Stop the violence!
Written July 12,2014 6:30 pm by Kimberly Ferguson
Every day a person is shot.
The madness has got to stop!
We can't depend on the cops,if we do another person gets popped.
They will be stopped!
They use a gun,their troubles have just begun!
Not gonna let the devil in he is not gonna win!
These criminals need medication,education!
People keep hesitating,procrastinating, on a plan,and saying stuff,but never taking a stand,saying they had enough!
Saying life is rough,hurting but being tough!
They don't keep criminals in jail,giving them bail!
How many more people have to die to get you to reply?
We cry but when will you try?
We have to rely on Jesus!
Some people don't care but you better prepare and be aware,criminals are everywhere!
Bullets can fly high in the sky!
The criminals are on drugs,wanting to be thugs!
We have to deal with their addiction!
Then they won't get a conviction!
They not in a right state of mind,they blind,they commit crimes,they don't mind doing time.
They play violent games,and you wonder whose the blame!
It's a shame!
They watch movies that glamorize this,they want to be in gangs,then slang and bang and hang with men just like them! They want to belong,keep doing wrong,then in jail singing a sad song!
They pretend to be strong!
They need male role models,mentors,so they can eventually take a detour!
They only want to fake it but will take it and hope to make it!
If they had a vision,they would never go to prison! They want negative attention,and recognition.
They mom did the best she could,hoping they would turn out great,its never too late,but you choose your fate,you can clean your slate!
It affects the whole state,I dedicate this to the victims who lost children and grandchildren! I pray for you! You will get through!
Always thinking of you!
America we can't depend on the cops,they can't solve this!
We need to all pray for each other,and support our sisters and brothers!
It affects all of us!
Let's show love,and help in anyway we can! It's not something that Jesse Jackson or Revered Al Sharpton,or Bishops can do without us getting involved!
Think about them,pray for them!
I will keep writing,and fighting!
We all can do something,no matter how big or small!
God bless you,and keep you!

Book Description: Ladies, are you tired of picking Mr. Wrong and finding yourself in an abusive unhealthy relationships? Are you drained physically, emotionally, and mentally from being lied to, used, and cheated on?
Are you upset at yourself for exchanging sex for gifts and money, and being treated like a piece of property? Are you tired of saying, “I need a man” because you believe that everyone who is in a relationship is happy? Do you still believe that having a man, even if he’s a dead beat, is better than being alone?
I went from one man, onto the next one. I chose men over my kids, thinking this is the ‘good life.’ I kept saying I’ll do better next time and hated myself when I didn’t.
Ladies it’s time to wake up, grow up, get smart, and face reality. This is not the way God intended His daughters to live.
I lived the life-style described above. That was the Old Kim.
My name is Kimberly Ferguson. I’m thirty-seven years old and a survivor of hurricane Katrina. In fact it was the hurricane that saved my life and this is my story.
