Caribbean monk seal becomes extinct one day after you died
This was no coincidence and we have to learn the connection
That we cannot ignore the pain of any sanctioned being
Animal, fowl, child or tree … none can care for themselves alone

When I heard about your death
I was checking facebook and I could only cry
Think about all the possible actions
Of what I or any could do to say no more
No more letting it be a silent tree falling in the forest
Somebody heard it like they heard you
Somebody knew there was maybe an issue
Someone had a sense that something was not right
Malicious reporting would have been someone else’s story

Then came these words to me

Son I am Sorry

For the many times a hand was raised against you
Where you did not know whether to hug or run
Be really silent, to scream or cry
Know the words to say just how bad your day
To be not afraid of everything in sight
The tortured thought of how to sleep tonight

Son I am sorry

For the neighbor who knew not what was behind the door
Who ignored the gut feeling something is not as it should be
For all who should have protected you and did not know to ask
How is Kyle adjusting and for you is this too much of a task
To support all who were connected to you

Kyle I am sorry

When the cigarette burns came
You must have felt betrayed by everyone and your skin
With every body pain I must tell you that you did not deserve this sin
The broken bone or the bruises wherever found
There is no excuse why you lived or died this way
The change is coming and it starts NOW

Son of this community ..... I am Sorry

Sins of our sons
Sins of man
Bring Tragedy to life
From an unmerciful hand
Bring Life to the Sight]
Life our of his Soul
A story of so many
But only few Told
Bring theses children Hope
Becuase It it was never their fault
Tears Drip dry
From crying, crying so potently
Bring Life from this death
Bright Light from this Stike of life
Bring the heart of the child
To the Gates of Height

The mother and boyfriend were arrested today..... It broke my heart that they are people of color. we keep giving excuses for them to take our children. I am saddened on all levels. realistically though this is across the board.

Peace

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
