A few years back in 2000, while sharing bread at the park on Joseph Lowery St. on the park by the Asby train station in Atlanta, GA, a young man greeted me. He took his own bread and went and sat down. While I was ready to leave, he introduced himself to me as a homeless Cameroonian. I asked him why he was homeless, and he told me. I told him, “Brother George, (his name), we are going home to my house. People like David, Keisha, Orlando, Leyland and many others who knew George very well, can testify that he was a great neighbor to them, very handy, very kind and compassionate very creative who finally became a Tax Man. No child was molested and no woman was raped! Instead, the street we shared bread together saw crime greatly reduced.
“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
