Greetings On-Line Family

I am so horrified and my heart aches at the unbelievable sights of Haiti.  As we all know a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti some days ago.   As I watch in disbelief the devastating footage and listen to the reports, it is clear that thousands and thousands of people lost their lives in this tragedy.  Actually, I am convinced now that the death toll may be way up in the 100s of thousands.  What a nightmare, so many are missing, so many are buried under the rubble (alive and dead), so many are severely injured and so many are dead and just laying in the streets!  Dear Lord…why so much pain and suffering...the cries and tears are heart wrenching and unbearable!!!

My gosh, Haiti…strong Haiti, an independent nation and first black-governed republic in the Western Hemisphere. Achieving this status due to the most successful revolting of slaves in history “The Haitian Slave Rebellion” back in the year 1791.  Such an important nation “Haiti” has been in the history of slavery, and even in the history of some of America’s significant events.  Yes indeed, as a result of The Haitian slave revolt/The Haitian Revolution the United States history was impacted greatly with the famous “Louisiana Purchase” where the U.S. purchased Louisiana territories - 13 states west of the Mississippi including Louisiana from France for 15 million - which is approximately 3 cents an acre.)  Actually, it even impacted the Civil War.  The history books indicate that Haiti has been a great nation for hundreds of years, and not what we were led to believe. 

 

Throughout time though, Haiti has been really undergoing a lot of changes with the crazy dictators that have ruled the nation, resulting moreover of Haiti becoming the poorest county in the Western Hemisphere. Undoubtedly, the Haitian people have endured a lot of hardships, and as we see today they are still unfortunately enduring disaster after disaster.  Just in 2008 when treacherous Hurricanes/storms Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike slammed into Haiti we cried with the Haitians for their loss, and did all we could to help.  Even though we knew it would take a long while for them to recover from these storms, we never imagined another disaster would practically trample on them and make their lives even more difficult.  This 30 second 7.0 earthquake that rocked Haiti on January 12, 2010 is the most devastating catastrophe in this Hemisphere, and one we will never forget. 

 

Personally, Todd (My husband) and I know first hand the fear one feels during and after an earthquake, and it’s truly  “No Joke”.  The fear is unbelievable, and witnessing strong stone buildings cracked and many toppling down like they were Lego toys blew both our minds.  The building we were living in had lots of damage, so Todd and I packed up and left lovely Southern California after experiencing two earthquakes back in the late 80’s.  The experience was incredible!

 

Our heart goes out to the families who are ill with worry about their missing loved ones in Haiti.  I worry everyday about my family in Trinidad, and I know if any disaster such as this would ever occur there, I would be distraught.  This is way too much for anyone to handle, and it is so very sad!   We pray that the large equipment arrives soon in order for the roads to be cleared from the debris, as well as for the ones who are berried alive under the rubble are rescued.  We pray that water, food and medical supplies reach the Haitian people very soon.  It’s certainly going to be a long difficult road, but we pray that rescue and recovery is done swiftly and safely.

 

Of course, many of you are donating towards the rescue efforts and we urge you to continue with your support.  It's understandable that several of you are skeptical about donating monetarily, because in the past the donations you made to certain causes never reached those who really needed it.  However, we must do our research to make sure the organizations we donate to are reputable.  Keep in mind that you can donate $5.00 via texting to Superstar Rapper Wyclef Jean’s organization “YELE HAITI.  Wyclef (formally of the popular hip hop group/The Refugee Camp (The Fugees),) has been a big advocate for his home (Haiti) for a number of years, and has done a significant amount  of work to bring the troubles of Haiti to the world.  Actually, he is very passionate about his humanitarian works in Haiti, so obviously he cares about his people.  Therefore, we feel the monies will reach THE PEOPLE through Wyclef’s organization and will benefit THE PEOPLE, and not the dysfunctional and corrupt Government.  We urge you to go ahead and donate $5.00 by texting “YELE” to 501501.  From what we understand Wyclef rushed to Haiti immediately after the quake and is somewhere on the ground performing his own rescue efforts.  We pray he is kept safe!  Additionally, you can also donate $10.00 to the Red Cross by texting “HAITI” to 9-0-9-9-9.  For all the details check www.redcross.org.

 

I understand many major US Corporations have donated large sums of money (millions) to this effort, and it’s such a good thing.  It’s been reported that approximately 137 million have already been donated by these corporations, and that’s fantastic.  I guess we all have to do our part now to help, even if it’s a little - we must help our neighbors of the Caribbean Island Haiti.

 

As I close my comments on Haiti, I must ask: Can you believe with all this tragedy that the racists have reared their ugly heads with the nasty statements they have made?  It is so appalling, truly these idiots really need to be removed from the public airways because they are inciting bad-mindedness.  Check out what Evangelist Pat Robinson had to say by clicking the 1st picture below (courtesy of media matters), and click the 2nd picture which will navigate you to "Countdown with Keith Olbermann".  Here Mr. Olbermann responds to Robertson's accusations and Limbaugh's negative statements.

 

                   

 

Some of the local organizations have sent us information on what they will be doing to help with the relief efforts of Haiti.  Click here for their details.

 

!!!GOD BLESS HAITI!!! 

 

 

 

The time is here to celebrate the life, works and dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Certainly, it is a time to remember all Dr. King preached about (the injustices and the messages of change through nonviolence); and fought for (freedom, equality, and dignity for all races and peoples.)  We have surly come a long way in these 42  years after losing Dr. King, and we are living the dream.  Especially with the election of our first African-American President.  This is a major step in realizing the total dream.  Throughout these 42 years we accomplished so much, but as you see the road is still very difficult.  Having to endure race based comments constantly is infuriating, but it’s up to us to pick ourselves up and follow the dream and be all that we should be.   Dr. King said "We must work unceasingly to uplift this nation that we love to a higher destiny, to a higher plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humanness"  This we must follow.  On January 18, 2010, we all must "Remember Dr. King! Celebrate Dr. King ! Act on Dr. King's Messages! - A Day On, Not A Day Off!!!  Read some of Dr. King's famous quotes below.  

1) "I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant"  

2) "Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true."

3) "Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.  Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.  Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it"

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

1929 - 1968

U.S. Black Civil Rights Leader and Clergyman

4) "We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."

 

5) "The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood."

6) "There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love".

From MLK's Letter while in Birmingham Jail 4/16/63

7) "The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows."

Condolences to the family and friends of 2 very important people we lost recently. One was in the Entertainment industry and the other was a gentleman Todd admired greatly, and who was a media mogul,  civil rights attorney and a political power broker.

 

 

Sensational Sexy Soul and R&B singer Teddy Pendergrass died on Wednesday (1/13/2010) at age 59 from colon cancer. Teddy was known for his hit singles "Close The Door", "I Don't Love You Anymore", Turn Off The lights", and "The More I Get The More I Want", plus much more.   He became a symbol of courage when he came back from a devastating car accident in 1982 that left him paralyzed.  Teddy's son Teddy Pendergrass, II said his father was going through “a difficult recovery” from colon cancer surgery eight months ago.

“To all his fans who loved his music, thank you,” his son said. “He will live on through his music.”

Pendergrass's career began when he was a drummer for The Cadillacs, which soon merged with Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. Melvin invited Pendergrass to become the lead singer after he jumped from the rear of a stage and started singing his heart out. Months later the group signed with Gamble & Huff on the then CBS subsidiary Philadelphia International Records in 1972.  The Blue Notes had hits such as "I Miss You," "Bad Luck," "Wake Up Everybody," the two million seller "If You Don't Know Me By Now" and many more. Following personality conflicts between Pendergrass and Melvin, Pendergrass launched a solo career and released several hit singles.

 

PersySutton.jpg (21668 bytes)Percy Sutton the pioneering civil rights attorney who represented Malcolm X before launching successful careers as a political power broker and media mogul, died at age 89 in late December 2009.  Mr. Sutton, the son of a former slave became a fixture on 125th Street in Harlem after moving to New York City following his service with the famed Tuskegee Airmen in World War II.  His Harlem law office was founded in 1953 and he represented Malcolm X and the slain activist's family for decades. Mr. Sutton a consummate politician served in the New York City Assembly before taking over as Manhattan borough president in 1966, becoming the highest-ranking black elected official in the state.  Mr. Sutton also mounted unsuccessful campaigns for the U.S. Senate and mayor of New York, and served as political mentor for the Rev. Jesse Jackson's two presidential races.  

 

Mr. Sutton along with his  brother in 1971 purchased WLIB-AM radio, making it the first black-owned radio station in New York City. His Inner City Broadcasting Corp. eventually picked up WBLS-FM, which reigned for years as New York's top-rated radio station, before buying stations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit and San Antonio between 1978-85.  In addition to his radio holdings, Mr. Sutton also headed a group that owned The Amsterdam News, the second largest black weekly newspaper in the country. The paper was later sold.  Mr. Sutton's devotion to Harlem and its people was evident when he spent $250,000 to purchase the shuttered Apollo Theater  in 1981 and renovated the famed Theater. The Apollo turned 70 in 2004, a milestone that was unthinkable until Mr. Sutton stepped in to save the landmark. "He was a great man" is how many described him!

President Obama called  Mr. Sutton:  "a true hero" to African-Americans across the country.  "His life-long dedication to the fight for civil rights and his career as an entrepreneur and public servant made the rise of countless young African-Americans possible."
