Valedictorian Larissa Martinez said in her graduation speech: “I’m undocumented”
You have to read what this very brave young lady said as Valedictorian at her graduation. Her courageous speech surprised everyone, and she was bright in saving her secret for a “punch line “at the end of her speech.
America was founded on the principles that all people have the same rights.
She made a factual statement about Trump, about “his wall built on hatred”… and I give her a standing ovation for that one.
I personally feel Trump should be thrown out of the political race based on his racist, anti-American view points and his repeat, tasteless racial generalizations.
I cannot believe how easily and quickly I made friends with Larissa Martinez on Facebook after searching for her.
We talked back and forth using the Instant messaging app and over 80,000 were searching to find her or talking about her there.
I wrote this on her profile page, and I’m pleased with the words I wrote so I share it with you here.
“CONGRATULATIONS for your excellence in your academics and also in your bravery to stand up and disclose that our immigration system I’d broken and also about saying that Trump us building a walk out of hatred. You are so astute and you are going to go far in this world. You already have! I am so happy we became friends so quickly here. If you should ever want to make your opinions heard on a wide scale, my blog Totally Inspired Mind has a wide readership, and you can send me your story and I will air it to 100 countries. I have a loudspeaker to the world.
God bless you Larissa Martinez. You are one extraordinary young lady!
I am happy I tuned on to CNN this morning and read your story!”-

To all the veterans past and present Paulette Le Pore Motzko salutes your sacrifices-physical and mental and I know from talking to my veteran friends, veterans don’t call themselves heroes, but you are the backbone of the USA,and our ever watchful protector like a lighthouse on the darkest night.
God bless my dad Ernest Carl Le Pore, and my uncle Robert Stewart who are both lookin down on me in heaven who both served The United States Air Force.

The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson.
I have one of his books and found it from in an antique store years ago.
He wrote several books and was a very good writer. This one is in public domain and I found it on Google Books, the cold Google Play Books.
You can read some of his inaugural addresses on here and you can find them in the table of contents. I thought if I’m the only one on WordPress to write about him and to remember the day then so be it. If you’re in school learning history this is exceptional.
Always look on other Google Play Books or LibriVox audiobooks before you buy one! Chances are you can find them on one or the other for a greatly reduced price because it’s an ebook.
As you’ll see even though he lived in the 1700’s, the truth still resonates in his words today, even more so to me. I wish he was president today because he would have listened to the voice of the American people, who are in essence America. He would have adhered to the Constitution the United States of America I’m not taking prepaid vacations all over the world like the president we have today.
He helped shape Freedom as we know it today in the United States of America by being the author of the Declaration of Independence. He helped define Freedom as we know it, as well as all of the military people throughout the years who have made sacrifices and died for it.
I hope and pray our next leader does a better job than what’s in there now.

As I have been adding videos, categorizing old posts so none say “uncategorized” and the other laborious things involving keeping this up and running and working….I just got word that there were 61 new followers here.
I will say I am so pleased that I can give joy to so many people and that my readers think that what I write educates them, inspires them and shows them new ways of thinking. I changed the format of the site today. What do you think of the changes I made?
Until I put up the next post that I wrote yesterday at Starbucks, about 2000 words, I bid you all a wonderful evening. It is raining here in southern California.
Still looking for a place that I can afford.
I also contacted my attorney to get a meeting with the mayor of Los Angeles to so I can discuss issues like taking the CA Budget and increasing the allocated funds for the disabled community like myself about 50 million dollars. That would provide the voucher I desperately need now to afford a one bedroom place somewhere in Orange County now. I would be helping about 200,000 other disabled people who don’t have the fortitude or courage or persistence I do, if I am successful. Everything I have ever done in my life I have been success at.
When I accomplish something in life I picture me shooting a basketball over the top of the moon. I figure if I come in a little next to the top of the moon, I am still doing damn good. Things need to be changed in Orange County, and since Orange County doesn’t have a mayor but it has needs, I will begin there.
I will be writing a petition showing what will be done with the money that I am asking for, but let’s put it this way. I haven’t driven for nearly 15 years and have seen countless disabled people in wheel chairs who are homeless! One person like that is too many! I have seen a dozen on a regular basis and talked to them and heard their stories. It is TRAGIC and they are American Citizens who have civil rights and deserve to live in integrity with roofs over their heads, a place to sleep and a pillow under their heads, not to mention some where to wash themselves and take care of themselves properly. WE have the money in CA to take care of everybody. The money is there period. It needs to be allocated differently and maybe some people’s salaries need to be cut a little to take care of everybody and let everybody live in dignity.
Veterans are another sore issue with me, and my dad was one and crippled in a wheel chair needing 24 hour assistance in the end of his life, ending last September 2012. I have bought care packages for at least a dozen Vets who proudly served this country to end up crippled in a wheelchair forgotten as though they don’t exist! That is outrageous. What kind of country are we that we don’t care of the very people who served and protected all of us?
These are other issues I will be discussing with the Mayor of Los Angeles. I am a good writer, I can write the speeches I give, and have been on television before using teleprompters on a commercial I did for Orange County News Channel when I was the Director for The Epilepsy Foundation. It was the first commercial produced and aired about epilepsy in over 50 years.
I am a catalyst for Positive Change. I never wanted to get into politics but I care about the big picture and don’t see things through the eye of a pin like so many congress people who are rich and don’t know the real life struggles of day to day.
I know I suffered because a lot of the way we do things in this country, which in many respects are wrong and unfair to single men, single women like myself, and giving priority to women with kids, acting as though every one else doesn’t exist or isn’t important. I want to see everyone treated the same with the same opportunities no matter what color their skin or if they have a child or how much they have their bank account.
I have ideas for a Health Care System that I want to propose to President Obama, but it will take a trip to the White House to show it to him.
It is worth it.
I could change the lives of millions of people if I did. Someone has to care to begin with. That person is going to be Antonio Viliagosi who I sent repeat faxes to with no contact back. My attorney called him and I am sure now he knows I mean business.
I wish that the most important things were the easiest to obtain in life, but they aren’t.
“The open mouth gets fed” as they say or “the one that makes the most noise gets heard.”
I know that when the mayor sees me, and talks to me, it will be harder to forget me. Then things begin to happen to change the way things are…..for the better.
have had Vietnamese men at Starbucks when discussing politics and promoting English in this county and opening the job market up for everybody who can do the job, hiring interpreters for those who need it
