Celebration of Life For Stan Sanders: Pictures

I wanted to share these pics from the Celebration of Life for my Beloved Dear Friend, Stan Sanders. On this day, there was so many "strange" occurrences that took place before the Celebration. It seemed as though the enemy was really working in attempting to not make this celebration take place. However, we knew that Stan was on our side and we had the power of God on our side so we refused to let it stop us. Right at the exact moment when we began to hear the music of Dr. Rikki Byers Beckwith playing on the Piano harmoniously followed by the soothing hymns of legendary soul singer, Brenda Lee Eager, we knew that everything was going to be alright! Rev. Dr. Bernard Beckwith walked in and everyone felt his spiritual presence. The program just had a gracious flow. I had written a poem for Stan entitled " A Tribute to a Serving King" that is exactly what Stan was. Comedianne Luenell spoke about the love that Brandy and Stan shared.

Corrective Knowledge

First, I would like to say that this video was really disturbing. I really cannot comprehend how the words "corrective" and "rape" coincide in the first place. There is absolutely nothing "corrective" about rape. There is nothing corrective about taking something valuable and precious without consent. Question "so these individuals decided to apply "corrective" means to correct the lifestyles of these women?? So who is going to enforce the "Corrective" punishment for these individuals???

We, as a society/community have not been able to stop this vicious cycle of trying to correct each

Space Invaders

A reflection of who we are Is looking at the people that we choose to be in our "inner circle" We choose these individuals-Family and Friends that we surround ourselves with So maybe it's time to take a close look If these individuals are negative, back stabbers, shady,drama queens, dishonest, deceitful, haters, angry and the list goes on and on. Then guess what you are bringing into your life just by "choosing" these people to invade your space. I know you may look at some of these people and say "How can I walk away? Or I know that he /she or they may be that way but one day they will see. See what??? That they are draining your energy, your life, YOU because they are not happy with theirs. I am saying....Really think about it. Who is looking out for you? Who is helping you achieve your goals? Who has your back? When you are down who is there to lift you up??? You can walk away one step at a time. With each small step backing away you are taking a huge s

Living in the Moment

For many of us life is nothing but ...go, go, GO!!!! It seems as if there is never enough time to accomplish the tasks needed to achieve your goals. Hence frustration, irritation, and sometimes anger is brought forth. Therefore to put all of these things at ease, Stop and take a deep breathe Admire your environment. Find the beauty in even in the struggles of any situations You have come this far You have the strength to go on. Smile... Anything else is just a waste of time!!! Keep Ya Head Up-2PAC
