“When the comedian stops making people laugh we should start to think” - Paul Brown, III

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. - Frank Herbert.

Dr. Mumir Parham is an amazing psychologist. Please contact him via e-mail Mparham76@gmail.com. After this conversation I now understand we are all sick! It’s ok to ask for help. Asking for help doesn’t make you weak. It’s ok to ask questions, and its not rude or disrespectful to do so. It’s our duty to ask questions when law enforcement/government doesn’t service your community/nation properly.

Nonprofits Can Use “Request For Proposals” to Find Grants

“RFPs are published so that organizations that might be qualified to participate can apply. They are invitations. That makes them particularly valuable for nonprofit organizations. It means that the foundation or government agency is ready to go forward with funding a particular issue. If you have a program in the works or even an established one that you still need to fund fully, an RFP can be a godsend.” - Joanne Fritz. https://www.thebalancesmb.com/the-basics-of-rfps-requests-for-proposals-2502484

What is Justice? The unclouded eye was better, no matter what it saw — Frank Herbert

Why does it cost $42,727.00 to house one inmate per year in state prison? Why is the prison system for profit? Why doesn’t the state collectively pay for trade programs for public schools and affordable community college programs? Could this approach save taxpayers dollars? Could this approach reduce the prison population in the state of Pennsylvania? https://www.vera.org/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=brand&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxfzvBRCZARIsAGA7YMy1dVMANWnIoRjeSJbxYWRMiQlE7PkdjhVbPn-Ta1ydJle7Sh4pBbYaAhoUEALw_wcB

Public investment in K-12 schools — crucial for communities to thrive and the U.S. economy to offer broad opportunity — has declined dramatically in a number of states over the last decade. Worse, some of the deepest-cutting states have also cut income tax rates, weakening their main revenue source for supporting schools. https://www.cbpp.org/research/state-budget-and-tax/a-punishing-decade-for-school-funding

Dr. Martin Luther King’s “The Other America” Speech at Stanford (1967)

Marin Luther King, Jr. said, “There are literally two Americas. One America is beautiful for situation. And in a sense this America is overflowing with the milk of prosperity and the honey of opportunity. This America is the habitat of millions of people who have food and material necessities for their bodies, and culture and education for their minds; and freedom and dignity for their spirits….” This speech is never mentioned by the popular media. We should question why this speech isn’t popular in the media. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, but his reality was “The Other America”.
