Regrann from @havokjournal - I have seen and done things that you only experience in your nightmares. I walk amongst you now but we are not the same.
How can I explain to you what I feel? You ask me: why do you drink? Why do you fight? Why can’t you conform to the social mores we all adhere to? How can I explain to you how I felt as a young man, seeing my blood stain the sun scorched earth of Iraq, smelling gun powder and death filling my nostrils, seeing the broken bodies of my friends and foes around me. How can I explain to you that this was the last time I truly felt alive? How can I explain to you that the last time I truly felt at home was when my I felt the reassuring touch of my brothers at my side, and heard the comforting sound of a bolt being send home?
I don’t mourn my brothers. I wish they were still with me today but I know they died doing what they were meant to do. I honor their lives every day. I have tried so many times to explain to myself why they were taken instead of me and I must accept that I cannot. I can only wait. I can only clean my guns, and sharpen my knives and hope that when my time comes I too can meet death with a smile on my face and steel in my heart as they did. I long for the time when I too can rest. One day I will join them. I both rejoice and lament that you will never understand how this feels. You will never know how sweet life tastes because life is sweetest when you have almost lost it.
Brothers I salute you! I drink to you this night and yearn for the day when we will be together again. The wars we shared were terrible but I find myself lost in peace. Save me a seat in the long boat, I will see you again.

I was recently asked by @panafricanthought to take part in a short video essay exploring methods of infiltrating power constructs in society, more specifically politics, education and design.

Trailblazing entrepreneur Ms. Lauder... #Repost @womenshistory with @get_repost
Estée Lauder was a beautician, businessperson, and founder of Estée Lauder Companies. Lauder was born to Hungarian Jewish immigrants in Queens, NY, and became interested in cosmetics as a young woman. She studied under her chemist uncle, who was making cosmetics at the time—she learned how to make her own beauty products, and in 1946, she launched her own company, Estée Lauder Cosmetics Inc. After years of selling products out of her home, Lauder struck a deal with Saks Fifth Avenue, and her cosmetics sold out in two days. Her success enabled her to launch other product lines, including Aramis and Clinique. Lauder’s innovation in products and in marketing strategies, such as the “free gift with purchase,” helped her become one of the wealthiest self-made women in the world. #JAHM

I am the flag of the United States of America…
My colors symbolize the patriotic ideals and spiritual qualities of the citizens of my country…My red stripes proclaim the fearless courage and integrity of American men and boys and the self-sacrifice and devotion of American mothers and daughters…My white stripes stand for liberty and equality for all…My blue is the blue of heaven, loyalty, and faith…I represent these eternal principles: liberty, justice, and humanity…I embody American freedom: freedom of speech, religion, assembly, the press, and the sanctity of the home…I am a living symbol of my nation's law: the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights…I voice Abraham Lincoln's philosophy: "A government of the people, by the people,for the people…I stand guard over my nation's schools, the seedbed of good citizenship and true patriotism…Americans, I am the sacred emblem of your country. I symbolize your birthright, your heritage of liberty purchased with blood and sorrow…If you fail to keep this sacred trust inviolate, if I am nullified and destroyed, you and your children will become slaves to dictators and despots…Eternal vigilance is your price of freedom…As you see me silhouetted against the peaceful skies of my country, remind yourself that I am the flag of your country, that I stand for what you are - no more, no less…Guard me well, lest your freedom perish from the earth…Dedicate your lives to those principles for which I stand: "One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all…I was created in freedom. I made my first appearance in a battle for human liberty…God grant that I may spend eternity in my "land of the free and the home of the brave" and that I shall ever be known as "Old Glory," the flag of the United States of America.
Excerpt by Ruth Rous
I remember them, all of them. Every day. I don’t live for them, I could never do this justice. I cannot hold myself to any expectation worthy of their sacrifice because I could never earn what they willingly gave. Nobody can. Nobody ever could.
We cannot live for them. But we can live. “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” John 15:13 ESV. These words, spoken millennia ago by Jesus of Nazareth are often echoed when we recall the memories of our fallen. When we recount their sacrifices. A powerful statement that projects what they gave, born of love in the purest. The part we routinely forget, though, is the preceding statement delivering the most powerful, actionable and clear sentiment in the very same scripture. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” John 15:12.
I will not live for my fallen brothers, I will live with them. I will love others, as I have been loved. Give an empathetic ear to the hurting, walk with the lost, care for the needy and act for the marginalized. As best I can in my limited capacity. I will not drown myself in alcohol, isolate myself from my family and my community or punish myself for not following them into eternity too soon. How could I remember them so? That is not the love they gave for me. Nor is it the love Jesus displayed in His often-quoted sentiment.
I could never forget them, they are my friends, they are my brothers.
Love brings us back. Back to the start, back to today. The smiles we see in the dark. The little chuckles and moments we carry to the end.
Today is Memorial Day. A Day to remember and for those of us able, a day to live. Perhaps a day to hike with the family, visit with our neighbors, reconnect with old buddies and remember. Hopefully, we remember with a smile, but I respect that some may do so with the bitter sting of a loss on such a deeply personal level that Gold Star Mother, Scoti Domeij captures in “Dreading Memorial Day”. I simply cannot imagine the loss of a child or a spouse.
My heart is with you. Truly.

Meet Riti Nagi - Founder of TyPaw Cafe. This ex-corporate finance guru gave up her cushy well paid job to spread awareness of eco friendly and safe pet toys with TyPaw Cafe. .
Riti decided to work with Bangladeshi artisans to design and manufacture safe and ecofriendly pet toys because she didn’t want her beloved pet @tykethehumandog and any other pet to suffer from the effect of toxic pet toys. 😍💖
To her horror, she discovered that Consumer Product Safety Commission does NOT have any safety regulations for the pet industry. 😱 She travelled to China, India, Hong Kong before deciding to work with her Bangladeshi team. If you or your family or friends or colleagues have pets, check out @typaw_.
This amazingly resilient woman has been relentless in her endeavor and I wish her MUCH success. Be like Riti, discover your cause/passion and pursue it relentlessly! Pic from @typaw_ #ladyboss#typaw#soloentrepreneur#historymaker#giantslayer#yourjoytribe#notapaidadvertisement
