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.
Tonight’s conversation is a call for single women to STOP leaving their defenseless minor children in the hands of boyfriends and/or other males who are not the child’s biological fathers.
21 years ago James Byrd’s gruesome death shocked the nation and devastated his family. Byrd was viciously killed by John William King and two accomplices in Jasper, Texas in 1998., now tonight the ringleader in that murder to set to be executed.
Today Wednesday April 24, King, 44, is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection in a Texas state prison.
King and his accomplices, Shawn Berry and Lawrence Brewer, encountered Byrd walking home after leaving a friend’s house in the early morning hours on June 7, 1998. Berry, who was driving, was familiar with Byrd from around town. He offered to drive Byrd home.
But instead of taking him home, the men took him to a secluded area on the outskirts of town. There they brutally beat him, and urinated and defecated on him before chaining him by the ankles to the back of their pickup truck.
They then dragged Byrd for nearly 3 miles along a paved road.
King and his accomplices are white. Byrd was Black. His death dominated the nation’s headlines for weeks and led to changes in the way local and federal governments prosecute hate crimes.
The details of Byrd’s murder are horrific and grueling but tonight we’re going to talk about it on “Conversations Of A Sistah“.
The #MeToo movement, with many local and international alternatives, is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault.
The movement spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. Unlike many kinds of social-media activism, it isn’t a call to action or the beginning of a campaign, culminating in a series of protests, speeches and events. The movement is about enough being enough and holding those individuals responsible for their indiscretions.
There are other forms of harassment than sexual, and we should not approve of any of them. But the focus on sexual harassment is dangerous, because the term is so broad and undefined. So far the #metoo movement has come down to anything that a woman says is indoctrinated to see it as she says without proof. This is a good way to destroy relations between the genders.
Submission is about support. Women have not been called to submit to all men, even a fiance.
If a man is being honest and trustworthy, she will honor and respect that man regardless of their status.
Our mentors used to tell us “you are single until you get married” and submission only comes when you get married. So until you get married, there’s huge bits and pieces of yourself which shouldn’t be given away for the simple reason you are single!
What is submission anyway? And how should we submit in our relationships?
Some conversations matter more than others in relationships. You connect and fall in love by talking. But what conversations should you have with your partner to know if your love will last—through challenges, surprises, joy, and pain?
And if you’ve been in a relationship for years, what conversations should you have to reinvigorate the connection and passion that first brought you together, but may have become routine?
A happy relationship isn’t the result of having lots of things in common—as we often think. The key to a happy and successful relationship have many levels. It comes from knowing how to address your core differences in a way that supports each other’s needs and dreams.
Every strong relationship is a result of a never-ending conversation between partners.
