Top 10 for 2014

2014

I haven’t done this in a while, but everyone loves a Top 10, so I thought I’d oblige. Personally, I’m looking forward to 2015 because 2014 has been awesome for me! For anyone who is going through a rough time, be encouraged! Know that it is only a season and it will pass.

These are the top posts, as far as you are concerned!

10. Top 10 Reasons Why 2011 Sucked – Okay…I was in a place when I penned this post…

9. Fruitvale Station – No surprise that this made it with the last five months we’ve had. I’m looking for the corner, so that we can all turn it.

8. 100 Days – Civil disobedience…I love it! Approaching his birthday, guess who else would have loved it…(hint: January 15th)

7. Spare the Rod – WHOA!!!!! I got in trouble for this one. A mother didn’t like my opinion and yelled at me… How dare I share my opinion on my blog…

6. Turkeys Are Done – This is dedicated to all my breast cancer survivors and to those who lost the battle. Together we WILL Save the Tatas!

5. Rant: Bring Back Our Girls – And they are still gone…WTF!!!

4. Family Tattoo – Y’all know how much I love POTUS and the first fam. How much more regular can you be not wanting your daughters to get tatted up!!!!

3. Orange – This one surprised me. There must be some fellow “artistics” in the house!

2. RIP Mike Brown – The jury is NOT still out on this…no indictment. Let’s see if the Feds can do any better. Either way, this makes me sad and bone tired…but, I am inspired that so many, especially the young, are showing their outrage. Let’s keep on it and make some demands.

Drum roll please!!!

And the top post of 2014….

1. New Rules for Women in Combat – I must have some service members and/or families following my blog! I am honored and thank you for your sacrifice. It makes me feel good that an older post still gets so many views. A virtual salute to you.

100 Days

17protesters-hp-master675

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency, activating the National Guard in anticipation of unrest in Ferguson. A grand jury decision is expected any day about whether Darren Wilson will be charged in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown last August. Nixon says that the National Guard will assist state and local police as needed… Protesters were out in force today despite the weather urging for an indictment.

Earlier today, I caught a clip of the Chief of Staff for the State Patrol speaking to Ferguson-area schools. He vowed that the police would not be confrontational and asked the same of the youth. I pray that’s true because I don’t think an indictment is coming. It makes me sick to my stomach, but history tells me that it won’t happen. Where do we go from there…

RIP Michael Brown

michael brown

Details remain sketchy, but here’s what we know. Michael Brown, 18, was shot and killed by a police officer in St. Louis on Saturday afternoon. He was set to leave for college TODAY.

It has been reported that Michael and the officer struggled over a gun while in the police car. One shot was fired, then several more before the officer exited the vehicle. It is unclear why they wer in the car. The officer is on administrative leave and has not been identified. The city is tense; there has been rioting and looting.

I am so tired of this same story.
