The Sunrise Brings a New World

The Sunrise Brings a New World
Another bed, another Hotel Room, I am here in Indianapolis, Indiana, waiting for the sun to rise. I have jet lag, it is 4:14 am, however my mind still believes it is Thailand where the time is 4:14 pm in the afternoon.

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA, and it is a new day on the other side of the planet.

I will spend today with the majority of my family, truly a reunion of my family and one of the great American experiences.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful corny American holiday, the part of the USA culture I wish I could wrap up and have delivered to the rest of the planet. Indiana, the state where I was born, in a small farm village, in a place where everybody says hello, where I hear please and thank you, and excuse me, it is truly a great place on planet earth.

We have a special Holiday, there is a new baby, his name is Xander and he is a Black Boy, we are a White Family. My nephew and his wife adopted a baby, he is seven months and all conversations revolve around Xander. This is a good thing, my mother said,
“Xander can always say, he was born in the same year that Obama became the first Black President.”

The sun will rise soon, there will be a new day, all old memories will fade, and today will be replaced by new ones, there will be simplicity restored to the day. I try to enjoy my life, however for a traveler, this is not about traveling to paradise, and it is know I can take paradise with me as my constant travel companion.

Is that video real or a spoof ?

Hi Mr. Andy,
You made me a believer, when I get my turtle shell up and on the road..Im tipping my Atlanta Braves cap to Indiana on the highway. Ill swear ever loving allegiance if they have a Waffle House serving cheese gritz,country fried ham,red-eyed gravy, and toast to sop it up with.
I wont make too much of a comment about your kin adopting a black baby boy. I will admit I raised it with several black co-workers ages 40 something to over 60.
Im from Georgia, Ive grown up with them, played, worked and worshipped with them. (For some reason most yankees forget where majority of blacks in this country live and WORK)..Their first question...what the hell?? Another..bleep Brad Pitt? Second question...Will he be Baptist...hehe.
I raised two of the best step-sons in the world..God only knows how many times I thanked him for those boys.
I dont know what motivated your kin to adopt outside the breed I surely pray it wastn a novelty thing.
If they cave into black big city sub-culture crap..Il save time and come kick their butts now. I even know a couple of black granddaddies that might come with me. Collard greens in hand of course... in about 9 months.
Bottom line..they damn well better find an identity for that boy that doesnt include being a black boy. Any fool that talks about learning HIS culture should be shot.

I think that video is fake because you can see the bullets which is impossible without a high speed film and lens
