World in major crisis! What has gone wrong? A lack of peace, with an intense increase in the presence of war is plaguing various corners of this space we call the human home. Mother earth is bawling from the deepest recesses of her belly complements the wickedness of humanity itself. Interestingly, everyone who perpetuates, and or promotes the violence believes he or she is acting justly, rightly and is pleasing the self and his or her god.
The confusion is inexplicable to the average easy-liver. The Easy-liver is someone who just wants to be allowed to live his or her life without fear and threat of being cut down innocently by some extremist. This type of individual pursues tranquility in the simple things of life, consciously avoids complications, and would like to travel the world, simply to behold the splendor of its creator.

In an instant – change! Lessons in Life
Tropical Storm Erika has certainly struck our nation beyond anything one would have fathomed prior to its arrival over Dominica. The shocking evidence of its mischief is vivid. Things will be so for a long time via the various memorabilia which will emerge, and those which have already emerged. Without decreasing the impact of the monstrosity of this weather system which has battered my homeland, I feel obligated to highlight some lessons that I am learning since Thursday 27th August, 2015.

“Fear not, for God is with you, Fear Not!” — Isaiah 41:10
The fear of pressing on amidst life’s many questionable challenges always tends to show its ugly face, when we would prefer otherwise. For some people, God is an abstract being, so a statement like the above may not stand nor hold any substance to them. For those of us who believe in a higher power, whom we call God, we hold on to this reality, that fear is never bigger than HIM.
Whatever you call HIM, if you believe in a higher, and supreme being, when fear knocks at your door like a thief, remember you are not alone. It is easy however, to feel like you are alone, like all is lost, like nothing works, or that all is falling apart. Let me remind you to steer the course because it is worth pressing on against fear and its relations. Continue reading
Have you ever felt the need to challenge yourself? Of course you have felt that way before. Well, for me, I more than feel to do so, I intend to give a challenge a shot. Today, I prepare to embark on a new journey, one that will allow me to explore new life’s possibilities. A great level of curiosity is what I intend to take with me to that new “classroom” of life.
To attempt anything new requires that we utilize a level of curiosity. As if contradictory to this, the famous adage that “curiosity killed the cat” comes rushing through my mind with a plan to sabotage my new enthusiasm. Thinking aloud I shout to the top of my voice, – “Oh thief of fear and doubt, get the heck out of here.” This thief forgets that I am aware of the other adage that “Cats have nine lives”? It is with this knowledge of “nine-lives” that I am going to press on toward my new challenge. Continue reading
Faith and hope!
The old 2014 is closing, giving us two more days to consider what we will plan for 2015. The reality is that the world continues business as usual. Certainly, once 12:00am occurs on Thursday, the wicked regimes of the world will still be planning mayhem, conspiring their next torturous acts, the Western world will continue its celebrations, Christians in some parts of the world will still be suffering great persecutions, the girls of Nigeria will still be hurting from the loss of their education, innocence, pride, and familial safety, and world leaders will probably all be seeking new ideas for their nation states. Man this world is so chaotic, it is with great apprehension many humans are looking toward 2015. Continue reading
Heaven give us hope in a world full of conflict. We ask for the hurting souls, some relief oh God!
People will write you off in life. That is just how it is. You cannot do much to change their choice if and when that happens. Notwithstanding that fact, one must do everything within his or her power to continue living a life fulfilled. Besides, to do otherwise is to hand-deliver ones life’s power to someone else who does not care a single thing about him/her.
When I think about the crisis that occurs all around us, the mere hurts dished out to us, are really peanuts. Heck, so many real souls are being lost daily, so many hearts are being literally shattered, so many limbs are being broken by wicked acts of other real people. The small rejections, write-offs, and their cousins are definitely unimportant. Continue reading
Yes, I am 18 today. In 1996, on February 13th, I walked through the doors of the Youth Development Division as a novice. The excitement of having been given the opportunity to work with young people like myself was thrilling. Who would have thought, this young lady would turn into a strong woman within the same Department for that many years, contributing to the lives of hundreds maybe even thousands of young men and women on a regular basis, through various programs and activities?
