Reflection: Open-mind

Have you guys ever listen to Marvin Gaye songs? Well this song I used to listen to it a lot as a kid and had weird gut feeling, Irry(especially the ending of the song). But now listening to it I felt like sharing it and how prevalent it is today and was written and composed about 40yrs ago.It tells a lot about how run are world and how sad that we haven't woken up to the truth: ignorant to it. I feel that there are two side of story one truth and one is straight up lies. So, lies are like a slow painful disease, no cure can save you and truth well it truth it can't hurt you unless you did wrong and didn't accept that you did wrong and you took upon yourself to undo your wrongs(learn from your mistakes), but don't wait till to it's late.

Take a moment b4 and think and really processes what's going on in today's society.

Here are the Lyrics:
Woo ah mercy, mercy me
Ah, things ain't what they used to be.
No, no, where did all the blue skies go,
Poison is the wind that blows
From the north and south and east
Woo mercy, mercy me

Ah things ain't what they used to be, no, no
Oil wasted on the ocean and upon
Our seas fish full of mercury, ah. oh

Ah things ain't what they used to be
What about this over crowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?

Oh mercy, mercy me.
Ah things ain't what they used to be.
No, no, no, radiation underground and in the sky;
Animals and birds who live near by are dying oh,

Oh mercy, mercy me.
Ah things ain't what they used to be.
No, no, no, radiation underground and in the sky;
Animals and land how much more abuse from man can she stand?

More vivid look(sorry for the quality):

...has it really changed(for the better?)

Seek the truth, if your strong enough to handle it.

Anyways I bought tickets to see cirque du soliel but freaking expensive tickets and stupid convenience fee($20 for what you don't have middle man anymore so WTF;Usually companies use to use middleman to get tickets so there was never CF just probably a sales tax). I want to see IRIS for me and mom's birthdays but then I forgot about buying the tickets >W<. <&nbsp/>

Jamaicans Unite [50th Anniversary]

Wow can't believe it been 50 yrs. When I was little my mom had me listen to Reggae, Dance hall and Soca. My Dad died when I was 3 years old so never really fully develop my Dad's native tongue patwa but I always appreciate and love his and my land, Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water" or the "Land of Springs." Jamaican just like US is melting pot of people from around world.

A Little back story; Jamaica slowly gained increasing independence from the United Kingdom and in 1958, it became a province in the Federation of the West Indies, a federation among the British West Indies. Jamaica attained full independence by leaving the federation in 1962. One day I hope to visit but until that day I'm 100% Jamaican.

"Out of Many, One People"

National symbols
National Bird — Red-billed Streamertail (aka Doctor Bird) (a Hummingbird, Trochilus polytmus)
National Flower – Lignum vitae (Guiacum officinale)
National Tree — Blue Mahoe (Hibiscus talipariti elatum)
National Fruit — Ackee (Blighia sapida)

International Influential Jamaicans

Some rappers, such as The Notorious B.I.G. and Heavy D, are of Jamaican descent. Internationally known reggae musician Bob Marley was also Jamaican.

Many other known artists were born in Jamaica including Millie Small, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Big Youth, Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown, Desmond Dekker, Beres Hammond, Beenie Man, Shaggy, Grace Jones, Shabba Ranks, Super Cat, Buju Banton, Sean Paul, I Wayne, Bounty Killer and many others. Band artist groups that came from Jamaica include Black Uhuru, Third World Band, Inner Circle, Chalice Reggae Band, Culture, Fab Five and Morgan Heritage. The genre jungle emerged from London's Jamaican diaspora. The birth of hip-hop in New York City, New York also owed much to the city's Jamaican community.Journalist and author H. G. de Lisser (1878–1944) used his native country as the setting for his many novels. Born at Falmouth, de Lisser worked as a reporter for the Jamaica Times at a young age and in 1920 began publishing the magazine Planters' Punch.

Fun Fact:
Ian Fleming, who lived in Jamaica, repeatedly used the island as a setting in the James Bond novels,only James Bond film adaptation to have been set in Jamaica is Doctor No.
