In Grateful Remembrance


"When you were born,
you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice."

- Cherokee Expression

"Memories of yesterday
and dreams of tomorrow
make us who we are today.
Grief is the price we pay for love."

- Queen Elizabeth II

Sometimes when we wonder:

The answer is:
(Isaiah 57:1 - 2)

(1933 - 2006)





James Brown Speaks
About Today's Songs

"I firmly believe that Black music should never be 'dirty.'
And if you think about it, how could it be, unless someone . . . was allowing it?"


"The FCC controls the licensing of everything
connected to broadcasting.
If they don't want something on the air,
it doesn't get on.
Conversely, whatever material does make it on the airwaves
is the material that they have deemed 'appropriate.' "

"Lady Bird" Johnson
(1912 - 2007)

We gratefully remember and honor the life and work of Claudia Alta Taylor "Lady Bird" Johnson.

As we do, it would do us all well to ask:

How do the elements of today's society (religious, government, education, corporate, entertainment, news media, sports and personal) measure up under the scrutiny and spotlight of the ideals of America -- "We the People" who claim to "hold these truths to be self-evident . . . . " ?

It is a sobering challenge to live up to.

Momma taught me. Momma brought me.
Momma kept me from becoming too haughty.
Momma sought me. Momma fought me.
And showed me with what a true Christian ought to be.

Momma taught me how to love.
Momma taught me how to pray.
Momma taught me how to sing.
Praises to my God every day.

Momma taught me how to smile,
Even when my heart was breaking.
Momma taught poise and style,
In the midst of my undertaking.

Momma taught me to respect.
Momma taught me not to neglect,
Momma taught me to preserve and protect
Those not blessed with my intellect.

Yes, momma taught us, and taught us well.
That is why we would like to tell
All you good people, that our mom is swell:
She just may have saved our souls from hell.

Many saints and scoundrels have left the land of the living since 2006.

Knowing this, we all ought to consider our own mortality and resolve to creatively solve in a positive manner the many problems and issues confronting us without the mean spiritedness that has been a hallmark of the past.

"Polar bears are drowning while nitwits, nincompoops and nutty numbskulls are clowning."

Yes there are other "N - words" if you choose to use them.

It's way past time to wake up!

Truth, peace and reconciliation are long overdue.

"God bless America, my home sweet home.

God spare America the fate of Rome!"

Please read Proverbs 3:5-6, (1-35)

As many people remember the life and work of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr on the anniversary of his untimely death, prayers are extended that all of the families of humanity and their leaders will soon understand and act constructively on his message.

Yes, Jesus loves YOU!

The Bible tells me so.
