THE SAD

Glamorous, beautiful American actress Soul Diahann Carroll of 80’s DYNASTY Fame , and in JULIA (American sitcom , she was a widow raising her son “CORY” in positive manner). Passed on at age of 84. She worked in an era of racial, social and gender inequality, yet, she maintained her uncompromising Standards, dignity and, Class.

The Ugly:

Donald Trump becomes the 3rd US president to face Impeachment.(Others are Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton,president Nixon did face some formal charges also during his term. Though, none has been removed while in office because, it’s how the government was set up. Dec 10th 2019, the Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi ‘arch enemy ‘ of the president (no love lost between those two, obvious from their social media bantering) got her ‘ pound of flesh’, dripping with blood, as she slammed two articles of impeachment; one for “misuse and abuse of power” for pressuring Ukraine government to investigate his political competitors, while withholding $400m in security funds. The other article of impeachment was for Trumps disregard and “obstructing investigations” into his probe ;deliberating falsifying and refusing to cooperate with congress!

And to all of this, Trump dubs : “the greatest witch hunting in the history of united states”. And this : “greatest Hoax”,! What the future holds politically for this grandiose speaking, 45th president remains to be seen. One thing that’s for sure, time is no more on his side, literarily!

THE INCREDULOUS

THE BEAUTIFUL ONES ARE BORN

AT the NAACP awards , Big Winner TRACEE ELLIS ROSS star of hit award winning BLACK-ish T.V Drama , stands tall and ready to fly.

It was an eventful , interesting year 2019! The good, the bad,the Sad , the ugly, and the incredulous. Not all could be mentioned due to space constraint.

We hope for a better year 2020 with more positive news , less drama in the white house, Judiciary , legislative and law-making institutes. More productiveness, and affirmative actions in environmental climate change, reclaiming the ocean , waste reduction, recycling and re-newing our mindset.

Remember your Image matters, So live excellently!
