So luckily i Didn't have to work this afternoon. So i shell introduce myself to the forum.
Im 26 and was born and raised in S/W England UK, my wife is Canadian and we moved here (Canada) in 07. In the last few weeks i have received my permeant residence status here. while in my earlier year living in England a very very good friend of mine who passed away was of the rasta-fari faith and took me out of a bad place and saved me from personal destruction.
For many years he helped me and guided me. The reason for my decision on locking my hair is because the last time I saw him before he returned to Jamaica to live out his final days he told me "there is only one last thing for you too, make rasta happy, and thats to lock that hair up, for how will Jah ever lift you to the heavens with nothing to hold onto" So I honor him, and his teaches to me with this. And ultimately it has made me feel better, and has strengthened my ongoing faith and love for the eternal and never ending Jah.
On a different note, I write political papers, I love my dog my wife and 2 children. I am going to be going back to school to take a degree in political science. I am comfortable in calling myself rasta-fari even know many people may call me different. My goals in life, is to work for the UN.
