RIP Phife Dawg


Thank you for sharing your gift with us. You helped narrate my early adulthood. Rest easy without sickness or pain.

Say a Little Prayer


After Mali, Burkina Faso, Paris, Ivory Coast, Brussels, Nigerian displacement camps, Tunisia and too many others, I sent up an impromptu prayer in the shower this morning. I asked for healing for families of the slain and yes, I prayed for the killers, jihadists, terrorists however you want to label them. I asked that God or Yahweh, Jah or Allah change their hearts and make them understand that the Creator does not want terror in their name.

I encourage us all to do it – even if you don’t pray! Send peaceful thoughts…we have to be in this together.

There Are Still Good People

This Tweet halted my late-morning Hootsuite headline scan.



I clicked the short link and read the article, periodically wiping my tearing eyes. This is an excerpt from Deborah Greene’s blog post.

Such stories give me hope. 🙂
