James Baldwin

When reading about James Baldwin’s life (famed author), I got goosebumps simply looking at his lifespan:  (August 2, 1924 – December 1, 1987)

Gone even before I was born…A life so fulfilling in a time of limited opportunity and resources.  A social critic, by the power of the pen, utilized his entire life to its ultimate potential.  A man not do different from you and I…the difference?

He did not take life for granted nor did he waste a single moment.

He worked in the same 24 hours time frame as us.  We’re racing to invent the latest of gadgets and resources…our failure?

We lack the knowledge of how to use them for benefit.
