Rest Easy

The Black Blogger Reflects On The Ring Of Life

Two brothers passed on within a week of each other, both brothers had a strong commitment to my fraternity and both were taken way too soon. So as I say goodbye to Benjamin "Ben" Phillips and Henry Casey today. It beckons me to think this thought about the old oak tree and a man's lifespan. The lifespan of man is supposed to be a single ring that encircles a grand old oak tree. Well, it seems that it has always been just a half-circular ring for our black brothers. 

Go in peace Henry and Ben and rest easy.
