The release of a new novel deserves some show and tell, especially when it is about a marriage counselor having marital problems.
Right after his acquittal, Child Killer, George Zimmerman just happened to happen up on a family overturned on the Highway and stopped, despite feeling endangered to rescue a family of 4, two adults, two children. Miraculously, no one in the OVERTURNED vehicle was hurt or even made it to the hospital it seems. 2 kids 2 adults, seems the only thing missing from the scene was a lovable puppy. I’d imagine they could’ve been more creative, but why bother. They were able to put on a mock trial, why not cap it off with a mock rescue.
Man do we need a riot in Sanford. You can read the entire disturbing article here :( RIP trayvon Martin.
George Zimmerman! How does a man stalk, start a fight with, kills a teenager, and claim self-defense and then walk after the evidence has been presented? Be white in any town and kill a black person of any gender, age, or stature. It’s been proven again and again, and contrary to what white America says. Racism just showed itself as being very much alive. Sad to write this but I had to. I no longer believe in the justice system as anything just.
I suppose the answers should be forthcoming, but that joke of a trial was a sad joke. Try to prove me wrong and I’ll show you the eulogy of Emitt Till and Trayvon Martin and others unreported.
Sometimes you just need to smile. Hope your Wednesday is good.
As for me I am back in full swing and looking forward to sharing some knowledge with you as usual. If you don’t know who I am and what I write about. please browse. Hope to have material soon.
I see sadness all around. Looking at this week I am thankful my brother who works near the Marathon wasn’t too close. Had to check in. Now seeing the whole lockdown in the Boston area, you have to wonder how this will end. Madness I tell you.

The Gleaner reports that Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) unveiled its newest campaign “Jamaica Me Happy” at a reception honoring award-winning reggae icon Jimmy Cliff and star of VW’s “Get Happy” commercial, Erik Nicolaisen. The unveiling took place at the gardens of The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston, Jamaica:
Minister of Tourism Wykeham McNeill expressed his admiration for the promotion of Brand Jamaica through the ad. “As you are aware, the ‘Get Happy’ commercial has been causing quite a stir internationally, with persons expressing differing views about it both in the public media and on social-media platforms. I happen to like the advertisement and support it wholeheartedly, so much so that I encourage everyone to do as it recommends and tap into your inner Jamaican and ‘get happy’,” McNeill said.
McNeill also paid tribute to Jimmy Cliff for his recent Grammy award win for the album, Rebirth. McNeill noted…

Human Trafficking is a big problem the world over. Every day someone is kidnapped or shipped across the waters to end up a servant, unwilling worker, or worse on a distant shore. They never know anyone, they cannot count on anyone, and usually the worst part is they are afraid that if they say anything their lives will end. That is why when Authors like Jessica Kristie comes along we all have ti highlight the research and work they put into the works of art they produce. Barbed-Wire Butterflies is just that kind of work.
Jessica didn’t just write a Novel about Human Trafficking but is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sales of this book Published on Amazon to Courage Worldwide, an international non-profit organization that is building homes around the world for children rescued out of sex trafficking. Barbed-Wire Butterflies shows the atrocities children as young as 13 year old Elani Benjamin faces when they’re kidnapped and are required to do forced-Labor under abhorrent conditions. Can you imagine you or your child having to live through such a thing? The uncertainty of ever having to see home and family again. That is what these children and adults who are trafficked each day face.
I personally applaud Jessica for her work, for the time she took to write this masterpiece and sharing it with the world in order to dedicate it to a cause of this magnitude. She joins the ranks of many who are actively helping to combat human trafficking, adding another voice to those who are saying stop. Support not only this author, but the cause of fighting human trafficking by purchasing your copy of Barbed-wire Butterflies or gifting it to someone whom you know would enjoy benefiting from this book.
I gotta say yes, Corey Booker, the most Innovative politician to hit the mainstream has done some outright outrageous things in his career. When we speak of things people like President Lincoln is supposed to have done, this man is doing t today, honesty being the thing in question; far as I can tell anyway. But what I’m here to talk about is his way of generating income for New Jersey through a line of Jewelry that is both rare and awe inspiring.
Corey Booker has launched a line of Jewelry made from guns and bullets gotten from the HIS city’s “gun buyback program’. According to Buzzfeed.com – Booker told Maddow that “a large percentage of the proceeds go to more gun buy-backs in Newark.” (Buzzfeed)
Read the story by following the link and Google… As to Cory Booker, keep exemplifying what the American Politician should strive to be. And thank you for being a great example of what we should do.

Q: Who is Kevin Allen?
A: I’m a writer, a creator. I thrive on writing and creating new worlds, new people, and new nations. Kevin Allen, in essence, is a chaotic mess of entertaining stories that never end and I wish to share that with the world.
Q: What inspired all this; you look so happy when you speak about writing. When did you decide to become a writer?
A: I don’t think I decided to become a writer, I think I was born a writer. I have always been very creative and knew how to craft a story. When I was a child in Jamaica I would travel up and down…
