Neighborhood Watch (A Thought For Prince Trayvon Martin) – My 4/20 Exhale

@ 420, I listened to Wyclef’s “Justice” video pave the road that Trayvon Martin could have taken if his journey was not cut short. He explains the possibilities of Trayvon’s future as a President, Teacher, Astronaut, etc. And I wonder about my neighborhood hoodie wearing teens and I see those positions and then some for our youth. But Kings & Queens I’ve also seen the wanna be Lil Wayne on the corner, the fugazi  Kobie at the park and the bootleg Larry Fitzgerald driving down my street and they could be these people one day or even greater, but what if they are all carrying the biggest weapon of mass destruction, ignorance.

Ignorance is what ended Trayvon’s physical journey, not just the gun. The gun in the hands of an intelligent man, with common sense, would have never come close to that child. The man with knowledge of self and his purpose would have never been lurking for a victim but trying to create a hero.

So to my neighborhood / village Royales, watch… not just for the villain but for ignorance, the disease, that crawls through the sound waves, imagery and even gets passed down from generation to generation. Yearn for knowledge so that our princesses will have more than a jester.

Be Hatched Or Go Bad

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while reamining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. – C.S. Lewis

To my prince and princess dying to take their place at the throne. Rise up and reach out for your purpose, embrace the opportunity to be born or stay alive!

 

The Human Soul – Your Voice

The most desperate need of men today is not a new vaccine for any disease, or a new religion, or a new “way of life.” Man does not need to go to the moon or other solar systems. He does not require bigger and better bombs and missiles… His real need, his most terrible need, is for someone to listen to him, not as a “patient,” but as a human soul. – Taylor Caldwel

Remember, a voice is not necessarily a sound, it is more of a stance. Your voice can be heard through a painting, through writing, through some visual element. Just make sure you have one!

Kings and Queens are everywhere in todays world. Did you know there are more than 200 million people who identify themselves as being of African descent within North & South America? Many millions more live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent. King and Queens recognizes the international community and believes in connecting the global dots. Please join in the conversation, no matter where you are from. 

 

There are 40 million people of African descent in the United States! :)

There is power in numbers and there is power in unity.”
–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
