I am a survivor of covid!

Social media is rife with crazy posts (“Oh, the government is trying to take away our freedoms, dotty, dot) disparaging the wearing masks mandate, the vaccine, etc — but these reactions to a complex and nuanced issue are doing more damage than the greater good.

On December 10 of 2020, I came down with the virus. Covid is indeed a reality. Our freedoms are not entwined in “me-me-me-perspectives,” and some of us can not keep on down this road of “They are taking away our freedoms” in the way of our safety. How silly…


Telfar Clemens And The Case For Dual Citizenship in Liberia.

Telfar Clemens is a Liberian-American 🇱🇷🇺🇸, but went out of his way for the love of his parents’ country (Liberia) to put Liberia’s Olympic team on the map. Due to Telfar, we ended up in The New York Times and this time the stories were different, a positive image. He didn’t have to do that especially in a country where some politicians put their pockets first than their fellow citizens. But, guess what? He did! That’s love ❤️ beyond measures. …


For Wida, it has always been about music. Jeddah, home. Rizal, roots. Her sound, out of this world. Something like a conundrum. Just she and her guitar — and Wida was always a rhythm, never just an artist, but a model, student, etc. — conjured up images of the world at large, from Jeddah to Rizal. Her success has stirred talk from GMA (One of The Biggest Entertainment networks) in the Philippines. To compound the problem, Wida — the Artist — is a drop-dead talented soul, which obviously means she had made some kind of soul-crafted deal with the Iblis…


The Unsolved Question Of Christianity.

But who really told some of you to go out there and brainwashed the rest of the world that a brown skin Middle Eastern Jewish man called “Jesus” (Yeshua) was European? Couldn’t the Aryan race accept the fact of a brown skin Middle Eastern Jewish man being their God? Jesus was not (White) a European, he was a brown skin middle eastern man.

Takedown colonial pictures from South and central-American, African, and Southeast Asian churches. Period! Jesus was a brown skin middle eastern man! Where was he from? Israel, the Middle East. And he sure…

1. Believe in a higher power, God, or whatever you believe in. As for me, it’s “GOD.”
2. Focus on Goals, not boastfulness. To do so, start with a vision board, and list out the dreams (goals) that you want to accomplish.
3. Educate yourself and don’t take shortcuts. Break the bad habits of the lazies.
4. Find what you love, pursue, and work hard at it. Determination is the key, even when things fall apart.
5. Consistency will get you there. Failed once, twice, or more; that’s the school of (thoughts) life. …


This pandemic teaches us that we, as the human race, are all in this together. Our lives have been affected in some way or the other. And, if we don’t learn to love our fellow Americans and live in peace and harmony with each other, in times like these, we’ll perish. Hate got us here. Some of you and your racist grandparents freaked out due to Obama’s Presidency. “Oh, we are losing our country?!!” Our country?! Some of you didn’t vote, and for those of you who did, you picked a bankrupt businessman who didn’t have any clue of what…


One thing that you should know is this; there isn’t a bigger motivator than hunger. The hunger to succeed becomes more significant when you are determined to see failures as motivation and keep going. Not easily giving up; it’s the key. To get there, one must realize that some of the most renowned minds come from struggles, and some of the most outstanding achievements come from areas of dreams with less, solely based on creating more. Despite cultures around the world, people’s needs are pretty much the same. They need food, shelter, free education, freedom, etc. …
