I Believe in a Better Way

Fools will be fools and wise will be wise, but I will look this world straight in the eyes, because I believe in a better way.

A Country with a millenium history of hate

Too many power outages by the local power company in the past few days makes it a bit harder to operate a website. Constantly restarting the computers, even if they’re on protectors, does not contribute to a healthy rhythm, especially when the power goes off when you’re not in and find the back ups ran out of time.
Can’t help it but sometimes I find my memory going back to my Caribbean days when this happened almost daily.

In any case, this story was much longer but much of it got lost in the power shut off, and I don’t have the “guts” to start again on a story a young life cut short. Consequently my readers are now blessed with a short story and a nice short video. Maybe the fact that I put Ben Harper’s great tune “I believe in a better way” on the video’s soundtrack, may explain the frustrations that sometimes go hand in hand with a timely internet operation, information overload and a failing power supply.

Fools will be fools and wise will be wise, but I will look this world straight in the eyes, because I believe in a better way.

My thoughts today were with a 23 year old local boy who went to a miserable country that no-one should ever have to go to, let alone live; a boy who now will never turn 24. Rest in peace Kelly Mixon, sadly it was you who brought this idiot war closer to home.

‘I believe in a better way’.
