  1. Barring Covid-19, this is a wake-up call for all peoples, youth and children need to seek information and be protected at all times. That is not to say that it is or will be easy to quell anger and rage from the hurt and loss of children, youth, adults and elders. Who will take care that they are safe? It must be us, the people who brought us into the world to LIVE… not to DIE! We’ve been ready to take on the challenges of protecting our families in spite of the odds. I felt so lost and ashamed of our people who continue propping up the state of tirade, even our own relations. President Obama lead the charge of CHANGE and given us the courage to stand up for all… the innocent, the victim and the people who have been just “left out” in the larger conversation. I shall never forget the role he played in bringing us back, all together. With our families, friends and relations we can WIN again! Om Shantih (Peace Vibrations)
