Beyoncé at Made In America Festival
Look at this beauty.
So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!”
"OH MY GOD! THE CAR IS DAMAGED! YOU POOR CAR!"
— some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via traffic-jam-session)
My aunt got married on Sunday. She’s 13 years my senior. This is her first marriage.
In June, she told me to go and talk to my gynecologist about freezing my eggs, you know, just in case I find myself single at 39 and wanna birth some chirrens.
I take her advice to heart.
She called me today to thank me for holding her down on her wedding day.
"No doubt," was the sentiment of my response.
She then asked me how my relationship was going.
"Eh," was the sentiment of my response.
She told me that I need to pray about it. Fasting and prayer is what helped her gain clarity on her life, relationship, and now marriage.
I immediately decide to meditate more often and pray even more.
She said that I need to pray with my man. If we can’t pray together, it will never work.
My boyfriend is Hindu/Buddhist.
We have been together for over a year. Never have we prayed. Never have we meditated together, though I always bring it up. Whenever I say “God” or “Jesus” or anything not Vishnu, Ganesh, Lakshmi, or Siddartha, he reminds me that his gods are older. He’s joking, but still…
I take my aunt’s advice to heart.
