Oumou Sangare shows once again why Mali is the home of blues.

This song tells in a soul touching way the sadness that comes with lose of a loved one.

Saa Magni
O death; O death
Death is so harsh
Death is so cruel
Death who struck down Amadou Ba Guindo
But spares no creature
Nothing can stop it
Not even fame
Or having many children
Great riches and many friends
Amadou is gone
And when I go to Douentza I will not see him again
He will never be seen again in Bamako
In Douentza Tenin Ongoïna cries for you
Whilst in Bamako Amadou cries for you
As Adja' cries for you
Your widow Fanta cries for her missing husband
For Guindo has disappeared, struck down by treacherous death
In Bamako your old friend Alou Tracré misses you
How bitter is death, how bitter separation
It is hard to break the links (of friendship)
How hard it is to be separated from one's people, Guindo
But death spares no one
The Grim Reaper of hope did not spare Amadou Guindo
If it did not spare the Prophet Mohammed
Just as it struck down Amadou Chérif
Leaving his father Bouba in pain
May his soul rest in peace
How harsh is separation, how harsh death
And merciless death strikes without distinction
Villainous death crouches at a bend in the path, lying in wait for us
May God preserve us from it
But death spares no one
It strikes in the prime of life
Perfidious death crouches at a bend in the path
O death; O death
You did not spare Guindo
No creature can escape you
O death; O death, how you are cruel

The first step in making the world you want is to behave in line with that vision. Mark apparently doesn't understand that, having spent the last years creating schism after schism in the Linux desktop world, from Mir to Unity to making their own QML API from scratch and developing a mobile UX behind closed doors separate from work being done in the broader community, he is now suggesting that all the desktop projects should work together towards a common goal.

You first, Mark. You've adopted systemd, and that's a nice step ... how about the rest of the separate silo Canonical stack? Example: Get behind Wayland and you'll have automatically given all the desktop projects a common goal, since the rest of them are already there just waiting for you.

To be honest, the way I read it, what Mark really wants is everyone to use and develop for what his team has dreamed up. That would also accomplish his proposal, I suppose. It would be just like when he was trying to convince every project to adopt not just a 6 month cycle but the same 6 month cycle that Ubuntu was championing. "You change to be just like me and then we'll get along amazingly well," is a common mantra for Mark.

Disappointment does not quite start to describe my feelings about this call to arms. It's the right message, but delivered by someone who does not follow it at all.

Could anyone help me with information about this old American TV series
Been looking for it for years

“Footsteps to follow-Footsteps to make- New things to learn”(can’t remember this part) “Learning from every mistake on the way- take a step backwards and take them again”(and so on)”Footsteps,footsteps,footsteps to follow, footsteps to make-Footsteps…”That’s the Theme song for the show. It was about different families and the challenges the faced in everyday life. Each episode focused on another family. There was a family of black Americans, the rest of whites. There was a particular episode in which a black man married to his brother’s(?) ex-wife had his hands full trying to get her daughters to get along with each other. There two of them-little girls. Their names were something like Keisha and…I forget. I think the older ones name was Keisha. I’m not sure ’cause this was in the ’80s and I was still a kid.Anyway the older one disappears one day and nobody can find her. She was mad at the man ’cause it seemed he always took the younger ones side. When he finally found her, she said something like,”…I hate her”, with tears in her eyes. the man apologises to her and the whole thing ends with her singing on a stage and to music he played on the piano

So do you know the series I’m talking about yet? No? Let me try again. Let’s not forget the name of the programme was Footsteps. OK, there’s another episode in which the little girl(white) was afraid of men with beards. She was even scared of her favourite uncle at a point. He had to take off half of it before she would even go near him. Then her mom gave her a beard for her birthday and she wasn’t afraid of them anymore.One last try and I’m done. The little boy has to have an operation on his tummy. He had always complained of pains in there so his mum took him to the hospital. But she was afraid to tell him about it so she stayed away from the hospital as long as she could. but eventually goes back to the hospital ’cause her friend tells her, “It is my business ’cause you’re trying to use me to get away from your son”. she says “Oh just go to hell. You don’t understand”. On getting to the hospital her mum, whom she meets on her knees praying, tells her “Oh yes you can Marie(?). You know why, because you’ve got to”So can anyone helpme out here? Where can I find information about this old American TV series called Footsteps?

It is framed with unique landscapes and people with profound personalities. Iranians, who still have African blood in them and...
