    Many prayers will follow these courageous students to D.C. It has been too long that this DICTATORSHIP of Mich. has continued to go on. Several of us in Benton Harbor have been contacting D.C. and even the U.N. (to no avail, but we aren’t giving up!!) It is people like Helen Moore who keep us motivated to keep fighting, and I am SO glad the youth of Detroit has been involved!! Many thanks to them and ALL who continue the fight for our FREEDOM. I only wish the people of Benton Harbor could unite the way the people of Detroit have. Much LOVE and MANY BLESSINGS to ALL!
