This Blessing is Global!

“To hate a nationality,
to hate a location because of its people,
to hate someone
is:
– self-destructive (the acid of hatred is destroying you from the inside out),
– self-cursing (the hatred you’re verbalizing, expressing, acting out, demonstrating and
writing are magnetizing the negativity of the same and worse to happen to you, immediately or later),
– a demonstration of a lack of a measure of intelligence about the Human Family,
and
– a demonstration of a lack of knowledge about The Blessing of Genesis 12:3

~ Michelle ‘Chaella’ Boddie

Independence & Permanent Peace

“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral.
I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results.
Nations have frequently won their independence in battle.
But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

The Starless Midnight of Racism & War

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war
that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

The Favor and Blessing on Your Life

“They are jealous of the favor and blessing on your life. Take it as a compliment.
They don’t talk about average people. They talk about exceptional people.
They don’t talk about people that aren’t doing anything.
They talk about people who are taking new ground;
people that are making a difference — people that stand out”
~ Joel Osteen,
Pastor of Lakewood Church, Motivational Speaker & Author

Colors of the Skin

Colors of the Skin
“You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know.
… … …
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But, if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew.”
~ Stephen Schwartz, Lyricist & Alan Menken, Composer,
Colors of the Wind song from Walt Disney Pictures’ Pocahontas (1995)

A Clear Voice

“We say to you, today, in a loud and clear voice:
Enough of blood and tears. Enough.
We have no desire for revenge. We harbor no hatred towards you.
We, like you, are people who want to build a home, to plant a tree,
to love, live side by side with you in dignity, in empathy,
as human beings, as free men.
We are, today, giving peace a chance and,
again, saying to you in a clear voice: Enough.”
~ Yitzhak Rabin,
5th & 10th Prime Minister of Israel
(1992-1995) & (1974-1977)
