Here’s to the security guards who maybe had a degree in another land. Here’s to the manicurist who had to leave her family to come here, painting the nails, scrubbing the feet of strangers. Here’s to the janitors who don’t even fucking understand English yet work hard despite it all. Here’s to the fast food workers who work hard to see their family smile. Here’s to the laundry man at the Marriott who told me with the sparkle in his eyes how he was an engineer in Peru. Here’s to the bus driver, the Turkish Sufi who almost danced when I quoted Rumi. Here’s to the harvesters who live in fear of being deported for coming here to open the road for their future generation. Here’s to the taxi drivers from Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt and India who gossip amongst themselves. Here is to them waking up at 4am, calling home to hear the voices of their loved ones. Here is to their children, to the children who despite it all become artists, writers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, activists and rebels. Here’s to Western Union and Money Gram. For never forgetting home. Here’s to their children who carry the heartbeats of their motherland and even in sleep, speak with pride about their fathers. Keep on.

Immigrants. First generation.

I AM GEEKING BECAUSE I AM SHARING A STAGE WITH THE BLK JKS AND LEBO MASHILE THIS FRIDAY!!!! #WeLeadYou
Seriously, we’re standing up for climate justice with 350Africa. Follow them on Twitter and ‘Like’ them on Facebook so that you can get the info for the free tickets you need to attend this event. It really is going to be amazing.
From the website:
“The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million and rising, to below 350 ppm.
Climate change will hit Africa hardest so this fight is about climate justice. Many of the poorest Africans, women and children are already facing more drought, floods and extreme weather that threaten their livelihoods and push food prices up. The fact is climate change is going to affect all of us.
We believe that an African grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of climate justice. That movement is rising from the bottom up all over the continent and is coming together to champion solutions that will ensure a better future for all.”
I hope to see you there! :)

Let’s talk about… Hmmmmmm.
Let’s talk about the ones that you’d take a bullet for? The same one’s who’ll leave you on the floor even after that wonderful gesture.
Let’s talk about those who you’d give your last rand for, the same one’s who’ll leave you hungry if they had their last MILLION rand, if tables were turned.
Let’s talk about why we are so attached to the selfish. Why they always win?
Let’s talk about the one’s you’d put your dreams on hold for, to help them build theirs. Only for their dream to come true and well… you become a instant distant memory.
Let’s talk about the takers. The leeches. The cold hearted souls who win by sucking the life out of those who are good & selfless, around them. 
Let’s talk about those who’d gladly put you in the line of fire. Keep you there to burn for them while they run… not to get help… run free and never look back.
Nothing is more painfull than being selfless in todays world. Nothing is more painfull than being a friend in todays world.
Nothing is more painfull than having morals in this world.
Now.. let’s talk about how when you shut down and become like them, you lose.
Lol. Madness isn’t it?
Truth is, you can only learn through experience. 
Let’s talk about stopping for 2secs… to heal your broken, misused heart. 
After we done? Let’s talk about letting go and forgiving those who do not know what they are doing, or do,either way it is no longer your burden to carry.
So, dear beautiful friend who’d take a bullet,sacrifice your last rand, walk through fire or put your dreams on hold. You are beautiful. You are greater than you’ll ever know.
Hold on to that heart of Gold and let the rest live with their dark. One day, the universe will reward you. Keep going. Be cautious. Let go! ;)
