Description: As I approach the 60th revolution around our star, I have discovered many things. Most have been from the school of hard-knocks and the remainder in books and other form of media. Every year peace slips, to use a metaphor, beneath the waves. In the four-thousand years of human existence, scientist and population theorist have theorized that only one- hundred and twenty years of peace has existed among humankind. Most differences between people have been skin color and wealth. The Negro was only counted as 3/5th of a person in the United States Constitution. In my life, I never thought a black man/woman would ever be the leader of the so-called free world. Even Thomas Jefferson considered the African inferior in all aspects. No matter what decisions are made in the Oval Office, discrimination is rampant in American society. As medical technology improves and increases the quality of the disabled, the mind-set, again, needs to change. I find myself struggling to temper with the ambulatory as I am appeased and pitted. Hopefully it will not take centuries to change. Look inside your soul. The Axiom -- People First, Disability, Second. Peace.
