I Wish Kids Didn't Have To Resort To Such Desperate Measures....

I wish, one person could've heard Abraham Biggs' cry for help, and dried his tears.
I wish suicide would not be viewed as the final answer for our youth...

I wish and hope the day would come sooner rather than later, when Abraham's family will know-it's not ok, but it is alright.
We can't save all of our youth, but we can PAY ATTENTION to the warning signs:
  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Irritability, anger, or hostility
  • Tearfulness or frequent crying
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits
  • Restlessness and agitation
  • Feelings of worthlessness and guilt
  • Lack of enthusiasm and motivation
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

I wish...through Abraham's death, another life is saved.
I wish...Abraham Biggs, was alive.

RIP Abraham Biggs

Scratch One Wish Off the List...

There will be black man inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. I am still coming to terms with this piece of history that has now been added to our lives. Like many African Americans while this wasn't often said out loud, I must admit Barack Obama's cool, suave swagger, his nonplussed attitude in the midst of accusations, his blatant love for his wife-has indeed moved me. I can scratch a wish off of my list. I have lived to see a black man become president for all of the people.

It's good to know that wishes are still coming true.

Congratulations, President-Elect Barack Obama

I Wish I Could Ask God, Why????

By now, you have heard of the tragedy that has befallen entertainer, Jennifer Hudson.
In case you were living underground for the past week or so, Jennifer Hudson of "Dreamgirls" and "American Idol" fame had to identify the bodies of her mother, brother, and most recently her 7yr old nephew as they were gunned down in cold blood.
Jennifer's brother-in-law William Balfour, her older sister Julia's husband, is suspected of the killings.

I wish I could ask God, why?
Why would you allow this man to kill this family, incl a 7yr old boy?
Why is it (to me) Lord, that it seems the good people die and the bad people thrive?
What lesson are u trying to teach Jennifer, and u cudn't teach it to her another way?
How can she go on, Lord, when 3/4 of her family were killed in less than a week??
I don't know if I could ( or would) want to recover from a tragedy like that. And I don't think i could ever forgive you, Lord...because YOU HADN'T STOPPED IT. I hope u understand where I'm coming from God.

What do you wish YOU could ask God??

I Wish I Could Go Back In Time...

I wish I could go back in time.
If I could go back in time, I'd:
  • Choke the hell out of Eve (as in Adam and Eve) for setting precedence for all of womankind. What part of 'DON'T EAT FROM THAT TREE' DID U NOT U UNDERSTAND??? Then I'd drop kick Adam...what in the hell were YOU thinking??
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • I'd go to Egypt, and see what King Tut really looked like, see if Cleopatra was black/white/other, and I'd sit my butt on that hot sand and finally see how the Pyramid/Sphinx were actually built!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • Of course, I'd chill with Jesus Christ-and I'd also find out how Apostle Paul/Peter passed away.
  • How did 'Superman' really die?
  • Find out if we (U.S.A) really put a man on the moon
  • I'd thump my mom in the head (in her 20's) until she made decisions that were best down the road, and not for immediate gratification.
  • MLK Jr., would've changed his lodging plans around at the last minute-so he'd be alive today to put his feet in his kids' asses!!
  • Teach my younger self, holding onto anger only stops my life, no one else's.
  • Choose a diff father for my daughter.
  • Insist my aunt treat her body better so that she may live
  • Be in Greece for the 1st Olympics!!

  • Meet my forefathers who were slaves. (I'd probably last just long enuf to get their names..then I'm gone, I wouldn't make it back to 2008-i'd be killed!!)
  • Hang out more on prom night -Who didn't like or wanna be like Molly Ringwald (below) in the '80's??
  • I'd ______________________ Adolf Hitler, Mussolini etc

I Wish I Could Quit My Job...

I wish I could be like Johnny Paycheck and tell my manager, "Take this job and SHOVVVVVE it, I ain't workin' here no mo."
I wish she'd call my name, ride me about some 'mistake' I made and while she's sounding like Charlie Brown's teacher...unintelligible. I'd tell her to 'shut up.'
I'd tell her to shut up and now she and everyone in my office to 'listen up.'
I'd then say I'M DONE.
No more bureaucratic crap.
No more petty, ghetto, office backstabbing.
No more being unhappy that I have to come here
No more looking at you all (most of the employees, anyway)pitiful stupid faces.
I'm out.
And as far as I'm concerned YOU CAN TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT SOOOOO DEEP UP UR AZZ, You'd have to be split open just to retract the job.
I work for a Fortune 500 corporation that could give a rip about its employees, therefore it's up to us to care for ourselves. Living in MI where the employment climate is dismal doesn't afford many opportunities. However, once my son graduates from h.s. in '09, I'll be able to seek employment out of state!
So for now I can only MENTALLY tell my employer to
But I can't wait until the day comes to fruition! lol

Do you wish you could quit your job? What would you say??

I Wish I Was Fearless!

Because if I were, I:
  • Would not look down!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

  • would be like my sisters (black & non-black) who live on foreign land, and wear a bikini...TO HELL WITH MY SHAPE! I might go to a topless beach!
  • I'd skydive!
  • Cross a bridge
  • Say 'hi' to a stranger!
  • Stand on a scale!
  • Tell my weight (none of your business!!)
  • Confide in my friends that I get lonely sometimes, but I can't.
  • I'd be more diligent towards my goal of learning to ride/buy a motorcycle! YEAHHHH!
**Will work towards my goal in Spring '09**

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • Would make a huge Sunday dinner, and invite my most critical family members over to partake.
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
  • And If I were fearless, I'd take RISKS!

To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow.
But they simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love or live.

Risk must be taken because,
Only a person who risks is FREE. source

What would YOU do if you were fearless???

I Wish I Knew My Biological Father...

I LOVE MY DADDY!! My daddy adores me, always made me feel special and is not afraid to to say, 'I love you.' My daddy is special...because he knew me before I was born. He met my mother when she was already with child, and he accepted me as his 1st born.

However, I still wish I knew my biological father. From my mother's mouth, my bio father doesn't know I exist. So I'm not upset with him. I just wish I could see him, and compare notes. How are we alike? How are we different? I'm sure I have siblings. I wish there was a way I could make contact with him, as he is getting older. He is in his 70's now. My mother said he was 10yrs older than her. sigh Even my dad tried to help me locate him, to no avail.

I wish I knew my biological father.

Who is it that you wish you knew??

I Wish It Was Friday...

It's Tuesday, and I'm wishing for Friday already...sigh. Let me clarify: I wish it was Friday evening at 5:02p.m...that's it.

That means I sleep in tomorrow (Saturday), I don't have to leave the comfort of my home, and if I want to marinate in my pj's all day-then so be it.
I also wish it was Friday because I have homework due tomorrow that I haven't started. And it is a royal pain in my backside.

what about you? What day do you wish it were, and why?

I Wish I Could Talk To My Loved Ones Again...

I wish I could speak to:
  • My grandmother.  I'd tell her I'm not mad at her for being shaped like her, and for getting those pesky whisker hairs on my chin like she had.  I'd wear a beard, if I knew I could have one more day with her.
  • My aunt.  Your passing shocked everyone. You died so young (49).  It's almost 10yrs since you've left, and I wish you were here cuz the family has never been the same, esp. your kids. Your oldest grandchild is making you a great-grandmother and Ash's doing wonderful.  I told her that baby better have your name somewhere on that birth certificate!  It wasn't until u were gone that I realized you were my best friend...I'm sorry.
  • My grandfather. Papa, u were such a quiet soul.  If you were here, I'd glean as much wisdom from you as I possibly could.  I'd make you laugh more, talk to me more...til the point you'd pray for death!! lol  I love you and thank you for being a great male role model for me.
  • My cousin.  It took awhile for me to come to terms with your death, because not only did u die in ur 20's, but I didn't want to believe u were that sick.  U had the prettiest legs I had ever seen, and u were a male!! lol  I remember how rambunctious you were as a little and even as a young man, you had presence.  Your folks are doing well.  Your mother's strength is amazing :)
what relative (s) do you wish you could talk to again??

I Wish I Was in 12th grade again ...

If I could, I would do my 12th grade year in high school over, for several reasons:
  • I would've told Mrs. Harrison, I did complete the required hours in Voc Ed and I would've had all A's on my final report card, instead of 4 A's and 2 F's
  • I would've taken the English I failed in 11th grade (I ditched class bcuz the teacher bored me), in summer school instead of Creative Writing...wth??
  • I would've prepared for College life instead of listening to Jehovah's Witnesses telling me the world would come to an end by the time I graduate high school...smh
  • I'd probably be further ahead in my goals then I am now.
what would you do over in high school??
