My brother’s thoughts

  • Frederick Douglass once said: “When I ran away from slavery, it was for myself; when I advocated emancipation, it was for my people; but when I stood up for the rights of women, self was out of the question, and I found a little nobility in the act.”

mott1MESSAGE OF THE TREE

We are all like trees.

We have roots, and even if they have been cut off, new ones can grow.

There are branches which like the mind must bear fruit, and the seed grow into meaningful objectives.

Like leaves, our archaic misconceptions must fall and become the manure to give us the strength to grow taller and stronger.
