" No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
“It hath seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, devoutly, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and voice, by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea, and those who are sojourning i

The Gist of Freedom pays tribute to President Obama's birthday with the speech, we believe, is responsible for giving birth to his presidency.
State Senator Barack Obama, delivered the Democratic National Convention's keynote address on Tuesday, July 27, 2004. It was a refreshing, revitalizing and unifying speech. The enthusiastic response from the audience foretold the historic story of Iowa, the overwhelming support they gave him, 4 years later, during his successful run to the White House.

The Gist of Freedom is asking you to join us as we support Dr. Nathan Hare and his wife as they struggle with Alzheimer's. http://www.gofundme.com/Let-Her-Be-Free
"Dr. Julia Hare has been living with Alzheimer’s for several years and was she was recently diagnosed with the End Stage of the condition. Her health providers refused to treat her on an outpatient basis without confinement ( if you are determined to leave and expressly “go home,” they label you a “wanderer” and lock the door. When I would go to see her in her locked situation, at the end of the visiting hour I would have to conspire with the staff to distract her in order for me to ease out the door and slip away without her. On the other side of the slamming door, secured by the loud click of the prison-like lock, I would hear her realizing my exit and banging on the door and calling my namel.”
I took a physician and a lawyer as well as a retired judge and with me and went out and brought her home. Almost as soon as we got home she was getting better.
Although most of her medical costs are now being paid by her health insurance company, the cost of caregivers is staggering and relentless.
Four years ago when we were undeniably blindsided by this diabolical and incurable condition, several persons suggested that I let it be known and accept donations to help preserve the freedom and dignity of the proud and inimitable lady I promised, fifty-seven years ago, to protect and “To Love and to Cherish”.
I am now following their advice and posting this donation request. Although we are advised by the Good Book to share and share alike, keep in mind that it’s the little things that count and, as one of Aesop's fables reminds us, no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
Educator Extraordinaire, Dr. Naomi Johnson-Booker, Founder of The Global Academy talks with Roy Paul on The Gist of Freedom, www.blackHistoryUniversity.com
Global Leadership Academy Charter School (GLA) is a Kindergarten through Eighth Grade school with two wonderfully organized small learning communities located in West and Northeast Philadelphia. GLA is a holistic teaching and learning environment. GLA's goal is to provide a solid educational program developed through global studies and leadership skills to develop future leaders of the world.
"On Tuesday night, Global Leadership Academy Charter School in West Philadelphia held its lottery for grades kindergarten through 8.
Parents were on the edge of their seats because they know what's at stake.
About 500 more parents joined the gamble this year. GLA believes it's because of the controversy surrounding Philadelphia School District closures.
Once those names were called, there was a lot of joy.
"I'm excited. I'm happy. My oldest son goes to GLA so I know what's in store and I'm happy," Nicole Chism of West Philadelphia said.

Erica Garner, the daughter of chokehold victim Eric Garner will discuss the latest indictments and arrest of police with guest host, Dashon Farad on The Gist of Freedom.
Texas Cop who threw girl to ground and pointing his pistol at other black youths resigns.
It appears two Good Cops saved the lives of the two teens Casebolt drew his gun on the teens while they tried to assist a teenager being assaulted by Casebolt.
The two officers in this brief video represent two different policing styles: the Guardian and the Warrior. As a former police officer and current policing scholar, I know that an officer’s mindset has tremendous impact on police/civilian encounters.
The Gist of Freedom is pleased to welcome Professor Robert Pallito, author of In the Shadow of the Great Charter.
In the Supreme Court's 2008 ruling on whether Guantanamo detainees could be barred from U.S. courts, Justice Anthony Kennedy cited both the U.S. Constitution and the Magna Carta. Why would a 21st-century judge invoke a document signed by an English king in the 13th century? As professor Robert Pallitto, author of In the Shadow of the Great Charter; shows, Magna Carta's legacy in the United States reaches back to the nation's founding, with even the colonial charters reflecting its influence and principles that protect the rights and liberty of the citizenry. A book signing follows the program.
