The Miles have torn their worlds Apart

Recently, I have found myself have nightmares and daydreams about South Africa. It is my thoughts and in my prayers. I think that I way to privledged and I do not deserve it. I do not want to hear the cliche answer that I am blessed and I should do something with my blessing. I want to know what is right and what equality is. I am not seeing. They might not be our country, but they are our brothers and sisters. I cannot stop thinking about my trip. I think their is something to that simple statement. I cannot forget about it. It won't leave my mind, yet it haunts my mind because I want to respond....

People ask me all kind of questions and I am finding myself forgetting the info I learned and saw. I do not like it. I do not want to forget that culture, but I want to be an active part of it... Sighs.. All of this is so frustrating.. I have been looking for employment over there. I will not give up. I am very interested in working and living over there.


This is an African sunset .. Enjoy...
