Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

Is the sky really falling?

Everyone knows that old wives tale about about bad things happening in groups of three. For instance a old famous actor dies, within a month two more equally old and famous actors kick the bucket. Well lately it seems that the planes are falling out the sky in groups larger than three.

It started with the plane back in January that landed in the Hudson river after running into a flock of birds. Emergency landing, everyone was safe and sound. Then there was a fatal crash in upstate New York the middle of February flowed by a Turkish plane crash a week later near Amsterdam. Today we have two more plane crashes, one in Montana and one in Japan.

That just seems like a lot to me in a three month time period. In a world where we have always been told that statistically flying is safer than driving is it time to rethink those numbers? Or should we just invest in Amtrack?
