Public Service Annoucement - Warning

To: All Grand Theft Auto Wannabes,



A woman driving a stolen U-haul truck led law enforcement officers on a chase Wednesday that began in Antelope Valley, wound through downtown Los Angeles to Malibu, ended after a short foot chase in Oxnard about two hours later.

I hope she enjoyed the California coastline, she won't see it anytime soon.

Happy Birthday!!!!

Today would have been Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 80th birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. sacrificed his home life and his life so that we can have equality, justice, and an opportunity for a better life. He raised public consciousness about the civil rights movement and showed the world that America was not living up to its own creed, “All Men are Created Equal.” How can America preach democracy to the world and deprive its citizens their rights.

Martin Luther King, Jr. established himself as the greatest orator in United States history. King’s “I Have a Dream’ speech still send chills down my spine. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will always have a special place in my heart. I will make sure that my children will know about Dr. King and his contributions to the world, how he paved the way for us. God willing, I will be in Washington, D.C. on the day Martin Luther King, Jr.’s National Memorial is unveiled.

Thank you Dr. King for making Barack Obama's Presidency possible.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!

Love Always,

Happy New Year!

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning(Psalm 30:5).

The first day of a new year is always exciting. It represents a new beginning a chance to make a change. As I look forward to the new year, I can only hope that whatever happens I will be mentally, spiritually, physically, and financially ready to handle life's changes.

Predicting the future is impossible but preparing for life is not. There are some changes I will make this year, God willing. I plan on making the most of each day.

I hope 2009 brings you a year full of life's joy. January 1st is the start of a new year, but every morning is the start of a new day. Live for each day and not for every new year. Enjoy life!

Happy New Year!
