Pride in the Name of Love

Happy Easter everyone and I hope all of you recently celebrating Passover enjoyed time with your family. friends and significant others. I know its late but better late than never :P. Pride is it a Value or is it Curse, should we strive for it?

This cross I found on a beach near Monterrey California. It is a replica of one put there in the 17th century by people from Spain. I’m not sure how religious all or any of you are but for those who value this holiday as a religious one I do hope that your faith was fulfilled as we celebrate this day that Christ rose. I believe in a god and his Son but I don’t believe in any religious order. I don’t find fault with those of you who do, it’s just that I don’t and am happy with that.

I had a nice ham diner cooked by one of my sisters and plenty of wine to go with the meal. I hope everyone else a nice family meal too. For the most part all of my extended family are well. Oh so thanks again for those of you who have inquired where I am, but I am home. I drove home last week and things were going fine until that rental car broke down. Two hours later the AAA triple guy noticed wires sparking, apparently a nut grounding the battery and starter decided to come off the bolt. But I am waiting to hear word on when my car will be repaired.

So the title, Pride in the Name of Love, some of you may recognize it as U2 song and one of their early ones. Early morning, April 4 Shot rings out in the Memphis sky Free at last, they took your life They could not take your pride. The song is a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King who was killed on April 4, 1968 in the city of Memphis. I have reproduced al the lyrics below for your review.

One man come in the name of love One man come and go One man come here to justify One man to overthrow In the name of love! One man in the name of love In the name of love!What more? In the name of love!One man caught on a barbed wire fence One man he resists One man washed on an empty beachOne man betrayed with a kiss In the name of love! What more in the name of love? In the name of love!What more? In the name of love!...nobody like you...there's nobody like you...Mmm...mmm...mmm...Early morning, April 4 Shot rings out in the Memphis sky Free at last, they took your life They could not take your prideIn the name of love! What more in the name of love? In the name of love! What more in the name of love? In the name of love! What more in the name of love...

Work is going ok but I will unfortunately meet another person looking to declare bankruptcy. The referral I am told is a grandmother type living on disability. She has somehow run up 25K of credit card debt. This is a favor for a friend so I won’t be getting full pay on this one. A bankruptcy will wipe out all that debt for her and she won’t have to make any further payments by the way.

SOX tie the game at 7 -7, they are playing the Yankees tonight in the opener. The Yanks jumped out to a lead of 5-2, the Sox came back to tie at 5-5. The yanks then went ahead again but Dustin just hit a two run homer to tie it up in the bottom of the Seventh. Sox just went ahead in the eighth let’s hope they hold on to this lead. For those unaware baseball season in the States has begun tonight.

Thanks for reading, take care and be safe out there my friends
