Individual souls may take birth in such a location not only to fulfill their own destiny and Divine purpose, but also to assist on a larger scale, offering their sacrifice in service to a larger purpose that pertains to the nation as a whole.

There are places in the world that represent the ideals of a nation.  They hold an energy and vibration of what that nation is meant to become.  Sometimes they hold this in a positive way by showing what these ideals might look like in manifestation.  In this manner they create art, beauty, new architectural structures, new ways of people living together, new political forms.

There are other areas of a nation that may hold ideals in a different way, a way that points up what that nation is lacking and what it needs to strive for.  Sometimes great sacrifice is needed when the inhabitants of such an area become the living illustration of what a nation is called to.  In such cases the sacrifice may appear as an extreme version of the need for rectification of a nation's values, practices, or goals that have become out of balance and that have departed from that nation's true promise and destiny.  Individual souls may take birth in such a location not only to fulfill their own destiny and Divine purpose, but also to assist on a larger scale, offering their sacrifice in service to a larger purpose that pertains to the nation as a whole.

It is thus with New Orleans, her inhabitants, and with some of the rest of the Gulf coast as well.  Here, the ideal that is being pointed to both by its presence and by its absence is the ideal of community – the ideal of people caring for one another and taking responsibility for one another.  New Orleans demonstrates this by what she has had to do without due to the limited restoration of her homes, neighborhoods, and structures since Hurricane Katrina.  These are things that she still must do without in many instances, for she has never recovered from that earlier major hurricane.  At the same time and by virtue of this deprivation, the city and its inhabitants are calling the rest of the nation to a sense of communal responsibility.  Through the grit and resilience of its inhabitants, New Orleans continues to rebuild itself, calling many others to help sustain what cannot be sustained on its own.  This call to collective responsibility is the call to the soul of a nation from those who have sacrificed much in order to deliver this message.

At the same time, New Orleans reflects the nature of community built out of shared external hardship, but also out of love and commitment, often deeply religiously based, sometimes based on necessity, to help and sustain one another in the neighborhoods and parishes that make up her various sections. 
The love for communal culture and roots can be nowhere more illustrated that in the stories of those who were forced to leave their homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, some of whom have returned, many of whom have not been able to.  Now, once again with Hurricane Isaac, (making landfall in Louisiana on the same date seven years later as Hurricane Katrina), common hardship presents both the local community and the nation with a choice of shared responsibility or one of relative isolation, each from the other, each taking care of their own needs.

This is the message of a city and of a people - of a collective soul that calls to America to listen to the need for re-balancing itself.   New Orleans carries this message to the nation and to the world.  In this sense she is a rallying point for an energy that must be expanded if this country is to become what it is meant to be and what it has promised to be – a home for all people in which life can flourish.

Danziger - Justice


Judge imposes stiff sentences on 5 NOPD officers convicted in Danziger shootings

After a morning featuring powerful testimony from both the victims of the Danziger Bridge shootings and friends and relatives of the former NOPD officers who will spend much of their lives in prison, U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt this afternoon imposed stiff sentences on the five former cops who were convicted at trial last summer. The four defendants convicted of participating in the shootings themselves -- which claimed the lives of two civilians, and badly injured four others -- all face prison terms of more than 30 years.

Robert Faulcon Jr., 48, was sentenced to 65 years in prison. Faulcon is the only officer tied to the second of the two fatal shootings on the bridge -- that of Ronald Madison, a 40-year-old mentally challenged man. Madison was felled by a shotgun blast to the back fired by Faulcon on the western side of the bridge.

Former Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, 38, was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Bowen sat in the front passenger seat as a Budget rental truck full of officers sped to the bridge on the morning of Sept. 4, 2005. Prosecutors said Bowen jumped out of the truck and sprayed an AK-47 at a concrete barrier where civilians were hiding. The jury also convicted him of stomping on Madison as he lay dying, though Engelhardt later threw out that conviction, citing a lack of physical evidence.

Former Sgt. Robert Gisevius Jr., 39, was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Gisevius was one of several officers who rode to the bridge in the back of the Budget truck. He opened fire with an M-4 rifle after jumping out the back of the truck, and later, with Bowen and the investigators, helped orchestrate a years-long cover-up to hide what actually happened on the bridge.

Anthony Villavaso II, 35, was sentenced to 38 years in prison. He, too, rode in the back of the Budget truck, and then jumped out and fired an AK-47 at unarmed civilians on the bridge. Nine casings matching that AK-47 were recovered by investigators.

Former Sgt. Arthur "Archie" Kaufman, 55, who was convicted on 10 counts related to the cover-up of the shootings, was sentenced to six years in prison. Kaufman was the only one of the five defendants sentenced today who was not already incarcerated. Engelhardt ordered him to report to prison on May 23rd.

Petition for Trayvon Martin: Link

Prosecute the killer of our son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin


Why This Is Important
On February 26, our son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convenience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years-old.

Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community's self appointed "neighborhood watch leader," called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Travyon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman still hasn't been charged for murdering our son.

Trayvon was our hero. At the age 9, Trayvon pulled his father from a burning kitchen, saving his life. He loved sports and horseback riding. At only 17 he had a bright future ahead of him with dreams of attending college and becoming an aviation mechanic. Now that’s all gone.

When Zimmerman reported Trayvon to the police, they told him not to confront him. But he did anyway. All we know about what happened next is that our 17 year-old son, who was completely unarmed, was shot and killed.

It's been nearly two weeks and the Sanford Police have refused to arrest George Zimmerman. In their public statements, they even go so far as to stand up for the killer - saying he's "a college grad" who took a class in criminal justice.

Please join us in calling on Norman Wolfinger, Florida's 18th District State's Attorney, to investigate my son's murder and prosecute George Zimmerman for the shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin.

Dolphins are still dying and the oil is still here... {sigh} from the land of the big easy

Huge tar balls and a dead dolphin - a stroll down the beach in Grand Isle

Laurie Wiegle
Wed, 03 Aug 2011 19:17 CDT

Betty Doud, a painter who lives in one of the hardest-hit areas from the BP oil spill, spoke again to Examiner this week. She had posted a video on Facebook that showed some horrifically large tar "balls" that had washed up on the beach. These weren't balls - they were huge chunks, like dried petroleum bowling balls.

Examiner asked Betty if she'd respond to some questions. She ended up writing a thorough report of what she observed over just the past few days. Here's what she had to say (this has only been lightly edited for clarity):

Florida arrests folks for feeding the homeless...

Can you imagine that people could be arrested for feeding the homeless? Not in New Orleans... For all the negative press this city gets for the crime and dirt (oh yeah, I just saw you dump trash outta ya car!)... this is a GENEROUS city when it comes to individuals and groups who take care of those who are less fortunate then themselves.

I remember after Katrina when so many were homeless and hungry, especially those living under the overpass on Claiborne Avenue, and Tent City by City Hall... The individuals and groups that I saw daily to come and feed the homeless made me feel proud to be a New Orleanian. Proud to be a human.

When I would ask folks why they were there, this is what I remember being told:

"I want my children to understand how important it is to take care of others, and to see that others don't have a life as good as theirs."

"I drive a bus everyday and I pass by these people and I had to do something to help."

"My mother just made a bunch of food and told me to take it down here and feed people."

"Why can't we have enough food to feed everyone?" That was Mr. Curtis from the Praline Connection. He could often be found feeding the poor.

What's ironic, it is often the black New Orleanian families that I saw out feeding the poor, often out of the back of their vehicles, some with much less than those who have to give and choose not to. Ironic and blessed.

Church's, individuals, groups... I have witnessed incredible acts of charity in this city. Whether it is feeding the homeless, or the bunkerbusters and travelers, the beggars and broken - my  heart will never, ever, forget the acts of charity and kindness I have witnessed.

Rest in Peace" Sis. Mary Ethel White 103: Mother of Mount Carmel Baptist Church

"I shall wear a crown when the trumpet sounds..."

How many of us with a shorter life span than this Godly woman can say we have led a loving and righteous life? Mother 'Marie' Mary Ethel White's funeral and repast was held today. I never met Mother Mary, yet felt her spirit of love and kindness resonating throughout the services held today at Mount Carmel Baptist Church at 2024 N. Tonti Street in the 7th Ward of New Orleans.

I will share some of the lovely tributes shared from the heart in honour of Sis. Mary Ethel White, the 'Mother' of Mount Carmel Baptist Church:

Her favorite song/lyrics: "It's all right, Jesus has made it all right."
Hymn attributed to Mother Mary "On the Battlefield for the Lord"

"Mother Mary was a woman who gave her life in service to others and Christ."

Mother Mary... "A person you will never forget once you've known her."

"A beautiful person to know, loving to everybody, taking care of those in need."

Blessings Mother Mary,
 truly, you are "Bound for the Promised Land".

One Love

An Open Letter to the Female African American Police Officers of the NOPD

Today I witnessed, intervened, stopped, and then called in, an incident of an African American woman being beaten by an African American man. I drove up to the scene witnessing the woman being repeatedly and brutally punched in the head and face. She was pinned in the back of the SUV, whilst the man, repeatedly beat her in the head. The back of the SUV was open and I witnessed the assault. The beating only ended by my beeping the horn and parking behind the vehicle, continuing to beep. The man stopped beating the woman and came after me, threatening me, then ran back to the vehicle preventing the woman from escaping when I asked her if she wanted to come with me in my vehicle. She said yes, but could not escape, he locked the door as I was talking to her and got in the vehicle and began driving away. He backed up to continue his threats to me and I asked through the window if she wanted me to call the police and she said yes. When the man heard this he began to drive away, I heard her cry out to me "please call the police".

The purpose of this letter is to address the difference between a "fight" and a "beating - assault." When I described the event to the first officer who took the call, an African American Officer and a woman, she remarked about it being a "fight". I corrected her that it was not a "fight". I received a call back from another African American Officer - also female, who also said to me when I described what happened, "it was a fight."

My sisters, a man beating a woman repeatedly and brutally in the head as she is penned into a vehicle and unable to escape is NOT a fight. A woman pleading to escape a violent incident is not a woman in a fight. Too many times in my brief time here in New Orleans living in the African American community have I seen my sisters beaten and abused. And I find the tolerance of abuse and assault far too high. I was shocked not only by the brutality of the beating I witnessed today, but again twice more when WOMEN officers both labelled the assault as a "fight".

Until the cycle of abuse/assault is identified and labelled for what it is first in the home, then in the neighborhood and communities, I fear that female officers such as the ones I engaged with today, will continue to have a high tolerance for what constitutes abuse and assault on African American women.

I pray the SUV was found and the man arrested. I pray that the woman is able to leave the situation she has found herself in with this man. I pray for a greater and more compassionate understanding between African American women when it comes to violence and abuse. I pray for the children who are continually exposed to abusive and violent situations from both their male and female parents. I pray for an end to the familial and generational tolerance of abuse and violence. And most of all, I pray that there might be more sensitivity then I experienced today on the part of those who are in positions of protecting the community. And lastly, I pray for a lower tolerance level when it come to abuse and violence in the African American family.

2011 A time of planetary and solar changes

The weather, earth, and solar movements are happening faster and the animals, rivers, and oceans are dying out.

Collectively without being anchored in our hearts, we have been heading not towards a civilization change which is ready, spiritually anchored, balanced, and prepared, but a civilization where we can look back a shake our heads with horror for what we have done to the planet and our planetary brothers and sisters, human and all other species spite of our spiritual and material accomplishments.


Time accelerates. An opening of a planetary vortex.
Blessed be.

Time accelerates.

5/25/11: Stating the obvious...Missouri River Flooding and the Mississippi River

Stop eating the fish you are catching! As of a few weeks ago many I know who fish in the river and lake stopped because as fishermen, they knew intuitively something was wrong with the fish. I am now hearing that people may be getting sick from eating the fish. If you are feeling sick and you have been fishin in the Mississippi or the Lake and the Gulf, stop for a few weeks and see if your symptoms disappear.

There will be repercussions on the Mississippi River from the super storms occurring in the northern Midwest.

"It's only June but one thing is certain: 2011 is another extraordinary flood year. The record high water levels just experienced on the Mississippi from Cairo to Baton Rouge will soon be joined by new record levels on the Missouri River at numerous sites above Kansas City. The vagaries of rainfall delivery will dictate how bad things will become and how far downstream serious problems will propagate, but indications are that many dozens of levees will fail, either by overtopping, under-seepage or simply because they will be water saturated for long periods of time."

It's Not Safe for a Black Man to Drive through Jefferson Parrish...

 Is  it  ?

Google: Man tasered, dies in Jefferson Parish Louisiana after pullover for traffic violation by State Troopers.

Even this headline is framed to blame the man who died:

"Hours after struggle with police, man dies while in custody"

Oh yeah, I know about the guns, and the subsequent portrayal of this man through the media by the police, who were responsible for his death. AND he was a human being. I also heard that he was a father of 5. One of his children was in the car at the time of the pullover and watched as his father was electrocuted. Enough to kill him. His child witnessed torture. Nuff said.

I waited over 24 hours to make this post, as I was greatly distressed by Mr.Woolridge's death by taser and his child's trauma, as a result of witnessing the event. I did not want to write from my anger. I needed my God to steady my heart and cool my mind before I took the pen.

One other planetary note: The title of this post is what my heart said to my mind the moment I heard and witnessed this story. Even after the 24 hours had passed, it was still strong in my heart.

You learn the darnedest things on the internets. For example, I just found out that the Gulf of Mexico is the primary disposal site for unexploded military munitions - over 30 million pounds of bombs, projectiles and chemical ordnance.

And because records are spotty and incomplete, we don't know exactly where these dumps are.

Gulf Update: August 18, 2011: The area being investigated is South of Louisiana

BP Investigates New Oil Sheen Near Green Canyon Block In Gulf Of Mexico

Gulf Update: June 8, 2011: Gulf Oil Spill Reported Near Venice, Louisiana; Coast Guard Investigating

"A dead zone -- already the size of the state of New Jersey -- is growing in the Gulf of Mexico, fueled by nutrient runoff from the swollen Mississippi River."

This year, with floodwaters from the Birds Point levee breach and the Morganza and Bonnet Carret spillways spreading over farmland and other residential areas, the river is collecting tremendous amounts of fertilizer and pesticides. This is contributing to what scientists say may become the largest dead zone ever, and posing a serious threat to already taxed marine life.   (read more)

Heavy spring rains and snow-melt led to devastating floods along the Mississippi River in May 2011. Landsat 5 flew down the Mississippi River on May 10, 2011, giving a breathtaking view of the water's spread. To prevent flooding in Cairo, Illinois, the US Army Corps of Engineers blew a two-mile hole in the levee to let the waters flow into the New Madrid Floodway. Near Memphis Tennessee, flood waters crested at 48 feet, only inches below the record high level of the 1937 floods.

Mississippi River Flood Warnings/Updates - Hydrologic Outlooks via


Get the most recent updates:

An Awakening Earth...


A new energy is covering the Earth.
It is transforming the molecules of physical matter and uplifting
the consciousness of all.

It is infiltrating the structure of the material world and
bringing about changes that will create greater life
and light within time and space.

This new energy is the Divine Breath of God,
held in the embrace of physical matter in a unity of wholeness
and integration.

It is not felt independently of the human
experience. It is felt THROUGH the human
experience - both physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Its purpose is to set mankind free.

Its goal, to return to each and every child of God the full range
of Divine motion that is inherently a part of being human,
and the full depth of knowledge of identity and selfhood
that holds life to be sacred

and oneself to be part of a greater sacred Whole.
Moving silently as a mist that is only visible
when looked at from a certain angle of perception,
the new energy is infusing consciousness - the consciousness
that IS, and the consciousness that HAS BEEN,
with new perspectives and new options
for the future.

It is subtly and surely conveying to the hearts of all that
a new way of life is coming into being, bringing the expansive
freedom of more life into the landscape of current life.
This sacred and unheralded mist penetrates to the heart's core .
It will transform all of life, relationships, expectations,
hopes, and possibilities for mankind.

It will create a new picture of the possible.
It will broaden and deepen the way in which 'ordinary relationships'
are conceived.

It will give new meaning and depth to the understanding of love.
Each soul that bends to become one with this emerging reality
is being lifted into a new state of awareness
within themselves, one in which old limitations and distortions
are revealed and healed, and in which new vistas open out.

One in which old identities, based on personal and biological
history are gathered together into a new unity,
housed within the sacred wholeness of one's inner Divine being.

Each one who seeks to feel the incoming tide of the Breath of God
is finding themselves breathed through
by the new beginnings of this time of unfoldment.

For the new energy of Divine Breath comes on the soft feet of
the mist itself.

It is carried on the wings of angels and the Divine
intention of other beings of light that enhance the flow of what
is taking place. It is breathed in by the hearts and souls of all.
Arriving soundlessly, it moves without force and without the need
for coercion or even attention,
for its power is the power of love and of comfort, and its place within
the heart is therefore assured.

Its action will move the inhabitants of the Earth
to a new consciousness - an awareness of Divine being living in
and through all of physical life,
as the world is made whole and the new life of a sacred planet
comes into existence.
