"LIFE" a series of unexpected events



**So I got this email, Honestly I couldn't even get through the whole thing. I don't think you can make a case of you are what wear. Or even worse who makes it. I don't know I probably gotta go back and read through it to get a better understanding. But the way I look at it they need us as much as we need them, their source of income lyes in our wallets. Now me personally am to cheap and poor to worry bout some name brand clothing. but you can afford and like it more power to you.

I do wear a name brand, because I wanna
but it's a warrior's name, called "Queen Tswana"

It don't cost nothing but a Needle & Thread
with a variety of colors, blue, green and red.

You think I'd wear somebody else name on my hip?
when I know all the foul stuff that come from their lip?

Why should I buy them a big house on the hill,
yet about us, they always talk ill.

Ain't that kinda party over here in my house,
cause all them folks names, I can do without!

I think this piece speaks well to those who are so caught up in wearing designer labels, saying that actually, all those labels mean nothing. Just do you.
