Beauty But Most Importantly Brains

April 12, 2008

Miss USA.jpg

Congratulations to Ms. Crystle Stewart who was recently crowned Miss USA 2008. I honestly normally would not pay this contest any attention but I was impressed by this young lady’s entrepreneurial mindset.

Crystle Stewart, of Missouri City, Texas, runs a party-planning and motivational speaking company, as well as modeling professionally. Ms. Stewart looks to dedicate her life to international philanthropy. In a society that relegates women’s roles in the media to video girls and scantily clad outfits highlighting all of their assets except their minds, I am happy that this young lady is forward thinking. I pray that she takes this opportunity to continue to network and build her professional possibilities. But also stand as a monument for all women in this country, showcasing her intellect rather than her beauty and empowering young girls to reach beyond the restraints of the images the media offers them.


Life and Times of a Law Student

Law School Blues
I hate to scare you
But to tell you the truth
Come September
You’ll have the law school blues

Oh, trust me its true
A 1L in law school
Equals the law school blues

Reading for civ pro
Language you don’t know
Think like a lawyer they’ll tell you
Law school blues is definitely going to get you

Torts is bizarre
Cases galore
The things people do
Then have the nerve to sue for
You think you can write
I assure you that you cannot
Your legal writing professor
Will fill your paper with red marks

Crim law is cool
Just like the real world
Sex drugs and murder is all that occurs
But don’t lose faith
You’ll make it through
How do I know?
Cus I’ve got the law school blues too!

Youth’s SPEAK!

March 31, 2008

Youth’s SPEAK! is one of the many new additions that will be added to the blog in the upcoming weeks. Our children provide such a wealth of knowledge in respect to all walks of life. We stand to learn a lot from them, if we ourselves would choose to listen.

The following video is a clip of young high school students speaking about our hopeful future President Barack Obama. These you students amazed me with their knowledge and their ability to articulate their thoughts on such topics. Pass this video on, let’c continue to support our youth, they are our most valuable asset!
