We are in serious difficulty all over the planet. We are going to say to the world: There’s too much of profit, too much of greed, too much of suffering by the poor… The people of the planet must be in action.” …Dennis Brutus

    Hi Sokari, I haven’t been on BL in such a long time, I almost didn’t recognize it. Congratulations on all your amazing work. I sent you a message on facebook. Let’s email and reconnect.

    RIP Dennis Brutus. An important generation is passing on and I am not entirely sure who is stepping up and into their shoes.

  2. Annie,
    BL looks great, doesn’t it?

    I think, as Barack Obama said, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” We need to step into such shoes today, or else…

    Glad to have you back Annie and yes Rethabile a wise statement by Obama – It is up to us to make the changes and build a new future. We cannot afford to wait for our children – now is the time.
