Hi there once again my friends,
Its me Eric again with another Journal/poem for you to enjoy! well its May now and the countdown to summer has already begun and of course the two holidays that we remember on this month that coming up first Mother's day on next sunday so spend some time with your very special lady in your life whenever its your mother, wife, sister, aunt, daughter, etc its a very special day for all the mothers in the world who raised us right and enjoy the sweet memories that we had growing up. The second one is Memorial Day later this month so let's celebrate our proud Troops who put their lives on the line for this proud and beautiful country as well. Now for the things that is on my mind lately first Well as you know this week the Riots that are happening in Baltimore, Maryland that is 35-40 miles away from my hometown of Washington D.C. and like the happinings that started in Ferguson, Missouri late last year it all started with another slaying of a promising young black man by unnecessary police brutally and the innocent bystander name was Freddie Gray now their were peaceful protests that happended before and after Freddy's funeral the other days but when nightfall came and I watched the TV in horror to see People rioting and looting as well as burning stuff in their own neighborhoods and even going at it with the cops as well.its like something out of the old HBO TV series The Wire( love that show!) set in Baltimore but only this is real life! Things were so bad that The Baltimore Orioles had to cancelled their baseball games at home this week and even the Governor of Maryland had called on the National Guard in calming the city down and restoring order as well. Look like I said in my journals late last year that Violence NEVER EVER solves anything it only leads into even worse things and while Law enforcement may have gone a little way too far handing people with brute force we should still respect authority and the rules of the law that are still some good cops in the world not all policemen and women are bad. We must not destory things that we worked and saved hard for just because another life was taken unnessary. We may have lost Trayon Martin, Eric Gardner, Micheal Brown, Freddy Gray and countless others along the way even going back to Emettt Till back in the day but let's still try to increase the peace and God will take care of it. #Blacklivesmatter
Second I saw the Bruce Jenner interview and I must say that was a very stunning interview by him in telling the world that i has accepted himself or herself as an Transgender woman now and if he's happy with his decision so be it.
its his life and we should leave him alone. I still remember Being only four years old at the time of the 1976 olympics in Montreal, Quebec Canada where back then He was the greatest athlete in the world and was the eptimity of Greatness on the track and i still remember Him being on the front cover on Wheaties Cereal. I know that he had been a total punchline of jokes the past few years with all the rest of the Kardishian Family but like I said in my poem about the Gay and Lesbian Community last year we should accept people for who they really are and not look down on them because they live in a very different lifestyle nor questioned their sexuality! Mr. Jenner was quite charming and human all the way and I think in the way that he may have opened the door for others who want to follow in his footsteps.
Good for you Bruce and God still loves you whatever you are now.
Now finally to the fun stuff, Well its going to be a big weekend now only with the arrival of the first wave of the Summer movie season starting with Avengers 2: Age of Ultron coming this weekend by which of course i will go see it with my family and give my review of it next journal and also all the big sports events happining including the Kentucky Derby Horse Race, The Fight that we have been waiting for many years that will finally happen in Las Vegas that Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao and of course the NBA Basketball and NHL Hockey Playoffs Continue and I proud to say that Both my hometown Basketball team the Wizards and the Hockey Team the Capitals have already made it to the Second round and for the first time ever both of them made it in the same year. The Wiz completed a Four game sweep of Toronto( sorry my friends in Canada, ha-ha) I was at game 3 last friday night and the building was truly eletric it was a good game all thru with Wizards and the Raptors had their runs before late in the 4th quarter when my man the Truth Paul Pierce and my homie from Georgetown Otto Potter hit dagger three pointers to help DC Win the game and I enjoy it live in person at the Verizon Center in Downtown Washington. Then the night after the Wizards ended their series the Captials Won a rare Game seven game at home against The New York Islanders with the final score of 2-1. even some of the Wiz was out in support for their Hockey comrades dressed in caps gear. Now my Caps will face the other team from New York the Rangers AKA The BlueShirts(arwyncole, we are ready!) no matter what they both do from here on out the rest of this memorable playoff run I still will be so proud of them and i know that my baseball team the Nationals will break out of their early season funk that they are no they are simply too good and talented to be playing this bad right now. if we only now can fix our beloved Football team the Redskins who were once a great 3x super bowl champion but since been a joke for the last 15-20 years but I still love them and yes indeed we are #DC
thanks for all the support once again that you been giving to me and I continue to give you my great insight of the world. Here's another Poem for you to enjoy and its speaks about the goings on not only in Baltimore but the world itself lately. its time for peace and love and be united!
People all the over the world wake up and be united
Joining hands together again never to be divided
it's time to stop fighting, living together as one again
There's no time like the present to begin
It's time that we erase all the violence and hate
Starting healing while loving each other again to celebrate
No matter what we are black, white, latino, jew or Asian
We are in the great melting pot to form one strong nation
The lord's love is in every loving smiling face
He love us all because we are all a part of the human race
In my world there are no such thing as racism and a minority
Because everybody of all races living all the together as one big happy family
We are all God's children being brought into this world called Mother Earth
So that we can cherish and nourish like continuing the human race by rebirth
So wake up world it's time for us to stop being so scared and divided
We must start sharing own proud histories and cultures being united
United we stand, divided we fall
There's room in this world for us all
With all of us being together as one the world are our home
As long as we keep loving and living with each other no one will ever be alone
Happy Mother's day to all the moms in the world and Stay strong B-MORE you will rise again!
see ya on Tha next episode!
