  • 1.   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  –  Save  The  Children  2013  
  • 2.       Friday  is  sometimes  recognized  as  the  last  day  of  the  working  week.  We've  all  at  one   time  or  another  simply  let  our  guard  down  in  relief  when  this  day  comes  upon  us.   Across  the  entire  nation  people  are  going  through  so  many  things  and  quite   truthfully  none  of  us  are  exempt.  The  Trayvon  Martin  Trial  in  which  the  entire   especially  African  American  community  has  been  paying  very  close  attention  to  and   the  Aaron  Hernandez  indictment  which  all  followed  the  controversy  surrounding   the  Voting  Rights  Acts  decision.       Life  as  we've  come  to  know  it  has  changed  and  we  must  face  the  reality  of   consciously  as  a  collective  people  make  adjustments  as  individuals  in  order  to   survive.  All  people  whether  we  face  the  reality  of  this  fact  or  not  won't  work   together  this  is  true.  But  the  danger  of  contamination  and  especially  contagion  is   more  than  probable  when  we  continue  to  waste  time  fooling  ourselves.  It's  quite   simple  not  necessarily  everyone  would  love  a  better  life  some  are  driven  and  have  a   goal  set  where  the  objective  is  sadly  misery.  A  lot  of  people  are  suffering  and  many   because  of  what  others  are  saying  and  doing  maliciously  with  intent  to  hurt  even   individuals  they  were  once  acquainted  with  (family-­‐friend-­‐business,  etc).       Life  will  not  miraculously  change  suddenly  and  those  with  evil  in  their  hearts  will   suddenly  see  the  light  but  as  individuals  it  is  our  responsibility  to  stay  clear  of  those   who  we  know  for  a  fact  mean  nothing  but  harm  to  us,  the  sadly  do  exist.  Love  is   almost  perceive  today  as  if  it's  comparable  to  being  imbalanced  because  in  most   instance  you're  standing  alone  especially  when  you  claim  love  in  your  actions.  Many   people  speak  loudly  and  write  in  abundance  on  society  media  sites  and  networks   where  instant  acknowledgement  is  almost  therapeutic  to  some.       But  the  real  work  at  the  end  of  the  day  has  nothing  to  do  with  what  we'll  sometimes   expect  from  others  it's  all  up  to  you.  The  way  we  love  in  our  actions  and  gestures  not   necessarily  for  any  audience  it  starts  within  us.  They'll  be  people  who'll  read  this   and  laugh  or  even  disregard  it  in  all  due  respect  and  that's  fine  and  these  maybe   some  of  the  same  people  who  may  have  already  given  up.  Marvin  Gaye  wrote  a  song   years  ago  called  "Save  the  Children"  it  wasn't  very  popular  at  all  and  for  a  reason   and  that's  because  some  people  just  don't  want  to  hear  it.       Sadly  now  we're  living  it  and  please  don't  mistake  this  for  a  sermon  of  any  kind  or   speech.  And  as  Marvin  so  eloquently  states  in  the  song  "they'll  come  a  time  when  I   look  at  the  world,  it  fills  me  with  sorrow...children  today,  really  going  to  suffer   tomorrow".  Our  todays  shouldn't  imprison  our  babies  and  children's  tomorrows.   With  this  being  said  as  we  arrive  on  yet  another  Friday  let's  somehow  thing  about   maybe  what  we  can  do  every  Saturday  or  Sunday  morning  in  our  communities.   Meetings  and  speeches  being  given  by  the  same  people  over  and  over  again  have   and  won't  prove  or  do  anything  they're  useless.      
  • 3. Looking  into  the  eyes  of  people  just  as  committed  as  you  no  stages  no  fanfare   catching  these  kids  the  same  way  me  and  my  brothers  got  snatched  away  from  the   bosom  of  the  devil  when  we  were  kids.  I  don't  remember  any  politician  having   anything  to  do  with  that  I  remember  especially  the  people  in  my  neighborhood.   Made  no  difference  what  kind  of  job  they  didn't  have  or  worked  everyday  the  last   thing  a  young  kids  thinking  about  on  a  Saturday  morning  is  discriminating   particularly  against  anyone  trying  to  help.       I  remember  my  mother  and  other  mothers  or  fathers  in  the  neighborhood  knowing   each  and  every  kid  in  the  neighborhood  by  name.  One  thing  I  am  very  appreciative   of  is  when  I  was  in  the  area  I  lived  in  for  almost  3  years  I  knew  every  kid  in  the  area   from  5  thru  20  years  old  and  they  surely  knew  me.  I  expected  nothing  and  only   wanted  one  thing  in  return  and  that  was  for  them  to  know  I  was  there  every  day.  On   Sundays  I  cleaned  the  streets  everyday  that  the  city  wouldn't  thoroughly  clean  and   sometimes  people  would  look  at  me  like  I  was  crazy.  But  during  the  time  I  spent  on   Sunday  cleaning  I  always  kept  one  thing  next  to  me  and  I  am  pretty  sure  every  kid   saw  this  as  well.  I  keep  my  Bible  right  in  sight  because  whatever  most  of  perceive  to   be  hard  work  and  getting  our  hands  dirty  can't  even  compare  to  sacrifices  that  have   been  made  for  each  one  of  us.       Guilty  is  a  word  that  won’t  be  used  especially  when  a  mirror  is  held  directly  in  ones   face  but  how  many  times,  I  repeat  how  many  times  will  especially  people  elected  to   be  held  accountable  be  able  to  do  the  same  thing?  People  who  were  removed  from   positions  for  a  reason  are  then  appointed  back  into  the  same  power  they  abused?   Over  and  over  again  in  cities  all  around  the  nation  the  same  thing  happens  over  and   over  again  problems  aren’t  just  recycled  so  are  politics  and  the  people  chosen   specifically  to  become  a  part  of  it  have  been  for  reason  and  it  should  never  be   forgotten.     Almost  more  than  3  years  ago  I  met  a  brilliant  individual  driven  not  to  fail  and  I  was   pretty  sure  he  wouldn’t  because  he  was  meticulous  at  well  rehearse  at  everything.  I   work  closely  day  and  night  with  him  to  develop  a  program  to  benefit  young  men  and   one  day  he  told  me  just  like  this.  “If  you  stick  with  me  I  guarantee  a  6  figure  salary   only  thing  you  need  to  do  is  stick  with  me  because  I  won’t  loose”.  Truthfully  even   back  than  and  what  actually  inspired  my  working  with  this  type  individual  was  it   was  obvious  losing  wasn’t  an  objective.  But  sadly  if  winning  means  to  administer   welts  to  the  backs  of  each  and  everyone  in  order  to  make  a  vision  reality  I’ll  choose   (which  I  did)  to  pass.  And  in  time  as  closets  open  widely  and  people  are  expose  not   only  for  what  they  do  behind  close  doors  but  who  they  truly  are  solace  may  be   found  but  once  again  it  will  be  at  the  expense  of  the  people.                
  • 4.   And  in  many  especially  urban  communities  nationally  that’s  the  problem  the   disingenuously  deceptive  individuals  that  exist  right  in  our  communities  who  will   have  and  continue  to  sell  everything  out.  And  their  scent  is  concealed  by  the  many   gratuities  and  they’ve  been  smart  enough  to  give  to  those  who’ve  bought  into  the   same  Willie  Lynch  like  behavior.  And  what’s  very  or  should  be  very  obvious   hopefully  by  now  is  that  a  totally  different  approach  must  be  taken  in  order  to  weed   out  these  type  individuals  because  greed  will  always  supersede  need.       The  continuance  of  sitting  around  pretending  as  if  backdoor  lobbyist  don’t  exist  will   guarantee  one  thing  they’ll  live  long  and  prosperous  lives  stepping  on  the  collective   backs  of  communities  throughout  the  nation.  These  individuals  need  not  to  be   named  because  everyone  knows  exactly  who  they  are  but  are  fearful  of  them   decisions  are  made  and  livelihoods  are  paved  by  these  people.  And  it’s  pretty   apparent  that  after  the  dust  clears  on  most  magic  shows  called  campaigns  when   they  conclude  it  becomes  painfully  obvious  that  the  new  ride  might  be  even  bumpier   than  that  of  the  previous  one  contrary  to  the  hype.     Friendship  has  proven  time  and  time  again  to  be  a  distraction  in  most  cases  when   politics  are  involved  and  it  will  never  change  whether  we  want  to  face  this  reality  or   not.  Like  an  itch  people  sometimes  have  a  tendency  to  believe  that  the  temporary   comfort  of  a  scratch  although  it  is  soothing  will  make  us  forget  the  itch.       Itches  eventually  becomes  rashes  and  are  proven  to  be  contagious  so  watch  out  with   whom  you  make  contact  with  or  especially  touch.     It's  time  to  stand  together  a  once  in  a  while  meeting  or  candlelight  visual  or  parade   or  ceremony  to  celebrate  anything  means  absolutely  nothing.  Politics  will  never   transform  a  community  the  people  will  it's  about  cultivation  not  administration   growth  is  nature  not  enforced.  Cities  will  change  but  be  careful  bloodlines  might   disappear  as  well  if  we  continue  to  trust  in  what  people  have  branded  any   individual(s)  to  represent.     Save  The  Children  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1tN0ZKnRgs     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL   (The  Way  Humanity/Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
