My Aunt was the first person to introduce me to the term Biracial. She is who told me that I was Biracial. I must have been no more than 8 years old. I was watching a movie and there was a girl that had similar features as me. My Aunt told me that the girl was “Biracial– Just like me”.

Race in my family was never an issue. We are all different colors, races, and shades. Without it being distinguished; it all made sense to me that my father was white and my mother was black.

When were you introduced to the word “Biracial”? How did your parents or family explain your race to you?

After nearly a decade of hiding, Osama Ben Laden has finally been captured and executed.

As I was cuddled up on the couch before bed; watching the Donald Trump’s: the Aprentice. (BTW, if you know who was voted off; please comment below.) [Hopefully Starr Jones gets fired…haha]

An emergency caption messaged scrolled across the bottom of my television. It was stated to stay tuned for an important message from President Barrack Obama.

For President Obama to make an urgent speech at 10:00/11:00 p.m. on a Sunday night, red flags were raised. Something tragic had to have occurred. Indeed noteworthy news and confirmation was released to American’s by President Barrack Obama that Osama Bin Laden had been found and executed by U.S. officials.

Truthfully, my mind was far from focused on Osama Bin Laden. I would have never guessed that we would be recieving that kind of news after nearly a decade.

President Obama brought it to citizens attention that this execution plan was in progress for eight months before action was decided to take place. Timing was everything and Obama waited for substantial information proving high chances of Osama Bin Ladens hide-away in the Mansion Compound.

After nine years, we all were lead to believe that Osama Bin Laden was hidden away in a cave in the mountains. Bin Laden was were we least expected him to be, in a million dollar mansion.

The members of Al Qaeda stationed themselves in the Mansion which had two secruity gates, eighteen foot walls with security; guarding their “FBI Most Wanted” leader. The waste that came from the house was burned, insuring that no evidence could be traced and obtained by U.S. spies and officials. Children were sent out to bring food back to the compound. The mansion had no internet, phone, or cable connected which was suspicious to officials.

The U.S. Navy Seals raided the compound and the mission lasted about 45 minutes. Osama Bin Laden tried shielding himself with a woman. Bin Laden had bodyguards and he ordered them to shoot him before the U.S. officials could capture him or kill him.

The Navy Seals were ordered to capture Osama Bin Laden, dead or alive. Osama and his followers put up a fight. Bin Laden was shot twice in the head; he was executed.

U.S. Officials took custody of his body in order to confirm with DNA that it was Osama Bin Laden. (it was confirmed) Shortly after confirmation, officials honored his muslim religion, buring him at sea within 24 hours.

Even though Osama Bin Laden has been executed, we still have a long way to go. The only way we can put an end to the “War on Terror” is to wipe out all of Al Qaeda Nation.

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey was truly blessed on April 30th, 2011 giving birth to twins; a baby girl and boy on their wedding anniversary. The names of the twins have yet to be announced.

As you all know I am a huge fan of Mariah Carey. I admire the privacy that she keeps from the media and social light. I wish her and Nick Cannon blessings from above on their marriage and new family.

The Carey-Cannon family will forever remain in my prayers. (:
