A Perspective on ‘Black Panther’ and James Brown Star Chadwick Boseman (RIP)
“Purpose crosses disciplines. Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history.” — Chadwick Boseman (Nov. 29, 1976 – Aug. 28, 2020)
I know it’s been asked countless times already, but hasn’t the year 2020 been something else? I’m putting it very modestly. The passing of Los Angeles Lakers great, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the other seven passengers who died in the helicopter crash. The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and Tony McDade. I definitely can’t fail to mention the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that continues to wreak havoc on the world. Now it’s Chadwick Boseman, who starred as King T’Challa in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” died at the age of 43 following a four-year battle with colon cancer.Continue reading “A Perspective on ‘Black Panther’ and James Brown Star Chadwick Boseman (RIP)”

Happy New Year 2020: We All Want More, But What Is It That You DON’T want?
Happy New Year friends and family! I hope you brought in 2020 with abundant energy and positive thoughts. As I read over some of the posts left by my friends, family members and inspirational people that I follow on my social media platforms, I noticed there was a common theme. We all want better health, lucrative opportunities, increased prosperity, world travel, more quality time spent with our loved ones… and then there’s still YOU.Continue reading “Happy New Year 2020: We All Want More, But What Is It That You DON’T want?”
Happy New Year 2019! New Aspirations. New Promises. Rekindled Hopes.
As I say goodbye to 2018, a year that has taught me so much through both pain and gratitude, I’m reflecting on this humbling moment in remembrance of family and close friends who’s physical presence are no longer among us. I desperately say to you all that we have to find a way to be swift to forgive, to love abundantly, pursue your passions relentlessly and to create bravely.Continue reading “Happy New Year 2019! New Aspirations. New Promises. Rekindled Hopes.”
“Terror has no religion.” “The whole world is my native land.” “I love Brussels.”
The above words were some of the many messages of solidarity, defiance and peace that was inscribed in chalk on the city streets of Bourse Square after the Brussels attacks. Make no mistake… this was a cold, calculated attack– in which ISIS (The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) is claiming responsibility for this heinous act. It’s scary to think how this could have happened anywhere in the world. Tokyo, Madrid, Moscow, Toronto, Berlin, Los Angeles, New York City… just pick any city with a major media and cultural market.
Most of us get on social media and scream, “when will it end?” “We need to come together.” “We want justice, equality and peace.” “Why won’t humanity love and respect each other for their religious, political, social and sexual preferences?” Correct me if I’m wrong, but the only thing that arguably makes us different from each other is the language we speak and the God(s) we pray to. Once we get a universal understanding that we are all the same, society will always suffer under a state of separation. Perhaps, that’s the biggest issue that plagues humanity right now and could possibly signal the end of our existence.Continue reading ““Terror has no religion.” “The whole world is my native land.” “I love Brussels.””
