Persevere Padawan


 I firmly believe that everyone has the capacity to embody the principles of J.E.D.I - Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity - if they have a deep understanding of these values. To become a J.E.D.I, one must first understand the importance of justice, fairness, and equal rights for all, regardless of their race, religion, gender, or sexuality.

Equity means recognizing that everyone has unique needs, abilities, and challenges, and working to ensure that each person has access to the same opportunities and resources to thrive. This requires us to acknowledge and address systemic inequality and oppression, and actively work to dismantle it.

Diversity is crucial in building a just and inclusive society, as it allows for varied perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds to be valued and integrated. To embrace diversity, we must cultivate empathy, curiosity, and openness to learning from people who are different from us.

Lastly, inclusivity means creating spaces and systems that welcome and empower people from all backgrounds and identities. This requires us to actively challenge and change discriminatory practices and norms, and actively work to create environments that are safe and inclusive for everyone.

Overall, becoming a J.E.D.I requires ongoing learning and growth, but if we are committed to these values, we can create a truly just and equitable society for all.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
