Today’s been a day of both mourning and celebration of life. Today was a journey for many who had to say their final goodbyes to a son, a brother, a fiancee, a friend….
Today I held a new born named Noah, who is just days old. I watched and admired him. I prayed for him and I watched him knowing that he has his whole life ahead of him.
Life is crazy. A soul is lost and another one is born. The emotions we go through as humans in a matter of hours is crazy. For one family it’s a weekend of sadness that ended years of pain. I’m so sorry to them for the loss of a vibrant young man who succumbed to illness at the tender age of 26. RIP Shaun Fazal aka DJ 2 Touch #DJ2Touch. Albeit I didn’t know him personally, however, from what I did know he was a vibrant young man. He stood out from others because he was serious about life, love, family and friends. He was laid to rest today and in the clouds, as mourners said their final goodbyes, he showed his love in the shape of a heart. This makes me sad because he was so young; a year younger than my nephew. When God calls, he calls. This talented young man is now an Angel among us. I wish this wasn’t the case.
For another family it’s been a celebration of the birth of a son; a growing family that will only keep growing. I’m a Hindu and I truly believe in reincarnation. This beautiful little boy was in my arms and I looked and prayed that God watch over him and give him a full life of happiness.

I was sadden yesterday by all affected by the passing of Shaun that I felt the urge to write. Life is so funny. We spend so much time being angry, holding grudges and talking shit that it makes me think….what is it all really for? I too struggle with these feelings, but I can’t lay all the blame on me. I share that amongst others. One person can try to change, but it truly takes a collective to make things better.
Take a pause people and re-evaluate what we’ve been doing to each other? Is it really worth it?
Death is inevitable I get it. But I will always hate it. We have to live and move on. All the mourners go home, but a family is left to cope with those feelings forever. We all go through it.
On the other hand, we deal with the creation of new life and the joy that surrounds that special time. It seems so unfair to be happy and sad all at the same time. But that’s life. We that remain on this earth need to live our lives to the fullest; the way we want; and we need to be as happy as we can be. Not forgetting that you don’t need to step on others to get there.
Sigh….that’s my rant for now.
One Love Yall,
