Tupac said it beautifully and perfectly; and I know he didn’t just speak it but lived it; as all of us should…
I saw this bit of inspiring news and had to reshare, because this is a sign of hope; this is a sign that the unification of the community can and I believe will finally be a reality in the future, and once again… I am a bit frustrated for I’m without the internet for a few more days thus I can’t post videos; but the link to the original article below has a video of it all.
And please… while hoping more young men follow their lead, also let us also keep in mind that with this beautiful story of men behaving as real men should, there are surely far more than we know who also behave as real men and just don’t make the news…
Community is so vital; and these men have reminded me that it’s not all an uphill battle; there IS GOOD going on… and that is indeed a reason to celebrate, if you ask me.

Joc Koe Stoe, Marty and Freddy G. were picking up some snacks at a local gas station in Bronson, Florida, when they spotted an elderly couple in distress.
100 year old David Griest and his 89 year old wife Rose had just come from a medical appointment and they stopped to use the bathroom…and David couldn’t get his ailing wife back into their van.
“Thank you so much fellas. I’m 100 years old.”
The video was taken by Deputy Kenesha Carnegie of the Levy County Sheriff’s Dept.
“I look over and three friends were assisting the couple. It was a beautiful thing to see,” said Kenesha.
“I know these men from the neighborhood, and I wanted them to have that moment to show who they really are.”
I kept thinking, ‘She could have been my grandmother.’
100 years old is a beautiful life.”
This comes as no surprise to this community.
It is what we are used to and come to expect.
This act of compassion happens a hundred times a day.
In every neighborhood and community in the country.
For every act of depravity….there are a hundred fold simple acts of kindness.
Which is why you should have no fear.
We will get through this darkness….
And back into the light….
