America Refuse to be Intimidated by Any Terrorist

           In less than two days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation released the pictures of the two suspects wanted in the Boston Marathon Shooting, the streets of Boston are safe again.
            Around 10:30 p.m on April 18, 2013 the suspects ambushed and killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Officer Sean Collier which triggers a massive police operation in Boston.

            26- years-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev  was identified has suspect #1 and his 19-years-old brother Dzhokar Tsarnaev was identified has suspect #2. The suspects led law enforcement officers on a high speed chase along the streets of Boston, shooting and throwing explosives.
Tamerlan Tsarnev died in a gun fight and more than 12 hours later his brother was captured hiding in a boat. The suspects are naturalized American citizens from Chechnya. Their father who now resides in Russia pleaded with his son earlier in the day to surrender peacefully and also said that, “all hell will break loose” in the United States if police kill him.
          In addition, their aunt Maret Tsarnaev told reporters from her home in Canada that she believes the pictures are stage and she demanded to see the evidences from the FBI that her nephews placed the bombs that killed three and injured 141 people.
In contrast, their uncle Ruslan Tsarni said that his nephews had brought shame to his family and ethnicity. “It is an atrocity, we are devastated,” Tsarni said “we are shocked.” Tsarni said that he has not spoken to his nephews in years.
            On April 15, 2013 these men tried to infringe upon Freedom, after a few scary days in Boston and around the United States of America. The people of Boston went out to the streets to celebrate and applauded the work of law enforcement officers.

Does a Posthumous Pardon Really Served Any Purpose a Century Later After injustice Has Been Done?


By: Tomica Kipp
A team of activists, lawmakers and celebrities believes it does. Jack Johnson is the world’s first African- American boxing champion born to ex-slaves in Texas.

            Johnson’s career began at the height of the Jim Crow Era of segregation in the United States of America. A period when African-Americans weren’t allowed to attended the same schools as white and play sports with whites. In addition, Blacks and White weren’t allowed to consort.
            In 1912, Johnson was arrested with Lucille Cameron; a white woman who would later became his wife, for violating the Mann Act, a law that had passed two years earlier in response to morality. He was sentenced to a year and a day in prison.
            The petition to grant Johnson a posthumous pardon began nine years ago, Sen. John McCain said, “As we look back on our nation’s history, the Jack Johnson case is a shameful stain, apparent to all. Rectifying this injustice is long overdue.”
President George W. Bush didn’t grant a pardon and with the election of the first African American president, many are hopeful that he will get a pardon.
Johnson died in a car crash in North Carolina in 1946; he was 68- years old. It is unlikely that he will ever receive a pardon, because posthumous pardons are seldom issue and the Obama’s Administrations have refuse to comment on the issue.

For generation after generations women were told that they should have children before their 40’s  but in today’ society , more and more women are choosing careers first and diapers changing later.
            With technological advancement, some women are opting to do in vitro fertilization; others are choosing adoption or surrogacy. At the youthful age of 46, Oscar winner Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child.
According to TMZ the actress is three months pregnant and is expecting a baby boy with French Actor Olivier Martinez, 47.
Today, 40 seems like the new 20s when it comes to motherhood, according to the New England Centenarian Study conducted by Boston University Medical Center, the study found that women who give birth after 40 were four times more likely to live to a 100 or longer than women who gave birth at a younger age.
