“You don't have to be famous or rich to do a good deed. No matter how small it may seem, each kind deed sends a rippling action of kindness to humanity. Whether it is donating, helping the donor to implement or ensuring the donation recipients are treated right, each one of us has a role in philanthropy.”

“Behold your nakedness as a precious stone, which not every miner is able to dig it out.”

“Being poor is neither history nor permanent but a status. Writers who begin with this sentence “X is a poorest country in the world,” to describe any African country are lacking intelligence. How would they feel if we turned the tables and used sentences that portray historical offenses committed to other countries? I bet nobody would like to read, “X is a country that killed millions of Y during Z’s regime.”

“Fear confines us to lesser choices that we can’t grow. Hope liberates us to greater heights that we can grow.”

message 1: by Terry

Terry Carter Gloria's poem "Who am I?" is as rich with metaphors of her multi-cultural experience as it is of her native African sensitivity. Her approach is simple and direct with a poignant and personal sincerity. I look forward to seeing and reading more of her writing!
