The violence that hurts us all

“It’s okay, Puddin, it’s okay, we’re good.” I was more focused on calming my 10 year old daughter down than tending to my knee I hurt while hitting the floor as “Hood Terrorists” riddled our block (Eddy and Laguna Sts.) with bullets that missed my neighbor&rsquo

Everything’s Political

Poverty is politics

Racism is politics

Sexism is politics

Classism is politics

Capitalism, politics

Fuck those politics

 

Writing by T. Yeargin: "While Men and Women Weep" "Father Who are You?" "Who Am I" and "Human Development"

WHILE MEN AND WOMEN WEEP

As they do now, I’ll fight for their rights

to be free,

While little children go hungry as they do now,

I will try to feed them with the truth so they will

never go hungry.

 

While men go to prison,

In and out as they do now,

I’ll fight to be free and stand on

The word of god!

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.

A breeze for Mark

There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.
