A Quest To Teach With Integrity: (1)

A few months ago, I had a conversation with a friend in which she told me how a teacher was dismissed for inappropriately touching a female student. I was taken aback by the fact that an ordinary touch could cost a teacher their job. This brought me back to where I come from, Liberia, and…

Mind Versus Me

HerI have been here before; on different days, but definitely at this same spot. Everything is familiar; the whispers are so loud in my head that I want to jump out of my skin. My mind is at war with me. I wish my mind and I could make amends and become friends but my…

Revolution & Peacevolution (Let’s Give Peace A Chance)

Several years ago, an idea of total instant change arose in the West, and Revolutions started in many areas. Every state or region had different means and approaches toward revolutionizing itself which were exemplified by the British Revolution, the French Revolution, American Revolution, etcetera.  The most lives lost have been through revolutions. The World Wars,…

Mama Liberia

Why do you weep mama Liberia?  Is it because your dream of having a bright future is thrown in the sea?  Is it because you are not well taken care of?  You lack good leaders, good roads, economic and educational system and power supplies. Are these the reasons?  Or is it because all of your…

Her Story

Curves of perfection, with room kind enough to birth nations.
Words of compassion, speaking light into darkness.
When God said let there be light, She was the light He spoke of; the great He thought of;
A secret for the world to ponder on…

I Cheat, In the Shower

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Arelius  San Francisco – It was a long train ride to work, a wave of people aboard, and a very scenic route. I was exhausted, having already walked 20 minutes from home to the…

I am a Failure

I accept that I don’t have to be perfect to be the best.
I know being my best is always better than being the best,
Because there are about 8 billion kinds of “normal”.
The only thing I can ever do 100% every time I try,
