OUR TRUE COLOURS
Towe - a personal response the the American tradgedy.
My main business is discovering peoples True Colours.
What is the colour of their personality, their choice of environment
and the colour of their wardrobe. The main thing behind this is
to teach people how to communicate their personalities by understanding
them selves and others. Your appearance and body language speaks
volumes about who you are and how you feel about another person.
This is all before we speak to one another, before we hear what
they have to say and feel what it is they want to prevail to us.
Respect is something we all desire from other people. To be heard,
to be acknowledged and to be understood. Colouring knowledge is
all about communicating with that respect and understanding of ourselves
We did not have any colours on Tuesday the11th day of the ninth month.
It was a very dark and fearful day that not only hit America, but the
whole world. The knowledge that another so called human being can use
innocent people to destroy their own people in such away, was beyond
words and emotions.
No matter what you have seen on the news elsewhere in the world, we
stopped in our tracks to acknowledge the horrors before us on every
news channel in existence. Now the reality hits us hard, as we see the
huge number of people realizing that they have lost their loved ones
forever. The stories of their lives will come over the next few months,
the pain being fully relived each time another body comes out of the
rubble. It does not matter who you are or where you are or what the
colour of your skin is or what your race and religion are. We cannot
turn our backs on this event, because it could have been us, and if
we are not careful it still could be.
Our biggest fear now to all of us, is that it can happen again, to us.
And how do we prevent this happening again? I fully understand that
retaliation is needed, but not at the cost of more children and innocent
people trying to exist in an imperfect world. We need to understand
that the people who did this only have hate to guide them, hate born
from infancy and guided by misguided people who only know war. Can we
comprehend why these people hate America so much?
When you have nothing you are envious of those you perceive to have
everything. Again the lack of understanding that life has to be worked
for, and that America built itself up by the need to be the best and
offer the best in the world. These countries that are hurting from hunger
and poverty should look to their leaders to ask why they are in this
way, ask them why they the leaders are so rich but the people so poor.
(If they know) Yes America has interfered with other countries, and
sometime makes things worst rather than better. It's possible that all
this was done with the best of intentions and this New York tragedy
is for tham and us a wake up call.
To have people want to help and care for you, you must appeal to their
caring nature. To hate so blindly only makes things worst by bringing
out the hate that we all carry inside and blind us so that no decision
can be a good one. If you want to make a difference in this world no
matter where you live, dont judge them because you dont
understand them or because they are different to you. Take the time
to get to know them and to give a damn about what they have to say in
this world. If all people were the same, where would passion come from?
A difference makes for an interesting life, and culture teaches us about
ourselves and the need to communicate better.
Wherever you are today, take time out to get to know someone better,
to learn their ways and to understand that it is ok to be different
and to share those difference with others in a positive way. Hear them
see them and feel them. We all listen in different ways and so communication
is not just words read or spoken but acknowledging the whole of a person
mind, body and soul. Be calm, will tranquility, tolerance, and love.
Before you cast a stone against others, ask if that stone should be
cast upon you, are your thoughts so innocent? Have you made an effort
to understand? What difference have you made? Words are big, but actions
speak louder and last longer.
For the sake of this world and all humanity I wish us all understanding
and patience with one another. May the dead find peace and the living
find life amongst their pain. And may the guilty pay for their crimes.
I wish everyone the right to love, live in peaceful understanding, and
may life win over death and the right to live peacefully.

So off we went,
all aware of this last trip and that we do not spend a lot of time together
as a family anymore.
Why is it the
regular man does not quite measure up to our sexy screen stars?
