I think that there was always a situation where harmony and disharmony kind of grow up together among all of us as a people. There is no one person that live a life of perfect goodness, that is to say, live a life where he or she never make a mistake. Even in the days when we were living among our parents as children, before we become teenagers,or adults, and were exposed to the world, we were always making mistakes, based on the things which we were taught to be wrong or right. Our parents would flog us many times for disobeying their orders, based on what they learned to be good and bad order as children, so, that teaching would carry on, to our children, whether it was right or wrong. I think it is written in the bible, that one should not spare the rod and spoil the child, but at the same time, one can use the rod and spoil the child, in the midst of a boiling temper, by losing control and murder that child. Even in your community where you are living today, you may have noticed people who are living there, who you would consider to be good people based on their attitudes, and at the sametime you may also notice people who you may consider to be out of order people, also based on their attitudes. So, they all have to live together until the day of harvest. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I se nd many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
Baba Ras Marcus.
