His power is forever present


Everyone should watch this. I watch it always—whether I’m sad, happy, lonely—and it just provides me with so much love, light and power! 

Rest in Peace Maya Angelou. I’ve learned a lot from you and there’s so much more I will continue learn from you. Thank you.

The tears are overflowing

In Just Under Six Months


We have lost the liberator of South Africa.

We have lost the immutable voice of Justice.

We have lost lover and projection of our Beauty.

In just under six months we have lost Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka, and now Maya Angelou.

May their lives continue to inform our living.
May their place amongst the ancestors be highly exalted.
May we, be all they called us to be, unashamedly, without fear, with all grace and strength.

So, by now you have all heard of 22 year old Elliot Rodger who went on a killing spree in Isla Vista, a community in Santa Barbara, California. One Friday night, Elliot shot and killed 7 people, including himself, close to the University of California Santa Barbara campus.

Prior to his violent shooting rampage, Elliot recorded a video titled, Day of Retribution in which he states, “college is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. In those years I’ve had to rot in in loneliness, it’s not fair.” and “you girls have never been attracted to me, I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it”.

About a month ago, after seeing some of Elliot’s YouTube videos, his family contacted authorities. Law Enforcement interviewed Elliot and said they found him to be a ‘perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human’ and took no further action.

Now we have media outlets labeling Elliot as a “mad man”, “spoiled brat”, “misunderstood”, “good human” etc and continuing to file this mass murder under mental health.

Understand that no one is saying that he did not suffer from mental illness, I’m sure he does. But we CANNOT ignore the fact that this mass killing was rooted in his hate of women (misogyny) and inability to properly deal with rejection. There is much to unpack about this incident, how it was handled and how it will be portrayed in the media, but for now I’ll post some tweets from those of us responding to the shooting on twitter.
