KW did it again. My twitter blew up & they wouldn’t let me live it down at our Escandalo party last night.
Wrote this in July. Forever true. 1 Corinthians 13:5

"Mastery requires endurance. Mastery, a word we don’t use often, is not the equivalent of what we might consider its cognate — perfectionism — an inhuman aim motivated by a concern with how others view us. Mastery is also not the same as success — an event-based victory based on a peak point, a punctuated moment in time. Mastery is not merely a commitment to a goal, but to a curved-line, constant pursuit."

Today would have been Trayvon Martin’s 19th birthday. Please remember him. A young life gone too soon with justice unserved. Despite the fact that his killer is now trying to make a profit from this and is being labeled a “celebrity”, let us not forget Trayvon’s struggle and memory through all of this. Despite how the media tried to portray him.. Remember him. We must resolve to fight injustice with awareness, action and love. 

Prayers & thoughts for his family.
