This made me break down and cry, again.. mahalo kpete.

"We do not know whether the killer of Reverend Pinckney and eight others knew of all this history. But he surely sensed the meaning of his violent act,” he said. “It was an act that drew on a long history of bombs, and arson, and shots fired at churches. Not random, but as a means of control. A way to terrorize and oppress. An act that he imagined would incite fear, and recrimination. Violence and suspicion. An act that he assumed would deepen divisions that would trace back to our nation’s original sin.

“Oh,” he said, the faint traces of a chuckle bubbling deep in his chest. “But God works in mysterious ways.”


Thank you, Greg Howard.

Oh Yeah!

Gorgeous, Peace Nikki! I've seen it like that all lit of in colors at night but not like this

of course!

Mahalo, I put it in my photobucket!

Yeah right.. it means less than nothing to me.. "Trojan Horse" "POSUCS" "not a fan boy.." BFD.

President Obama is reinventing the "lame duck"! LOL Excellent, Rex!

So beautifully, eloquently said, Rex.. Thank you so much!

It is where he lives.. he was elected twice by the People of this Nation to live there..

"The president singled out discrimination facing transgender Americans as an area where more progress needs to be made."

Obama Appoints Transgender Attorney Shannon Minter To White House Commission


Obama administration advocates for transgender people

1. Obama is the first chief executive to say "transgender" in a public speech.

2. Obama is the first to name transgender political appointees.

3. Obama is the first to prohibit job bias against transgender government workers.

4. The first federal civil rights protection for transgender people in U.S. history was a hate crime legislation signed in by Obama.

5. The executive branch has made it easier for transgender people to update their passports, obtain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, get treatment at Veterans' Administration facilities, and seek access to public school restrooms and sports programs.

6. Obama is the only president to invite transgender children to participate in the annual Easter egg roll at the White House.

7. The Office of Personnel Management announced that government-contracted health insurers could start covering the cost of gender reassignment surgeries for federal employees, retirees, and their survivors, which ended a 40-year prohibition.

8. The Department of Health and Human Services reversed a policy that prevented Medicare from financing transgender healthcare services.

9. Obama plans to sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against employees on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

10. The U.S. Education Department extended Title IX, the law that bans gender discrimination in education, to protect transgender students, and President Obama backed that action.

These make up a large part of why Mara Keisling, executive director for the National Center for Transgender Equality said about Obama, "He has been the best president for transgender rights, and nobody else is in second place."
