Maleah Davis, the 4-year-old Houston girl who has been missing for 10 days, was reported missing by her caretaker. The caretaker gave a detailed account of what happened. But as the story unraveled, the caretaker becomes the suspect. The child has been missing since May 4th and hasn’t been found yet.
Her mother’s ex-fiancé was taking care of Maleah (pictured above), and said he and the girl were kidnapped by a trio of mysterious men near Houston, Texas. But police are finding more holes in the ex-fiancé’s story — as well as blood in his home and signs of decomposition in his car.

Last week Facebook and Instagram banned, the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from its platform.
The controversial Nation of Islam minister, was among several conservative voices banned from the social media platforms for being “dangerous,” according to Facebook’s ruling.
While there are some extreme voices dominating the social media platform, the same can be said for the voices and images on television. But because the media controls the narrative, they control the platforms.
Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam which is considered a hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center cited Farrakhan as “deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT.” Farrakhan’s Facebook page was deleted and all of its content purged from the social media giant’s servers, along with the social media pages of his religious organization.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Strong women dealwith their day head on without playing victim. They have problems just like everyone else, only they don’t make themselves look pitiful or point fingers. They stand and they deal, they face the world with their head held high because they carry the universe in their heart.
Strong women are independent and can be happy on their own. They may want a man but don’t need a man to solidify them. They can be very happy and fulfilled on their own and do not need a man to give them stability and/or peace in life.
Yet being strong is much more difficult than you think.
Your mental health is crucial on this high to low ride called life. Experiencing any type of hurt or trauma is something we can’t avoid. Sometimes the wounds and the hurt we experince are excruciating to the point that, we must find the strength to open the wounds, stick our hands inside and pull out the core of the pain that is holding on.
Until you heal, you will bleed on other people and continue to live life in a cycle of defeat. Some wounds run deep but in order to heal, you must reveal what has hurt you.
