A few things I learned from the 2012 election.....

The 2012 election was a big eye opener for me ......Possibly more than the 2008 one... Maybe not so much that a man of color is now residing in the White House,but more so that so many people of different walks of life could believe in someone (in a non-religious way),and come together for change and hope......Young people are becoming more socially aware and interested in our futures.... Its amazing.......But on the flip side of that I have learned alot about my peers,and just people in general. I have had a pretty amazing upbringing, I come from two pretty liberal parents(considering their ages and backgrounds),middle class mixed community in Cleveland,Ohio....I have had friends from all over the world, as a kid my father would joke and say when my brothers and I would gather with our friends it looked like the Untied Nations. I've been friends with the Jewish, Gay,Lesbian,Trans,Muslims, Bi-racial,etc.....I have respected them all the same. Took me to my mid twenties to re
Do I need to say anything else?

Hurricane Sandy....

Last week Hurricane Sandy devastated so many homes and lives on the east coast, I recently found out that  a dear friend of mine and her two children were effected as well. Female Emcee, Persia (you may know her from 'VH1's The White Rapper show' ) lost her home and everything she owned. While Persia and her children are just fine, the damage done to their lives so close to holidays is horrible.... Donations can be paypaled to her ; Thank you in advance!
