When most of us think of rewards, we think of earthly possessions, opportunities, or money.
Reading: Reading: Is Good and Bad Always Reciprocated? By Imad
A great many believe that all good deeds will be rewarded, and bad deeds will be punished. Given this rationale, some may never be fully compensated for the good deeds that they have dispensed.

Life requires balance and sitting on the edge or end of anything, you will fall off if you don’t do the right thing.
“Thank you for coming, ladies,” Joshua Elliot said, pulling out the empty seat between Carla and Liza.
“This better be delicious because I just postponed a date with Mr. Right,” Carla warns, snatching the menu the waiter left after serving them water and mix nuts.
Liza adds, “And I had to reschedule Rick Fox because you said it was important.”
“Girl, stop lying,” Susan said, slapping her on her left arm as everyone erupted in laughter.

Reading: What Do You See When You See Black Skin? by Jesse Wilson
This message is essential, even more so today, because we need to fight and take back our identities which so often are bestowed upon us before we have an opportunity to shine. As any Person of Colour knows, there is no denying that white supremacy dictates there is a category or a box for you. Jesse Wilson

“You talk too much!” Christine Lewinsky reached out and slapped her oldest son on his mouth with the back of her right hand. “What? You got a vagina? Is that why you can’t shut up?”

Steven Grant read the emotions of his long-time friend facing him, then asked, “What is wrong now?”
“Why do you think something is?” Retired Football Hall-of-Famer Jason Miles demands.
“Well,” Steven said, easing closer, resting his elbows on his desk, “I am your go-to person when you have all things difficult in your life. And over the past fifty years, you have had a lot. …
Angela loaned her ears to Joyce as she complained about a recent fight with her married daughter. Living with our children can be a blessing and a curse. It’s another stage of life that isn’t important enough to discuss.
She grumbled, “It’s difficult living with your children and seeing them disregarding all of the ethics, morals, and disciplines you raised them with and remain sane.”

Many parents are applauded for their children’s achievements, actions, choices, and decisions without…
According to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death
Death is the permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism.
Pain is associated with death, but so is joy. Certain circumstances or situations are attached to both emotions.
Someone said that death is a must and not a gift. Each of us has our own reason to want or wish someone dead. For many of us, it’s just out of frustration and anger. If words were bullets, and our mouths were guns, humans would add to population control by the seconds, and some in masses too.
A dictator is a leader who…
Give and take. Life and death. Come and go. Up and down. Win and lose. These aren’t just words. They are Balance speaking to us, demanding to be recognized.

I work long shifts and drive all over the place to bring them what they needed. I am the GIVER, not the TAKER.
And his story touches my heart. I, too, am a Giver, and I enjoyed myself. Sometimes it’s not by choice because I had more takers than givers. Giving is the right thing to do, whether you have a little or a…
The world is witnessing history raging and repeating itself in Afghanistan amid a deadly Pandemic. It seems as if humanity will never be out of pain and suffering. Listening to the words of many who think the Americans should leave the Afghans to their fate hurts.
They are humans, and it breaks my heart to see what they are going through, especially the innocent children.
I learned that life would find a way to reciprocate against those quick to judge without understanding. Life has its way of teaching humans what’s necessary.
If you are understanding toward someone…
I was listening to James and Lionel talking.
“I don’t understand,” James complained. “How did you get here? Twenty years ago, you were the wealthiest man in our hometown. You valued millions. Now you are the poorest. What happened?
Knowing many people who had it all, then lost it all, I too wondered about this. How could they not see or feel themselves descending? The landing of an airplane triggers our impulses. Going down a flight of stairs is sensed. For many of us, our senses are alerted when we must descend.
Success or failure, pain follow both of them…
