Wonderful World Beautiful People
by
Jimmy Cliff
Greetings...  

May God be with You and I at this time.   The names below represent those that had an impact
on my life.  Some I know personally; but  most, from a distance.  At some time in my life our
paths crossed and I felt honored to experience a piece of your life recorded for posterity.  It is
not meant as any disrespect to categorize names under a specific  heading; when we know that
all, and many more, have contributed across these and many more areas.  However, this is just
a small way of affirming contributions special to me... Bless!
Michael.
 
"Star"
A heavenly body, considered as influencing humankind and events.
UCI ~ I See You
Father, I humbly ask that you bless me, along with my
Brothers and Sisters and all we touch from time to time:
Brothers and Sisters who gave their life in passage;
Brothers and Sister who taught, teach, and will teach, like those before this day;
Brothers and Sisters in man-made chambers of confinement;
The Children coming in Your name; Emperor Haile Selassie I, and the many others whose names belong upon these
pages…

As these words are according to Your will Almighty Father, I ask that You bless each of us as we become a breath in the
Book of Life. ~ Malchijah
