PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL HELP HOMEOWNERS AND STUDENTS

President Obama is not sitting idly by, as lawmakers continue to put brakes on his job bill. The 44th President is moving quickly to help homeowners who owe more than their homes are worth. I must say it’s things like this that makes me appreciate the President the most. Read the rest of this entry »

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: ALL US TROOPS TO LEAVE IRAQ IN 2011

President Obama is keeping his promise to end the war in Iraq. I’m so happy to hear this. The only thing now I’m praying about is the fact that his job bill is continually shot down, and with the troops coming home, what will they do? How will they become acclimated to their homes, and fall back into place with possibly no jobs. I know some companies keep job available for those in the military, but that’s only a few. Nonetheless, I’m still glad that this is finally happening. Read the rest of this entry »

A Letter From Troy Davis

20110921-114155.jpg

Troy Davis will forever be etched in my memory. Over the past week, there has been so much to come out about the case of Davis vs State of Georgia. Tonight the “earthly” battle is over as Troy was executed tonight at 11:08pm! The only question I’m asking is how does being convicted on the testimony of 9 “eye witness,” cannot be overturned when 7 of the 9 witness recanted there statements?! I just don’t understand.

I do sympathize however with the McPhail family for the loss they incurred, but don’t ever desire closure, at the expense of the life of a person who could very well have been innocent. I know that in there hearts questions are coming up.

Here is the letter Troy Davis wrote to all his supporters!
To All:

I want to thank all of you for your efforts and dedication to Human Rights and Human Kindness, in the past year I have experienced such emotion, joy, sadness and never ending faith. It is because of all of you that I am alive today, as I look at my sister Martina I am marveled by the love she has for me and of course I worry about her and her health, but as she tells me she is the eldest and she will not back down from this fight to save my life and prove to the world that I am innocent of this terrible crime.

As I look at my mail from across the globe, from places I have never ever dreamed I would know about and people speaking languages and expressing cultures and religions I could only hope to one day see first hand. I am humbled by the emotion that fills my heart with overwhelming, overflowing Joy. I can’t even explain the insurgence of emotion I feel when I try to express the strength I draw from you all, it compounds my faith and it shows me yet again that this is not a case about the death penalty, this is not a case about Troy Davis, this is a case about Justice and the Human Spirit to see Justice prevail.

I cannot answer all of your letters but I do read them all, I cannot see you all but I can imagine your faces, I cannot hear you speak but your letters take me to the far reaches of the world, I cannot touch you physically but I feel your warmth everyday I exist.

So Thank you and remember I am in a place where execution can only destroy your physical form but because of my faith in God, my family and all of you I have been spiritually free for some time and no matter what happens in the days, weeks to come, this Movement to end the death penalty, to seek true justice, to expose a system that fails to protect the innocent must be accelerated. There are so many more Troy Davis’. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country.

I can’t wait to Stand with you, no matter if that is in physical or spiritual form, I will one day be announcing,
” I AM TROY DAVIS, and I AM FREE!”

Never Stop Fighting for Justice and We will Win!

Troy was found guilty of murdering a police officer 19 years ago, based upon the testimony of 9 witnesses. Today, 7 of those 9 have recanted their testimony entirely, and there are enormous problems with the testimony of the remaining 2 witness accounts. There is NO OTHER EVIDENCE. The murder weapon was never found. There is no DNA to test. Troy died by lethal injection tonight!

President Obama took to the podium on the White House steps today to speak on how we can approach our Nation’s Deficit. He also made sure to let it be known, that Washington also has to “sacrifice” during this time. It can’t just be the poor and middle class, but also to wealthy.

Warren Buffet secretary should not pay higher tax rates than Warren Buffet.

IN LOVING MEMORY FOR ALL OF THOSE AFFECTED BY 9/11 TRAGEDY

It’s been 10yrs. since one of the most horrific tragedy’s this country has faced in recent times. The terror attack against the U.S. left this country confused, afraid, and seemingly helpless at times. But what I was most impressed with during this time, was it left us TOGETHER. People were more connected, understanding, and loving each other. Our faith was tested, and we all grew together, only to be torn apart again. When these type of things take place, people tend to band together for the common good, but I need to know what can help us stand together no matter what?
For all of those who lost someone during this event, I pray that God will send the COMFORTER, THE HOLY SPIRIT, to give you a renewed strength, and a love for your fellow man, like you have never had before. Also that your testimony will change the lives of all that will listen. No matter what, as Americans we must not allow anything to separate us. A country divided is easily defeated.

Thank you to all the heroes that showed up on this day! And thank God, that what the “enemy” thought would DESTROY US, only made us stronger.
