I shall never forget the incredible day that I, as one of those "Hard-Headed" women attended the Million Man March. Another woman and I motored to DC and had a hot breakfast prepared by my brother, a day of warmth and camaraderie with my brothers and nephews. My brother had also bought us all matching MM March T-shirts. I joyfully recall all those men of strong conviction who stood for hours to hear all speakers. I had brought blankets for us (women have forethought). I recall the strong arms of young men who, in a gentlemanly gesture, lifted my riding companion and me over a wall so we could venture nearer the front on the lawn to see better. It was a day of love and pride for Black men who traveled from all across the country to be there. And YES, there REALLY were a MILLION OR MORE BLACK MEN on the National Mall that day.

No child should be prevented from speaking his or her mind in a compassionate manner, and it should not cause him or her to loose a teacher. This is America where Freedom of Speech is revered. That's what we must continue to teach our children. This Fascist FOP must be brought down by the People. Only WE THE PEOPLE can demand the type of deep, widespread REVISION of LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING AND REQUIREMENTS that are so urgently needed in this nation.
The USA police kill and or frame more people than anyone in the world. European officers are never this vicious and violent. Something is wrong with the USA picture, and it must be CHANGED. Just look at the fact that the INNOCENCE Project has exonerated over 325 innocent human beings from prison -- many of whom have served over 30 or 40 years. The evil that is in Law Enforcement Mentality must be Broken. It is EQUIVALENT to any of the evil and injust that is in the minds of the True Perpetrators. Our system must become revolutionized as RESTORATIVE -- NOT PENAL. Check out how the Scandinavian countries do it. We must not only pray for TRUE justice to prevail in this country, but WORK toward that end incessantly..
