mother of five strength to survive
Every month I plan to share a story of a mother that is striving to be successful. This story is about a woman named Sheketa F. This woman is a single mother of 5 children. She has raised all 5 kids basically by herself with little help from the government and the childrens fathers. Sheketa has managed to keep both herself and her kids on the straight & narrow by trusting in her lord and savior Jesus Christ. Everyday all day long this woman constantly post words of uplifting. Very few negative words spew from her mouth. This woman is a fighter who instills valuable principals of survival within her children. I salute you Sheketa for leading your brood in the ways of Christ through the blood of the lamb. Keep up the fine work.

If we were Generation X (those born in the 70’s and 80’s), where is Generation Y headed, and is there any hope for the youth of tomorrow?
So tell us what you think about Rihanna’s newest tattoo. My only concern is how’s it going to look after time takes it’s toll on her body and the youth has long gone and gravity settles in and the boobs began to spiral downward! What in the hell was she thinking about besides her grandmother?
With that being said how do you feel about the various other celebrities that have gone hom with using their bodies as a canvas for self expression? What do you tell your son/daughter thatidolizes such celebrities as Lil Wayne, Birdman, Gucciman, Rick Ross and etc? These celebrities have the money that it cost to remove this artwork need be when they get older.
Next to Oprah I believe that Michelle Obama was the most listened to black woman on national television at one particular time. Her speech was phenomenal. If you agree please feel free to leave a response below.
What do you really know about our Black President? Before President Obama became President of The United States of America did you know any thing about this man? I have to be completely honest with you on this question. I had the slightest clue as to who the hell Mr. Obama was, just like the many fellow Americans in the world. But over the last few years I have grown to not only respect this man but love his work ethic and values.
President Obama has done way more than I expected him to do in such a short period of time, do you agree? Our country was left in a complete shambles by the former President Mr. Bush and our present savior President Barack Obama has taken the reigns of this country and turned it around. Not completely but we are in a way better position now than we were at the beginning of his presidency. Do you agree with me on that note? Are you pleased with the job that our leader has done so far? If you do and you are agreeing with what I have written so far please do me a favor and share this post with your friends, family and associates, because our President needs our help. We as a people, and when I say people I’m refering to black America.
We were so pumped to be able to say that we witnessed this country elect a man of color into the highest office that this country holds. But now we as a people facea delima President Obama needs more supporters like you and I. Now that we finally have a black president in office are you willing to play your part in helping the first family stay in the White House?
These are just a few thoughts that have been on my mind lately, so I felt compelled to share my feelings with you my blogging audience. If you are a supporter of Who’s Got Dirt, The Dirty Dirty &The Charm City Post and you are in accordance with what is being said in this post please share these heart felt words. I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you for taking the time out to read this article. My name is Patrick”Whosgotdirt” Vick and I support our President. Will you support our President too?
President Barack Obama… Vote Now!!!
The city of charm has had some of the most intriguing news articles to grace the television screens across the globe that have grabbed a hold of both our hearts and our minds. This is an older post that touched me in such a way that I had to share it with you, The Charm City Post family. Being a father to three daughters I was deeply touched by the final out come of this unfortunate young lady and her family. As they cried, I cried. I believe that this was one of those stories that was felt world wide by every parent, brother and sister around the world.
The Maryland State Police, which took ownership of the case when Phylicia’s body was found in the river that splits Harford and Cecil counties, are investigating with city police and issued this response:
“The concern of the Barnes family is understood within the Maryland State Police. I want to assure them the investigation of Phylicia’s murder remains a priority for our Homicide Unit. I know the Baltimore Police Department shares that same commitment to this investigation. There is important investigative work being done that takes time and cannot be detailed publicly at this time. No one should think for a minute that this investigation has been suspended or is any less important to the Maryland State Police than it was the day Phylicia’s body was recovered.”
The Sun first reported in July that police had filed search warrants seeking access to email accounts and Facebook pages, citing child pornography statutes. Days before that report, the family had rallied outside City Hall.
Here’s a snippet of the letter:
While we understand that police investigations take time, we do not purport to understand why nearly 3 months after her body was found, there have been no arrests in her case. How is it a “person of interest” whom, according to the media, has given conflicting statements to police, has yet to be taken into custody? While none of us are privy to the details in this investigation, we do understand from media accounts and prior police statements that Phylicia’s death was not a “random” encounter. In addition, we are saddened, as well as angered that a bright, beautiful, 16 year old straight A, honor rolls student, who had her whole life ahead of her with so much to live for, could so senselessly be murdered while on Christmas vacation visiting family in this city.
We are deeply concerned about the slow developments of this case and we are afraid that justice may not be carried out in Phylicia’s death. Baltimore State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein, who campaigned on a slogan to, “Fight Crime First” and was publicly endorsed by the Baltimore Police Union as a, “Crusader for Justice” led this city to believe that he cared about putting victims before criminals and getting killers off the streets of Baltimore. That would included the murder of a 16 year old innocent child who no longer has a voice of her own. Baltimore police have stated on-air they believe they are the one of the best police departments in this country and have promised “closure” to the Barnes and Sallis family in Phylicia’s death. Her family cannot have “closure” without “justice”.
