Trying to complete my thesis this summer. Thus far it is has gone fine. I was able to find multiple reports/studies that were focused on the St. Cloud Police Department. Only problem the St. Cloud Police Department won’t talk to me face to face. I have 2 months to figure this out. Worse comes to worse my thesis will be research based.

Amazing!

This video was enlightening. Sunni and Shia are seen as polar opposites. Two groups which constantly clash with one another but if we just took the time to listen. We would learn that we are not so different after all.

Found a couple artists I’ve never heard before by the names of Honey Cocaine & Kat Dahlia on YouTube. Both of them got dope lyrics and style.

Every now and then it is a good idea to reflect upon one’s life, choices we’ve made, and the improvements needed in order to live a healthy life. These past few days I started using nicotine patches. Not only have cigarettes negatively impacted the choices I’ve made but past vices such as alcohol, marijuana, beautiful women, and lack of self-control.

In the past, the only time I could write poetry was when I was as high as a kite, smoked at least half a pack of cigarettes, and/or had a bottle of alcohol by my side or in close proximity of my right hand. This was self-destructive. It caused spiritual, physical, and mental exhaustion.

My inability to write poetry has caused me to question if quitting such vices was a good decision. Not only have these vices lead to self-destructive behavior but the past few months haven’t made it any easier. As a graduate student working two part-time jobs (at least 65+ hours a week) and attending school full-time, I’m constantly on the move.

I am not complaining nor am I seeking pity. I am sharing this information because shit happens. Life is messy but what shapes us are the actions we take in order to defeat the enemy within (our ego).

Within the next couple days my most recent poetry collection will be published via Amazon.

My dream is to have massive wealth for the sole purpose of spreading love in every direction, on every continent, and in every country. Wishing that my work plants knowledge, creates positive change, and influences young minds to lead social movements.

Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, for no one has the right to take another life. The warrior for us, is the one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.

– Sitting Bull

Who am I? If I was given the support, funds, and resources from any African, Middle East, or South East Asian country in order to bring genocide charges against the United States for its treatment of African-Americans, Native Indigenous, and other minorities; I would leave first thing tomorrow and wouldn’t stop until those crimes were answered for and the proper reparations were awarded!

First, we cannot reflect nor represent our communities if those we elect are not diverse. Hence, look at the candidates. They are all [White] European descent males including one female.

Secondly, whenever candidates talk about working on this or that bill, reaching across the aisle; it is due to the fact money was wasted in the past and they are covering up past mistakes.

Somali-Americans are pivotal to the success and growth of Saint Cloud (Minnesota). Without them, strong family values and their commitment to building a united and loving community would not be present. Saint Cloud needs you more than ever and with the fascist Donald Trump and crooked Hillary at our front door.

We need to focus on the state level. Come out and support the only Muslim candidate running for Minnesota Senate District 14 (Saint Cloud and Waite Park). We have waited too long to let this moment pass us by. Our mosques are being vandalized and young men shot to death during Ramadan.

“What right could be more basic, more inherent in human nature, than the right to choose what substances to put in one’s own body? Whether we’re talking about alcohol, tobacco, herbal cures, saturated fat, or marijuana, this is a decision that should be made by the individual, not the government.”
