Rising Lion Reggae for healthcare reform!

R L believes that everyone should have health care. It is definitely a civil and moral obligation as well as a universal right. Everyone deserves the right to get medical attention if they are sick or hurt regardless of social, economic, or cultural circumstance.

Write your senators and congressmen urging them to make health care reform a reality in the US. We owe it to ourselves, our kids, and the generations that follow to take a stand now for what is right.

The present health care system is broken and littered with problems of out of control costs, lack of competition in providers, and thus lack of accessibility for millions of Americans. We need a public option to level the playing field and provide affordable options.

Rising Lion will help make that stand, will you?

Get the facts

Remember One People, One Aim, One Destiny! Roots, Rock, Reggae for healthcare reform!

The Esteemed Congresswoman Lynn Jenkin's comment about "The Great White Hope"

The comment that the junior congresswoman Lynn Jenkins from Kansas said was irresponsible, negligent, and unpatriotic to the United States for which we stand. These comments are not helpful, nor unity based to the solutions for the problems that we face in the American landscape. Such as it seems, personal convictions should have no place in American politics where by the will for the good of the American people are represented.

The Lion Rises

New Beginnings today. Lots going on, listening to Bob's Legend album mucho and fighting hard for my rights and pursuits. And I know that The Lion will be victorious in the end. Weak hearts and non- believers, and light loads move to the side, cause the Dread is heavy. Through the grace of JAH all things are possible in his time, and indeed his time approaches. One heart, One aim, One destiny.

Rising Lion doing a special acoustic set @ Rusty's Seafood and Oyster Bar on Friday August 7th. in Port Canaveral, Fla. from 6-10 pm . Good times, Good Food, and music with R L. See You there!!

Today's Meditation

What's got to be has to be. Feeling very optomistic about the future. Each day comes with it's own blessings and problems, I have learned to give thanks and praise for each and every one. For it is only through struggle and tempering that we rise to the occasion to realize our dreams and become that person who is worthy of such loftiness. Nothing in life worth having is free or easy, it is but through travail that we garner our greatest potential. So we have to be courageous and fight the good fight. " Push on Natty Dread , Jah will be there with You"

A good friend told me , "the more tempering something goes through the stronger the finished product" So The Lion will Rise up, Get Up, and Fight for my Rights. Give Thanks and Praise to the Most High. Roots, Rock, Reggae!!!!!

Steady Lion, Steady ....

Busy, busy, busy !! alot going on right now. Classic Albums Live show Bob Marley:Legend is in 4 days at The King center in Melbourne. Looking forward to this , hope to see you there. This will be a great show and an honor to perform this music. Until then practice, practice, practice.

Rising Lion will be back in the studio next week for four days at Full Sail University recording four tracks for the fourth R L cd tentatively entitled "Changes". I'm excited about these sessions , there's a lot going on in the R L world right now and in the world in general, "So Much Things To Say" through the music. Push on Natty Dread, Push on!
