Anthony Stokes is a 15-year-old kid from Atlanta who currently has an Enlarged Heart and was given 6 months or less to live unless he receives a heart transplant. His Parents were informed that he doesn’t qualify for a transplant because he has been labeled as “Non-Compliant” due to him having past trouble with the law and low grades. The Hospital is saying that “they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,” and this is partly based on that label.
So they are willing to deny a kid a life-saving procedure because of his test scores? That’s ridiculous to say the least and I can only imagine what this story would be like if it was young white kid. He is only 15 and his past trouble with the law isn’t even that serious, but irregardless of that it shouldn’t have anything to do with the medical care he receives. This is just a prime example of how little America views Black Lives. Please share your thoughts and opinions on this.

This is Martin, 8. He died in the Boston bombing yesterday. He was at the finish line with his family, waiting for his dad to cross. His mother and little sister were catastrophically injured. He was the student of our dear friend, Rachel Moo. His message resonates powerfully today. My prayer is that we all live by Martin’s words, paying tribute to his too-brief, but immeasurably valuable life by following his example.
Not sure if this has been posted. Just spreading the word.
Any mother who does this deserves her son back. ;;

there’s a post going around of some girl linking to a “picture of her prom dress” when the link leads to a picture of a gif’d mutilated face and screaming. i imagine that this could be very harmful to both people with epilepsy or those with anxiety problems and the like. it happened to alarm me a lot.
