Bankers Hill in San Diego is food and drink at its best

Tucked away on the back streets of Bankers Hill Bar and Restaurant is this little gem of a bar and restaurant. The atmosphere is vibrant and fun, and is just hipster enough for everyone to fit in. The decor and ambiance are great. It's dimly lit, but not too dark, with a rustic, yet urban feel. Bankers Hill is considered one of the best date spots, fellas take note.

Are there any true leaders left in America?

By Sylvia's Thoughts

My fellow Americans, this time next year the country will be getting ready to elect, or re-elect, a president. Unfortunately it will once again be only a person with a title and position, for we ran out of leaders, of any color, in America a long time ago. You see leadership has nothing to do with position, title, influence or authority. Leadership, ladies and gentlemen, is about servanthood. A true leader has a servant’s heart. A true leader is the first one in and the last to leave. A true leader eats only after all of his people have eaten. A true leader protects and defends those he swore allegiance to; even at the risk of personal loss.A true leader is honest and has integrity whether or not it makes him unpopular. A true leader watches over those least able to help themselves; the poor, the elderly and the disabled, and does not steal from them. The absence of leaders is countrywide and across the board; not only federal government but state, county and city as well. And the biggest problem is we keep mistaking celebrities for leaders.

Remembering September Eleventh

September Eleventh
By Sylvia Van Peebles

You did not know when you awoke that you would not return,
to the ones you love whom you hold dear,
the ones you left to mourn.

It was early when the enemy struck as the planes came one by one,
and flew into those pillars of trade,
down they came, the evil deed done.

Such a senseless act not understood by anyone that day,
to bring such pain to so many,
in such a horrible way.

Fathers, mothers, children, cousins, grandparents and others,
friends and neighbors, aunts and uncles,
our sisters and our brothers.

Even now it’s still so fresh; our grief is still so great,
will I ever see a Muslim,
and not be filled with hate?

We are in a time and world when wars will never cease,
we have to learn to work together,
if we’re ever to find peace.

Remember those who died that day with love and not regret,
September eleventh is a day,
we will never forget.
