November is Native American Heritage month.https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/native-americans-day

Below is a poem I wrote Honoring the Native American Tribes.

I honored them last November 10th and it rained with lightning and thunder all day November 11th. The weather man thought it was strange there was lightning in the middle of November in Minnesota. This Pow Wow was on sacred land in Cottage Grove MN. We have to unite our nation with beliefs of the Native Americans.

Next year please honor Native Americans on these days:

Native Americans’ Day 2017
Friday, September 22, 2017 (local in California)
Monday, October 9, 2017 (local in South Dakota)
Monday, October 9, 2017 (local in Alaska)
Monday, October 9, 2017 (local in California, Minnesota, Washington)

HONOR THE NATIVE AMERICANS

We have to make a stand on November 10th
for the Native Americans.
They have sacred land
which is to honored
as the cemeteries of the White Man.
On November 10th last year,
I did a Pow Wow honoring the ancestors;
these Pioneers.
Yes, they were the Pioneers of North America
We can not forget
there homes where taken
with no regret-
By the side that
had all their pride.
They ravaged their lives
it’s time now to turn the tide.
Now we must pay homage
and honor them this day-
with a ceremony which you
offer a gift and send a pray their way.
The reservations are now filled with drugs
We need to see how this affects all of us.
WE need to Respect their Land
Their People
are honored in September 22, October 9,
and all of the days in November
these are the days and month
to Remember.

Colin Kaepernick may have started the kneeling in protest of America ‘s national

anthem, but Stephen Martin, owner of Prime Time Sports in Colorado Springs

Colorado, has started a patriotic rising unlike anything that’s ever been done before

Martin first took a stand when NFL player Brandon Marshall refused to stand

for the anthem.   Immediately, Martin canceled Marshall ‘s scheduled autograph

signing event in his store.  But he wasn’t done.   He replaced the star’s event

with something entirely different in his store, and in one week, it has grown to

epic proportions that he can hardly even keep up with now.

He put out a post on Facebook, respectfully disagreeing with the disrespect of the

nation’s flag and anthem, then proceeded to explain just what the flag means to him,

and the sacrifice of all the men and women who have fought for it.     Martin invited

people to send photos of their loved ones who are veterans, in active service, or who

have been injured or given their lives in the line of duty.

The photos started pouring in from all across the country, and as fast as they were

emailed, Martin printed them off and taped them to his store front window.  Americans

are sharing their photos and stories on his Facebook page, as well as sending to him

through email, and each day he has posted photos of the progress.

“I shiver and I feel scared inside

When our family has to hide.

Hide inside the house all day

Because there might be a scary

raid.

I know they will take my

Close relative away.

These big men wearing green

I hear they have guns and are mean.

I fear I will get shot-

Or mommy too”.

Mommy says, “Hide

Under that bed-

Cover your head!

Don’t talk or move-

till I tell you what to do!”

“I can’t go to church today

That is where my family and me pray.

I pray now for my family and me-

I hope tomorrow is better than today

For now I’m scared and I afraid.”

A hug is more powerful than a gun
It makes receiver HAPPIER
No harm done.
We need to focus with deliberate
Intent-
What we want our nation to look like
How our money is spent.
Is it spent on guns or is it spent
On fun?
People see no gun crime
They all use their inner divine.
No honking at cars
going by-
No shootings and
or road rage-
Instead Everyone waves.

For WE have found a better way
By imagining a brighter image
Of the people of the US of A.
WE don’t need to build a wall
For in the end
It will FALL.
We need to build Bridges
And help UNITE
All the Races with a smile not a fight.

Dear Honorable Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,

I sent this email below to President Obama, The First Lady, all of the Senators, and Governors. I emailed you this email below on October 13th. These suggestions below can affect the American people. These concepts can change the course of how our Great Country, the United States of America will run to protect its American citizens.

I am writing you this email to suggest four new laws that protect the identities of American citizens from mug shots being used on the internet/social media and to have these laws be placed into action by lawmakers.

First Law: I believe for the American Citizen mug shots are a human rights violation. First and foremost, no mug shot should be taken of an innocent American citizen before trial. Fingerprints should be the means for identifying the citizen at time of arrest. There should be a law against mug shots being taken of American citizens until proven guilty, unless acts of violence that cause detrimental consequences to the person(s) they harm.

Second Law: Websites on the internet should not demand that American citizens pay exuberant amounts to take mug shots off their websites. There should be a law that no website should display mug shots to the American people/worldwide and also extort money out of innocent American citizens to have mug shots removed from their websites.

Third Law: American citizens can only be placed in correctional facilities on the basis of “Actual Evidence” not “Probable Cause”. I would like to suggest the law should be rectified to say “Actual Evidence”. As an American citizen the statement of “Innocent to Proven Guilty” should be changed to “Innocent to Proven Accountable”. Guilt is an emotion, not an action.

Fourth Law: I would also like to suggest that the media should not place American citizens on their news/websites or in their newspapers until American citizen has been proven guilty in court. When media run articles or do a televised report on television they are actually committing perjury and slandering the American citizen’s name. This has harmed many small business people and individuals from generating money for their families and themselves. Exceptions to this would when be the media televising unless acts of violence by individuals that cause detrimental consequences to the person(s) they harm.

I look forward to great reform being made in the Criminal Justice System. Thank you Hillary Clinton for taking the time to read this email.

Sincerely,
Suzae Chevalier

ACCOUNTABLE VERSES GUILTY

We live in a society where guilty is of the norm
this is bad for the soul for we do more harm.
Teaching kids to be accountable is easier to understand
they know what their actions did first hand.
We can be feel guilty without committing the crime
we can even go to jail innocent which is why-
We need to rewrite the belief system
for things have gotten out of hand
Average Americans don’t know that are losing
Rights in their mother land.
Yes, its’s you against the State
which is bigger than you and me-
We have to start being accountable
for that is how the Law will be written
both in emotionally, mental and in the physicality.

Scientists give you the straight line

they experiment and then hypothesis.

Their experiments are not based on lies.

They are not funded by lobbyists

that have agendas and lists.

Scientists are not trying to impress.

they don’t keep things close to the vest.

Scientists are here to help the environment.

They don’t need scandals and to repent.

They will listen to everyone’s side,

they formulate and do not criticize.

Once they know “what’s working” they

“share” the surprise.

Now American’s let US take a different view,

of how the government should be run not just for a few,

but for the People, Animals, Wild Life, and Plant Life,

on Which It Stands,

let US Bring Back Integrity To This Land.

AlaskWildlife

We can’t let Alaska get away with its brutal and reckless scheme of targeting wolves with pups and bears with cubs on our national wildlife refuges – all to artificially inflate game numbers to benefit hunters.

It’s wrong. And it must be stopped.

Please, won’t you donate today to help us fight for the wildlife and wild lands we all love?

 

I bet you’re going to be as angry as I am when you hear this news.

The state of Alaska wants to kill wolves, bears and other wildlife by baiting, snaring and shooting mother bears with cubs and wolves with pups. And they want to do it on national wildlife refuges!

It must be stopped.

Your compassionate donation will help save wolves and other wildlife you love.

As if it couldn’t get more despicable – Alaska officials want to undertake these lethal “predator control” measures in order to artificially inflate moose and other game animal numbers to benefit hunters!

Alaska’s cruel scheme would permit:

  • Killing wolves and pups during the spring and summer “denning” season;
  • Gunning down mother bears and their cubs;
  • Baiting and snaring any black or brown bear or cub; and
  • Aerial shooting of bears and wolves by state agency personnel.

How could the state even contemplate activities like these on America’s refuges?

Suzae, thanks to you and other stalwart wildlife lovers, Defenders has been at the forefront of efforts to protect wolves and other wildlife from irresponsible hunting, development and other threats.

Your urgent donation today will make a difference.

Thanks for all your help.

Sincerely,

Jamie Rappaport Clark
President, Defenders of Wildlife

Thanks so much for all you do.
