In Flight

You are far more than the woman you see in the mirror.Simply more than a 9-5.EXTRAORDINARY. Unfazed by obstacles, perpetual is your drive. Your aura of invincibility, your spirit of strong will, your disposition of I Will. You glow in your passions, passionate in your pursuits. You are everything I aspire to be and everything that will always

"We fight every night, now that's not kosher/I reminisce with bliss of when we was closer/And wake up to be greeted by an argument again/You act like you're ten."
He is overly demanding of your time and must be the center of your attention
He is always right, has to win or be in charge. He always justifies his actions so he can be “right” by blaming you or others.
Tells you you’re crazy or stupid so the blame is turned on you. Tries to make you think that it’s your fault he is the way he is
His mood switches from aggressive to apologetic and loving after the outburst has occurred.
Punishes you by playing the "silent game"
Does not acknowledge his faults or blames it on his childhood or outside circumstances.

Chaff & Grain

Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a
person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring
them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain
that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth
keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

Without Jah

This is awful. I'm sorry but when you see how the women are being treated in the Middle East, our "war on terror" is more than justified. The men treat their women like property. They keep them covered not because they love them and want to protect them but because it means they have the power and the control. Forcing a woman to live under such harsh conditions (flogged 200 times for having an "affair,") being raped and then accused of having an affair, being sold to your husband at the age of 1 and consummating the marriage by age 9, being told not to speak in public, and wearing a full head veil at ALL times are all ways of keeping the women down. When you treat someone like property and less than second class their whole lives they themselves will believe it and accept their lives as it is. That is exactly what the Muslim men want. They want the power and control. Now we have American Muslims fighting to have Shria Law here in the US so that their wives cannot divorce them. It is awful


This image provided by Time magazine shows the cover of the Aug. 9, 2010 issue, with a photo of Aisha, an 18-year-old Afghan woman. Aisha's nose and ears were cut off in 2009, under orders from a local Taliban commander acting as a judge, as punishment for fleeing her husband's home.

This is not a battle between the United States of
America and terrorism, but between the free and democratic world and

Tony Blair
