I do know how long you have been travelling in this movement, but there are things which took place in the movement in the past, that maybe you are not aware of. There are no undertakers in the Rastafari movement, and I do not think that there will ever be any, becausec Rastafari people are so afraid of the very word death, except in the instance, of saying death and Judgement to some one. So, if a Rastafari Person should fall to the ground in the midst of an assemble, and is not breathing any more, then the thing to do, is to call an undertaker, and let him preprare the remains, for burial or Cremation, and then plan a day for a memorial ceremony forthe patriot, where you can read poems, and give speaches concerning the good things, which the brother or sister did, while he or she was here walking and talking among us. These are the simple realities which we must face, when ever these situations accur. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
