If you're going to make "forever" stamps, it's hard to go wro"I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don't think there is anything such as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you're happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven't reached that stage yet." Rosa Parks Mother of the Civil Rights Movement
in Self Help
After yesterday's intense scrutiny of Mental Health Violence and Quality Control, we go to the flip side of the issue, with a civil rights poem and a creative description of the void too deep for psychology. I wish to emphasize however, we are looking at the exact same problem (Quality Control), just through a different filter.
A Fuss on a Bus "A Fuss on a Bus" is (currently) Chapter 23 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It starts out like this:
Hey Rosa . . . The eyes of the world were upon you Way way back . . . back in nineteen and sixty two All the world wondered A nation had blundered . . . Summer stopped to stand stark still in sweltering stasis . . . Men, and even senators stood supine The foolish beguiled the wise . . . A woman took a mighty nation to its moral knees . . .
I think everyone will enjoy this poem about Rosa Parks.
4 A.M. Someplace "4 A.M. Someplace" is (currently) Chapter 8 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It's the artsy touchie feelie side of the same quality control argument i tried to make yesterday in much more logical terms. It starts out like this:
The Wal-Mart fan rattles on the scratched gritty wooden floor and blows the smells of new and ancient sweat off thin unwashed sheets affixed to the rough fibered blue surface of the sleeper couch below; and troubled minds are spinning in circles balancing shaky human alliances and application of scarce resources to problems, like an overmatched general pitting starving troops on a wet frozen battlefield against a superior well fed mechanized opponent.

Host Shango Blake celebrates the life of Rosa Parks in a reflective discussion about the significance of the 100th anniversary with Dr. Bessie W. Blake educator, author and lecturer. Dr. Blake is the former Dean of the College of New Rochelle, School of New Resources was a personal aide to Rosa L. Parks. Dubbed “The Hip Hop Principal” by parents and students, he has taken the powerful and magnetic force known as Hip Hop and channeled it into a tool that gets young urban students excited about education while at the same time building their self-esteem and confidence. This Project also benefitted the students by creating a project-based model for teaching valuable skills and lessons that extended from the classroom into practical application. The result of this was not only a student-created music video that screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, also students learned to use their passion to focus on education, self-respect, and self-determination, They were honored by Southeast Queens, New York City, and nationally for their hard work and accomplishment.
