Here we are on distant shores

Searching for love ones lost

Knowing their pain and suffering

Was an ocean of love lost.

Cant you see the sun is shining

Bringing energies of love all

Come my people unite together

Wake up stand up be the love for all

The bells are ringing it is time

To answer the call of one

Get together my brothers and sisters

It’s time you must unite as one

Unite Unite it’s time it’s time

You must unite as one

Hold together brothers and sisters

It’s time to unite as one.

This would make interns one whole third of Dropbox’s entire engineering team.   Bump Technologies, maker of the popular bump-to-share-your-contact-info app, plans to hire ten interns this coming summer.

SLIDESHOW – ‘The Iron Lady’ has nothing on these brave black women. While Meryl Streep is making headlines for her new role in this biopic…   The Iron Lady has nothing on these brave black women. While Meryl Streep is making headlines for her new role in this biopic about former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, women of African descent have a long history of expressing the steely resolve that made her famous.   Black female leaders have led slaves to freedom and faced bullets in the pursuit of justice, long exhibiting the tough qualities that made Margaret Thatcher great. As the world celebrates Thatcher with the release of the Iron Lady movie, let us also remember these “iron ladies” of African descent. Their powerful resolve and quiet austerity have significantly advanced the black community throughout our history.
