Welcome to my new blog! I've decided to take a more personal approach to my new blogs and talk to you all as if you were my family... so what up fam? Of course, all biological family are not "family" so to speak but everyone has their portion and I encourage everyone to count their blessings. We should Love one another as the family of man-kind as much as possible. Many choose to War with everyone, carrying a "me-against-the-world" type of mentality. Look around though, whether we are comfortable with it or not, someone of different cultures, views, backgrounds, and religions live their lives in close proximity to our own. Instead of becoming the United States of mind, we have to understand each other better and show more compassion toward those who "cross the line."
I personally think that we as a nation have made great strides in dealing with issues of segregation and division. However, the other extreme has to be looked into which is a crippling mass conformation. If we don't celebrate our differences then we could end up a society with depletions in creativity do to elitest propaganda, mass misunderstanding of gifted innovators, devaluing of sacred beliefs, and the misinterpretation of what true success really is.
Why do I mention success? Simply because we all don't share the same intimacy with what success is. It's more of a personal assessment based on giftings, personal goals and achievement. This is very important because friends can have an idea of what your success may be, your parents a different idea and then most important you! These ideas can either add to your achievement potential or erode them based on how strong an influence the third party may have.
I'm going to be doing extensive research on the potential of exploitation in the United States of America and it's global expansion from inner-city culture. I will be putting together a collection of blogs for one full year documenting my research every Sunday on a weekly basis. I will break down the leading cultural influences in today society, the elite religions, the ever shifting market place, and the discipline of holding sacred the things money shouldn't buy. God willing, we will be able to put things in an excellent perspective and give life's gifts it's proper value through 2009 and concluding in August 2010.
