Live for Today
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther
This is how we should live life. This echos the sentiments of carpe diem, living for today. It seems to take it a step further in that regardless of knowing for a fact that tomorrow disaster will strike, a person still chooses to live today. I think that is why it is better to live in the moment and not to worry too much over the on goings of tomorrow. Of course there any many things that we plan on. We plan birthday parties, vacations, graduations, and retirements. I do not think we should stop doing those things; however, do not get so caught up at it stops you from taking action today. Do not let tomorrows worries stop you from enjoying life today. If you plant that tree (or seed) who is to know that it will not survive? In this came what will happen tomorrow may be known but because of our ability to survive and overcome adversity how we react to this is not known. The bottom line is not to give up on yourself no matter what. Live for today while not giving up on tomorrow.
Coming 2 America takes place 30 years after the first installment. Mostly set in fictitious Zamunda, Coming 2 America revisits Akeem, now a family man settled into a comfortable Kingdom life, trying to rise out of his father’s shadow. Consequently, Akeem and his trusted confidant, Semi, played by Arsenio Hall, must once again traverse the continent to Queens, only this time they are in search of Akeem’s heir, a son. As an avid fan of the first installment, I was beyond nervous to watch this one. I did not want it to ruin or taint the legacy of the first one. Of course, I was not expecting it to be better but I did not want it to be awful. After watching the second installment, I am happy to say that it did not ruin the legacy for me at all. If anything it was a nice stroll down memory lane with a few interesting detours and pit stops. The storytelling was simple and entertaining. Seeing the old cast was nostalgic and brought a smile to my face a few times. I enjoyed the pageantry of
General Hospital With Jason Morgan’s trial for the first degree murder of Lorenzo Alcazar under full swing, every one is on edge. Ric Lansing is working over time to ruin Jason and Sonny Corinthos Jr . and he does not at all care about the collateral damage. He has called Elizabeth Spencer to the stand and has backed her so far into a corner that she looks like a frightened cat. First she has to tell everyone in the courtroom that she slept with Jason while her husband, Lucky Spencer , who was oblivious to the affair watches on with a hurt expression on his face. Then Ric buries her completely by asking her if Jake Martine Spencer is actually Jason’s. Will she be able to bring herself to admit that truth? Ric is a dirty rotten slime ball that deserves to lose everything he has. He should have fallen out of grace a long time ago after the whole poisoning Liz and trapping Carly in the panic room business. Somehow, he managed to keep Elizabeth as a friend but after the trial, there i
