“You’re living at a time of extremism, a time of revolution, a time when there’s got to be a change. People in power have misused it, and now there has to be a change and a better world has to be built and the only way it’s going to be built is with extreme methods. And I for one will join in with anyone, I don’t care what color you are, as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth.

anonymity of the hoodie

I was on my way home tonight when I saw one of my mom's friends walking out of his front door. I was prepared to walk past whilst flinging a 'what's up' his way but this guy wanted to talk. Okay, deep sigh, 'dang it's late.' Small talk, banter, I say, "hey, where do you store your bike during the winter?" As the words were leaving my mouth I realized what I had asked him. He went off. The man started on this trip that ended like this, "if i catch you in my yard...you're dead."

It was then that I saw the fire in his eye and the unsteadiness of his gait. After an ancillary embrace I walked off into the night--amused.

God bless the old folks.
The younger generation just don't have that kinda trust and respect in their fellow men.
