Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Reflecting on the day I was born, gives me great joy. There was a terrible storm that day and my mother could not get to hospital. My grandmother had to step in and assist in the process. I was ready to come into this world and nothing was going to stop me. There was panic, confusion yet love. On my birth certificate there is no time or weight, so I was either born at midnight or after midnight. Even my mother is still confused to this date. When I was young, my mom celebrated my birthday first on July 16 and then on July 15. Whatever, I celebrate the gift of life and knowing that I am here for a purpose. God continues to shine his light on me, so that I can be an instrument of peace, love and joy.
When I visited East Berlin Wall , I viewed the museum by Checkpoint Charlie. I saw a whole section dedicated to the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in full profile. I thought it was weird that our plight toward justice was displayed there, and this is the reason why.
