Everyone I know who have visited South Africa say that it’s the most beautiful place in the world . The culture , the people. But this wouldn’t be possible with out this mans leadership. As a child I boycotted apartheid with my parents ! Watched with happiness at his release . And rejoiced his presidency . I do not mourn his passing.. I CELEBRATE HIS LIFE !Rest well sir..

Morning thoughts & rant!
I’m glad I’m not a teen growing up in 2013. Aside from the fact superhero films & the technology are the greatest it’s ever been, Flat screens , Navigation & Smartphones (all of which I predicted and wished for as a kid) life seems pretty wack. Kids have to deal with all types of other stuff.. Take Bullies , back in the day if you had a bully you go smack them in the faceand that’s it… No more bully! Now kids are to scared to even do that.. In fear of getting shot , stabbed or what ever.. And now there is the cyber Bully .. You know the one who sends mass texts about a kids indiscretions or mistakes driving the kid to kill them selves… That damn near NEVER happened when I was young. And dating .. Me I like a certain type of woman . My taste leans toward a natural look. Now a days a kid has to wonder ” is her hair real? Are those really her boobs? Dag she looks so different in the morning.. Wait that’s not your real butt???” I NEVER even had to think about worrying about that! Hahaha
And music .. I grew up in a time when hip hop was young and and there were only about 25 rappers and at least 20 were truly legendary out the gate!!! Didn’t need more than one album to prove it! We had Mike Jackson , Stevie , Whitney, Luther , Sade, PRINCE , and a whole slew of artists like Marvin & James Brown who were way before my time but i loved like they were new… I’m sorry I don’t care how many downloads someone has , no artist today gives that feeling like those guys! And even as a teen we would go out , do stuff.. Be active .. Now parents my age are too scared to let their kids out because of all this craziness or are too scared to discipline the kid because of DHS hahaha . If you don’t have the newest game or Facebook your not doing anything … Unless you have some crappy teenager job. And the food we ate wasn’t the healthiest but at least it wasn’t making us 1000x fatter that what we were supposed to be. I remember being in school and there was 1-5 bigger kids .. And they weren’t even THAT big.. Now there are about 5 skinny kids in a class! It’s the food we eat these days .Its giving kids illnesses and allergies we’ve never seen when we were young. And drugs… We had the weed heads (which never made it public , they did that stuff in their bedrooms , late night in the park or OUTSIDE of a party) Your drinkers ..same rule applied as the weed heads and then your Crack Heads… We all know what happens to them. Now, it’s what ever . Rappers & singers promote it.. Kids wanna be these rappers & singers so they do it.. And lastly TV .. I’m sorry we had a perfect balance of shows none of which show anyone in a demoralizing light… Even our ONE reality show (the real world) had its balance . Now … It’s what ever … The dumber the better & we just soak it all in… So I’m saying ALLL THIS TO SAY… I’m glad I grew up in a time that showed me what greatness actually is. Showing me that greatness allows me to see PAST all this Bull Shit (sorry mom) out here.. I’m done .. Carry on.
