The media is worried about Lohan’s dress code rather than her struggles for survival. How much does the media need to feed off of celebrities to be satisfied. When enough is enough. USA Today thinks her dress in court is inappropriate, or something to that effect. Puhlease!
This is Valentine’s month and Black History Month – put the two together it could indicate that Blacks are loving people. For all the horrors of slavery and the legacy of racism and discrimination blacks endure, they still have an open heart to the heirs of those who profitted from their exploitation. The hope is that we learn from the past and move ahead in a positive way.
Valentine’s legacy is the pursuit of love in the face of all obstacles. The light of love is so strong it will not let you do anything else. It was the love of freedom, man’s natural birthright that propels people onward towards that light. It is the light of freedom that’s sweeping over the Middle East.
Congratulations to the people of the Middle East – more power to the people. It is like witnessing a dream, something you will wake up from and find it is nothing more than a fancy dream. Who would have thought that these people would have stood up to the powers that me. Miracle never cease but daily increase! Despots, autocrats, dictators – take note – people will take only so much before they break into collective madness. Those people generally are the youths. According to reports, most of these countries are ripe with youths coming into their own, restless and ambitious and want the good life now, not tomorrow. They want more than their parents and they are not afraid. They have youth on their side and they have the internet.

“This was a very important speech,” Lee says. He views the movie as a love story, as well as a historical piece.
“The movie was very well done. The King and the Queen were both determined to overcome the circumstances.”
The King closed his Winnipeg address with words for the youth of the Commonwealth:
“I would end with a special word of greeting to those of my listeners who are young. It is true — and I deplore it deeply — that the skies are overcast in more than one quarter at the present time. Do not on that account lose heart. (CBC Winnipeg)
