News Peruse

news-peruseLet’s talk about what’s gone wrong and let’s talk about what’s still good.
Let’s talk about the #GunViolence breakout in OUR neighborhoods.

To the news on the tube – we are glued and in full submission
wondering if the breaking news of a MASS SHOOTING is to be considered TERRORISM.

Mass violent death tolls have risen and I’m sitting here asking the universe why?
What is the cause that beats all and has convinced folk to take their own and others lives?

God shield us from minds that have adopted ill plights – and thanks for every ill attempt thwarted.
Bless the surviving families in morn for those who have – in a mass casualty, departed.

What happened in San Bernadino on Wednesday morning – surely God forbade.
Someone targeted and shot up a social center for the disability – while hey were in mode celebrate.

14 were killed and 21 were hurt.
2 suspects are dead – though initially they were looking for a third.

1 of the deceased  was a woman. What in the world?
I thought sugar and spice were the ingredients of girls.

I guess that was the word back then – when I was a kid.
I guess things have changed. Ingredients reneged.

Turns out the deceased female was the co-terrorists wife
Seems the two of them planned the day of mayhem and strife.

Apparently this was their plan – to end theirs and others lives.
They left behind a 6-month old baby and a lifetime of WHY’s.

We see it, we hear it – but what’s going on and what are we to do
with the out break of mass shootings? Bleak reality truths.

Those folks done up and left their youth
leaving behind mass pains that weigh on me and you.

In the end we’ve learned there wasn’t a 3rd suspect.
The terrorist came and lived a short reign – before law enforcement escorted them to death.

Basically, they ceased the terrorizing and put the betrothed terrors in check.
May good always triumph. Mayhem’s a bad bet.

Somebody said praying to God won’t fix it – God can’t help.
If we turn away from our foolish ways – I believe He’ll help us arm ourselves.

Too bad this isn’t an isolated neighborhood, so that we could all just move.
To harm thyself and as many others in a radial distance – is a nasty groove.

From bad energy – I do remove myself. This is serious business. This is real life.
I’ll continue to watch and pray as I’m on my way. I’ll utilize a vigilant eye.

Life is so good… so why? Who lit the nasty fuse?
I refuse to yield all chatter to bad in this winter News Peruse.

Therefore I’m going to talk about something else – let’s get it understood,
Qui Entertainment is into positive energy and passing on vibes of good.

We are into spreading unity and weighing in on the social scales.
We’re into you and your safety too. Not interested in hand baskets bound for hell.

So let’s lighten things up for a spell. Keep praying but keep smiling too.
Life is short and evil will meet its thwart still there’s so much LIFE in you.

How are you feeling? How do you want to feel? Reach down and grab your boot straps.
Pull them up, give yourself a hug. Go out, fist bump and dap.

Clap! Clap! It’s Friday baby and the world does hold much
The available vibes are sad, glad, mad, angry, fear or love.

What’cha want? You can have it.
And when life get’s a little funky – kick back and laugh at it.

The spirit of offense is on the troll and it’s hoping to affect you.
Look at what’s going on. Resist giving in to the offensive truths.

No matter what, you are the master of your own fate.
Be happy, be brave and watch what and whom you invite into your space,

in your life, on your journey — be sure to vet each one.
Nothing in life is free, not even safety – no assured funs.

It’s me and you hun’, let’s ride this thing out flat.
Let’s put down the corn and dismiss the scorn – we need to have each others back.
Can you do that?

Enough of my UNITY PUSH, there are other headlines in the news.
I know you didn’t drop by to get single topic high – so do let us peruse:

divider blk_south1. Georgia had a mass shooting on Wednesday as well.
Instead of 14 dead, they lost 4 and mass media coverage was light in tell.

 2. Elevator Interlude. Who’s riding ‘that thing’ with you?

3. Reclaiming the F-Word. Returning Ownership to the girls

4. Politicing on Twitter:  Compare & Contrast.  Who are the GO GETTERS?

5. Laughter heals the soul – it only stops when you get too old. Don’t get old.


It’s Friday baby and good news still exists on the books,
I’m Qui
Be determined to find your good. It may not be surface; so be on the look.

Living in a constant state of terror – Evolusion

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, TV Shows on April 3, 2015 at 6:09 pm


Whose terrorizing who and does it matter if it’s in-house or abroad? Terror is terror. Either stop it (inflicting it upon others) or stop complaining (when it’s inflicted up on you). I found this piece on youtube and thought this would be a GOOD FRIDAY to share it.

No. There’s no resurrecting (underlying) tone here. Unfortunately this topic has not ever died:

What’s the state of the union today? Peeps look a little paranoid.
We all jump at the slightest thump of “issue banging” noise.

Today is Friday and a Good one, at that
A lot of good still exists and is waiting to be had.

No one should have to live paranoid and always having to watch their backs.
That “fragile unfold” is for our counter folks, but is the norm if you are black.

We handle satellite news better when told a ‘terror is seeking us out.’
You know [abroad] terrors aren’t mad at me. We know what this is about.

When those abroad think of “hate towards the USA,”
even though our CEO is black – they target a much lighter race.

The face of this nation is not black, nor has it ever been.
But when wrath is threatened from abroad – patriotism makes us kin.
Regardless of the color of our skin.

Rising from domestic smoke and debris of wars past – my skin is still black
and as soon as “abroad” terroristic tensions die — society will remind me of that.

The cycle is whack. Knowledge beats confusion.
If you think “abroad terror” is targeted at me — that’s your delusion.

Throwing insightful bones, I hope not to yield you a contusion.
I’m Qui 
living black and been ‘watching my back’ – not living in Evo-lusion.

Unity or bafoonary?
To heart or a farce?
