I say "we" because there has been so many of you who have encouraged me throughout the years. You've cheered for me with this writing thing even when I did not want to do it. I have watched some of you go from single and disgruntled to happily married LOL!

I appreciate you all! And please share this with your networks and circles of friends! Thanks again!












Reading is my favorite sport


There are a number of aspects of my life that you will read about in upcoming books.  My first book will be based on this blog.

Ever wonder why men don't call when they say they will?  Question his closeness with a certain woman he calls his "friend".  Want to know what men are really feeling, but never discuss?  That's what you'll get from this book.

I'll reveal the actual title before it is published.  My desire is to complete the book by January 14, 2011...

Pray with me that it is to be...

A Sense of Safety (Guest Post)

A Sense of Safety: Protection for Survivors of Domestic Violence February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month . Many young adult DV relationships begin during the teen years. When involved in a DV relationship, a person's safety is very often in peril. Nora Hood guest blogs for YBBG in this post. A Sense of Safety: Protection or Survivors of Domestic Violence. Approximately 20,000 calls are made to the National Census of Domestic Violence Services every day. It’s a fact of life for domestic violence survivors who live in fear that a former partner will show up without warning, seeking revenge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying

Wanetta Gibson's video confession

Wanetta Gibson photo: blacksportsonline Wanetta Gibson was a sophomore, when she met up with Brian Banks, a junior star linebacker, in a stairwell at Long Beach Polytechnic High. They stood in the stairwell making out, and then went their separate ways. That make out session led to an accusation of rape. Watch the video to see Brian tell what happened to him after their make out session. Then you will see the undercover video of Wanetta, ten years later, saying a rape never occurred. Wanetta Gibson reached out to Banks on Facebook, of all places, wanting to "let bygones be bygones".  He set up a meeting with her to be secretly recorded, confessing that a rape never happened.  She met him, but refused to go to court, and didn't even give him the courtesy of an apology. We now know that Brian went to prison off of, what I consider, poor legal advice.  His attorney allegedly told him he would be perceived negatively because he was a big black guy,

Brian Banks, falsely accused of rape by Wanetta Gibson

There, I read the story from his perspective.  According to him, he and Wanetta Gibson never had sexual intercourse.  They merely fooled around.  At the time he was sixteen years old, which makes his incarceration even more atrocious.  You can continue reading the original post I made below. ______________________________________________________ He was only 17 years old in 2002, and a hot commodity on the football field. One day he links up with a classmate, and they have sex. When the girl's mother finds out, Brian Banks is arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. He faced 41 years in prison. His attorney advised him to plead no contest to serve less than a quarter of that time. Brian Banks relents. Meanwhile the girl, Wanetta Gibson, continues to keep up the charade.  Her mother eventually sues the Long Bea
