Hello On-line family and friends: A Joyous and Happy Easter to you and yours.
of Christians around the globe this is a very special time of
celebration due to the Resurrection of their Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ from the dead. It’s a celebration of the Lord’s
triumph over sin and death, the forgiveness of sins, and the “opening
up of the gates of heaven to all God’s Children.”
Most importantly; it is a celebration of faith, hope, and the
promise of eternal life!
So many of you,
including a number of our personal friends and associates have
successfully made it through their spiritual struggle, abstinence, and
self-denial of quite a few things in life during Lent; and this
special holy week (Easter week) represents JOY, the FULFILLMENT
OF YOUR FAITH and the BEGINNING OF NEW LIFE.
Moreover; on the special day called “Easter Sunday”
the resurrection of the Lord promises that sin, death, and evil did
not concur your lives…but instead the resurrection promises that
Christians…”All God’s Children”…can live NOW
because Christ lives.
I have stated on numerous occasions during this season of Lent [Easter;] for me personally is a time of transcendence and transformation. Undeniably, it’s a time to reflect on, and assess everything in my life; and fully cleanse spiritually (my heart, soul, mind, spirit) so that I can start ANEW. Yes, IT IS the time for Renewal, Rebirth and the Rebuilding of ONE's life.
On this 2012 Easter Holiday, kindly share in the blessings of Easter! Do have a joyous and blessed time this year, and we wish you all the sweet and simple pleasures of the season.
During this time it is absolutely appropriate to examine the problem areas of our lives and prepare our hearts for RENEWAL.
Empty ourselves of our false pride and the rationalization that prevent us from seeing that we are in need of perfect tendencies. We also seek to open ourselves up to the higher power in our lives and we allow this higher power to deal with our problem areas in a more focused and intense way. We place our life, needs, fears, failures, and hopes in the hands of the higher power. Repentance must be our primary focus; and love, hope and gratitude should motivate us to achieve total atonement – To atone for all the wrongs that we have done! Indeed “Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.”
REBIRTH is upon us; so that we could work on the foundations of our faith, and our way of life [in order for us to live better and do better.] Full of blessings and peace we begin new again; with more compassion, patience, positivity, humility and with hope that our lives are filled with happiness and continued blessings.
- We then focus on REBUILDING. In fact, we make peace with our enemies; apologize with sincerity and openness, embrace and shake hands~~~to shake off the differences, reconnect the broken links to bridge the gap and bury the differences, and build on our friendships~while spreading goodwill. Additionally, while rebuilding we must lead a life of righteousness, sincerity and honesty. Finally and most importantly, we must focus on rebuilding our dreams.
"The benefits [of the resurrection] and innumerable. To list a few: Our illnesses don't seem nearly so final; Our fears fade and lose their grip; Our grief over those who have gone on is diminished; Our desires to press on in spite of the obstacles is rejuvenated...Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal voice" He is risen, indeed". Quote by Charles Swindoll , Author, Educator Radio Preacher
4th, was an important day in the United States of America
and around the world for many; because an important man, The Rev.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life was selfishly taken 44 years
ago on this day [in 1968.]
From all accounts, it was the saddest day for millions of
people…it was the day our leader…a brave man; a fighter of equal
rights and justice for all was assassinated.
reflect on his life, his unfortunate death; and even at the week the
anniversary of his death falls on this year [during this holy week.]
I couldn’t help but focus on the similarities of Dr. King and
Jesus Christ. It is
clear they were leaders and prophets (some would adamantly say Dr.
King was a prophet); full of faith; encouraged many…and gave
hope; was a true servant to the people; spoke
out against what was unjust, wicked, and what was wrong; took risks;
and eventually both made the ultimate sacrifice!
I found the following statement to be absolutely true “Jesus
died on a cross; and Dr. King took up a cross and died bearing that
Let’s keep Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s memory alive; and always keep in mind his works, and all he fought for. Do light a candle in his name during this holy week as well.
As my thoughts move on to another important issue [at hand.]
It saddens me to say that as this holy
week closes I find the media coverage regarding justice for Trayvon
Martin suddenly stopped! It
appears the “Powers That Be” has decided to put an end to
all the talk and media coverage about the unjust killing of young
Trayvon [an unarmed youth], by the hands of a volunteer
neighborhood watchman [Zimmerman.]
Although I had high hopes for this case to result in a positive
ending, it’s questionable now IF IT WILL.
Gee, I was so sure that the
news regarding the Voice Experts finding/ruling ~~~ [that the voice
screaming … painfully ... crying out in
distress for help via the 911 Police Tapes was NOT of George Zimmerman;]
would most certainly speed up the arrest and conviction of Zimmerman
for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
However, none of this transpired; (1) Zimmerman is still free,
(2) racial injustice continues; (3) Trayvon’s parents are still
fighting for justice for their murdered son;], (4) racism in
America on a whole continues; (5) the stereotyping of black males
continues~~~not only due to the color of their skin, but by what they
wear; (6) the struggle for simply what is right, clearly seems to be
wrong; and I can go on and on. I
am so frustrated about all of this madness, and terrified that Trayvon
will never get justice. This
young boy’s life was just taken selfishly and the “powers that
be” don’t give a damn…they are allowing the killer to walk
Truly, there is something awfully…fundamentally wrong with this situation!!!
You know…oftentimes I wonder WHY; and how on earth a Chief Of Police chooses to step down from his position; clearly refusing to arrest the killer? Additionally, what’s the deal with the States Attorney of Seminole County Florida (Norman F. Wolfinger) who removed himself from investigating Trayvon’s murder; and appointed another States Attorney from another city in Florida (Jacksonville) [some time ago?] What is the cover-up? What is so big and way over our heads [deeper] about this situation that we are blind to? Moreover, who is so powerful…who can give an order to all the media outlets to stop with the coverage about this story…stop with all the talk, analyzing, etc.; and automatically it all STOPS…EVERY MEDIA OUTLET ADHERES IMMEDIATELY!! Without a doubt, there is something more taking place here, something deeper than what we can see or even imagine; and it’s all mind-boggling.
A serious word of advice...DON'T BE SURPRISED IF ON TUESDAY, APRIL 10TH THE GRAND JURY FINDS ZIMMERMAN'S MURDER/KILLING OF TRAYVON MARTIN JUSTIFIED!
Oh, I so dread the outcome being what I stated above. Although, we all know what the outcome should be; I am horrified that it will be in Zimmerman's favor (especially with how things are looking today.) I must not be surprised if Justice is not served for Trayvon. And I pray that I will be calm if otherwise, and for the strength to deal with it.
A very interesting article was forwarded to me; and it’s a good read. It is thought provoking, and some great points were discussed...TRULY WORTHY OF NOTE! In fact, so many of my thoughts and feelings were expressed in this article; which leaves me believing I am not alone with my thoughts. I have placed some of this article below, but for more CLICK HERE! [Article courtesy of The Commonwealth Times, Richmond Virginia - Shane Wade (Opinion Writer)]
"The definition of corruption is when power abuses power in order to protect power.
That’s what happened here: An unarmed youth is shot and killed by an empowered individual on little evidence and against the will of authority. But what started as a case of injustice evolved into an issue that reignited the status quo of race in America.
What the issue is being made in to, however, almost detracts from the core problem affecting America today: Laws used to protect the people are time and time again used to circumvent justice, protect those in power and their interest, and punish victims.
From celebrities that are arrested for DUIs and drug possession to the moral and financial injustices that brought about the Occupy Wall Street movement, we see our justice system being carried about like change in a purse, to be doled out at the whim of whomever carries it.
For every moment that George Zimmerman walks untried, for every moment that Trayvon Martin and his family are delayed their justice, the powers that be stand guilty. Justice delayed is justice denied. That imbalance alone should have struck a cord and rang against the scales of justice."

JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN!
Enough of my “worrying...whining...complaining”, it’s Easter Weekend and it's a time of Joy, Rebirth, Rejuvenation, Family, Love and Happiness. So, I leave you by saying once again a Very Happy Easter to you and yours.

By the way, I want to thank the many of you who responded to my last week's e-newsletter. A few were critical about who and what I choose to feature as I commemorated women during Woman History Month; but I love it! I love the input and I love the criticisms, because it helps me grow! I particularly love and welcome constructive criticism. And they certainly were constructive...WOW!!! I must say though, our business has always been entertainment (from the inception) and I found it fascinating to take one week out of the entire month to feature Caribbean women in the music business who have done a lot for Caribbean music!
issue I intent to comment on in the near future is regarding your
questions of my visit to Trinidad...particularly my findings,
feelings, observations, discussion with locals of the state of the
country after the imposed "State of Emergency." Some of my findings and
discussions were stimulating.
I want to wish my brother a very Happy Birthday.
