"Autum Ashante Receives a Standing Ovation at the 5th Annual United Nations Youth Assembly"

Autum Ashante' gets a standing ovation at the united nations!!!!!

5th Annual U.N.
Youth Assembly

Autum Ashante has a gift for tweaking emotion.

This time the provocative little word-smith went straight for the heart. This time she found a way to take the anguish and anger of every child that's ever been raped, abused or neglected, and drive it stake-like into the heart of anyone within earshot.

It was World Youth Day at 44th street and 1st avenue in New York. Speeches, songs and power-point presentations reaffirmed what everyone already knew. The insane arrogance of man is predisposed but in no way limited to aggression. The best of the worst are debauched.

No one spoke. No one coughed. No one sneezed. All eyes were fixed on this most unlikely little messenger. And when she was through, they stood and applauded. They cheered the little girl that had just invaded the core of their humanity and re-introduced them to the cathartic motivator we call shame. No one uttered a word for at least 3 minutes, I'm talking complete silence!!!!

If you haven't seen and heard this extraordinary Oracle, This Indigo child, a monad, a femanine representation of your Ptah Re..Allahs Love thought manifest in person, It's amazing to witness brilliance blossom.
