Brian Elders Roofing Dissolution and a word about Freddie Gray
Bad customer service from one of the leading roofing company's in the Mid-South. It's a shame when the company you keep is only in it for the money and decides what they want to do and completely disregard what the customer wants and asks for. The other issue is the case of Baltimore's Freddie Gray, a terrible tragedy where a lay person could see that he was in pain and injured before the police so brutally dragged his limp body to the van and refused to call for help, causing him to die.
In this reairing (repeat) episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on the recent tragedy in Chapel Hill, North Carolina where Craigs Hicks, a "militant atheist" and devotee of "new atheist" Dr. Richard Dawkins executed three young Muslim students. Hicks executed in cold blood: Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, Yusor Mohammad, 21, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19 - See more at: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2015/02/atheist-kills-young-muslims.html#sthash.1lMfPTt1.dpuf.
The crime has sent shockwaves across the world, especially among atheists who often claim that atheism is a peaceful movement as opposed to religion which they claim causes war and death. Despite local law officials calling the crime an isolated incident over parking spaces, the possibility of it being a hate crime has not been ruled out. The federal goverment is investigating the crimes for possible charges of hate since Hicks' personal views on Facebook and in person exhibit hate towards God, religion and religious people. Sacerdotus gives his input on the tragedy and speaks on the psychology behind Hicks and atheists in general based on available research.

Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’. The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States. It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos. The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.
The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten

Bullies And Friends is the critically-acclaimed Documentary Film on bullying, slated for worldwide release. It profiles various bullying incidents, while focusing on the powerful true story of a 14 year-old girl named Dawn-Marie, who after being bullied and threatened with death by three girls at her high school, committed suicide.

Psalm 73 shares with us regarding the tragedy of the wicked and the Blessedness of Trusting in God. This morning we are talking from the topic, I Almost Lost It. Have you ever been so focused on what others had and were doing that you lost focus on what God was doing for you? I can admit that I have. Not knowing who I was and what He intended for me - I almost lost it. My faith was wavering, doubt was overriding and nothing was getting done. Father is saying this morning, don't give up - He's working on your behalf and desires that you just TRUST HIM!
