RIP Lee Rigby

Timeline
No soldier deserves such a death in his homeland. The men responsible should be bought to justice and be executed. They deserve nothing less. Any religion that advocates violence should not be a religion.

What has this man done in his life to die in such a horrible manner? Such a senseless act.

Such a tragedy!! I pray that God will comfort his family and they will eventually find peace.

President Obama To Be Sworn In Using Martin Luther King Jr. Bible


President Obama’s Inauguration ceremony on January 21 will be historic for many reasons. As tradition would have it, he will use the Lincoln Bible but will also use a Bible once owned by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.“We know our father would be deeply moved to see President Obama take the Oath of Office using his bible,” Dr. King’s children said in a statement.

Connecticut Shooting: Obama’s Emotional Pledge

Connecticut
US President Barack Obama speaking at a vigil for the 27 victims of the shootings at a Connecticut elementary school, says the US must do more to protect children. Mr Obama used a speech in Connecticut to urge the US to make the killing of 27 people in Newtown on Friday the last in a string of mass shootings during his presidency.

“These tragedies must end,” he told an interfaith vigil. “And to end them we must change.” As the president delivered his remarks to a secondary school hall filled with relatives and friends of the 20 young children and seven women who died, sobbing could be heard from the audience. Conceding that “no single law – no set of laws – can eliminate evil from the world”, Mr Obama insisted that this nonetheless must “not be an excuse for inaction”, asking: “Surely we can do better than this?”

Emboldened by his re-election last month, he pledged to use “whatever power this office holds” to prevent further slaughter, hinting that he would weigh into a policy debate frozen over the past decade by reluctance in Washington to alienate the pro-gun lobby. Yet the president’s remarks seemed likely to disappoint those from his Democratic party urging swift and decisive action on new gun control measures, promising only to “engage” with voters and communities “in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this”.

T.I. Teams Up With Pink For “Guns And Roses”

T.I.
When I first heard this collaboration I was full of questions and had very few answers.

¤ What would they sound like together?

¤ Would Pink rap?

¤ Does Pink even like rap?

¤ Has T.I. ever heard a Pink song?

…so many questions!

Well, folks, now I have some answers in the form of the song itself, “Guns And Roses.” The song appears on T.I.’s latest album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head and it’s a super-poppy track that perfectly blends the rapper and pop-singer’s styles together into a song that is sure to be a hit.

What do you think of this collaboration?

Israeli Soldiers Search For A Rocket After It Was Fired From Gaza And Landed In The West Bank

Gaza
Home-made “M75” missile landed in open ground in the West Bank, a short distance to the south-east of the Israeli capital. It triggered air raid sirens and panic in the city for the first time since the Gulf War in 1991, but caused no casualties. An earlier missile likewise failed to hit Tel Aviv, Israel’s commerical capital, landing harmlessly in the sea.
