I like this video because it is so thought-provoking.  Who do some of us think we are, really?  This is another one o those social experiments just to see how a person would react in a particular situation. In this instance, a “homeless” man is sitting on the street trying to “give” money to people as they pass by.  The reactions are… well stunning in most instances.  Watch and see for yourself.  Let me know what you think.  How would you react if a “homeless person” gave you money?


April is National Poetry Month and since I have not posted anything for it there is no better way to get this started than to post Peh’Tehn Raighn-Kem, age 3,  reciting “Hey Black Child” by Countee Cullen on Windy City Live. This little girl is simply amazing!!!  Watch as she marches up to the microphone…

Via ABC 7 Chicago reports:

Peh’Tehn Raighn-Kem, 3, is big inspiration in a tiny package as she performs the poem “Hey Black Child” by Countee Cullen on Windy City Live.

Peh’Tehn’s parents, Lashaun and Andrea Jackson, are both educators who live in Bronzeville. Peh’Tehn can already write, and has been reading since she was 18 months old.

A video of Peh’Tehn performing “Hey Black Child” at her church has spread rapidly on Facebook, and Wednesday morning she appeared on Windy City Live with her parents to perform the poem again.


This cute little girl gave the perfect response when a little boy at school called her ugly.  She let him know in no certain terms that she came to learn and not to make a fashion statement.  Siahj Chase is just four years old and here she’s teaching a lesson that we all should embrace.  Kudos to this little girl for getting it right!!!  She’s simply adorable.
