Tribute To Toya Graham - The Mom Of The Year

Hat/Tip:  Kim Deskins on Face Book for this hilarious cartoon pic. 

On April 28, 2015 I published : "God Bless This Baltimore Mom"  that I hope you will read.  

Well, there is now an update to that article as we have found out the name of this great Mom, who now there seems to be a consensus that she is the Mom of they year.  The name of this single Baltimore Mom of 6 kids is Toya Graham

I found this great pic posted on Kim Deskins Face Book page that the Tales dedicates to Toya Graham, the Mom of the year!

Stay thirsty my friends 

The whole nation appreciates what you did Toya Graham and I say once again God Bless you!

Couldn't agree more! That's exactly how I raised my children. You're in trouble in school, you're in more trouble at home. That young man is blessed to have a Moma who cares.

Child Abuse/Neglect; Is Baltimore Mom Toya Graham Perpetuating Poverty & Prejudice?

Edward A. Flynn, Milwaukee's chief of police, "These communities need police. And they need police not just to be present, but to be active in seeking out criminals."

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled "I", Kendrick Lamar writes, "I've been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent."

In the meantime, who is addressing why many people living in poor American communities are depressed, often venting their anger and frustrations by harming their peaceful neighbors?

Has anyone asked Baltimore resident and "Mom of The Year" Toya Graham if she believes she is partly responsible for the recurring cycle of poverty that harms so many children, including her son Michael who she observed committing a depraved act against peaceful people trying to protect the community from other abused or neglected children?

Will Baltimore mother Toya Graham and the hundreds of moms much like her who I met while providing police services to a Rap Hip Hop influenced Brooklyn, NY community, realize she was young and immature for acting irresponsibly and building a family of six depressed children who have to struggle, instead of having one or two relatively happy, peaceful kids she could more easily provide for, school and supervise?

Does Ms. Graham realize she is complicit in adding to the pain and poverty many Americans of all ages suffer?

Rejecting reality, Toya Graham informs CNN's Anderson Cooper, "At no time is my son a thug."

I understand a mother's desire to protect her child as well as her rep as a good mom, though after this remark, how can anything Ms. Graham offers be viewed as truthful?
