Its KEY

Extraordinary Measures

Have you seen the film EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES starring Harris Ford, Brandon Frazier and Kerri Russell? Wow! It’s great. It came out in 2010 and IMDB users give it 6.5 stars out of 10 while Rotten Tomatoes gave it 28%. I will admit it’s about a complicated situation, in search of a cure for POMPE. Pompe is an inherited disorder caused by the buildup of a complex sugar called glycogen in the body’s cells. The accumulation of glycogen in certain organs and tissues, especially muscles, impairs their ability to function normally. But that’s not entirely what the film is about. It’s about challenges, overcoming them, riding out the process and contributing to it’s positive outcome.

That’s life. Sometimes it may require us to go to Extraordinary Measures to reach any kind of a desired outcome. Whenever I think of everyday extraordinary measures, this little guy makes the cut:

Talk about ‘hammering out a situation‘ – Little man did it.
He harassed the mock kidnapper’ – until he quit it!

He’s not a big guy but his actions are to be seen and treasured.
When it comes to safe guarding the home front, little man goes to Extraordinary Measures.

Kids are always doing the most
so raise your coffee mugs & toast,
for this young man, Daniel Beaty is his name.
He tales a #GRIOT tale; “KNOCK KNOCK” is more than a game:
.

Did you cry? I did.
Oh. My weepy eye-lids…
His heart did long
for his father – who was gone.

Gone where? He told us not.
I think he was under key and lock.
I think his dad got caught up in the hell
that is a black men imprisoned and sitting in jail.

But Daniel did not say, he simply represents
The KNOCK-KNOCK game kids — it all makes sense.

He went to Extraordinary Measures
to produce this griot treasure.

Focus not on what you’ve missed, but rather what you’ve got.
Dad sewed some good seeds in the beginning with KNOCK-KNOCK.

And so it’s the weekend again and I’m happy about it.
I awoke with surging energy and was compelled to shout it.
Me, give up on the day? Ha-Ha! No. I doubt it.
I’ll go to Extraordinary Measures to get what I won’t. I’m ’bout it.

Knock-Knock! It’s opportunity, and opportunity is good,
I’m Qui
defending the day. Give up easy? Some wish I would. 🙂

Giving up – has never been an option in my hood.
XOXO
