The 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, A Too-Sexy Wedding Dress and other religious and or interesting news…

Hello World,

This dress is similar to the one the would-be bride wanted to wear on Aug. 10…

My new hubby and I are still adjusting to married life and moving in together so keep us in your thoughts and prayers…

So on to today’s blog posts, there are many stories that have caught my attention, and I thought I would list them so that you can be informed and entertained as well if you haven’t heard of them already…

Of course, people traveled from all around to our nation’s capital to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his impassioned and ultimately prophetic “I Have A Dream” speech. On Wednesday, Aug. 28, the actual anniversary of the march, President Obama will speak at 3 p.m., the actual hour that King delivered his speech, from the Lincoln Memorial.  Also, Bounce TV will be airing the television premiere of “King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis” on Wednesday at 7 p.m. EST and 6 p.m. CST. “This rarely-seen 1970 film features historical footage of the event and includes appearances by Sidney Poitier, Diahann Carroll, Bill Cosby, James Earl Jones, Ruby Dee, Harry Belafonte, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Charlton Heston and other ardent supporters and friends of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. many of whom marched alongside him,” according to a press release. For more information about march commemoration activities, please go to 50thanniversarymarchonwashington.com. Also, go to MSNBC.com for photographs of this weekend’s events.

And some other stories caught my attention as well…

Antoinette Tuff and would-be school shooter…

2. If you live in Atlanta, you have heard of the heroism of Antoinette Tuff, a bookkeeper at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in DeKalb County, whom God used to talk a would-be school shooter out of using his AK-47 to kill and or harm her and the children…She credits her faith in God for enabling her to soothe this troubled young man and help him to turn himself in…To see an interview with Tuff, please go to wsbtv.com…this is evidence that prayer needs to return to school…

3. This story really caught my attention since it is about a wedding that was supposed to happen on Aug. 10, the date that I got married, but didn’t…After seeing the would-be bride’s scanty wedding dress, the pastor refused to marry her…When I saw a version of the dress, I agree with his actions…why marry in a house of God, when you look like a woman of ill repute?
