Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

I get angrier and angrier everyday when I see things like this.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

RESPECT.

I’m

25 today.

If you’d told me 10 years ago what I’d achieved by now, in terms of personal goals and things that have improved my self confidence I wouldn’t have believed you.

I remember writing in my diary a timeline of what I’d wanted at certain ages and I’ve achieved a lot of them :-) …including moving out at one point in my life, going to college then uni, to wee things like getting a tattoo!

I think I’d written down I would’ve liked to have been married at 25, but I was like 15 when I had these ideas… and love doesn’t happen when you want it to.. it just kind of jumps out of nowhere and gives you the (nicest) shock of your life.

It’s nice to have a realistic timeline for goals, but don’t worry, things happen when they should, and life is not a race.

Ahhhh

Migraine. And been waiting since 9 o’clock to get paid..as it’s payday.. ANY DAY NOW.
