I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

MR. WENDAL






"Mr. Wendal" is a single released by influential rap group Arrested Development in 1992, from their most commercially successful album, 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of....The song was written about the plight of the homeless and encourages people not to ignore them just because of their status or how they look. The song reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, which is one of their highest positions and, a month earlier, reached #4 in the UK Singles Chart, continuing the group's string of hits in both countries. How many of us have seen our fair share of Mr. Wendals? So many of our fellow human beings are living on the streets simply looking to make it to another day. While I know that we can’t simply help everyone, it doesn’t serve us the right to ignore these persons either. There are SO many ways to be of service to others, yet we act as if those in need deserve to be living a life without the basic necessities. I am of the opinion that we grow richer every time we give of ourselves…ESPECIALLY when we give of ourselves with no thought of return. Giving selflessly to others is an act of love that can fill us with satisfaction beyond measure. Not only do we have the opportunity to see how our gifts benefit others, but we get to experience the priceless sensation that comes from offering our care and concern to others. The fact that we are in a position to give allows us to appreciate the overflow of abundance in our lives that allows us to give freely. Give what you can today in service of others, and your efforts will carry a handsome return. I am sure Mr. Wendal would appreciate you…
