I will deal with this story and issue soon. In the meantime, I wanted to post this video from Washington Watch, as it knocks down all the stereotypes that I’m sure people are looking for. Many times people will say, “Well, I’m sure something happened to make that guy act that way” or “Maybe the kid was threatening to the man”.
What saddens me the most is that my son and I were just visiting the Orlando area exactly one month ago. I gave him more freedom while we were away than I normally would at home since his other siblings were not there. My heart rate increases when I ponder on the “what-ifs” like, “What if neighborhood watch would have been following him when he was making the one-mile walk to his cousin’s house?” “What if something would have happened when he was out playing football and on his way home just before dark?”
I think I would be thinking just like Trayvon Martin’s dad said in the above video, he would have been waiting on me to protect him, and I would not have been there.
My mentor Dr. Lyn Lewis used to say something to the affect that black men grow up knowing that they are one step from jail or dead, no matter who they are or what they do in life.
I’ll echo another saying she’d say, that’s some good Sociology right there, because this Trayvon Martin murder proves her point. Good kid, good parents, smart, athlete, but still dead like a L.A. gang member.
Lets keep the heat on this story before it gets swept away by more important things like what the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing or what Peyton Manning is doing.
- Why is the issue of the Trinity so controversial in today’s church?
- What is the definition of the Trinity?
- The Bible doesn’t have the word “trinity” in it, so where in scripture do people get this concept or are they just making it up?
Church history shows us that people who denied the Doctrine of the Trinity were considered heretics. Is this you? Are you a Christian that considers the Doctrine of the Trinity irrelevant? If so, perhaps you should examine yourself to see if you really in the faith.

I’ve taken numerous shots of Motown, so I really dig sites like this that show the historic value of many of the buildings and factories.
I stumbled upon this site (http://detroiturbex.com/content/industry/packard/index.html) that shows the old Packard plant and some other historic sites in “The D.”.
So pull the kids on the lap Dad, and take a walk through history!

Just to let my subscribers know, the post by Jay Smooove went out about 10 times from some strange reason. WordPress created new way of creating new posts and it seems that every time the draft was saved, a new post was created.
I’m not sure if the problem has been resolved, but I’m posting the old fashion way again and things seem to be working well.
So sorry for what seemed like spam, but hopefully everything is fixed on the WordPress end.
