George Floyd – Rest In Power

Good sir you died way too young. Your life should have not ended this way. All you wanted to do is breathe and live the rest of your life and that was taken from you. Rest in power and may justice be served in your case and in the cases of others who have died in the same way.

Quote Of The Day

I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.

Malcolm X

National Coming Out Day 2019 #lgbtq #comingoutday

To all those who have come out and for those who are seeking the courage to do so may you find strength and love as you live your truth. Grace and peace to you the LGBTQ community. May you be able to live your lives freely in the pursuit of happiness and equality.

Broadband For All, Not Just Internet

We live in a technologically broadband world where we want things to be delivered to our screens and front door as fast as possible. Going back to anything slower would not be acceptable. Technology has changed our world.

If we are using broadband and change in technology as a metaphor it makes me wonder why politically and culturally so many people want to go back to the dark ages. No one I know is pining for the good old days of dial-up Internet where it took forever to get online and we had to wait so long for things to appear on our screens.

Lately there has been the call of going back to a time where some feel like the world was at its best makes me wonder. Can you imagine people not having access to a broadband world let alone a world of opportunities they were not able to enjoy. Doesn’t it make sense to move forward and to give everyone the broadest opportunities in life where information as well as free and open existence is something they can count on.

Those who seek to narrow the bandwidth of life sound selfish to me. To throttle the speed of change isn’t a very just thing to do. A fast pipe is not too much to ask for people who seem to be told that 56K dial-up is all they should ever hope to get. Let’s just hope some people aren’t going to be taken back to the time before technology revolutionized everything. I hope that no one would have to be relegated to places where they aren’t even let in a library or a school or even places where people are making decisions that impact their lives.
