A word about El_Che:
"Know the smallest things and the biggest things, the shallowest things and the deepest things. As if it were a straight road mapped out on the ground ... These things cannot be explained in detail. From one thing, know ten thousand things. When you attain the Way of strategy there will not be one thing you cannot see. You must study hard."
Miyamoto Musashi, Book of Five Rings, circa 1645.
I am a revolutionary at heart. I believe that the weak must be protected and that we must all stand together in order to preserve our own humanity. We are destroying our Earth through wanton greed and when we are not killing our neighbors through war, we are destroying our bodies with chemicals of our own ingenious fabrication. Enough is enough, we must stand up and clear the path before us and begin the process to heal our selves, our families, our communities, our nation, and the world.
I have been fortunate enough to travel beyond the shores of our seas and I have found that the world in all its wonders can be a cold, dark, and a despondent Mother. However, we are very much the engineers of our own fates though we blindly stumble about crushing, reshaping and even destroying the lives of so many without even a second thought or glance of our poisoned hearts.
I have survived two war zones, and fought against the Arabs in the crusade to end terrorist extremism, and I have killed in the name of democracy and freedom while watching some of my comradeâ€™s fall to bombs, bullets, or their own painful recollections. Sometimes the wounds of the heart cut deeper than any injury to the flesh.
The Arab language is a beautiful and poetic tryst of life and death and my favorite saying was â€œas-salaam alykumâ€

Peace be upon you.
May we all learn to live with such love in our hearts that when we meet our enemies we can greet them with â€œPeace be upon youâ€.
I don't hangout.
I have read a few books. I wish I could retain what I have read, more often then not I recall things when it is too late or when I don't need to remember it.
