People are often quick to criticize others. Some seem to get a thrill out of it and at times can be quite cruel. Don’t allow CRITICISM from others tear you down or make you feel less than. Not all criticisms are bad so learn to tell the difference. Use the constructive ones to uplift you. Ignore the negative ones because they are not worth your time.

February 5 1995 – February 26, 2012
On February 26, 2012 Trayvon Martin an unarmed black teenager was shot dead in cold blood. He did nothing wrong and was unnecessarily targeted and killed. Trayvon Martin got no justice as his killer George Zimmerman walked free.
Trayvon it wasn’t fair that you died so young
Your story had only just begun.
You will never get the chance to fill the pages in your book of life
There were so many things that you never got to do.
Though you are gone your memory lives on
And we will always remember you.
We need to fix a justice system which allows a man who targets and kills an unarmed black boy to walk free but convicts a rookie cop who accidentally shoots a man on a dark staircase. Rest In Peace Trayvon.
A Pound of Butter
There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, amour Honor, I am primitive. I don’t have a proper measure, but I do have a scale.” The judge asked, “Then how do you weigh the butter?” The farmer replied “Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker.”
Moral of the story is that what you give that you shall also receive so be honest when dealing with others.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
