Every bit of HOPE that we may bring you…is doubled back our way and creates HOPE for us as well! You are making a difference in OUR lives just by listening to us…and we thank you from the deepest part of our hearts.

The Fight

What’s Good?

Sometimes in life we find ourselves fighting for various reasons. Sometimes its a physical thing.. drunken fist fights, Some young gym rat talked to your girl the wrong way, you talked to some giants girl the wrong way, or you flirted with a girl while on a date with your wife…etc..and then a physical fight breaks out right?

Of course it does..haha!

Now, being an Irish blooded American myself, you can imagine that I find a good fight as an ordinary thing.. but there is another kind of fight that can bring even a viking to their knees.

You vs You.

No… I don’t mean like selecting your made up fighter to fight himself on a video game. I also don’t mean as in fight club either..

Its that occasional conversation inside I’m speaking of.

That long look into a mirror that allows your soul to be reflected back to you. The honest conversation in your heart.. acknowledging and taking responsibility for the good and the bad in our nature. It is also what allows you to face your “demons” or deal with the proverbial skeletons in the closet.

Sometimes the fight we face is an exterior one. A perceived evil, an injustice, a bully, etc. However even if you are literally standing In a ring with your gloves laced up, looking across into the eyes of your opponent..inside of you is where the real fight begins.

Now… there is one last kind of fight that I would like to address..

10 Seconds..

Emotionally, spiritually, financially, physically… we all at times have, or will experience an intended Knockout Blow. Or more than one if you are anything like me. We will be flat on our backs, or laid out face first In the dirt. Our thoughts treading water, the light growing ever dim..and then you hear it..

*Distantly* “One!”

Staying down here on the ground seems real safe…


Everybody is watching…there is no shame in it.. didn’t they see that blow?


Does this guy count any faster? I just want this to be over!

As the counting continues… you make a pivotal decision. Do you stay down?

I bet if you asked any professional fighter they would tell you that in those 10 seconds they are down… the fight inside of themselves is exponentially more intense than the one taking place in the ring..


Wait a minute… my legs are coming back to me..


I’ve always got one more round left…


Get up you son of a bitch! I didn’t hear No bell!

Take it from someone who has spent a good part of his life finding reserves in those “10 Second” times…

Never quit on you… the fight is never over… you can and WILL finish the fight. It is what you were born to do.



Let The Screw Bang!

If you haven’t heard “The Difference” with Red and Lazz you are missing out on one of the best jammers on the 101 Mixtape.

Lil Red and Lazz KILL this remix to J Cole and Missy Elliot’s hit.

Press Play and DL the 101 Mixtape for free!


There’s something about Mary

If you are old, young, tall, short, black, white, Muslim, Christian, Jew, or Gentile…

I think we can all agree with Mr Red and Big Joe… that there’s just something about Mary…

Happy 4:20 4/20 four-twenty!
