This I don’t know her name but this is truly amazing!  #blackwomen #BlackGirlMagic  Her name is Swabra Swaleh Breik, and there is more to the story.  She saved the mother and the baby. Her son was sick Her partner wasn’t available, working in a hospital a long way away Her co-workers were all also working, over-worked. If she didn’t perform the surgery the mother and/or the baby would have died.

She saved the mother and the baby.

Her partner wasn’t available, working in a hospital a long way away

Swabra spoke out over the feeling of wanting to give up
And despite pushing hard to help people and still get paid a fair wage and obviously saving lives even in tough situations… people have decided to criticize her.

Persecution against any group for religious beliefs or race is illegal and unconstitutional in the U.S. Period This isn't just an attack on Muslims or refugees -this is an attack on all humans and in particular, the ones most in need of protection. Right now, worldwide, 28 million children have been uprooted by conflict, driven from their homes by violence and terror. Children know no nations and no borders; those who survive will grow up to follow the lead of those who take them in. Do we show them love and acceptance? Or allow them to fend for themselves, vulnerable to guerrilla groups that will only teach them to perpetuate this cycle of violence? We have to be vigilant about letting bigotry and hatred creep into the mainstream or be rationalized under the guise of "protecting our people." If we accept blanket targeting towards Muslims, we can all be sure that other minority groups won't be far behind, whether it's by closing borders to other supposed "dangerous" groups or trampling their human rights in other ways. Muslims are our people. They are human beings with children, needs and dreams like the rest of us. Not all Muslims are terrorists, and by the way, not all terrorists are Muslims. Latinos are our people. They don't come to "steal jobs" _ they come seeking an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and for their children, which is what the U.S. has always prided itself on representing: opportunities. They are a huge part of the workforce that has contributed to making America the great country it is today African Americans are our people. After enduring centuries of oppression and the countless human atrocities that were committed against them, after fighting for civil rights, it's devastating that racial profiling is still happening and their civil liberties are still being threatened. I could go on naming groups ad infinitum, but the point is, we shouldn't be singling out aroups and differentiating themm by race, class or religion, because according to the Constitution, all of that is irrelevant to their rights as a citizen. Anybody who goes to the U.S. and chooses to raise that flag and uphold those principles is "our people." Thanks to social networks, we all have a platform to use our voice today. For every post l see with hateful language, I see others that lift my spirits and reassure me that we haven't totally lost our way. Lawyers in airports offering free counsel to refugees, New Yorkers banding together on the subway to erase neo-Nazi vandalism, doctors volunteering their time to give free advice to women that need it, and citizen activists marching for equal rights for all. Let's keep tipping the scales in favor of "liberty and justice for all," keep using our voices to lift up others and speak out for those whose voices have been stripped from them. I applaud all of you who have spoken out against the ban keep up the good fight and never back down. shakisabell: Shakira’s article from TIME http://time.com/4665295/shakira-donald-trump-ban/ Shakira is so eloquent.

 Thanks to social networks, we all have a platform to use our
 voice today. For every post l see with hateful language, I see
 others that lift my spirits and reassure me that we haven't
 totally lost our way. Lawyers in airports offering free counsel
 to refugees, New Yorkers banding together on the subway
 to erase neo-Nazi vandalism, doctors volunteering their
 time to give free advice to women that need it, and citizen
 activists marching for equal rights for all.
 Let's keep tipping the scales in favor of "liberty and justice
 for all," keep using our voices to lift up others and speak out
 for those whose voices have been stripped from them. I
 applaud all of you who have spoken out against the ban
 keep up the good fight and never back down.

In Favor: Stanford Swimmer Who Raped Unconscious Woman Gets Short Sentence Because Jail Would Have a Severe Impact on Him By Dayna Evans Brock Allen Turner, the former Stanford swimmer who was discovered raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on campus in January of last year, will be sentenced to six months in county jail and probation. Prosecutors had recommended that Turner receive a sentence of six years, but judge Aaron Persky determined that Turner's age 20 - and lack of criminal history warranted him a much shorter sentence. "A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him," Persky said at Turner's sentencing on Thursday. "I think he will not be a danger to Brock Allen Turner. Photo: Stanford University others." Meanwhile, the 23-year-old victim in the rape case, who had had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit at the time of the rape and who had no memory of the attack, gave important testimony at the trial. "You took away my worth, my privacv, my energv, my time, my safetv, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today," she said, reportedly directly to Turner. "I am a human being who has been irreversibly hurt." And yet it's Turner who would be severely impacted in his sentencing?

In Favor: Stanford Swimmer Who Raped Unconscious
 Woman Gets Short Sentence Because Jail
 Would Have a Severe Impact on Him
 By Dayna Evans
 Brock Allen Turner, the former
 Stanford swimmer who was
 discovered raping an unconscious
 woman behind a dumpster on
 campus in January of last year, will
 be sentenced to six months in county
 jail and probation. Prosecutors had
 recommended that Turner receive a
 sentence of six years, but judge Aaron
 Persky determined that Turner's age
 20 - and lack of criminal history
 warranted him a much shorter
 sentence.
 "A prison sentence would have a
 severe impact on him," Persky said at
 Turner's sentencing on Thursday. "I
 think he will not be a danger to
 Brock Allen Turner. Photo: Stanford University
 others." Meanwhile, the 23-year-old victim in the rape case, who had had a
 blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit at the time of the rape and
 who had no memory of the attack, gave important testimony at the trial.
 "You took away my worth, my privacv, my energv, my time, my safetv, my
 intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today," she said, reportedly
 directly to Turner. "I am a human being who has been irreversibly hurt."
 And yet it's Turner who would be severely impacted in his sentencing?
 Right.

In Favor: Greetings Brentwood. We would just like to inform you that we will NOT be using your services for out wedding My fiancé and I support traditional marriage between a man and a woman and don't want to our money going to places that supports otherwise. Secondly I would like to inquire about how we can get our retainer back from you. Thank you Sent from mobile Wow, I'm not really sure what to say here. I would say this disappoints me, but I actually find this to be a good thing because our company now would now not like to work with you as well. It's not that because you have a different view from us, but it's because, since you don't like and support gay marriage, no one else should be able to have it. That's like me not liking broccoli, and demanding that everyone else in the world should not have broccoli either! If you're not in favor of gay marriage that's fine, don't marry a woman. Personally, I was taught not to judge others and to love everyone else. So I will try not to judge you here and say anything more as to my opinion of you. At Brentwood Photography we see love in all forms. Now as far as your retainer goes, I hope you'll read the first article in the contract you signed stating that this retainer is nonrefundable. But don't you worry, I'm not going to keep it! Because of this conversation, I have decided to donate your $1500 to GLAD, A group created to help and support gay rights. So let me be the first to say thank you very much for your donation and support for this great cause! I couldn't have done it without your money.
