Cindy's wisdom probably kept me out of jail.

THE UN-COMFORT ZONE :The Reward is in the Eye of the Beholder http://archive.theafronews.com/2010/01/07/1970/ http://archive.theafronews.com/2010/01/07/1970/#comments Thu, 07 Jan 2010 23:00:57 +0000 Robert Wilson http://www.theafronews.ca/?p=1970 In the early 1970s I was a young teenager who was completely caught up in the Zeitgeist. I admired the long-haired rebels and radicals who were engaged in protesting the establishment and developing the counter-culture. I didn’t really know what any of that meant, but to me it was all about empowering youth and declaring our independence from the adults.

Knowledge. We made the same discovery that led Sir Francis Bacon to make his famous quote in 1597, “Knowledge is power.” We were empowered by what we had learned, and it gave us the confidence to take a risk we would never have taken before.

THE UN-COMFORT ZONE How Cool are You? http://archive.theafronews.com/2009/11/14/1730/ http://archive.theafronews.com/2009/11/14/1730/#comments Sat, 14 Nov 2009 18:49:38 +0000 Robert Wilson http://www.theafronews.ca/?p=1730 Tony and Becky didn’t last very long, but I refused to give up those wonderful conversations and started showing up just to hang out. Over the years, I realized that whenever my own life got a little stressed, I was drawn to the Healan household. Once there I would just sit and listen to Mrs. Healan’s stories and absorb her serene energy.

Afterwards, in 1789, he was elected the first President of the United States.
