they march in a crowd
Please see the hurt in their eyes as they cry and shout out loud
Our demand is simple it’s not much,…will you please stop killing us

You changed their lives in one second
Shell casings found gunshots heard
Shooting him for the world to see
Shooting him for the world to see
Snuffed out his life with your actions
Shooting him for the world to see

The family members scream

Whyyyyy?..... Whyyyyyyyy?
Why? Why? Why? Why?Why? Why?

Please Tell Me
Whyyyyy?.....Whyyyyy?
Whyyyyy?.....Whyyyyyyyy?

You changed their lives in one second
Shell casings found gunshots heard
Shooting him for the world to see
Shooting him for the world to see
Snuffed out his life with your actions
Shooting him for the world to see

You changed their lives
Shell casings found gunshots heard
Shooting him for the world to see
Shooting him for the world to see

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no

Being a Bold Leader

Stop and think about the following questions.   1. What does it mean to be bold? 2. What does it mean to be a leader?  3. Would you consider yourself bold, a leader or a bold leader?  There are several definitions and interpretations of what it means to be bold and to be a leader. My interpretation of being bold is not being afraid to take risks or make decisions (that lead to a positive result). I also think being bold is displaying confidence and courage as someone works to fulfill their purpose in the world. My interpretation of a leader is someone who has good organization skills which is required when working in a team setting or organization. I also think leaders stand behind their teams and works diligently to bring out the best in everyone. My interpretation of a bold leader is a combination of bold and leaders previously stated above. In addition, a bold leader is someone who has a clear vision, purpose, and a plan of action. It is someone who can get tho

What is happening to her? Puberty!

Today, our kids are exposed to so much information. Unfortunately, not all information is true and nor is the information from credible sources. However, discussions such as puberty among other topics should occur with the parents. Puberty is a very difficult stage for girls, boys and the family. They are very temperamental and often feel insecure. So as parents, it is our responsibility to reassure them that the changes they are going through emotionally, mentally and physically are normal. Puberty has reared its ugly head in my home. You would think I would be prepared since I have experienced this with my older daughter. The truth is I am prepared. However, I was not expecting it to happen so quickly. I have noticed kids are experiencing puberty a lot faster than in prior generations. Sadly, this has a lot to do with the meat and dairy. There are a lot of chemicals in our food and as a result of that, it is making our children develop a lot faster. As an adult, I do not recal
