Black America Web

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — An official says four students were believed to be seriously injured at a high school near Pittsburgh, where a student with a knife stabbed or slashed others, injuring as many as 20.

Westmoreland County emergency management spokesman Dan Stevens says not all of the 20 injured were cut by the knife, though most were. Some suffered scrapes and cuts in the mayhem that ensued at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville on Wednesday morning.

Stevens says it doesn’t appear any students suffered life-threatening injuries. He says all the injured are between 14 and 17 years old.

The suspect, a male student, was taken into custody and being questioned.

Stevens says the suspect used a knife, though he didn’t say what kind or why he attacked the others.

So Many Things I Want to Say, But Can’t. Thankfully…

The Disney Diva

Thankfully I have Disney movies to watch that deliver the “Oh, snap!” rhetoric I only dream of using when performing my customer service duties. Some people can be so rude, so mean! Thanks to Francis from Oliver and Company for eloquently stating a point I wish I could have used earlier this morning!


And it was a very colorful vocabulary at that… 😥

Dear Tom,

I am sending you this letter in hopes that you will pick my sister Benita Green for a Christmas wish.   Our mother had 10 children with Benita being the oldest.   Twenty-five years ago, Benita made a commitment to our mother to help her care for our little sister, Shayla who is disabled with cerebral palsy, so she would not have to be in a nursing facility.

In 2007, our mother died suddenly leaving Benita to become a 24- hour mother and provide a home for Shayla.    She took over mother’s house payments, bought a handicapped van to transport her around and put her own career on the backburner.    In August of 2013, Benita became ill with heart issues and we all took to praying because she has been our rock that holds us together.

Tom, on April 29th, she will turn 50…

A little April update…

Anyways, those are pretty much my nights now. Lot of nightmares and flashbacks, but at least I sleep! (sort of lol)

If you are not familiar with PTSD, I suggest you take a look at my post about it right HERE, since I noticed that a lot of people I met through WordPress are battling this.

So, that’s for the crazy and sad part, on to the greatness of April! 🙂

Like you may have noticed, I got my…
