I haven’t posted in a few days and I don’t have much time today but… I really wanted to share this video with you.  This 7 week old baby in Ireland said hell to his mother.  Can you imagine this.  I had to look at it several times to believe it.  Tell me what you think.

NOOOOOO!… DON’T TOUCH ME!!!

This is a public service announcement… from a child.  You just gotta watch this.  It is so cute.  This little girl is letting you know that it is not okay to just touch her or pick her up because she is a little child.  You must get her permission first.  I heard that!!!  Let me know what you think about this one.

WILLIE MYRICK – PERSON OF THE YEAR –

Myrick
When I look back over the stories in the year 2014, there is one story that sticks out more than all of the rest. I initially posted this story on April 26,2014. It was the story of young 9 year old Willie Myrick of Atlanta. Myrick was apparently playing outside his southwest Atlanta home when he was kidnapped. The perpetrator threw the young man in the back seat of his car and drove off. This young man of GOD had learned the gospel song “Every Praise” by Hezekiah Walker in Sunday School and began singing the song. The kidnapper kept telling Myrick to shut up to no avail.  Myrick kept on singing.  The kidnapper obviously grew tired of the young man singing this song and  then reportedly dropped little Willie off unharmed in East Point after driving him around for three hours.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” said Willie of his ordeal. “He told me not to tell anyone.”
Willie, however, did not listen to his kidnapper’s orders and his story is moving people of faith throughout the United States.
When I think of the courage of this young man, it really inspires me. He stood in the devil’s face and sang praises to the LORD. That took a tremendous amount of courage. For that reason, I am naming Willie Myrick, studiotj’s PERSON OF THE YEAR 2014!

MISSING BOY FOUND IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

Ok, I realize that I haven’t posted in a while. As a matter of fact, it’s been a long while. When I actually saw how long a span it has been, I really couldn’t believe it. Several people have sent me things to post and I haven’t posted any of them. One story came from A. Renae and it is one that I was going to post anyway. This is old news but in all actuality, any story that you read is old news. lol
There are some sad, sick people out in this world. Some of the things that people do amaze me to absolutely no end. The bright side is that mother and child are sure to have the happiest Christmas ever Consider the following story written by:

clayton county missing
CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A boy who was reported missing about four years ago was found in a Clayton County home Friday night.

Five people were also arrested at the house in the 800 block of Duke Court in Jonesboro,

Clayton County police were first called to the home shortly before 11 p.m. to perform a welfare check. Police Sgt. K.T. Hughes said the people inside the house denied knowing anything about a possible victim. Investigators searched the home, but didn’t find anything.

The police department received another call from the home a short time later, so officers returned to the location. As they searched the house, the missing boy was able to call his mother, who then told the police her son was hidden behind a false wall, Hughes said. Investigators found the boy behind the wall.

The five suspects were charged with obstruction, false imprisonment and cruelty to children. More charges are pending. Their names have not been released.

Hughes said the victim’s mother, who lives in another state, traveled to Georgia to see her son. They were reunited Saturday morning.

MOTIVATIONAL!!!

Yes, I know I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks and I apologize to those who come here regularly. But… I’m baaaaaaack. In case you haven’t seen this video, I really wanted you to see it. I saw this about a week ago and I was amazed at the enthusiasm of this kid. He has a BIG future ahead of himself if he keeps up with this kind of positive attitude. His name is Apollos Hester from Austin High School. What do you think?

KEEP IT 100

I found the following story on theroot.com and I decided to run it in its’ entirety. This is one of those heart-warming stories and one that a lot of people should be very proud about. There’s o need for me to add more.

100 percent
From the time they enter Chicago’s Urban Prep Academies, the young men are asked to wear red ties. They may change these ties only once: after they have been admitted into college. During this year’s graduation ceremony, students who had achieved the honor were given new yellow ties with red stripes, a gesture to symbolize the hard work and dedication displayed in not only graduating from high school but also continuing to pursue education in one of the nation’s toughest cities.
For the fifth year in a row, all of the graduating students at Urban Prep Academies’ three campuses (pdf)—240, to be exact—donned new ties as the graduating class has again achieved a 100 percent acceptance rate into four-year colleges and universities.
“The tie represents, to me, moving on from a boy to becoming a young man and actually doing something with my life,” graduating senior Dumar Harris told NBC Chicago.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke at the graduation Tuesday, and NBA star and Chicago native Dwyane Wade donated $10,000 through his foundation to help pay for the prom, NBC Chicago reports.
“I got into a lot of different schools, but right now I’m thinking about four different choices,” student Keshawn Cathery told NBC Chicago.
“I got into Georgetown University, which I will be attending in the fall,” student Derrick Little said.
The 2010 class, the first to graduate from the Chicago school, is on course to graduate from college.
“Being the first graduating class, you see a lot of progression, you see a lot of downfall, but everything comes just together. If you keep striving for that one goal, no one can tell you no,” Urban Prep alumnus Paris Williams told the news station.
With its challenging curriculum, the public charter school has had some students leave the program because they weren’t able to manage it. “Urban Prep is not for everyone, and those students may leave us,” school founder and CEO Tim King told the news station. “But the fact that some students choose to leave us should not be used as a weapon against the students who have chosen to stay and have achieved this incredible accomplishment.”

CALIFORNIA TRUCK CRASH 9 DEAD

At least 9 dead as bus, truck crash in California
A.Renee sent me this horrific story that was printed by the Associated Press. What a nightmare for all involved.

ORLAND, Calif. (AP) — The long bus ride north from Los Angeles for a group of high school students who planned to visit Humboldt State University had been fun: The hours whizzed by as they watched movies, chatted up new friends, and jammed to hip-hop on the radio.
Steven Clavijo, 18, a senior at West Ranch High in Santa Clarita, was looking forward to his visit to Humboldt, where he planned to enroll. Just as Clavijo was trying to catch a nap Thursday afternoon, he said he felt the big vehicle begin to shake from left to right and then he heard a loud boom.

“We knew we were in major trouble,” he said.

A FedEx tractor-trailer had crossed a grassy freeway median and slammed into the bus. At least nine were killed in the fiery crash.

Many of the more than 40 students on board escaped through a window that someone had kicked open, Clavijo said, running for their lives to the other side of Interstate 5 before hearing an explosion and seeing the bus burst into flame.

As he jumped out of the window, Clavijo said, he dropped his glasses and scraped his knee.

Two more explosions soon followed, he said, and he and other survivors looked on knowing others were still trapped in an inferno.

Massive flames could be seen devouring both vehicles just after the crash, and clouds of smoke billowed into the sky until firefighters doused the fire, leaving behind scorched black hulks of metal. Bodies were draped in blankets inside the burned-out bus.

California Highway Patrol Officer Lacy Heitman said the driver of the tractor-trailer was among the dead. CHP dispatchers initially said the bus driver also died, but Heitman later said investigators were working to identify the eight victims on the bus, which carried between 44 and 48 students, four chaperones and the driver.
The crash happened a little after 5:30 p.m. on the interstate near Orland, a small city about 100 miles north of Sacramento.

The bus was one of two that the admissions office at Humboldt State University had chartered to bring prospective students from Southern California to tour the Arcata campus, Humboldt’s Vice President of Administrative Affairs Joyce Lopes said.

The bus was owned by Silverado Stages, a tour bus company based in San Luis Obisbo. The company said in a statement on its website Thursday night that it was assisting authorities in gathering information.

“Our top priority is making sure that the injured are being cared for,” the company said.

Humboldt State President Rollin Richmond issued a statement on the school’s website. “Our hearts go out to those who have been affected, and we are here to support them, and their families, in any way possible,” Richmond said.

The students came from a number of Southern California high schools and Humboldt spokesman Simon Chabel said the college was working to confirm where in Southern California all the were from.

Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy said an unknown number of students from Manual Arts Senior High School and Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools were on the trip. He did not know whether they were on the bus involved in the crash.

A high school senior from Alliance Renee & Meyer Luskin Academy High School in Los Angeles said she and a few of her classmates who were accepted to the university were invited to go on the tour.
Sabrina Garcia said the tour began Thursday, with buses taking students in Southern California on the ride to the campus for a three-day stay there. She said she decided to postpone the tour because she had a school project to complete.

“I was devastated when I heard about the crash, and relieved that I didn’t attend,” Garcia said. “I can’t imagine how those kids feel. You think you’re going somewhere safe with your school — and you end up in an accident.”

A CHP dispatcher says the bus and truck were on opposite sides of the freeway when the truck crossed the median and slammed into the bus, causing an explosion and fire.

Investigators say the truck driver might have been trying to avoid a passenger car that was also involved in the crash, which shut down north- and south-bound traffic on the freeway.

“There was a small white sedan in front of the truck,” Heitman said. “The FedEx vehicle did sideswipe the sedan before it crossed the median.”

No one in the car was injured.

A first responder who helped set up a triage at the scene said 36 or 37 people received injuries ranging from minor to severe burns, broken legs and noses, and head lacerations.

“The victims were teenage kids. A lot of them were freaked out. They were shocked. They still couldn’t grasp what happened,” said Jason Wyman of the Orland Volunteer Fire Department.

Nine people were taken to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, hospital spokeswoman Christina Chavira said. Two of those patients were listed in critical condition, said Denise Atkinson, an Enloe nursing supervisor.

Another five were taken to Mercy Medical Center in Redding in fair condition. One patient was admitted to the burn unit of University of California, Davis, Medical Center in critical condition.

A nursing supervisor said three people were taken to Oroville Hospital in Oroville. She declined to describe their conditions, citing patient privacy laws.

Bonnie Kourvelas, a FedEx spokeswoman, said in a statement Thursday night: “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in the tragic accident on I-5 in California. We are cooperating fully with authorities as they investigate.”

The American Red Cross set up a relief station at a Veterans Memorial Hall community center in Orland, about five miles from the crash site. Officer Joel Lynch said seven victims who were not hospitalized with injuries were staying the night with about 25 volunteers. A community member ordered pizza for the students.

KINDERGARTNER STOPPED… FROM PRAYING

Have you ever heard a child tell a story that was so real, so far-reaching, so beyond their level of comprehension that you knew that they were telling the truth? This is one of those stories. Though the administrators at this school may say that no one at their school told this little girl that she could not pray here, they lie. Sure, we may never know which adult is the guilty party here; the truth is… this little girl has no idea of the huge TRUTH that she just told. Take a look at this video and tell me whether you agree with my assessment or not. Wisdom tells me that I am on the right track.
WKMG Local 6 spoke to Michael Lawrence, the communications officer for Seminole County Schools who said, “The situation as stated by the parent has not occurred according to the school’s investigation…We’re dealing with very young children here so there’s quite a bit of an opportunity for miscommunication to occur. The timing and the issues were very odd considering that the first thing that happened was that a video was done, it was on YouTube.” The school district says the parents did not contact school officials until after posting the YouTube video, but Mr. Perez denied that claim and said he sent the district several emails before his post.

A BOILING HOT MESS…

This is the biggest mess that I’ve seen in a while. I know it’s probably not going to happen but the daughter in this case needs to be charged with this young man’s murder. It was her lies and deception that caused the incident to go down the way that it did. She is the one who snuck him into the house/bedroom. I feel so bad for both families. Can you imagine what all of them are going through at this time. Can you imagine how the father feels who felt like he was protecting his daughter. And can you even begin to imagine what the young man’s family is going through. This senseless loss of life will have a profound impact on both families for generations.

The Houston father who police say fatally shot a 17-year-old boy who was inside his daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning will likely not be charged, an area prosecutor told MyFoxHouston.com. Although a grand jury will review the case, prosecutor Warren Diepraam said it is unlikely that the father will be charged. “What was going on in the person’s mind at the time of the shooting, [not] what they found out after the fact” is key, Diepraam said. “They’re looking at what he was thinking when he made the decision to shoot.” He reportedly found the teen in bed with his daughter and confronted him. His daughter apparently told him she did not know the boy. The father said he told the teen not to move, but reportedly saw the teen reach for something, at which point police say the father opened fire. The teen did not have a gun. His daughter later confessed that she snuck her boyfriend, 17, into the house, the report said. “We don’t know if the father knew him or not,” Sgt. Ben Bell with the Harris County Sheriff’s Department, told the station. The family had just moved into the neighborhood.
