“Women are The Spice of Life”: We Care for Humanity’s Tribute and empowerment Mantra for the masses.

 The Traveling Princess Maria Amor’s triumphant visit to Korea was a wake up call to women worldwide, as her message that “Women are the Spice of Life”,  established the Princess as a modern day Helen Reddy.


During the 70’s , as women fought for equal rights, none was more powerful than the chart topping songstress , Helen Reddy, whose hit; “I am woman” gave the female gender a voice and with it they shouted, Hear me Roar, I am Invincible!”. Amor travelled to Korea and told women, at a Peace conference, that not only do they have more power than they are aware of, but not only are they very valuable , but that they are also ‘The Spice of Life”———Amor’s heart touching and eye opening message is a rocker!

One of the most pervasive sentiments of all time, regardless of race, culture, creed,  or gender is that women are the very essense of life; In fact, women are regarded as the mankind’s backbone. . The late Ex-Beatle superstar, John Lennon’s 1980’s  Smash album of the year, entitled, “WOMAN”, lyrics embody that flavor by saying, ‘ Woman I can hardly express My mixed emotions at my thoughtlessness, After all I´m forever in your debt……. and thankfulness.For showing me the meaning of success….I love you, well ,well. In fact,  the late James Brown’s hit song , “It’s a Man’s world”, states, “It’s a man’s world, but it wouldn’t be nothing, NOTHING!!!—WITHOUT A WOMAN OR A GIRL!!’ . And let’s not forget The Bee Gee’s song, “Lonely days, Lonely Nights Where would I be without my woman?” Most importantly, no person walks this earth that was not born through the female’s “love canal”.

Finally, sometimes empowerment starts with the way one thinks of oneself. If one is afflicted with self abdication, one has never traveled to  a place within that bolsters self confidence or strength. The Princess seeks to galvanize through motivation, and a guru styled modality—self help——She seeks to remove the chains and anchors from society’s seemingly subtle devaluation mind control symbols that run rampant in movies, books, cartoons, and the media’s depiction of females as weak and passive. Women are indeed the spice of life and just remembering, if Amor has anything to do with it, to roar, “I am Woman, ” as Helen Reddy taught them so many moons ago.

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
