I heard an old saint tell me that when the Elders transition out of this world to the next then the young folks have to step up to take they rightful place in the village! Sometimes we spend all this time admiring foreign heroes and legends that we take no time to admire those within our own community and family at times. My grandfather was everything that I wanted to be growing up as I road my big wheel around his corner store in overtown with the local kids! He always expressed the strength of being a black man but the burden of carrying the weight. He was businessman and owned property in Miami when black people could even go to certain areas of Miami such as the beach! He would tell me of the stories of the great jazz and blues artist that came through to play in his club back in the day! I called him Pop but the people know him as “Moon,” not realizing that he got the name from running Moonshine for gangster up from Homestead! He would tell me stories of how he would be out in the woods for days making his scotch, gin, and vodka! He would say with pride and southern Georgia accent, “I was the best to ever do it..I’d stay out till sunrise until see the rabbit try to get into my brew!”
My grandfather is and was legend and it will be honor to eulogize him !

This is the cornerstone of my worship unto God my Father! The question you must ask yourself if you didn’t have a problem or you were not afraid of your demise would you still serve through worship, prayer, supplication, reading and service to mankind? This is a sign of unconditional love! Doing with no benefit to others! #prophetic this is the kind of #ummah I want to be apart of! #believer #db3life (made with @hellonotegraphy) #notegraphy
