Merry Christmas to my friends and family in America and all over the world. Today I ask that you show some restraint before allowing that negative idea or desire to go bad come to fruition. I ask that you think twice before getting on your high horse and telling everyone about the Pagan origins of Christmas and that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25. We live in America, the fact of the matter is today is probably the least Pagan day of an almost purely Pagan culture, and honestly, the accuracy of the date of his birth is not as important as the love and sacrifice associated with his life. Today I ask that regardless of your religion or beliefs that you take a moment to be thankful for the life you have, to give someone a genuine hug, to flash your beautiful smile, to listen to someone that needs to be heard, to forgive someone, and to enjoy a peaceful meal with your family. Take a moment to say a prayer for someone, because whether you know it or not, there are many who are struggling to cope with the absence of their loved ones or barely hanging on themselves; your kindness matters. Today I ask that you show the your friends, your family, and the world what humanity can be when we’re at our best. Merry Christmas and love you family.. Peace and blessings to you all. — Sean King
I’ll save my diatribe on the origins of Thanksgiving and all the other questionable history of America for another day, and will simply say…
I give thanks to the Creator for blessing me with another day of life. I give thanks to my ancestors for providing the shoulders that I now stand on. I give thanks to you, my family and friends, for providing the backbone for who I am and giving me the constant push I needed to keep me moving 4-ward. I give thanks to every situation I’ve encountered and every person that God has allowed me to cross paths with, even for a brief moment, because I have faith that it all has meaning. I say prayers for every one of my brothers and sisters across the globe who are alone, depressed, ill, incarcerated, missing someone special, oppressed, or in need of uplift for any reason… Insha’Allah/God Willing, my prayers will reach you and give you what you need. I stand with you in solidarity; as a father, as a man, as a human being, and as a child of God with a smile and a faithful belief that we will collectively find a way to make this world better. I greet you with love and a smile on this beautiful day. I hope you are standing with me and smiling back… ~ Sean King
Life is too beautiful and our blessings are too plentiful not to be thankful. Today I want to encourage all of my family, friends, associates, and anyone whose path I happen to cross to shed the shackles of all those negative things in your life that are holding you down, back, or keeping you from moving forward – and to leap into the arms of your personal freedom.
Life is too beautiful and our blessings are too plentiful not to be thankful. Good morning.
