In his remarks on WTOP on August 11, 2013, Mayor Gray reminisced about when he was a college student at George Washington University, and how he participated in Dr. King’s March on Washington for civil rights. He said:
I consider it to be the greatest speech ever because Dr. King successfully appealed to Americans of all backgrounds to live up to the promises on which our country was founded – that all human beings are created equal, and that we deserve equal rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Ariana-Leilani is a 10 year old German African American living in Ward 3, just blocks from Mayor Gray’s office on Pennsylvania Avenue. We wish he would act on his stated beliefs and make a reality “equal rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” for Ariana-Leilani. Assuring her rights is within his power; Mayor Gray needs to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s March on Washington, please sign Ariana-Leilani’s Petition:
Police chiefs, prosecutors, pastors and local Boy Scout leaders among them – quietly shielded Boy Scout scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children, a newly opened trove of confidential papers shows.
For example, a 27-year-old assistant Scoutmaster confessed and resigned his position, but a local prosecutor and the police department made sure the Scouting name was never publicly associated with the crime, despite the fact that the abuse was conducted by a Scoutmaster on Scouts at a Scout camp.
“The States Attorney with whom I talked late last night and the local police assure me they will do everything in their power to keep Scouting’s name and Camp Sunrise out of this,” a local Scouts executive wrote in a letter to the national council headquarters.
The same coverup unfortunately happens when the abuse involves religious groups, such as the churches of the Catholic, Mormon/LDS and Sovereign Grace Ministries..
Charges were laid out in a class action lawsuit that the churches within Sovereign Grace Ministries turned a deaf ear to child sex abuse committed by church members. Three female plaintiffs detail repeated abuse in the 1980’s and 90’s ,but say the church covered up child molestation, worked with sexual predators to mislead enforcement and even blamed the victims.
The neglect and abuse of Ariana-Leilani’s Severe Chronic Neutropenia is also being shielded by corrupt local DC officials. We need to urge President Obama and Chancellor Merkel to save Ariana-Leilani.
Dont’ let these corrupt DC officials deny Ariana-Leilani the medicine she needs for her severe chronic neutropenia, please sign her petition:
