What do you think about Sorority Sisters ? Want to hear your feedback

There was a show that aired on VH1 about Black Greek Sororities Sister

People were in an uproar who had pledged in the Greek organizations

Others who never pledged but seen it as an exploitation of Black women in a negative view taken

away from the purpose of what these organizations stand for.

What do you think?

If you haven't seen it you can check it out on YouTube. You can go to OnDemand.

There is a protest taking place on tweeter to the advertisers of these shows

Let me know what you think?

Fear For My Sons

Fear For My Sons

Though I didn't birth you I see you as my sons

Some are Ivy league and others from the block

Walking down the street you're judged

Walking into a store you're followed because you aren't supposed to be there

It is 2014 and times are supposed to have changed

Why does it feel like it's 1950's and I can't sit at the counter of the diner

Fear For My Sons

So many are taken away by gun shots or police brutality

So many are taken away by hands of their own race

I fear for you because turning 21 is rare

That your Mother has to bury you and it should be the other way around

I fear for you that you will be in jail one time and it becomes a way of life

That you won't be able to cope out here

Fear For My Sons

That you won't get gray hair

That you won't see your children graduate

That you won't walk your daughter down the aisle

That you will be a innocent by stander in the wrong place

That you won't have the liberty to have it filmed by others to know what happen

That you can't lift your hands because you will get shot

That you can say officer I am a officer too

See I might not have birthed you but my tears shed for you

This is dedicated to all the men who lost their lives too soon

Stu Taylor Interview

For my book Through the Fire

You are able to purchase paperback or ebook

This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

Sitting at the window wondering what is next
What will the future hold?
People are being laid off
Houses are being foreclosed on
More people are sleeping in their cars
Though it might seem like you are at the end of the road
This too shall pass
Children are being gunned down at school
Schools where  you think they are safe
They are going to get an education
Someone decides to shoot first
This too shall pass
Food prices going up
More and more can’t afford to eat
Parents forgoing so that their children have something
Oh when will this end?
Planes dropping
Cars crashing
Trains off track
Afraid to turn on the TV because there is something else
The world is looking for an answer
Hear the elders saying stay on your knees and pray

This too shall pass

Sing Me A Love Song

Sing Me A Love Song

Sitting here close to you

The lights are dim

The music is playing

Our bodies are close

Feeling the  energy between us

I hear you singing in my ear

I close my eyes

Sing Me A Love Song

You know the one that makes me want to slow dance

You know the one that makes me want to sing along

You know the one like they used to play on the radio

Your arm comes around my shoulder

I feel secure

You pull me in closer

You're happy

I am happy

This feels right

Come on dear

Sing Me A Love Song

Interview with Coach Deb Bailey

Listen to interview by Coach Deborah Bailey with Special Guest Patricia A. Saunders

If I Should

If I Should     

At the cross roads wanting to leap out on faith

What if I should let the walls down to fall in love?

What if I should be vulnerable to heartbreak?

What if I should change careers at this point in life?

What if I should travel the world?

You will never know if you don’t try

You will never know if you don’t trust

You will never know if you don’t leap

You will never know what you should do if you don’t listen to the 

voice within

Not everyone will hurt you

To love is what we were meant to do

Travel the world can be as easy as watching a movie, reading a 

book, or jumping on a plane

We put too much pressure on ourselves for something that is 

Breathe and let it happen

Next time you ask yourself if you should

Answer Yes!

Living on the Edge

Living on the Edge   

Life is worth living

When you were a kid do you remember climbing the tree to the top?

Hiking the mountain

Swimming out to the deep end of the pool

You didn’t know what fear was

Somewhere as you aged someone told you be careful
You don’t want to hurt yourself

So you started to limit your life

You started being cautious

You weren’t living to the fullest

So I say let the kid come back into your life

Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone

So while you are not taking those chances

Life is speeding by

If you said to me you have 6 months to live

Why would I start living on the edge?

Why would I want to do everything that I was afraid to do?

Come on!

Start living on the edge and live

During the holiday season people are running around purchasing gifts for love ones
My question is what are you thankful for?
Does it matter what you drive? Where you live? Who your friends are?
My question is are you happy?
If I could change three things in life what would it be?
I would want everyone to be at peace
Not to judge someone for the color of their skin
Not to punish someone for their beliefs
I would then have to be ready for the response
What would the universe come back with?
Instead of going broke trying to fulfill someone’s wish be thankful that you have each other.
Make them something.
Sometimes during the holidays you have those who have lost a love one
They might have problems seeing the good when they are so sad
Give them a hug
Call them and let them know you care
Let them know you are thankful for them being here
Instead of making it so huge that you feel that you can’t compete
Make it worthwhile and make it meaningful
I am thankful for the air that I breathe because someone is struggling for that breath
I am thankful for my health because someone is having the last rites read over them
I am thankful for shelter because there is someone lying on the sidewalk trying to sleep
I am thankful
