We Lost Robert Kennedy 45 Years Ago Today

My dear friends in September of 1996, I got thrown out of a room that I was renting. My wages were so low that I could not afford rent. I had to go and sleep on the streets for two nights. I found myself in a park in downtown San Jose. What caught my attention was a statue of Robert F. Kennedy. I slept next to the statue for two nights. It gave me great comfort in those awful and cold moments.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
