I'm sure by now if you're a blog head like I am you've heard about the online campaign to get LIFEBEAT to cancel the HIV/AIDS benefit concert with homophobic reggae artists Beenie Man and TKO in New York this month. My friends Keith Boykin and Jasmyne Cannick have launched a fierce call to action to stop this assault on the gay community . While I support this cause I have chosen to stay quiet on this issue and let them fight this battle. I have not sent a fax, email, or placed a telephone call to LIFEBEAT'S corporate office in New York. This particular story has just not struck a chord with me, and I believe if I'm not passionate about an issue I shouldn't rally behind the cause. I support those whole heartedly who have attacked this injustice head on.
My focus happens to be more personal right now. Have you ever heard the saying "be careful what you ask for"? Well in 30 days my life could possibly change again. I wish I could elaborate but I have to wait until everything is for certain. I'll just give you a hint by the images up above.
Forrest was right when he said "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get".
