There Are No Certainties In Life

People die everyday, every second, it is how we die that makes an impact.  I have just been given unimaginable news by my sister, her husband’s niece is in the fight of her life.  She was in a fatal car accident, her friend did not survive the crash.  My sincere wishes to my brother-in-law’s family, his sister, and the family that lost their daughter.  There is a mother scared to death, facing the most unfathomable outcome and another has.  The fathers as well.

It is surreal that this has taken place.  I met this young lady twice, my last time seeing her was when I went to Elizabeth City in ’07 to visit my sister, my brother- in- law’s family was there visiting as well.

We also had a close call, unbeknownst to us, My cousin in Spain was on deaths door from a cold that progressed quickly, being life threatening (while he took a couple of days up North with friends and his wife in Madrid) having no immune system.  He is a tremendously active, healthy man, who got a freakish bacteria.  He had cold symptoms before he left for Madrid, and it spiraled.  I’m so thankful he is fine and well.

 

 

The Hunt On Piracy Is Now Through The DOJ

Megaupload was shut down by the FBI and has made a lot of headway, this fight is not over.  The DOJ is making an example of megaupload, and they are using SOPA snips to coincide with their other existing laws, to achieve their goal.  The legislation has not gone through, and yet criminal arrests have been made toward megaupload and I am sure others will follow.   Something smells really bad when a companies website is shut down and its owners detained  without Due process ?  Wall Street and the banks have yet to be criminally charged, since 2008.
