I hurried into the local department 1Z0-808 free dumps store to grab1 some last 300-320 arch dumps CISSP Study Guide minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked Testprepwell Cisco 200-105 dumps at all Testprepwell the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would be in here forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished Cisco 200-105 dumps that Cisco 300-320 Dumps I could just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the people to the toy department. Testprepwell Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, CISSP Study Guide and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the Learnguidepdf corner of my eye 1Z0-808 free dumps I saw a little boy about 5 CISSP Study Guide holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. I could not Cisco 200-105 dumps seem to help myself. I just kept Learnguidepdf loking over at the Cisco 300-320 Dumps CISSP Study Guide Cisco 200-105 dumps Cisco 200-105 dumps little boy and wondered who the doll was for. Testprepwell I watched Testprepwell him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are Testprepwell you sure Cisco 200-105 dumps I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit Cisco 300-320 Dumps impatiently, “You 1Z0-808 free dumps know that you don’t have Testprepwell enough money for it.” The aunt told the little 300-320 arch dumps boy not Learnguidepdf to Cisco 300-320 Dumps go anywhere that she had to go CISSP Study Guide and get some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the Testprepwell CISSP Study Guide doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was Cisco 200-105 dumps for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so 300-320 arch dumps badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that Testprepwell maybe Santa Learnguidepdf was Cisco 200-105 dumps going to bring it 1Z0-808 free dumps . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the doll Cisco 300-320 Dumps to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. Cisco 200-105 dumps He looked at me Testprepwell with the saddest 300-320 arch dumps eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus. 1Z0-808 free dumps

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have CISSP Study Guide to go be with her.” Cisco 300-320 Dumps My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, “I told my 1Z0-808 free dumps Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told 1Z0-808 free dumps him to tell her to wait till I got back from the Cisco 300-320 Dumps store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to Cisco 300-320 Dumps see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the Cisco 200-105 dumps store.

I Testprepwell Cisco 200-105 dumps love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But CISSP Study Guide Daddy says she Cisco 200-105 dumps will need to be with my sister.” Learnguidepdf I saw that the little CISSP Study Guide boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While 1Z0-808 free dumps he Learnguidepdf was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, 300-320 arch dumps “Shall we 1Z0-808 free dumps 1Z0-808 free dumps count that miney Learnguidepdf one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his and we began Cisco 300-320 Dumps Cisco 200-105 dumps 1Z0-808 free dumps to count Cisco 300-320 Dumps it . Cisco 300-320 Dumps Of course it was plenty for the 300-320 arch dumps 300-320 arch dumps doll.

Testprepwell And Testprepwell he heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave Cisco 200-105 dumps me enough to buy the doll and a rose for Testprepwell my Mama. She loves white rose so much. “In a few minutes the Learnguidepdf aunt came back and I wheeled my cart 300-320 arch dumps away. I Cisco 300-320 Dumps could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my Testprepwell shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several Learnguidepdf days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 CISSP Study Guide a little girl and the CISSP Study Guide Mother was in serious 1Z0-808 free dumps 300-320 arch dumps 300-320 arch dumps condition. The family was Learnguidepdf deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this 300-320 arch dumps little boy CISSP Study Guide did not belong with Learnguidepdf that 300-320 arch dumps story.Two days later I read Learnguidepdf in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support and the young woman had died. I could not forget the 1Z0-808 free dumps little boy Cisco 300-320 Dumps and just Learnguidepdf kept wondering if Cisco 300-320 Dumps the Cisco 200-105 dumps two were somehow connected. Later Cisco 300-320 Dumps that Cisco 200-105 dumps Testprepwell day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them 1Z0-808 free dumps to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. Learnguidepdf I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little Learnguidepdf boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Sean Paul will perform in apartheid Israel, following in the footsteps of Ziggy Marley and Damian Marley.

The days of viewing reggae artists as freedom fighters through music, are long gone. Today, reggae is just another genre of music. The sole goal of reggae artists, just like their hip hop, country and R&B counterparts; is to make money. Then again, maybe that’s the way it always was and we were just too blind to see. After all, there are far more reggae artists who became Rastas than there are Rastas who became reggae artists. That says a lot and is definitely something to think about.

So just like Ziggy Marley and Damian Marley, Sean Paul will be performing in apartheid Israel, in early 2016. Now, Sean Paul is a bald head who sings party songs for the clubs and dancehalls; so maybe he should not be held to the same high standards as Rasta artists who sing songs promoting equal rights and justice. At the same time there should be some standards. Some West Indies cricketers led by Lawrence Rowe played in apartheid South Africa in 1981 and 1982. These were athletes playing a sport, not advocates fo0r justice, yet they were banned from playing cricket because of their actions. They were not reinstated until 1989 after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison. Jimmy Cliff’s career also took a dive when he performed in apartheid South Africa. So why today, is there no outrage for these artists who are performing in apartheid Israel?

Today if reggae artists like Sizzla, Beenie Man, Capleton and others don’t acknowledge that they denounce all homophobic music, they can’t perform at any overseas events because of boycott from the homosexual community. Why aren’t reggae artists requiring that the promoters of these events in Israel come out and denounce apartheid before agreeing to perform on their events?

Again, Sean Paul is not in the same position as a Rasta artist, and he should go and perform and make a living. As a human being with a voice, however, he should say something about what is taking place in Israel. He should not be quiet just because the price is right. The Marley boys should also perform in apartheid Israel if they please, before doing so, however, they should stop hijacking the Rasta movement. Rasta is about equal rights and justice for all and the justice comes before financial gains. If one cannot live by that simple principle, he should not claim to be Rasta.

  1. The MARLEYS rastas? Don’t make me laugh! They have been ‘pimpin’ BOB & his legacy for years & they are only interested in MONEY & FAME, They are a ‘TALENT FREE ZONE’, Just a bunch of PARASITES! TINA TURNER also went to APARTHIED South Africa & RAY CHARLES, BROOKE BENTON, BETTY WRIGHT, PERCY SLEDGE, WILSON PICKETT, DIONNE WARWICK, the O’JAYS & the STAPLE SINGERS, etc, the list of performers with no ‘MORAL CONSCIENCE’ is ENDLESS!
