The Other Love – On Love from Africa Selections

They make you laugh

Then they hurt or annoy you

They “borrow” and break your things,

But would give you the world in a heartbeat

They defend you ferociously but will correct you when you’re wrong, even from across the globe

There is nothing they won’t do for you but sometimes they want way too much from you

Endless laughter keeps us going, even when it seems the world is against us

Anger between us is only temporary because the love we have for each other is never ending

My home, my heart, my friends, my blood, my family

I love you all way too much

And these are my final thoughts on Love from Africa

“I Disapprove of What You Say, But I Will Defend to the Death Your Right to Say It” Evelyn Beatrice Hall

“I Disapprove of What You Say, But I Will Defend to the Death Your Right to Say It” Evelyn Beatrice Hall

We all disagree this we know but letting others think what they want this we don’t seem to be able to do.

We always have to comment wonder how to try convince others of our vision, our religion or to our political party.

Life has brought us all to this exact position so you may never be able to reason with others to bring them to your side.

Use of violence to convince never works not only because you are now allowing yourself to have violence used to have your mind changed but also because all it does is build resentment not true conversion.

Violence will make people agree with you for the moment but real and true discourse will allow you to not only change the mind of that person but their husband, their children, their friends and maybe even others in their communities.
