Drug Dealers The u.s. has frozen more than a half-billion dollars of Afghan/Taliban monies. The consensus is that once the country has been .purged of terrorists., the monies will be used to rebuild the economy of that country. From what I can understand, Afghanistan’s national export is the poppy crop. Now to put this in perspective... The government has seized properties from an international drug dealer and intends to return it once the criminals have been removed. I am absolutely against the drug business (both legal and illegal), but if this is the precedent the government is setting, then all the properties that have been seized in inner city drug raids should be returned to those neighborhoods once the perpetrators have been removed...hmmm Copyright © 2006 G.

FOR OUR CHILDREN “It is easier to build children than it is to repair men.”…Frederick Douglass CAP4KIDS One of the greatest predictors of developmental success for children who are developmentally delayed, is Early Intervention, i.e., the earlier the delay is identified, and the earlier a child is referred to Childlink (under 3 years old) or Elwyn (over 3), the better their long term success. On the www.cap4kids.org/philadelphia website, under Early Intervention (http://www.cap4kids.org/philadelphia/parent_handouts/early_intervention_development.html) , you will find links to these organizations, provider referrals (with BOTH of Childlink's fax numbers on them), and important numbers to contact these organizations.

June 22-24, 2012 Church of the Advocate 1801 Paul Washington Ave. (W. Diamond St.) Philadelphia, PA Why reparations? There are those who ask "Why Reparations? Slavery ended in 1865?" After the passage of the 13Th and 14Th amendments, laws were passed to re-enslave people of African descent through Jim Crow laws. The New Jim Crow is a result of the low-intensity war against the Black community under the guise of a "War on Drugs," in addition to ongoing discrimination, and an extension of the slavery experience for Black people. What can we do: We can begin to work together to define the strategy, plan the approach and implement the solution. One way to do this is to come to Philadelphia in June for the 2012 NCOBRA Conference. Other ways include joining with other groups working on the reparations issue. Organizations from the Nation of Islam to the NAACP have endorsed reparations. Now let's do more than talk the talk, let's walk the walk. We must decide what must be done to reclaim, reconstruct and restore our people to their former greatness. See you in Philadelphia.

Free Library of Philadelphia 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19106 For centuries Rosicrucians have stood for peace. Our motto is: The greatest tolerance within the strictest independence. Today, in these challenging times, we ask that you join us in the work of creating peace. Often people ask us what they can do in times like these. We can apply the Rosicrucian principles developed centuries ago. Members, known and unknown, continue to work towards peace, health and happiness for all beings and our planet. You can participate in this work by directing your thoughts, words and actions towards peace in our world. For example: 1. Dedicate some time each day to visualizing peace. Attune with the Council of Solace every day at noon (local time) sending thoughts of peace, harmony and health to all who request it. 2. Make peace with people in your life--at home, at school, at work. Make a commitment to make peace with someone this month. 3. Participate in your community in ways that model the ideal of peace. 4. Respond peacefully in the next stressful situation in your life. The Rosicrucian Order has been active in the greater Philadelphia Region for over 318 years; since 1694 when a group of Rosicrucians from Europe first arrived on the banks of the Wissahickon River. Since then we have been working in quiet to create a better world and a better understanding of Self Mastership. Come learn about the Rosicrucian Order and our teachings and participate in this exercise on World Peace. Our Open Meeting Topics vary and include: auras, color therapy, meditation, absent healing, visualization, positive thought, and self mastery. May this be the year in which Peace Profound manifests upon our planet. For additional information about our local programs, please visit us at www.rosicrucian.org or call us at (215) 332-4160.

This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a doctor's wife), and I want to share it with you. She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and counter tops. This is what she told me. 'I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleach cost? My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, And most doctors don't tell you about peroxide. Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office? NO!!! Why? because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know better! Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's chlorine, folks! And it was used to kill our troops. Peroxide was invented during WWI in the 20's. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about this: 1 Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use Page 08 The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. – Albert Einstein If you would like to report on a recent community event, feel free to send us a brief account of what happened in document format, and we will share it with our readers.

Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs. 3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters. 4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria. 5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry. 6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide. 7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and Water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will. 8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue. 9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly. 10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually, so it's not a drastic change. 11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help get rid of boils, fungus, or other skin infections. 12.. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary. 13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this.

Another place it's great is in the bathroom, if someone has been careless & has wet on the floor around the toilet & it's begun to smell of urine. Just put some peroxide in a spray bottle & spray. In the blink of any eye all the smell will be gone & the bacteria eliminated! I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner! This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, too.

A pilot, LeBron James, Bill Gates, the Pope, and a pizza delivery man were all in a plane together traveling through stormy conditions. Suddenly, the pilot came running back to the passengers and announced that lightning had hit the plane, and they were going to crash in a matter of minutes. “There are only enough parachutes for four of the five of us,” he announced. “Since I’m the pilot, I get one!” After saying this, the pilot grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane. “I’m the world’s greatest athlete,” proclaimed LeBron James. “This world needs great athletes, so I must live.” LeBron James then grabbed a parachute and leaped out of the plane. “I’m the smartest man in the world,” bragged Bill Gates. “The world needs smart men, so I must also live!” Bill Gates grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane. At this point, the Pope began to speak. “I have lived a long life compared to you, and you may take the last parachute. I will go down with the plane.” Pizza delivery man says “You don’t have to stay in the plane! The world’s smartest man jumped out of the plane with my backpack.” (Kathy Parsons is a regular contributor.)

Empress Phile' Chionesu, returned from a fact finding, exploratory, and Movement building expedition that successfully resulted in an exciting and powerful collaboration with the Republic of Benin, West Africa. This historic visit, which officiated the launching of several major and long awaited "next step" operations of the Universal MW Movement, specifically the MWM "Africa Ancestral, Freedom, & Self- Determination Journey" 2012 Project, also served as the first of several "Repentance, Solidarity, and Reconciliation " dialogs and initiatives that has been uniquely designed to begin an incredible process to pro- actively connect, during 2012-2013, Africans born in North America with African countries located in the Western Region; thus furthering and stabilizing meaningful relationships and productivity for all concerned.

And now armed with a well designed international program that is directly linked to countries throughout the African Diaspora a greater view and manifestation of the true MWM vision and holistic strategy can be administered and witnessed. Never before has there been a extensively serious and diverse major project structured and presented, internationally, that specifically addresses the issues, concerns, and interest of women and girls of African descent worldwide. The Million Woman March being the largest gathering in the world of women anywhere ever was not only designed (and demonstrated its capabilities) to do things such as this, but much much more. In 1997, MWM set the tone with its "out of the box" unconventional and groundbreaking "NU Grassroots Tactical and Organizing Systems" (TM) This year's visits to Benin, (and the upcoming trips to Ghana, Togo, and possibly Nigeria), will not only further establish the present and protracted mission and platform that was envisioned at the time of MWM's original conception and, of course, the new revelations and subsequent developments that have occurred during the past 15 years, but the upcoming visits will, assure, undoubtedly, a dramatic shift in the present stagnating and destructive paradigms hindering real global African advancement, sustainability, and Unity. With the Republic of Benin's hosting of the National MWM US delegation that included, of course, MWM Founder and President General Empress Chi, along with MWM Special Projects Coordinator for Arts and Culture Development, Sis. Wanda Dickerson (Co-Founder of the Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble), and Roger and Rudy Frances, (of the IGI Circus International Entertainment and Promotions) members of the MWM Special Projects International Logistics Team, a genuine "evolutionary relationship" has been set in motion and as such will provide a variety of "from the grassroots through the glass ceiling" incentives and opportunities while demonstrating the creativity, beauty and greatness of the Mother of Civilization. (Africa) Press Conferences to provide a more in depth report on the visit to Benin/Dahomey, other upcoming MWM programs and Special Projects, and to assist in the establishment of National MWM Coordinating Teams and MWM Chapters will be held in Philly, PA and Camden, New Jersey on June 19, 2012 .
