MATE MASIE

"what I hear, I keep"
symbol of wisdom, knowledge and prudence.
The implied meaning of the phrase "mate masie" is "I understand". Understanding means wisdom and knowledge, but it also represents the prudence of taking into consideration what another person has said. ***http://www.adinkra.org/htmls/adinkra_index.htm***

“That child had every right to be where he was. That child had every right to do what he was doing, walking home. That child had every right to be afraid of a strange man following him, first in his car and then on foot. And did that child not have the right to defend himself from that strange man?”

The joy of losing everything: Lia Grimanis at TEDxSixteenMileCreek

Says Forbes contributor Nick Morgan of Lisa’s talk:

An email has been sitting in my inbox for a while now, and I finally got around to clicking on the link to the video it provided. Not expecting much, I started to watch Lia Grimanis’ TEDx talk on gratitude. Soon I had tears in my eyes. 

This is a beautiful talk from a courageous woman who reminds us about what’s important.  It will change how you think about your life right now.  It’s funny, insightful and heartbreaking. Watch it — especially if you need your gratitude cup refilled, as I did after a long day and many little aggravations.

“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal — that is your success.”

—   Henry David Thoreau, born July 12, 1817, on defining your own success – a timeless, existentially necessary reminder. (via explore-blog)

“Think about it: We’re told over and over that if Zimmerman was afraid of Martin, according to Florida law, he had the right to put a bullet in the chamber of his concealed handgun, get out of his car after being told not to by the 911 dispatcher and follow and confront Martin and shoot him to death.

At the same time, we are told that Martin, who had far greater reason to fear Zimmerman, practically and for reasons of American history, did not have the right to confront his stalker, stand his ground and defend himself, including by using his fists. We are told that this was entirely unjustified and by doing so, Martin justified his own execution.”
