JUSTICE FOR AYOTZINAPA

GRAND INJUSTICE ONGOING IN MEXICO with 43 STUDENTS MISSING/ PRESUMED MURDERED
{my subtitle}

350px


As a teacher myself, I'd love to give my opinions and my heartache over this horrendous tragedy but it's much better for you, if you get the facts and hear what is being written and shared. Hopefully, you will leave better informed and appalled by what is happening, perhaps motivated to ACT. The details are overwhelming and justice must come for these 43 college students and their families crying out for them. These students have names, families and human rights.
"The murder of six people, including three students, and the disappearance of 43 other students from the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training School in the state of Guerrero exposes how Mexico can not shake its history of state violence and impunity."... "The 43 missing students are part of the 240 people who have gone missing in just in the state of Guerrero this year, while there have been over 9,000 people who have disappeared since President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in 2012." ... TeleSur TV{excellent, informative article on the multiple disappearances in Mexico overall}
I could not agree more with this statement made at the end of the above article 
"...Until these issues are addressed, and justice and accountability become the norm and not the exception,  groups such as students, women, human rights defenders, migrants, and journalists will remain vulnerable."



AYOTZINAPA 
Disappearance of 43 Students
so

"Mexico has a very deep wound right now after the disappearance of the 43 students in Ayotzinapa. 

On September 26, dozens of students took several buses to Iguala, and after a violent encounter with the police, 43 of them were allegedly taken to the police headquarters and never heard from them again. The government claimed the students where there to boycott a political event, but the students claim they were there to raise funds for their school. Mexican authorities eventually declared the students dead after weeks of investigation, but the people of Mexico are not letting this one go so easily.



They’ve had enough with the government, and this atrocious act was the last straw, which detonated a series of protests around the whole country. 

On November 20, 2014, multiple manifestations  both in Mexico and of Mexicans living in other countries took place to show their support to the Ayotzinapa students and to tell the government that they’re tired of the corruption. The protest in Mexico City specifically took place at El Zócalo,  ..."

CNN reported this here like this
"remains could be 43 missing Mexican *students"
on November 11th, 2014

*These "students" are/were studying to become teachers in the rural areas of Mexico.

"STORY HIGHLIGHTS from the above CNN Report
  • Mexico's attorney general provides new details on the missing students
  • He says police kidnapped them at the mayor's orders
  • They were handed over to a gang, the attorney general says"

Video censorado {probable por la informacion que tiene} Otro video de "Julio Cesar Mondragon" de Personajes Mexico {this is one of the most horrible crimes committed against this individual and his family: unspeakable violent death} No one deserves to be left dead like this nor families waiting to hear news about their loved ones missing...

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!

NO LONGER A MEME!

Blessings to ALL Readers & Participants!

It is with a heavy heart that I will no longer be hosting "memes"!

So Mission 4 Monday will still exist as my blog ONLY and I will NO longer be doing this as a "meme" for others to JOIN me and share!

I truly believe that each one that has participated shared GREAT MISSIONS!


MORE BELOW in my post "NO LONGER A MEME"

Thank you ALL for participating when you were able & sharing your mission & heart with us!

I still believe that each one of us "were made for a mission" and an opportunity crosses our path each week to serve others as a MISSION. Open your eyes & see the needs around us!

I still believe in the great value & worth of sharing MISSIONS!

I still believe that you do not have to be a missionary "sent out in the world" to be a missionary. Your home, your neighborhood, your community is filled with needs to be met with the passion & compassion of Jesus Christ. One day a week or month, take the time. It may be the first "short term" mission that God moves in you & touches others with His love.

I still believe "all" that Rick Warren shared in "The Purpose Driven Life" especially Purpose #5!
WE WERE MADE FOR A MISSION!

I still believe that I will continue to share MISSIONS put on my heart right here.

"God has given you a Life Message to share..."

and I know that HE gave me a LIFE MESSAGE and
I hope to share that through what I post here. I will continue to update on ministries as I have and those in my sidebar.

THANKS MISSION4MONDAY PARTICIPANTS & READERS! Click here to see who participated in MISSION 4 MONDAY!



PRAISE the LORD for REPENTANCE in HAITI! Keep praying; get ready to repent in USA & WORLDWIDE

Tears of the Saints


I had "Tears of the Saints" from Acts1v8 on Vimeo.


You are the light of the world' –– Jesus talking to His disciples.

Are we being the 'salt and light' that we are called to be?

I needed to remove the Vimeo because it says for PRIVATE USE! It's still worth seeing and all of the others available through Mission Mobilizer. It looks like "Tears of the Saints" is no longer available.


So I have replaced it with this song by Leeland & YouTube by lkittycat






IN THE PAST HOUR:


1625 children were forced to live on the streets

1667 children died from malnutrition or disease

115 children became prostitutes

257 children were orphaned because of HIV/Aids.

It gets worse...

2 billion people in the world today have never ever heard of Jesus. 1% of missions financial support, goes to reaching those unreached people. 30,000 people starve to death every day.
