Just like moons and like suns, with the certainty of tides


“Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise…”

Maya Angelou, Still I Rise



  1. “It’s the hope of slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs; the hope of immigrants setting out for distant shores; the hope of a young naval lieutenant bravely patrolling the Mekong Delta; the hope of a millworker’s son who dares to defy the odds; the hope of a skinny kid with a funny name who believes that America has a place for him, too.

    Hope — Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope!”

    Handsome, smart men are back in the White House. Hottie rin si Rahm. 🙂

  2. medyo controversial lang ata si rahm ng kaunti. operator ata. pero yes, cutie siya. love them dark and brooding types!
