“BA Everywhere is endurance, perseverance and equality. This about justice and equality—it is direction on how to.”

From a Minister in Chicago
“I’m an ordained minister but my life style consisted of me being a drug addict—one of the worst kind. There wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do to feed my addiction. Now that my life has been changed there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to keep straight. BA is a part of my life and that is one of the things that keeps me strong—keeps me on the right path of righteousness. I believe in God first. God is my Father and I surrender my life over to him. BA is second and I surrender my life over to BA to get our world back into the righteous place where it needs to be.
BA Everywhere is endurance, perseverance and equality. This about justice and equality—it is direction on how to.
People want to stand together, but when you look out someone has fallen out the tree.
Meeting BA was overwhelming—the leader had to show a good example. It took laziness out of the program. With his mind set if you throw it at him, he catch it and give it to you in the raw.
BA should be shielded at all times. If it came down to someone trying to shoot I guess I’d have to take that bullet for him because I don’t want his ideas to die—I want his ideas to live on and for him to be able to make plans and preparations for us to be able to go forward.
This is an analogy that I have found helpful: Reality is like a fire, like a burning object, and if you want to pick up that burning object and move it, you have to have an instrument with which to do it. If you try to do it bare handed, the result is not going to be good. That’s another way at getting at the role of theory in relation to the larger world that needs to be transformed, in relation to practice, and in particular revolutionary practice, to change the world.
BA is like a fiery burning bush—getting this system torn down and then replaced in the way it should be—he is the man.”
