Being in lust, doesn’t mean you’re in love.

The edification of your financial wealth, doesn’t make you rich.

Having a life doesn’t mean you’re living.

Having followers does not constitute or even resemble, true friendship.

Saying thanks, doesn’t mean you’ve given.

Reciting Dr. Martin Luther King jr.’s dream, doesn’t mean you’re awake.

And on a more personal note, Just because I smile, doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten.

To my Blackfoot, Cherokee and African ancestors, I want to say thank you, thank you and thank you.
