Copycat Maybe?


The Following intertitle.png

There has been a show that I started watching called The Following. I first  like any other show although it was on Season 2 and I felt that I was too behind to catch up, I thought that  may be watching for recreational time would “suffice”. However after the 2nd episode, the Lord indeed showed me that it was for a purpose.

The show has a great story line because it is really based upon how a CULT in 2014 could happen – how it obtains its followers, how the leader manipulates existing followers to recruit new followers.

It comes on EST on Mondays at  9pm on FOX – with Kevin Bacon – there are certain parts that I would call my son Jared in to watch with me and as a scene would happen, I would quickly explain to him how it happened and what he should do in an instance like this etc.

From things happening at restaurants, bus stops and most importantly school settings – Which comes to the point of this blog post –  On a scale from 1 to 10 my son’s current school district is considered an “7.75” and the next town over is a  “8.5 ”  so of course wanting my son to obtain a BETTER education I was pondering on a few things.

However, this morning in a “neighboring” school district that I have been contemplated moving into for the last year has had a tragic morning – I INDEED believe that this HORRIFIC incident that transpired was connected to the TV show, The Following –  I am NOT saying that the high school student was apart of a cult but “spiritually speaking”…….. you have to watch just only one episode of the show in regards to what happened to see what I am saying.

Knowing Your Own Limits –


Although he did this VOLUNTARILY but he did not know what he was getting into….. I can think of other ways PERSONALLY to make the world or at least parts of it knowledgable of things that are done RIGHT or WRONG ….

without ME experiencing traumatic events like this – kudos to Mos Def for doing this and I am glad that they REALLY SHOWED how he broke down and could not continue on with this process…. being a soldier who is TRAINED to deal with this type of stuff and become numb to it..sets them up as an EMOTIONAL BASKETCASE when they return home to their families…

When you are trained everyday to NOT SHOW EMOTIONS – trust me it spills out onto other things in your life regardless if you are no longer in the military or not –  this type of behavior cannot be turned on and off like a light switch because if it could…..there wouldnt be so many post traumatic stress cases within our social service and veteran hospitals today –

America is something……. I don’t know what “that something” is yet…

 JUST SIMPLY VERY SAD……………

Memorial Day weekend has brought violence to Chicago, with six killed and at least 22 wounded so far, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

On Friday evening a 17-year-old girl was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the same incident. Later that night another man was shot and killed.

On Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into the apartment building himself, according to police. The attackers then entered through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back.

Also on Saturday, and 18-year-old man was shot in the head in a possible drive-by.

On Sunday, police responded to a disturbance call and found Malcolm Dobbey, 27, shot to death in a backyard. Detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no charges had been brought as of Sunday evening.

Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a gentleman’s club, was shot and killed during an incident in which a Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati. When Jones pulled over to confront the other motorist, the driver and a passenger walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones dead, police said. A 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded by a shot to the hip or back.

Sweets = Calories = Weight =Toothaches


Just as they say within the police departments, school buildings and community centers…. SAY NO TO DRUGS!! They should also put those same posters up in local bakeries saying. SAY NO TO SUGAR! I mean seriously, it is one thing having a sweet tooth but making cakes and danishes with candy as well? Who does that? Who would eat that? Why would they eat that? UGGHH!

I am trying to OBSESSIVELY get these LAST and gone forever 15 to 20 pounds off of me and just by ” literally “……. L-O-O-K-I-N-G  at a photo, I feel that I have not only became a diabetic, but also gained the pounds that I sincerely want and need to lose!  #TOOMUCH

Just Wondering…..


I love POLITICS but………….. politics via Florida’s Legislation  has indeed KILLED this boy! Almost every law that we are still going by was made many – many years ago…. Some of these laws NEED to be re – addressed – AMENDDED as soon as possible before any more people ( black men especially ) are killed. GEESH

America is so backwards in a great deal of things that we do, believe in and act out and call it LEGAL! This country “literally” lets you get away with Murder but if you check the statistical data on other countries like Mexico, China and Czech Republic…those people seem to think TWICE before committing hard-core crimes.

More than 900,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org demanding the arrest of shooter George Zimmerman. See the extent of protests across the country and tell us if you plan to participate. http://on.cnn.com/GLwXXQ
