Today was an exceptional day with so much to do and with little time. I am reminded of a poet who said slow down slow down. The snow is upon us and we are about to see another wave and it is hoped that the UK will be able to battle through this one. It is imperative that we are seen to be in a position to battle through all these conditions whether it is snow, sleet, hail or even the black wall tunnel.
One is also reminded of life and all the circumstances, battles and challenges that come our way, all opportunities to make a difference all opportunities to break through. The UK with its diverse and coming of the multicultural communities whether we like it or not will eventually become a reality.
How does one breakthrough these challenges and opposing forces? Is it in accepting one’s home and the question is what are considered a home? Black people first, second and third generation should take comfort that this is their home and also to not see the UK as transhipment point taking them to somewhere else. This should be home taking advantage of the political system, taking advantage of civic society and claiming one’s rightful place should this not make a difference?
