Afrophobia

…and so it seems that fear is a root cause of much of the attacks on us, by us and within us…after all, my definition of U.S. is not a fictional projection of united states, but rather Untied Strengths — U.S.

….but then I ask myself why is there the fear of U.S.?

At first I thought there was a fear of being eaten by our own creations, such as a sandwich…

Then I came to a realization that the unknown is often what we fear the most, yet we wrestle with explorations albeit only with our toes in the waters of life…

Hmmmm

United Strengths at the root and the root of mankind is Mother Africa…now I begin to understand the root of:

Afrophobia

If I were a tree…

…you couldn’t see my face

…but you could still see me

…and through that lens see W.E.

W — World

E — Everywhere

After all, it’s the me in we that calms me down and raises my head, when I pray, giving me more confidence to enjoy the journey, the gifts, the light, the joy, the love, the challenges and mountains of the Universe left to climb.

If I were a tree…

…you couldn’t see my face

…but you could still see me

…and through that lens see W.E.

¿OuiOui?
