Posted by on Sep 24, 2009 in Uncategorized, Videos | 6 comments

At 16 year old girl, Sarah Kruzan whose now 29 years old, was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole (plus 4 years) for murdering her pimp. He abused her for 3 years. She was 13 when she began prostituting for him.

Taking someone’s life in inexcusable. However, given the circumstances how is giving a 16 year old girl who was abused, raped and manipulated by this man justice? I pray that with enough press and protest he sentence can be over turned and she can be given fair sentencing.

Happy Labor Day!

labor day Happy Labor Day!

I hope you all have a very happy and safe Labor Day!

This morning I actually began thinking what does labor day really mean? I don’t remember learning about it in school and I thought it would be good to not only make a post on it but provide a little history lesson in the process. If I’m wondering about this I’m sure others are as well. What are we really celebrating?

What is Labor Day?:

The holiday originated in Canada out of labor disputes (“Nine-Hour Movement”) first in Hamilton, then in Toronto, Canada in the 1870s, which resulted in a Trade Union Act which legalized and protected union activity in 1872 in Canada. The parades held in support of the Nine-Hour Movement and the printers’ strike led to an annual celebration in Canada. In 1882, American labor leader Peter J. McGuire witnessed one of these labor festivals in Toronto. Inspired from Canadian events in Toronto, he returned to New York and organized the first American “labor day” on September 5 of the same year.[citation needed]

The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City.[1] In the aftermath of the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the US militaryUS Marshals during the 1894 Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with Labor as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.[2] Cleveland was also concerned that aligning a US labor holiday with existing international May Day celebrations would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair.[3] All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.

allingham 608 The Worlds Oldest Man Dies At Age 113!

Born June 6, 1896,  the world’s oldest man, 113-year-old World War I veteran Henry Allingham, died Saturday after spending his final years reminding Britain about the 9 million soldiers killed during the conflict.

Allingham was the last surviving original member of the Royal Air Force, which was formed in 1918. He made it a personal crusade to talk about a conflict that wiped out much of a generation. Though nearly blind, he would take the outstretched hands of visitors in both of his, gaze into the eyes of children, veterans and journalists and deliver a message he wanted them all to remember.

“I want everyone to know,” he told The Associated Press during an interview in November. “They died for us.”

Life is a beautiful thing and I often think about living life to the fullest but would you want to live this long? Idk, Just something to think about.

LIL ROUNDS BLAMES SIMON FOR THE BOOT

Posted by on Apr 29, 2009 in Uncategorized | 3 comments

If you’ve been keeping up with AI this season, then you should be fully aware of where this post is going.
lilrounds LIL ROUNDS BLAMES SIMON FOR THE BOOT
In my opinion Lil’ Rounds started out at the top of the leader boards, with the judges and fans. As the season and competition got stronger, I feel Lil started to loose some of her shine that got American on her side in the beginning. Well of course, Simon doesn’t fake the funk and he is gon’ tell it like it is. Week after week, Lil’ felt she was giving it her all but the judges were a total 360 on their opinions.

I will admit there were a couple times where I would just cry like a baby because I felt like I went out there and was giving my all and it kept getting pushed down…After they kept hammering, America started feeling like, ‘Oh, maybe they’re right?’ It started to change their opinion about me.

Well, we’ll have to see if those comments are still lingering in the air when she tries to go solo. I’m sure that’ll be the next move.
