I love this poem.

My People
by Langston Hughes

The night is beautiful,
So are the faces of my people.

The stars are beautiful,
So are the eyes of my people.

Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people

Perhaps. I was reading the summaries from Thursday night and I started crying in the computer lab. In front of about 15 people.

awwww! it was fun times... and there will be fun times again... but we can't really relive the same experience... and we can't evenreally try to or we'll ruin the experiences happening now... but i understand where you're coming from... and it's really cute that you're secure enough in your masculinity to cry in front of 15 other people... did someone hug you?

No hugs *LOL*

I'm not reliving the experience. The experience is pushing me, forcing me to constantly move further along in my walk.

The only end of the road is where the golden streets begin.

God's bulldozer is bigger than any roadblock ;)

I need to remember that end of the road line... sounds like song material

lol you're always on the quest for a perfect song line...

and God's bulldozer did the job.. i guess zechy just helped me get out of the way first... or something like that... somehow Zechy helped...

That's not surprising, God put people here so he could work with us and through us.
