Congratulations professirx!

We got some great news last night from iReporter Richard Gaskin, who's better known here as professirx. His non-profit group, I Believe Inc., was awarded a $24,000 grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve foundation.

 

Richard is a filmmaker and musician, who has shot music videos with rapper Ice T and other stars and has shared almost 300 stories with iReport.com. He's also paralyzed and has been in a wheelchair since a 1987 spinal cord injury.

 

Richard founded I Believe Inc. to spread the word about efforts to cure paralysis and other degenerative diseases. Keep up the great work, Richard!

 

We also want to invite you to share your successes with us so we can tell the community know about them.

It’s interesting to watch the HealthCare debate. We are getting to understand the complexities of the racial dynamics in this country. Beneath the surface of this debate, the anger, the fear for the unknown, it’s now becoming clear why this country is the only developed country in the world that do not provide healthcare and education to “all” of it’s people. The answer is simple: RACE. Yes, Race is the problem. All the fights, emotional bursts, tears, screams at town hall meetings boils down to one word: RACE. The day this country transcends this, it will become a better place for all of it’s citizens. Till then, we pretend that it’s a united country, but deep beneath the surface of it’s skin, the country has not transcended it’s racial divides. It’s a continuing battle not just on the streets of town hall meetings, but also in the depth of the hearts and souls of these people. They now have a Black president, and many people of this country are struggling to deal with it, some not quite understanding how they got to this place. Fighting from without and fears from within is putting this country into a racial convulsion. We pray for God’s will to be revealed to all these faces of mankind. Till then GOD BLESS AMERICA !!

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
