    MXMGBTR - 04/30 "True Life Experiences,"Autism Awareness" - Queen Allison Burton

    in Family

    A show dedicated to "True Life Experiences." "Autism Awareness," with The Life & Motivation of Ms. Allison Lady-Burton Queen, a wife, mother, sister, friend and supporter.


    "My name is Allison Burton a wife, mother, coach, mentor, and a mother of 4 beautiful children with our oldest daughter Starr Burton being an autistic child.


    A mother can always feel if her child is in pain or unhappy, I noticed that Starr was different around 7months.Starr was not labeled of course she was of school age but we did not let it slow her down or hinder her development. 


    Braylon Burton, Starrs father and myself through prayer, faith, and her loving grandparents never treated Starr any differently,  we pushed her and worked harder to develop her social,and cognitive skills.Today, Starr Burton no longer needs I.E.P.teachers and works independent in the classroom.  Last year our daughter past her CRCT Test with out assistance and she is now this year preparing to take the Georgia Milestones.


    Autism is a range of complex neuro development disorders ranging from mild to severe. Autism not only affects a child but the entire family. Love, patience, faith in God and acceptance but never giving up is what determines how a child will develop and how successful he or she will become, because we are all different!!!"

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/Don Durant

    in Writing

    Our Broadcast today will focus on our children, our schools and our community failures. Money is a powerful force.  We work for it, spend it, use it to satisfy our earthly longings.  But so many of our communities take our tax dollars and  fail to provide for our students.  Common Core, is only one of the issues, the other in the Largest Town in America, (Town of Hempstead) is the redevelopment going on with the wealthy developers building 6-10 story apartment buildings in a single Village of Hempstead, and failing to provide adequate classroom space for the growing families. The Village has selected a developer, Renassance Downtown, and failed to allocate appropriate funds, for development depending on tax increases to bring it about as they move out established residents.  Tune in and join in on our broadcast on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant...

    Chit Chat with B.Fly Welcomes Author Sunny Giovanni

    in Radio

    In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni-- or "Gio" as she likes to be called-- was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book beforehand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.
    The pen was handed down to her from an older sibling as a means to focus her negative energy and anger into something different but was used as a way to alter her own situations.
    As a preteen Gio witnessed how much her writing could touch someone when she left one of her prized spirals in a classroom without knowing. Two weeks after it went missing someone brought it back to her asking for more, letting the young author know that almost everyone she knew read the story, but without knowing it was her in the story she had written.
    Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and transgender rights, and says: "You can't help who you are and you damn sure can't help who you love. 
    Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up. Even at a random moment. If it makes no sense, see how fast they forget about everything else and wonder what's wrong with you but end up smiling in the process. It works every time."
