 When I see pictures of African women such as these, I think of how strong we black, African American women are, no matter the complexion or skin tone. I think of what we've come from and how and why we are still able to continue forward. I get strength. I often google images of African Women Warriors...and just look, and I remember who I am, as I remember from whence and where I come.

When I see Luke Cage, I wonder where the manly strength (mentally and physically) of the Black, African American man has gone. I wonder where he self preservation, survival of the fittest has gone, that's missing in the will of  our  young black men. I'm afraid, I'm worried. So many now have more in common with Zoo animals than they do the male species of mankind. When is this hero coming to save young black males; and, where is this super hero going to come from? You? He? Him?

African American Super Hero Needed
Responsibility: Save young black males from themselves and others who want to do away with them.
Benefits: A healtheir, productive society that cares about it's youth.
Requirements: Blessed, Skilled, Educated, Concerned or striving to be; Humane; Ready to make a difference.

"So, I was feeling a li'l funky today, so I decided to take a walk through the garden. It's a beautiful garden that I've made up in my mind ages ago. But, i finally bought it into fruition. In my garden, nothing that's mean or evil in the world matters. The only thing that matters is serenity and the beautiful world of God. You sit, stand, kneel, touch and take in the beauty he graced this land with. This is the only way I can maintain life, otherwise, I would fall off the nearest cliff. But, I do have this, I have this serenity and plethora of foral genius. Mounds and mounds of flowers await me behind my path, just around the corner of the archway. You too should have a garden, make one of your own. Life without one is sad and gloomy. They don't realize this, but they will soon, unbeknownst to them."
