How awesome is this?! I wish I was there to experience my most favorite piece of music ever, Handel's Messiah, which was part of a Random Acts of Culture in Philadelphia, PA!!! It's soooo majestic! Hallelujah! --LKR
This is our 6 1/2 month old's first peek at any significant snow. Pookie is observing the 1/4"-1/3" of snow we had overnight. He will not be out playing in it, as he's an indoor kitty like our other felines. But I may surprise him with a bowl full of snow so he can experience it! --LKR
Thanks to all of our men and women in the military--past, present, and future--and their families. It is a great sacrifice that is very much appreciated and should never be neglected in remembering who they were and what they fought for. Freedom is not free and must be protected. Those that were injured or died serving their country must never have died in vain. Value your freedom, and thank a veteran for what they did for you! We must not take our freedom for granted! --LKR
This is Nick Cannon's song, "Can I Live". It's about his mother's last minute decision not to abort him when she was in an abortion clinic, laying on a gurney. Powerful.
To any young, scared women out there who are pregnant, Nick is empathetically speaking to you from his heart. There are many people who understand what you are going through and care very much for you and your unborn child. May you be able to muster the same courage his mother did! :-) --LKR
Can I Live
I'm talking Ma I know the situation is personal but it something that has to be told as i was making this beat, you was all i could think about you heard my voice
[Verse 1] Yeah just think just think what if you could just just blink your self away.. just just wait just pause for a second let me plead my case Its the late 70's huh You seventeen huh and having me that will ruin everything huh it's alot of angels waiting for their wings you see me in your sleep so you cant kill your dreams $300 thats the price of living what? Mommy I dont like this clinic hopefully you'll make the right decision and dont go though with the knife incision but it hard to make the right move when you in high school how you got to work all day and take night school hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring What you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning
[Chorus] I'll always be a part of you trust your soul know its always true. If I could talk I'd say to you CAN I LIVE, CAN I LIVE I'll always be a part of you trust your soul know its always true. If I could talk I'd say to you CAN I LIVE, CAN I LIVE
[Verse 2] I'm a child of the king ain't no need to go fear me and I see the flowing tears so know that you hear me When I move in your womb that's me being scaring, 'cause who knows what my future holds Yo, the truth be told you ain't told a soul Yo, you ain't even showing I'm just 2 months old Through your clothes try to hide me deny me, went up 3 sizes Your pride got you lyin' sayin' it ain't nothin' but a migraine It ain't surprisin' you not tryna to be in WIC food lines Your friends look at you funny, but look at you mommy, that's a life inside take a look at your tummy What is becoming, ma, i'm Oprah bound You can tell he's a star from the ultrasound Our spirits connected doors open now Nothing but love and respect thanks for holding me down She let me live...
[Nick Talking] Its upliftin' fo'real ya'll I ain't passing no judgement ain't making no decisions I'm just telling ya'll my story I love life And I love my mother for giving me life We all need to appreciate life A strong woman that had to make a sacrifice Thanks for listening Thanks for listening Ma thanks for listening
