Tonight's special guest is Brittney Bray, a returning NAASCA family member from New Jersey. A survivor of child abuse who was removed from her family as a teen, she was eventually able to take advantage of the CASA SHaW facility in Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties, and is now enjoying life in recovery. At the age of 15 she was taken away from her family due to her parents' drug abuse and her father's physical abuse towards her. She experienced about 8 different placements from the age of 15 till the age of 16. She was involved with many organizations, including the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). At the age of 17 she had her first child. At 18 she married the baby's father and became independent. After her son was born, she was faced with opposition from the child welfare system which did not believe she could succeed as a mother. CASA SHaW was there to support and defend her, helping her to retain custody of her baby. Brittney says, "I have tried to make the best from my difficult past. I am thankful to CASA for continuing to be supportive to me. Today I am 23, I live in my own home, I have 2 healthy and happy children, and I have been happily married for 5 years. I work, and I am planning to go back to school. My parents are in my life, and the relationship I have with them is stronger than ever now. We've all made it to the other side of a bad time."
Hi, Did you KNOW......As I speak, Anger is moving swiftly in the Body of Christ? The spirit of MURDER is freely visiting the very Elect. Families of faith and even faith movements have silently cradled anger to the point of angry Public and Pulpit messages. Lord help US ALL today! No wonder we have angry children in communities and schools.....WHY?...they watch and listen to what suppose to be love messages but instead they witness family, friends, and church-house corrupt communication!

It is evident that the need for self-reliance has become more important than ever as we face the growing incidence of natural, un-natural (man-made), and personal disasters. We're facing increasing losses of political, economic, financial, and personal control. Add to that the debasement of our moral values, and we're a country that's declining in goodlines, positive values, and loss of our freedom.
As our choices are removed and as our public values decline, we can see the need and propriety of preparedness and the value of determining what preparedness skills, talents, and abilities the future will demand of us and our family.
We owe it to ourselves and our families to become prepared or get better prepared--and to do it now!
The newest Edition of Making the Best of Basics has been published for THIS generation. In it, I te ach to the conclusion that it really doesn’t matter what causes the need for one to become prepared––If you are properly (adequately) prepared, you need not fear what the future may bring!

Immigration reform is not about Blacks and Latinos. Immigration reform includes people from countries all over the world. Immigration reform is necessary not just because people have crossed into United States illegally or are here undocumented. Immigration reform is necessary because we are a country of immigrants. Immigration reform is necessary because without it employers will continue to exploit workingclass citizens and non-citizens. A pathway to citizenship is for the good of all America. Right now, our broken immigration system benefits only the 1% and those who are the puppets of the 1%. Black unemployment and citizenship for the illegal and the undocumented are not a rivalry issue about immigration. We all immigrated here except for Native Indians and stolen Africans. And every since Africans were freed from slavery, unemployment has been high for African Americans. Self-employment kept African Americans living. Self-employment became part of the black code law that put African Americans at the mercy of slave wages. So there is nothing new in 2014 about Black unemployment. Unemployment for Blacks has always been higher than unemployment for any other groups of Americans. Pre-President Obama, Blacks experienced first fired last hired. Had it not been for family/communitiy way of life over the decades, and creativity that has been handed from one generation to the the next, where would Black families be today?
Highest unemployment is the norm in Black communities and for Black Americans
Poor living conditions reflected in shelter and transportation means
Consumption of foods not for nutrition value but based on value of available funds
High imprisonment for lessor offenses
No protection under the law for hangings and rape at will
