Background: The U.S. ranks 41st among nations in maternal and infant mortality, with African-American infants dying at a rate of nearly 14 per 1,000 live births. In some states, the incidence is nearly 20. In addition, African-American women are almost four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications than white women.
This disparaging reality does not include the enormity of permanent injuries suffered by both mother and child surrounding maternity.

One of the first black women to under go an Exorcism Clara Germana Cele (Warning Signs of Demonic Possession).
One day in 1906 at Marianhill mission school in Umzinto, South Africa, Father Erasmus Horner came to hear a strange and troubling confession from one of the young Catholic students there – she’d made a pact with the Devil. The student was 16-year-old Clara Germana Cele, known by the nuns as an ordinary, if somewhat unpredictable, young black girl who’d been orphaned by her parents as an infant and attended the school since the age of four. While the confession was quickly forgotten, in the following weeks Clara began engaging in erratic behavior – behavior that graduated to insane levels on August 20, 1906, when the startled sisters at the school witnessed Clara tearing at her clothes, growling like an animal, and engaging in conversation with seemingly invisible beings. At one point she is reported to have said: “Sister, please call Father Erasmus. I must confess and tell everything. But quick, quick, or Satan will kill me. He has me in his power! Nothing blessed is with me; I have thrown away all the medals you gave me.” And later: “You have betrayed me. You have promised me days of glory, but now you treat me cruelly.” Join us as we discuss demons and exorcism. We will also discuss how to close those gateways. Tune In!

How can we help those around us transition from each different stage of our lives? Does talking to an infant really help them? Temper tantrums, aren't they fun? Do you think being positive helps children of all ages? Talking all the time to your children, teaching them through example is always a positive empowerment.
What about those teen years? Do you throw your hands up in the air and hope for the best? How important is education? How are good values learned?
