BOYS WILL BE BOYS

From culture to culture, we have adopted the idea of prepping our girls/daughters for her marital home.  I for one am the product of such raring practices. My mom felt that I had to learn to cook, clean and take care of my body to become a good wife someday.   Her mother taught her the same and her mother's mother did the same.  When asked why, she said "one day all these qualities will make you a GOOD WIFE for some lucky man".   I've tried to get her to break the circle but I was told if I didn't possess these qualities, she would consider her self a failure,  so I was a "Good Child" and went along.  
                                                                           
 
Now, keep in mind I grew up the only girl in the house with two brothers, yet, my mom never mention such talks to the boys.  Wont they too need learn how to cook, clean, and care for their bodies so they too can make someone's daughter a happy wife?....NOPE.  Why not, you may ask.
                                                                              
                                                                                 
  Well, because "BOYS WILL BE BOYS".   Really? Well, now I am left with the mostly unanswered question regarding what exactly does it mean to be a boy/man.  Ninty nine percent of the time a man's role is refer back to the Bible/ Holy Book.  Adam was suppose to sweat for his meal and Eve is to cry through childbirth. Well, I for one has endure both. and I am sure about eighty percent of my fellow females  has too.  Has a man ever experienced childbirth?  I think not.  Now, have Women had to sweat for their daily bread....YES,YES,and YES.  I am sweating right now as I write this to you.  With these thoughts circulating through my head i am still left with the questions of DO I REALLY NEED A MAN, if I do, THEN WHATS IN IT FOR ME?

Please feel free to comment.

Live Simple so Others May simply live!

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

and in order to fully empower the young generation, the Liberian Entertainment Industry must be included. 

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides. 
To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
