Day 11 of #Recovery: #MyFather, Winston David Butterfield was the best man ever invented. He passed on July 1st, 2014... He's now my #GuardianAngel, I feel him everyday. His spirit was with me during my surgery, just to keep and eye on everything and make sure they did everything right. He takes every step and every turn with me. For him, I will be more than ALL I can be, I will be #Magnificent! Daddy, I love you sooo much!!! I wear your necklace everyday, I keep you with me 24/7. You have always been my #Hero, I'm happy that it was you and mom who raised me, Y'all did the most perfect job. #iMissYou #iLoveYou #MyTeacher #MyHero #MyDaddy #Dad #Father
Day 10 of #Recovery: #HappyThanksgiving!!! I'll leave out the stories of #Squanto, slaves, lynching, etc. And focus on the important meaning that our modern world goes by. Today is a day to reflect on things that you're thankful for. The number one thing on my list will always be #God. No matter how tough life gets, I look back and remind myself, at least I have life, and a healthy one at that. There are so many people in this world who are fighting to survive, whether it be on actual life support, or sleeping on a bench in these cold winter days. We have so much to be #thankful for, and I believe that it starts with #Life & #God.
Day 9 of #Recovery: Today I went for my surgery follow up... the doctor say's I'm doing pretty good. My recovery is going well, my spirits are a little less than that, seeing all that's going on with the publication's of our kids being shot and killed. There has to be some kind of #Change that is possible to put in action. #MarvinGaye said it best in one of his lines fom #InnerCItyBlues... "Crime is increasing / Trigger happy policing / Panic is spreading / God knows where, where we're heading" This is the world we live in. #TheyDontCareAboutUs #ItsNothingNew #RacismLives #NoJustice #SadButTrue
Day 8 of #Recovery: We live in a country where it isn't ok for us kill in defense, but it's totally perfect for us to be killed just for not walking on the sidewalk, possessing candy, speaking our mind, and being a minority/middle class. If the outcome of standing your ground, or simply doing act's of defense or innocence will conclude in you being killed, then I say SHOOT BACK, It's the only logical option. The Jim Crow Laws are still so very much alive, the only difference with the modern Jim Crow Laws than the 19th Century laws is they don't have a southern barrier, they're now nation wide. We as US Citizens will NEVER have power in this nation, no matter how much voting, picketing, rioting, or petitions we get signed. They do what they want. They kill who they want. They get away with it all. #TheyDontCareAboutUs #ItsNothingNew #RacismLives #NoJustice #SadButTrue
