Snippets from #furguson: “Call on Jesus…He’ll fight your battles…Call Him in the East…Call Him in the West” #repost @elonjames #prayer #healthywealthyandwise #teamjesus #godanswersprayers #actionsspeaklouder

En el #Hoy de hoy, noticias de #Furguson [English below]. Habla de las protestas en varios ciudades en los EEUU (también hizo uno en Londres). Habla de la autopsia privada de #MikeBrown (¿¡¿¡había tiros en la cabeza de el?!?! No entiendo porque la policía pueden tirar a gente por la cabeza. Haga una en la pierna o el brazo si la persona está armada pero la cabeza…como funcionario formal fuera de guerra…eso no va para mi). Y también el Secretario General de la ONU pide una resolución/contención del problema.

En today’s #Hoy, news about #Ferguson. Mentioned are the protests in various cities (there was also a protest in London). Also mentioned was the private autopsy of #MikeBrown (but there were shots to his head?!?!? I don’t get why a police officer can shoot people in the head. Shoot a leg or an arm if the person is armed but their head?!?! As a formal officer not in war…it’s not right.) Also, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon called for a resolution to the recent problems.

There is a #crowdfunding campaign started by a local school teacher and food bank to help those affected by the recent violence in #ferguson and the resulting delay in the start of the school year #actionsspeaklouder #dosomething #community
Have to say that it’s one of my favorite things about my parents…they’ve been married for 46 years…happily. The example they’ve set has helped me to not settle. And as I’ve gotten older it has helped me to get rid of the Disney fairytale image of what marriage (really a wedding) is. I still remember the convo I had a few years back with my cuz @sithtrainer (our parents got married within a few months of each other). We were talking about relationships & the decision to settle down. The sum of the conversation was we know what real love looks like and what a real relationship looks like and what real commitment looks like because that’s what our parents have lived and shown us as a result. The longer I live the more I see just how strong of a blessing that truly is….#repost @idrisbolton via @RepostWhiz app

#repost @getjetmag “Michael Jackson’s ‘Off The Wall’ is 35, today!  Released August 10, 1979. 
On August 16, 1979, nearly 21, JET interviewed the rising #KingOfPop! 
From the interview: “I always thought that Blacks, as far as artistry, were the most talented race on earth. But I went to Africa, I was even more convinced. … They got the beats and rhythm… I don’t want Blacks to ever forget that this is where we come from and where our music comes from. And if we forget, it (Black History) would really get lost. I want us to remember.” - Michael Jackson

This speech & the 10 years after is why I think Hillary should have run in ‘04. I know it was a placer race like ‘96 & ‘12, but she had a window of momentum similar to what Obama had after this speech. Obama used his window & is a two term president. Hillary gave people more time to find things wrong with her, be just an okay Secretary of State and for her husband’s presidential papers to become public…This photo & the 10 years that follow is ALSO why Obama’s relationship with Congress is a mess…the resentment that he went from boring day speech giver to Senator to President in four years. That and he hid a modern day griot of Congress for a term and a ½ *cough cough* Biden #repost @politico “The speech that made Obama president turns 10 and more headlines on today’s front page at Politico.com” #politico #womenandpolitics #momentum #politics #morningpolitico
