“Maya sir is no different than you. Her task on the earth as a soul in human form is complete, with this trip. Now let's see if all the seeds that she has planted in her 80 plus years, will grow or falter. You too have planted seeds, and still are, so continue to plant, until the harvest. Furthermore, if no one has told you, you are a magnificent soul as well. God does not make mistakes.”

“Yes, the great Maya has been called home, more important projects to take care of on the other side, but folks don't you fret now, because she is just a thought away if you need her. Moreover, don't include her on the list with so many other greats who were given their 15 minutes of send offs at their passing, and were eventually forgotten in years to pass, but keep her spirit alive. Don't let her 80 plus years on this earth be forgotten, and placed back in some box in a deserted building in years to come that no one ever goes to, but instead take the torch that is ever so bright from Maya into your heart and pass it on, pass it on. One person at a time, pass it on. So when the time comes, for your home coming, and Maya comes to you in spirit and ask. " I noticed how upset you were about my passing, and how much you were affected by it, However, once the fan fare calmed down about my passing. "How did you keep my spirit alive on the earth, what will be your answer?”

“After we open our newest store, we will probably be looking for a location for the next one. Your suggestion is probably a good one.
That said, we like to hire customers or users of our products - we sell e-cigs and produce/sell our own flavored nicotine liquids. Our customers are all knowledgeable about our products, they believe in them, so they make the best sales people (not to mention far less training). While we have a fair number of African American customers, they're all gainfully employed.”

“This reminds me of something similar back in the 80's with a furniture rental store. None of their stores close to 30, had Blacks, nor women. So it is going to be quite interesting just, how "without merit" it really is. If you have over 200 management positions, and out of the 200 you only have one minority in it, that is with merit to me. Nonetheless, take them down if in this day and age, are in fact still practicing racism.”

“I cannot censor ones beliefs, but you cannot come into my business and express racist opinions out load. I do not tolerate N-word, or equivalent toward Hispanics or white or Asian. Nor denigration of people on Medicaid or welfare. I treat all kinds of people in my practice. If you do not want to sit in the same room with people you do not like and cannot keep your thoughts, just thoughts, go somewhere else. We have zero tolerance. The same goes for obscene language and exposed body parts. I have failed if all respectful people cannot feel welcome and respected in my practice. You get what you give.”

“Here is your problem, you have no personal concept, of what it feels to be discriminated against, maybe if you did, you would be a little compassionate toward the cause. Here is what I would want you to do, when you see your friends,co-workers, and family members use racist comments about a minority in your company, that you not condone the behavior by laughing with the person who is making the statement, and remove yourself from the person. This is how you can do your part rather than being in denial, and keeping your head in the sandbox, and pretending as if everything is ok.”
