The UNION Is In A STATE…

The UNION Is In A STATE…

During President Obama’s State of the Union Address this Evening, January 25, 2011, he will discuss investing and or spending, and the topic of investing/spending for Education will most likely come up. This topic of discussion seems to have caused some consternation amongst Republicans in past months because they don’t see the need for investing/spending on education. This to Me is ridiculous because it seems that EDUCATION should be at the top of the list of things to invest in for America. Educational Investing/Spending would allow everyone to get an optimal education making America, and Americans, more competitive in a World market and putting individuals in a better position as far as being prepared to handle or live everyday life.

‘Why shouldn’t everyone have the best Education they can get?’

I’ve heard it said that some don’t want the ‘minorities’ in America to have the BEST Education that they can receive because it makes them too competitive in our Society and causes them the chance to advance. Minorities should just continue to be IGNORANT, never have Unity and continue committing GENOCIDE through violence, drugs and sex. ‘Competing with whom? Other Americans…?’  I hear this and Pray that it’s not a TRUTH, that it’s only Blindness in the eyes of a few, but then I’m most likely ‘Hoping Against Hope’ and will be the one that is Blind…

If the statement that I heard is TRUTH its Terrifyingly Sad but what’s more Saddening than that is the fact that Minorities fall for it or play right into it because of their actions and the way that they choose to live. Now I understand that a lot of individuals amongst the number of Minorities believe that they have to choose the way of life they live because ‘someone’ is holding them back from obtaining an Education and allowing them the opportunity to advance in life but this type of thinking or belief has to STOP or CHANGE because as long as Minorities have this mindset, knowing that another person or group doing ALL that they can to hold another back is Wrong and the fact of Minorities BELIEVING it as TRUTH amongst themselves is Wrong, things will never CHANGE or get better.

When we, Minorities or anyone for that matter, sees that they are being WRONGED by another it is not the time to be quiet and just allow it to happen, believing it as TRUTH and playing into it…Its time to stand and do ALL that you can in a Civilized and Peaceful manner to find a resolution that will work for ALL involved.  As long as Minorities continue to do as they have done and continue to do at present, playing into the LIE and making it TRUTH amongst their numbers, not saying to themselves, ‘This is enough! This cannot be the way things are supposed to be! It’s time to take a stand and bring about a CHANGE for the better for ALL,’ things won’t CHANGE, like President Obama hoped and pressed for in his campaign and Education will not be what America chooses to Invest or Spend its money on.

And, anyone that has the belief that ‘You will be better off by holding another back, whether individual or group, by whatever means you try to stop their progression,’ you are Wrong for thinking you should or could do this to another and your ‘COMEUPPANCE’ is around the bend.

People…America…We need to ‘Wake Up,’ come together in Unity and bring about a CHANGE for us ALL or we’ll forever be LOST!

SUCCESS: Is It Really Green?

MoneySUCCESS, IS IT REALLY GREEN?

                Why is this image the badge of success? Is this everyone’s idea of success? Success, is it really Green? I fail to believe it is or has to be…

            Money, in today’s World, if you have it you are labeled as ‘SUCCESSFUL’ because with that money you have the ability to buy cars, elaborate homes, name brand clothing, take trips to exotic locales, be in VIP, do many things that you could not do without it. Is this actually the sign of success? All this shows me is that you are successful at spending the money you have obtained and this clouds people’s vision about what success is and what it is they should be in pursuit of to gain success.

            Success doesn’t have to be in the form of money or in the form of spending it on material things. One can be successful or find success in many ways, such as; one can be successful at being a great parent, as a team player, as a graduate from an addiction program, as a gardener, as an individual that goes through therapy and comes out on the other side a better person or simply going through their life and not succumbing to becoming a statistic or through status quo. None of the above has monetary value attached to them; simply a feeling of accomplishment and that to me is success.

            The pursuit of success in the form of money in today’s society, I feel, is the root of so many of the ills we face in our society. The chasing of the ‘ALL MIGHTY DEAD PRESIDENTS’ causes so many people to turn to whatever means possible to gain that level or badge of success, in the form of crime, dishonesty, the abuse of other people and the selling out of self. We have instilled in the youth, as well as adults, that if you do not have money you are not successful or that you won’t be a success until you have money. This example leads to greed and selfishness, tainting our humanness and our equal treatment of others.

            It should be pressed upon all of us that success comes in various forms, not just money. Success is a ‘feeling’ that one has about his or her accomplishments in life. If money is your idea of success, then that is your prerogative but don’t be fooled or frightened into thinking that is the only form of SUCCESS.

            …I pray you all success in whatever form you find it. Remember, it’s your success and no one else’s.
