La vie est belle

Ask me anything   Submit   Life is full of surprises, which is the reason as to why we must strive to see the evening moonlight, and wake up to the morning sunshine. Breathing the morning air and looking towards a productive day could not get any better than by knowing that there is something that needs to be done not only for your self, but for the significant others. Don't prioritize someone if you are only their option, for it will only bring hardship to you and not to that other person. Do not let someone mold you into who they want to portray you as....

    Sitting in the same exact spot that President Lincoln would sit to relax during his time as a Representative of Illinois and as a President, right by this fireplace. Now a room in the US Capitol - sitting right next to the old House Chambers, that hasn’t been open to anyone until recently - it serves as the office for the House Majority Whip, the 4th person in succession to the Presidency of the United States. #Lincoln #USCapitolTour #NightAtTheCapitol #CancerLobbyDay #GMSACSDelegation #FromComptonToTheCapitol #ADreamComeTrue #OneDay #ItsMyDestiny

    " … But experience has taught me that you cannot value dreams according to the odds of their coming true. Their real value is in stirring within us the will to aspire. That will, wherever it finally leads, does at least move you forward. And after a time you may recognize that the proper measure of success is not how much you’ve closed the distance to some far-off goal but the quality of what you’ve done today." -US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor #SCOTUS  (at United States Supreme Court Building)

    Obama’s Prime Time speech on ISIS. Missed the first 3 mins of it so I sure need I get back to analyze it. ‘Merica leading a broad coalition to address the issue in the Middle East. Only using airpower and supporting folk on the front line. “America is better position today to seize the future than any other country on Earth.” And he threw some facts about job growth that even Reagan can’t compare with. Thoughts? #Obama #PrimeTime #ISIS #Merica #ForeignPolicy #StayPoliticallyActive

    With 79 votes just counted, the Amendment (S.J Res 19) advances and now needs to get a majority in the House before it’s passed on to Obama to be signed! SJ Res 19, also known as Democracy Is For All Amendment, will eliminate the influence of big money (corporations and the ultra wealthy like the Koch Brothers) in our political system via the overturn of Citizens United and similar cases, ensuring that we have a government that is of, by, and for the people. Get money out of politics, and we’ll be able to get progressive solutions in our society! #GetMoneyOut #DemocracyIsForAll #OfByForThePeople #CorporationsAreNotPeople #MoneyIsNotSpeech

    Foreword by Brother West on Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow.” Rereading this for the nth time and every time I read that passage, it has me thinking: “What if we focused our priorities on where they really matter and affect us all? What if we weren’t being pushed out (not drop out) of school and thrown into this prison pipeline?” #TheNewJimCrow #CornelWest #Foreword #WeBeingPushedOut #EducateDontIncarcerate
