Prayers Up: More than 300 people are dead and 600 people are still missing, according to Red Cross officials, from the flash flooding that led to landslides in the west African nation of Sierra Leone on Monday. The death toll will continue to rise. Sixty of the dead are children. People still believed to be buried in the rubble, as the rescue operations continue.
"The magnitude of the destruction as a result of the disaster is such that the number of victims in the community who may not come out alive may likely exceed the number of dead bodies already recovered," Charles Mambu, a civil society activist and resident of one affected area, Mount Sugar Loaf, told The Associated Press." "A hillside in the Regent area collapsed early on Monday following heavy rains, leaving many houses completely covered in mud, the BBC reports. A BBC reporter at the scene says many people may have been caught asleep when the mudslide occurred. According to weather.com meteorologists, the area has seen nearly 20 inches more rain than average over the last 30 days."
Place the mouse on the collage above and swipe when the smaller arrows appear. People are still digging through the mud to find loved ones. A morgue located at the national capital of Freetown is overflowed with bodies, The Associated Press reports. "Mambu told the AP that two people were brought out alive from the debris Monday evening. Another challenge for Sierra Leone is, preventing a disease outbreak, due to the water being contaminated by decomposing bodies. Praying for all involved. Affected.
We are praying for all affected and Heather Heyer family. Please watch the video below for more information and and clips of these sad events. Also see a collage below of images from the rally.
Written by the couple daughter and photographer. "Imagine one of the most important days of your life coming and going and you not having the photos you thought you would once it was over. That's exactly what happened to my parents, Timothy and Jennifer Bing. It was their wedding day, July 7, 1979 and the excitement was at an all time high. Being on a budget, after just purchasing their first family home together, they decided to have friends document their wedding day instead of hiring a professional wedding photographer. The day was amazing just as they hoped it would. They felt confident in their decision as they witnessed friends and family capturing the day as it unfolded on their own 35mm cameras.
She continues: "In the following days, the newlyweds dropped off the film for processing at Rodman’s Pharmacy. Unbeknownst to them, they would never see those images. The very next day, the pharmacy caught fire. Jennifer would never be able to frame a photo of her daddy, who died of a heart attack 2 weeks following her wedding day, walking her down the aisle. Timothy and Jennifer’s children and grandchildren would never be able to experience their big day while rummaging through old photos or looking at a portrait from July 7, 1979 framed on the mantle."
"As a 38th Anniversary gift, I surprised them with a “bride and groom formal” session. It was in God’s plans all along to have the couple relive their wedding day formals despite being almost 40 years later. Happy Anniversary to my parents.

Road Rage: White Driver Who Executed 18-Year-Old African American Teen With One Bullet To The Head Was Arrested
Beautiful 18-year-old Bianca Nikol Roberson of WestChester, Pennsylvania went to the mall to shop for clothes for college. On her way home, driving southbound, she merged into a lane, not knowing that a pickup truck behind her was merging at the same time. The white male truck driver became enraged, pulled out his gun, pulled up to her car and shot her in the head.
After executing her, he was seen speeding down the highway. Roberson lost control of her vehicle and crashed in the woods. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Police on the scene thought she simply lost control, but soon saw where she was shot.
Family members told ABC6 "she was on the way home from the mall, where she was shopping for college clothes with her mother and grandmother. She was a good girl, honor roll student, looking forward to going to college,' her father, Rodney Roberson, explained as he held back tears. Her brother said she was 'headed for greatness'. She graduated high school three weeks ago.
The moment both vehicles attempted to merge.
28-year-old David Desper, was arrested at his Pennsylvania home at 2am Sunday morning and charged with the murder of Roberson. The gun used in the killing of Roberson and the red pickup truck were also confiscated. To Roberson, we are so sorry this happened to you Beautiful soul. We are praying for your family. To Desper and anyone reading this, If your life is that messed up, seek help. Do not allow the stresses of life to ever take you to this level of rage. Threw your entire life away for something as simple as screaming in the car, punch something, but go on with your day. You've lost your life and ended hers. So sad.
This might have also been a hate crime. An all around terrible situation. Praying for the family.
Ariana Grande is back in Manchester for the One Love Manchester concert at the United Stadium 130,000 fans were in attendance to watch Ariana Grande hit the stage after the terrorist attack at her show in Manchester a few weeks ago. She also made time to stop by the hospital to visit survival, Lily Harrison, Jaden Farrell-Mann and more. Grande was joined by
Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay Miley Cyrus Pharrell Williams Usher, Robbie Williams Little Mix the
Black Eyed Peas and more. Sniffer dogs were seen patrolling, making sure everyone is safe. According to BBC worldwide, "audiences in countries including Australia, China, Brazil, USA, Mexico, Italy and New Zealand were able to tune into the star-studded charity event thanks to the global simulcast." That's awesome. All proceeds goes towards the survivals and those who did not make it family, funeral cost, hospital bills and more. Fans were seen already in tents, days ahead of schedule. Read more on the attacks here. Watch all performances below.
The Black Eyed Peas were there minus Fergie. Ariana too her place for the performance.
Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande vocals were on point and Cyrus lower range during their duet was amazing.
Watch Justin Bieber performance below.
God Bless you all for participating.
Most are aware that a few days ago, what was suppose to be a great night of celebration, soon turned deadly at singer Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. Fans were prepared for an amazing show, but after the show, while leaving the concert, a Suicide bomber striked the Manchester Arena leaving 22 dead and over 50 injured.
Devastated Grande embraced and kissed her Love Mac Miller for a while, something she came close to never being able to do again and something those at her concert who didn't make it out alive will never be able to do. We are all sure that although distraught, she is grateful for her life and probably now see life differently and will definitely live life to the best of her ability because she could've been one of those beautiful souls, gone too soon. Praying for all affected, including Ariana Grande.
Image of the bomber and his family were released.
We are praying for all affected. See more images below and to watch more clips, place your mouse over the larger clip and click the smaller arrow to swipe and see more.
Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, did not make it. Her mother, Lisa, was critically injured. Although she's fighting for her life, she is aware that her baby-girl did not survived.
18-year-old Georgina Callander life also ended at the Manchester terror attack. The image above with Ariana Grande, was taken two years ago.
One of the most rewarding job is being a mother. With that comes with taking your children to places that they cannot drive themselves. Mothers Lisa Lees (left) and Alison Howe (right), did just that. They took their children to see their someone they admire and ended up dying, outside the Manchester Arena in Manchester as they waited for their children.
Martyn Hett, from Stockport, also did not make it. These are a few of the those who did not make it out alive. Gone, but never forgotten. Praying for the families and all affected.
On Easter Sunday, 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. a retired foundry worker, a father of nine children, 14 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren was taking his usual daily walks in northeast Cleveland, on E 93rd St, blocks from Lake Erie to collect aluminum cans. Something he frequently do, during his daily walks.
Godwin Sr, was confronted by a disgruntle man known as Steve “Stevie Steve” Stephens while walking down the street in Cleveland.
While on Facebook Live, he said, “Find me somebody I’m about to kill, I’m gonna kill this guy right here." He gets out of his car and said, “The older dude," walked up to Godwin, asks him to “do me a favor” by saying “Joy Lane.” Stephens adds, “Joy Lane—she’s the reason this is about to happen to you.” Godwin responded, "I don't know nobody. He was executed. Godwin was picked at random. We are praying for his family. After the killing, Stephens calmly walked back to his car and drove off, while continuing his conversation on Facebook live.
Before killing Mr. Godwin, Stephens went on a Facebook Live rant about his life. Ironically he works with people with Mental Health issues. He talked about his ex love Joy and how she got him hooked on gambling at the casino image above. He filmed his live session while driving the white Ford Fusion, image above. Stephens was upset that he lost everything due to gambling and after losing it all, he was kicked out of the home he shared with Joy and she left him. Life happens all the time, doesn't give anyone the right to end that frustration, by killing innocent people. Although Stephens said that he killed 13 people on Easter Sunday. Godwin is the only confirmed death at the hands of Stephens.
Stephens ex-love, Joy Lane who is now in protective police custody wrote in a text to CBS, 'We had been in a relationship for several years. I am sorry that all of this has happened. My heart and prayers goes out to the family members of the victim(s). Steve really is a nice guy. He is generous with everyone he knows. He was kind and loving to me and my children. This is a very difficult time for me and my family. Please respect our privacy at this time." She's an Air Force veteran. Stephens blames Joy for his behavior.
Godwin Jr. Spoke to the press. Speaking of his dad, he said his favorite hobby was fishing. His son also said that "his family is still processing what happened and waiting for police to arrest Stephens."
Ironically as stated previously, Stephens is a Case manager at Beech Brook, which is a children's mental health facility in Cleveland. He blames his work environment for driving him to kill people in that video, as well. For 165 years, Beech Brook has been serving Northeast Ohio's most vulnerable children. Today as a leading behavioral health agency, Beech Brook will serve more than 18,000 children and families this year,' the company's website says. Beech Brook touches the lives of children, teens and families through an array of services ranging from prevention, education and early intervention to community-based programming to strengthen and support youth and families."
The amazing organization spokeswoman Nancy Kortemeyer told WOIO-TV, "We are shocked and horrified and we don't know anything more about it. We hope and pray that he is arrested as soon as possible and we hope and pray for a resolution quickly."
Press Conference: Police are still searching for Stephens. "An aggravated murder warrant was issued for his arrest late Sunday night, stating that in addition to those in Ohio, residents of the states of Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan are asked to be on alert. Cleveland State University has issued a shelter in place, a campus spokesman told. The university also reportedly sent out a text messages to its students which read: 'Cleveland police are searching for a murder suspect last seen south of Interstate 90 in the area of E93rd.'
He was last seen in shirt above.
We are all hoping that Stephens surrender. Many feel that they cannot find him because he killed himself. Only time will tell. Our condolences to the family.
Prayers Up to all affected by the terrorist attacked that occurred at the House of Parliament in London yesterday. One story that really stood out to us was that of Melissa Cochran, 46 and her husband Kurt Cochran, 56 of Utah. The two have been married for twenty-five years and decided that they deserved a major vacation to celebrate their lasting love. They chose to go on a tour of Europe. On that tour, they visited Germany, Ireland, Scotland and London was their last stop. Mr. Cochran had no clue that his last stop would become literal, as he was one of the victims yesterday. Yesterday was another normal day in beautiful London. Everyday people from that part of town and tourist from other parts of the world came to enjoy their day and walk on the bridge. It all changed when terrorist Khalid Masood ran his Hyundai 4x4 into the crowd and jumped out with a knife attacking innocent bystanders.
Kurt Cochran, "was thrown over Westminster Bridge onto a walkway beneath it, when terrorist Khalid Masood mowed him down in his Hyundai 4x4." Cochran died.
His wife Melissa, was seen holding on to a stranger, in shock as blood pour from her head on the pavement. She survived and is currently in a UK hospital being treated for a broken leg and rib. Knowing that London was their last stop on their tour and their departure date should have been today, is even more heartbroken. Their family released a statement: "Our family is heartbroken to learn of the death of our son-in-law, Kurt W. Cochran, who was a victim of Wednesday's terrorist attack in London. Kurt was a good man and a loving husband to our daughter and sister Melissa." "They were in Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and were scheduled to return to the United States on Thursday,' Mrs Cochran's parents said."
"A mother (image above), who was on her way to collect her children from school was also killed.
Policeman standing guard in New Palace Yard was also stabbed and died at the scene.
Authors Note: We can't ask God why, but what are the odds that after 25 years of marriage, you decide to go on vacation in another country and your life ends there. The good moment to take out of such tragegy is that they enjoyed 25 years of love with each other and from their trip, it shows that they took moments to live life, see the world and for that we are happy. Praying for their families and all affected. Terrorist Khalid Masood, was shot and killed.
