If you’re like me, you have droves of friends and family headed out to Cancun this week for the homie, O International’s, Annual Cancun Jumpoff. If you’re like me, you have friends who have been shopping, and saving money, and working out, getting themselves prepared for this annual event!
I never push my spiritual beliefs on anyone but I just want all of us to pray for our loved ones (and ourselves for whom it applies) while they’re out there. Let’s ask that it be a joyous event, full of fun, and great weather, and good times. It’s unfortunate, that because of the size of my network, I hear some of the not so fortunate stories of what happens at these events. Pregnancies that lead to abortions and/or fatherless children, contracted STD’s and STI’s, hospitalizations, injuries stemming from drunkery and being under the influence, rape, and a few other things. Fortunately, the Good & Happy stories out weigh the not so good stories by a landslide but I would love it of the not so good stories didn’t even occur.
Speaking of my network, I happen to know a few Mexicans. Some of whom do not necessarily have the most “positive and law abiding” past. They have mentioned Mexican plans and plots to kidnap Americans in exchange for ransom and due to an underlying bitterness towards America and our border policies that are not in favor of Mexicans. Again, some of you may only think of Cancun as it pertains to the Fun & Sun, and that’s the way that we all like to imagine it… That’s the way that we’d all hope vacations turn out. But the reality of it is, there are always things lurking, and always blind spots in our vision, especially when Fun & Sun is all that we’re thinking about.
So again, if you would be so kind, please send up a prayer to the Sky Chief asking that our friends (and ourselves for those of us who are going) be covered, protected, and Blessed with wisdom in their decision making while they have fun and get a chance to get away from the everyday hustle. I’d appreciate that…
Just thinking about some of the things out there that are against us, makes me think of a track that I did called “Just Wanna Be Heard” Featuring Masta Ace & Flo Blitz. It’s on The Spencer Code Mixtape. Feel free to download it for FREE ~> HERE <~ And of course, I’d love to hear your feedback….
