My grandmother passed yesterday. We were extremely close. She had a huge part in who I am as a person. I’m grateful to God for the strength & comfort He’s granting me right as this is the hardest thing I’ve ever faced (and I’ve faced ALOT). Pls keep me in your prayers & thoughts.
God bless your soul, sir!
Thanks for the memories, Grandpa 🙏
Remember this elderly man who loves to prepare enormous amounts of food for those in need? He passed away last Sunday.

Wow. From Rep. Elijah Cummings' first floor speech: "I only have a minute, only sixty seconds in it... Just a tiny little minute, But eternity is in it." 4/25/96 #RIPElijahCummings
"I realized that with African American people, where we've been blocked from being all that God meant for us to be, I don't have time to be patient."
Elijah Cummings died today at the age of 68, at Johns Hopkins Hospital
Rest in Power, Hero

Sad that we have to share this, but @MeritLaw and I have long since learned that police departments and DA's will destroy the character of their victims if you let them.
Atatiana Jefferson was a kind, brilliant soul.
I'm at the point where I cannot say, in good faith, that when you kill our mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters that "justice" for us is you spending a few years in prison.
That shit's not justice.
Justice would be Botham Jean alive.
Atatiana Jefferson ALIVE.
The family of Atatiana Jefferson sent us some additional pictures of her tonight.
She was a star in her family.
College grad, caregiver, and a kind generous soul.
Not playing respectability politics, but she meant everything to them.
UNACCEPTABLE! The acts of yet another “trained” police officer have resulted in the death of #AtatianaJefferson. Gun downed in her own home. If we are not safe to call the police, if we are not safe in our homes, where can we find peace? We demand answers. We demand justice.

Wow...what a selfless moment. God bless you #BrandtJean for demonstrating mercy. ✝️ #LukeChapterSixVersesThirtySixAndThirtySeven
What a moment in the courtroom, just now. Botham Jean's brother Brandt took the opportunity to forgive Amber Guyger, tell her to devote her life to Christ, and then asked the judge if he could give Guyger a hug.
The judge, wiping tears from her eyes, allowed the moment to happen
#Forgiveness #Powerful ✝️
In his victim impact statement, Botham’s brother Brandt offered forgiveness, citing his Christian faith. He then asked if he could hug Guyger.
In a surprising moment, the judge agreed and the two embraced, as sobs rang out in the room.
Rest In Peace #LouieRankin! The legend of Ox lives on!
Rest In Peace Jessye Norman! A life well-lived! God bless your soul.
