the first picture on the right have 4 people, the first from left is Bongo Bigger who has past, next is Mama Ina who has also past, sitting next is Bongo Tawney who has passed and standing at the mike chanting is Mama Bubbles who is still with us even as we speak.
Picture numbers 2 in the middle, from right is Mama Bubbles who is still here with us, then Bongo Tawney and then Bongo Bigger both of them have passed.
The next frames of pictures consist of Bongo Tawney only and he has just passed recently.
There is indeed a great lesson to be learned from the passing of Bongo Tawney and all those great elders who have passed over the past thirty to forty years. There are so many of them who I have known and worked with in the early days who have passed away and return to the earth from whence they came. The lesson which we all should learn is that life is just a journey which we travel until our work is done, each of us is transfered to another atmosphere to do whatever this great universe appoints us to do. So, we enter into this world through our mother's womb, and when our work is finished we make our exit and that is all there is to it naturally speaking, since this has been taking place from time emmemorial.The best thing to do, is to learn from the process, and to teach what we learn to the following generation, so that they can be alert as to what takes place in life, and what to expect as they live from day to day. People can believe whatever they want to believe but belief is not really knowledge, it is really uncertianty. but reality is real real real. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of your selves and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
