“To My Beloved Lord”
Psalms of Conviction, Love and Thanks
“The true man knows his place amongst God‘s nature, he is pleased with the works of his Lord, everyday he gives thanks for the wonders he sees….make me a holy instrument for your will, show me the way and I will follow you till the ends of the Earth, I will rejoice in the pleasures of your grace and give thanks….embrace me with your Cloak of Armor, indwell me with your Holy Spirit, shower me day and night with the Precious Blood of your Most Blessed Son Jesus Christ, who was and is and ever will…let my every breath, my every thought, my every heartbeat, be for you my Lord and Savior…that I may never cease from loving you, from thinking of you, from living for you…..even though I may be discouraged let your joy sing in me , breath in me your precious words of love, walk with me where no one will, sit with me when no one will, hold me in your arms and lift me up when all have abandoned me let me hear your footsteps beside me, let me stand beneath your most holy shadow, be that door that opens for me, when the night draws near and the curtains fall, when the rivers run where I cannot for faint keep up, when the wind and the rain rise up before me let the light of your love show me the way, the wings of your Holy Angels guide me through the storm, consuming me with your love and joy as I put today’s pain away forever till the dawn of a new day awakens me in your precious, blessed holy arms once again….” ©JRH 2011
“Who can know the wisdom of your words, your thoughts, and your will? Who is as powerful as my Lord and Savior, as cunning and wise, who can create all of your tomorrows and still the stars up in the sky, and the thoughts of your mind, and count every beat and every breath you take; but he, who is and was and ever will Jehovah Adonai, can any man hear him breath, yet he can hear a million and more , can any man stand beside his awe and not shutter as he wonders before him, in all creation and all there is and ever was he is creator of it all and yet you wonder, you pause and think and scheme, you tremble beneath his lightning and storms and hide when the whirlwind draws near, when the night envelopes you, when sleep overtakes you; you reach to him, to touch him -to wonder- if he is????” © JRH 2011
A Greedy Self Serving Mankind; Worshipping Amongst the Synagogues of Satan
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 7/11
You ever ask yourself why do the greedy and naive scum of the earth always seem to rise to the top, while the pure and most blessed of souls have to grumble down in the muck and mire to make a living down here on God’s green earth? You ever wonder why humanity allows millions of unborn babies to be dumped down the toilet every year; unwanted, unloved, despised for what little life they represent to the ungodly and despicable amongst us? You ever wonder why hatred and envy is so prevalent today; why video games and pornography is so popular; why drugs and alcohol are the choicest ways of facing reality; why children are abandoned as are the elderly; why the greedy seem to just get greedier. Everyday we pass someone on the streets and we may smile or look the other way or stare uneasily; we go home we turn on the boob tube and watch someone’s life rolled out before us and then we watch as the experts dissect the true meaning of their malaise and then lay it all out before us. We peer into the smallest minutest particles of DNA to get to the bottom of whom or why this person did what he/she did to that other person. We preoccupy our minds, we push it all out and fill it back again with everything we think we like and everything we believe fits neatly into the world we have created for ourselves. But have we ever really asked the question; is this the world we want to live in? Is this the world we truly have created or is it a world that has been diabolically crafted just for our consumption, for our taste buds, to direct and control the pains and yearnings of our compulsive behaviors?
You know what people want most of all? Someone they can depend on and who will not betray them; someone who won’t smile in front of their face while behind those eyes detest the ground they stand on. This is what people want. They want to build networks of friends all around the globe, if possible. Friends who will be there for them in times of need with prayer, love and material help. Instead they rely on the big corporations to do it all for them and they believe their lies all the while the top most wealthy get wealthier and arrogantly thumb their noses at them. Telling them they deserve their riches; all those cars, boats, homes, money in the bank, properties, businesses, jewelry, clothes –because- they feel they worked hard for what they got. We live in a greedy self serving world where pain and suffering is a way of life for so many out there. There are so few in high places that truly care for those at or near the bottom and what little we or they have down here they want to hold unto. To keep the rest of us away from their grain of wealth, from their private little miserable world, alienating the rest of us around them never realizing that what little they may have and what little we may have is slowly corroding. Slowly fading away, slowly drifting from ours and their hands –because- through that dust storm of hatred and despair -there are many up on top- who would like to see that little bit of charity or love or help taken away.

ON THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL ISSUE
To those who support the Palestinian cause I say this; after your done killing every Jew and pushing them into the Sea and raping their children and torturing their ederly and burning down their lands. What are you gonna do when -Jesus the Jew- stands before all of you with all the Hosts of Heaven upon the Mount of Olives? Where are you gonna hide? Where are you gonna run to? Are you gonna run to facebook and spit one last time in the face of another Jew? You can’t erase the face of Jesus from Jerusalem!!! But, since he died for the sins of the world it isn’t -too late yet- to repent and be free of all your hatred! Don’t wait till it’s too late; I hear their is no end to the torment of HELL!!
“You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Mathew-

“The record of the Vatican in relationship to the Holocaust is one of the great moral failures in history—one from which the Catholic Church itself has yet to recover,” writes columnist James Carroll in The Boston Globe. To back up his point, he lists the following historical data: “1929—The Lateran Pacts between Mussolini and Pius XI give the Vatican freedom and money, and they give needed prestige to Mussolini. —The Vatican signs a Concordat with Hitler, his first international success. . . . 1935—Mussolini invades Abyssinia. Catholic bishops bless Italian troops . . . 1939—Mussolini decrees an end to the rights of Jews in Italy. The pope says nothing. . . . 1942—The pope receives reports from Italian army chaplains about the extermination of the Jews. In his Christmas message, he bemoans the fate of ‘unfortunate people’ killed because of their race, but he does not mention Hitler, Germany or the death camps. Once again, the word ‘Jew’ is not used. . . . 1943—Germans begin to round up Jews in Italy, even in Rome near the Vatican. The pope is still silent.”
Why the Churches Kept Silent
ON DECEMBER 8, 1993, Dr. Franklin Littell of Baylor University spoke at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum about a troublesome “concrete truth.” What was that?
The truth, Littell said, was that “six million Jews were targeted and systematically murdered in the heart of Christendom, by baptized Roman Catholics, Protestants, and Eastern Orthodox who were never rebuked, let alone excommunicated.” One voice, however, did consistently speak out about clergy involvement with Hitler’s regime. And the voice, as we have seen, was that of Jehovah’s Witnesses.Holocaust was the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945.” Jews were the primary victims, but the State policy also sought to eliminate Roma and Sinti (two gypsy tribes), the disabled, Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and political dissidents. “

“In 1947, the British government announced it would withdraw from the Mandate of Palestine, stating it was unable to arrive at a solution acceptable to both Arabs and Jews. The newly created United Nations approved the Partition Plan for Palestine (United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181) on November 29, 1947, which sought to divide the country into two states—one Arab and one Jewish. Jerusalem was designated to be an international city—a corpus separatum—administered by the UN. The Jewish community accepted the plan, but the Arab League and Arab Higher Committee of Palestine rejected it. On December 1, 1947, the Arab Higher Committee proclaimed a three-day strike, and Arab bands began attacking Jewish targets. The Jews were initially on the defensive as civil war broke out, but they gradually moved onto the offensive. The Palestinian Arab economy collapsed and 250,000 Palestinian-Arabs fled or were expelled. David Ben-Gurion proclaiming Israeli independence on May 14, 1948, below a portrait of Theodor Herzl
On May 14, 1948, the day before the expiration of the British Mandate, the Jewish Agency proclaimed independence, naming the country Israel. The following day, the armies of four Arab countries —Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq — attacked Israel, launching the 1948 Arab–Israeli War; Saudi Arabia sent a military contingent to operate under Egyptian command; Yemen declared war but did not take military action. After a year of fighting, a ceasefire was declared and temporary borders, known as the Green Line, were established. Jordan annexed what became known as the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and Egypt took control of the Gaza Strip. Over 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled from Israel during the conflict. Israel was accepted as a member of the United Nations by majority vote on May 11, 1949. In the early years of the state, the Labor Zionist movement led by Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion dominated Israeli politics. These years were marked by an influx of Holocaust survivors and Jews from Arab lands, many of whom faced persecution in and expulsion from their original countries. Consequently, the population of Israel rose from 800,000 to two million between 1948 and 1958. Some arrived as refugees with no possessions and were housed in temporary camps known as ma’abarot; by 1952, over 200,000 immigrants were living in these tent cities. The need to solve the crisis led Ben-Gurion to sign a reparations agreement with West Germany that triggered mass protests by Jews angered at the idea that Israel could accept monetary compensation for the Holocaust. In the 1950s, Israel was frequently attacked by Palestinian fedayeen, mainly from the Egyptian-occupied Gaza Strip. In 1950 Egypt closed the Suez Canal to Israel. There was mounting tension and a number of armed clashes took place along all of Israel’s borders. In 1956, Israel joined a secret alliance with Great Britain and France aimed at regaining control of the Suez Canal, which the Egyptians had nationalized (see the Suez Crisis). Israel overran the Sinai Peninsula but was soon pressured to withdraw by the United Nations in return for guarantees of Israeli shipping rights in the Red Sea and the Canal.In the early 1960s, Israel captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Argentina and brought him to back to Israel for trial. The trial had a major impact on public awareness of the Holocaust, but Eichmann remains the only person ever to be executed by order of an Israeli court.”

Worshipping at the Altar of Selfishness and Hatred
by John R Hernandez on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at 9:52pm
But the GREATEST of these is Love; embedded attributes of human emotions gone awry
Written and Edited By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 7/11
Hate forces us to discard the unwanted; too lazy walk down to the Goodwill or Salvation Army Box, to offer it to our neighbors or the strangers down the road, no, it’s much easier to just throw it all away; so noone can get to it. This is how we treat our relationships; we use them and we squeeze them, till they can’t take it nomore or untill we’re sick and tired; and then we dump them out into the streets for someone else to pick them up and do worst things to them. Repeating the cirlcle of hate over and over again. We love our children or so we pretend, untill noone is around and then we light the cigarette, we pop the beer bottle open and kick back on the couch to watch the latest sports channel or soap opera ignoring, their solitude and pain. We plan and scheme our way out of everything; too sick to make it to church for the sixth time in a row, to tired to look in on the elderly neighbor, to arrogant to pitch in and help with the dishes; or show someone the affection they so desperately need and deserve. Blindly following the norms dictated to us by a pretentious and shallow consumer society; our nails must be done excatly like they do it in that fashion mag, our suits must be tailored to the right fit we see in the fashion shows, how we talk and how we walk, who we choose as friends and who we choose to ignore; what school we attend, the latest tatoo, the latest fad. After all it tells them who we are on the outside. But, is that really who we are on the inside? Behind it all; lay the simmering embers of a burning anger, an incomplete desire to want to let go; a compulsion to attain, to get more, to be the best, to stand above the crowd, to give ground to noone; to nurture and feed the hate!

In Support of Non-Custodial Fathers!!! God Bless All of You and Happy Fourth of July 2011!!!
by John R Hernandez on Monday, July 4, 2011 at 6:39pm
To All CRFN Members,
In reply to the rethoric that went for supporting the rights of fathers.
It would of been a better message if it would have included the gurantee that one day Non-Custodial Fathers will get all the rights they deserve -which- for far too long have been denied to them by the oppressive practice of Parental Alienation; both from custodial parents -as well as- under the Corrupt American Family Court System! But, that’s right-yeh- Non-Custodial Fathers don’t have big pockets; since the majority of them are paying through the ying-yang -to warrant- any support from today’s so-called crusaders for family…!

Remember Your First Love; Whose God is he?
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 6/11 ©
As I look around this world I see so much hatred, scoffing, and apathy. People living one way on church day and another the rest of the week. I see parents spending little time with their children when they should be there to help them with their homework; making sure it gets done right the first time. Helping them to become productive citizens. Helping them to learn to play and instrument or become better linguists. I see children ignoring the needs of their parents now that they are grown and on their own. Because, the parents that helped to raise them are way too easily abandoned and caged in private care facilities; forgotten to their eyes. I hear the cries of those who live in homeless shelters with no hope; but, to just get through another night in what seems more like a living hell to them. I see warriors come back home broken and crippled, living desperate lives, shunned from the public eye and left to wallow in the muck and mire of confusion and pain. I see the eyes of mothers abandoned, forced to seek out an existence; when we should be there. We turn our faces and walk away. How much pain and terror must we face before our hearts break from the suffering and torment of this human family? We are called to recognize and comfort the afflicted, the aggrieved, those who suffer persecution and those who as a result natural phenomenon or as a result of human interaction; human failure, or mechanical error are heart broken. Inadvertent, accidents happen all the time. But, when we as a church; as those called out by Almighty God to come together and pray for those in the congregation, to admonish (to rebuke, to educate the flock in God’s way’s, to instruct, to edify, to lift up, to feed the hungry, to open the eyes of those blindly living their lives..). It is because of these, that his great love is poured out unto us as a congregation and those we send out. That is our great commission, our first love, as brothers and sisters in faith. But, when we begin to go out on our own and put God sort of in a box and sit ourselves up high and pretend we are in control. This is a great mistake! That many churches make. When Christ speaks to the church at Ephesus he castigates it for its failure to recognize who is in control and the reason why they took the oath of Faith. And the admonition goes to all congregants; because it may sound strange to you but all of us in the body are stewards of that body and partakers of the responsibility to edify and to rebuke as necessary each and every member –regardless- of position or tile. Whenever we ignore the needs of those less fortunate we ignore the love of God. Whenever, we pretend the poor around us don’t exist, we deny the love of God exists. Whenever we fail to offer a helping hand to someone we otherwise would rather not bother with, we act as if the love of God didn’t exist in us. This is what Christ is saying to Ephesus, you have lost your first love. Often times we replace that Love we the love for fornication, for alcohol, for gambling, for money, for everything that our weak and helpless flesh wrongfully allows. “Don’t forget” Jesus says to us! And remember that if Jesus be with us who can be against us! For we are more than conquerors in Christ who strengthens us. There are some that are called to comfort and instruct, others to edify and build, some to be disciples, others deacons, some to the mission fields of life; But all of us are called equally for one purpose as was Ephesus. To bring the love and joy of our faith and our way of life to those whose lives have been shattered; to help free the captives (addicted), bring site to the blind (in faith) and to proclaim the coming day of our Lord and Savior (His return to Rule and to Judge). Some people treat God as if he was one of their buddies. Like the friend at work, or the one they hunt with or just anybody. Some people fail to recognize who they are addressing. Who they are talking to and before whose presence they stand. The biggest mistake the church at Ephesus made and the main reason Christ himself had to have a face to face with them was and is because they began to take God for granted! Of course we all have read the Bible; we all know by the countless examples of fire and brimstone God raising his hand and slaughtering Israel’s enemies by the millions. And we also have first and second hand accounts of the times Almighty God had to step in and rebuke sinners. He even tearfully at times after long lamentations and great callings; had to punish and even exterminate many Jews. Convicting them of worshipping idols; of not following his rules of engagement, of becoming haughty and arrogant and -oh yes- for that seemingly innocent offense of taking him for granted. We are not forced to be perfect but we are asked to cleanse our minds, wash our garments clean; in order that we may present ourselves a just and perfect sacrifice. Go out into the world and make disciples of men. Why? Because, we live in a lost and dying world. Behold I stand and knock, if anyone should listen and open unto me I will come in and sit with him and fellowship with him or her or them and teach them my ways. I am the way the truth and the life; no one come to the father but through me. He who believes in me I will give him to drink from the rivers of living water. For the day will come that you will not worship in flesh but in spirit and in truth; and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and take away all of their sorrows and be their God.
Have a Blessed Day!

In Support of Civil Rights for All Non-Custodial Fathers
Preamble to the US Constitution; We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Universal DECLARATION OF Human Rights “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
Today freedom of speech, or the freedom of expression, is recognized in international and regional human rights law. The right is enshrined in Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, Article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights and Article 9 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights. Based on John Milton‘s arguments, freedom of speech is understood as a multi-faceted right that includes not only the right to express, or disseminate, information and ideas, but three further distinct aspects: • the right to seek information and ideas; • the right to receive information and ideas; • the right to impart information and ideas.

The Oppression of Parental Alienation and the Negatively Biased Anti-Fatherhood Family Court System are the Reasons Why Some Men Just Give Up!
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 7/11 (c)
“First they threw out prayer in schools along with the bible, then they threw out the pledge of alligeance, then they came for our unborn and threw them into waste recepticles like yesterday’s garbage, then they created a massive bureacratic family court system -which- singlehandedly gurantees to all states and to all women a nice fat check for every man they file a lawsuit of child support on; ultimately helping to place the final wedge between fathers and their children”
John R Hernandez, Jr.
Those who know of me, know how much I love my children and they sure dang know what hell I have been put through by the system and the two mothers of my children. We are all human beings and we all make mistakes. I’ve made mine, God knows I made two big mistakes with those two. But, I have never brought shame or hurt to any one of them or to their door. I have walked away, lived my life and left people alone to sort out their own misery and mistakes. I have paid dearly for only wanting one thing. To have what every decent sane man should dream of and want. God knows I try to be a good Christian as far as patience will allow. I did my best with my oldest child, though she grew up in a single family home; I spent most of my time there playing with her, taking her to the park, the zoo, the amusemnst parks, the sea shore; in effect I was there and I saw her grow up and shared greatly in her life. Her mother never pushed me away or alienated me from her. And she made every effort to come with her and visit and if I wasn’t there I knew there would be a note on my door letting me know she came by. I would have to say we had a good realtionship. Because, I allowed it to be for 15 years of Katie’s life. I was there! I contributed what I could. I paid my support and still spent out of the other pocket on my daughter and if the mother needed something I did my best to get it for her. Even though I knew deep inside I had been railroaded by the family court system. I tried to live a clean life and made sure to never let my daughter see me with another woman. So she would never have to hear the words “your dad is a woman chaser”. I wanted her to remember me in a good way as a good father, a good example in her life. Just as I remember days like this one. It was after working the all night shift I went over to her and her mom’s home. I’d fallen asleep on the couch for an hour or so it was about 8:am and I jumped up. Because, this was her first day of kindergarten and I knew I had to be there. Her mother and I walked her to the schoold bus stop. I helped her get on the bus, and just as she got to the top of the stairs on that bus she did a 160 degree circle and said to me, “Wrong bus!”. My heart fell somewhere between my stomach I know not where. It was all I could do to hold the lump in my throat and I said, “No baby this is the right bus, here let me introduce you to your new bus friend” and she said hello to the other girl sitting there by herself and sat next to her and they smiled at each other. I said, “bye-bye I’ll see you later baby”. The bus rolled on down the road as I held the tears as best I could. Her mom smiled and we walked away with another precious memory of our little girl’s first experience on her first day of Kindergarten. After that first day at school I would take her to school or her mom would. And we both would go visit and let her know we loved her and wanted to be near her; as she learned to get used to school life. I used to love to buy her things with what little I had. I remember she would love to model for me and I would encourage her. I got a picture of her modeling for me where she looked like both Little Bo Beep and Shirley Temple in it. I remember when I ordered the cardboard doll house for her. I thought to my self it wasn’t wood but she might like it just the same cause somewhere I saw a part of me in her. Well, the day came and I brought the package over to her and we both put it together. She was tickled pink! She loved her doll house even though it was cardboard. It still meant the world to her and she had many months and years of fun with it and all the toys. I and her mother and granmother got for her to go along with her special doll house. Another memory was that I used to love taking her to buy toys and things and take drives and one day while on a toy drive I stopped at Kaybee Toys at the Mall. Well, we walked around that store for what seemed like hours me pushing the cart around those eisles of toys and more toys. The cart was full and I stopped by the end of one eisle and had a word with her. It went like this, “Now hon you know we can’t afford all these things so why don’t we pick out a few things we like the most and let’s get out of here” And she said, “Okay daddy” and I followed her as she led me back all around and she would take things out of her cart and putting them back on the shelves. When we finaly got to the counter a young woman asked, “Will that be all?” And out of nowhere Katie pulled a sock full of change out of her little pocketbook and swung it on the counter and asked the cashier, “Will this be enough?” It was one of those many moments again when my heart fell back between my stomach somewhere as the lump in my throat grew heavy. One of these days I’ll try and post some of the pictures of Katie and I back When we Were Us.
An Informed Decision Based on the Facts and Not One Skewed by Bias Makes for a Better Argument: A Rebuttal to the President’s Father’s Day Message and My Suggestions
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 6/11 ©
Our US Constitution Guarantees us the Right to Speak Out Mr. President; you need to get the facts straight before you speak out on a subject you obviously know little about. I mean you know about raising your children and it’s obvious we both come from single parent homes. But I have look at my father and his gift of life to me as a sacred one. Yes, you know how to be -as you put it- a good father to your children. But, you have no idea why some men cannot be in their father’s lives. That is an issue that must be taken on a case- by- case- basis. Once all the facts are gathered then you can make informed statements-based- on the information before you –about- certain groups or members of certain groups -in this case- fathers. The generalized statement that fathers may be bad because they are absent from their children’s lives is a blank statement to deter attention from the real facts that need your further attention. Who is it that you don’t want to rock their boat? Sometimes in leadership one has to rock someone’s boat to get them to take a close look at their actions and practices and see if they need to be changed based on the facts presented. To insinuate that men that are absent from their children’s lives are “bad men” is an insult to people you have no facts about. If a man is not in his children’s lives it can only be for three reasons. He can’t be, he doesn’t want to be or he is being alienated from his children. But to make rash statements without first knowing the real facts of a situation is to put a further wedge between men -that you have no factual knowledge about- and a society who for far to long has been made to think that non-custodial fathers or absent fathers have dome something wrond. And then you ask men to step up and be good fathers as if a man that is not in his child’s life is a bad man -without knowing- the facts of the case. I don’t know of any man that in his heart does not love his child. But, to make rash statements without facts is to malign people you don’t know anything about. First, investigate the situation before you open you jump to conclusions or to offer solutions. First, get some information on -Parental Alienation- which some parents but, mostly non-custodial fathers -in particular- have had to be subjected to. Because, it’s one of the main reasons –many- fathers cannot be in their children’s lives. Parental alienation doesn’t just have to come from the mother, it can come from any authority figure in that child’s life-that is suppressing- a fathers ability to spend time with that child. Go to-angiemedia.com- and get the facts before you make a statement that will appear as a broad or general judgement on people you don’t know. Go to -parentalrights.org- and get the facts. Millions of men out there deal with issues concerning Visitation, Equal Parenting, Joint Custody and many others with the mothers of their children. Some men are subjected to situations when dealing with their ex’s that exhibit patterns of anti -social behavior and which have been clinicaly associated to symptons of Parental Alienation. Many men every day are trying to get the word out that this nation’s family court system needs to be reformed. It needs a broader look into it’s practices towards non-custodial fathers. Many men out there are suffering day by day the emotional stress of being alienated from their childen, they are helpless. Because, the the majority of the courts ignore their issues. Directly suppressing them from having the kind of relationship they need and want to have with their children. There are many valid organizations out there that are speaking out against -a disease- that is way too prevalent -today- within the realm of father’s and children’s relationships. Some of these organization are championing causes like family court reform and equal parenting. But I believe they need to go a step furether and fight for stricter accountability of funds men must pay to the custodial parent in order to get a better picture of where the money is going, and I believe also that a routine drug test(within reason of course) should be impletmemted to all if not most custodial parents -in most if not all- cases. Along with the creation of a syetm to help parenst deal with their visitation and custody matters without the need to deride or ridicule men in family courts! I believe in order to make imformed decisions that pretend to support the best interest of children one needs to get the facts before generalizing men’s characters! Offering a pass to a zoo or a ticket to an amusement parkfalls short of helping to deal with the major problems facing men and women today when it comes to their children. When for far too many the problem has been shown to be -alienation and the oppression- inflicted upon them by a rouge family court system. Men are not bad fathers because they are not spending time with their children; when there are cases out there totally the opposite of what you may have in mind. My concern for -the past 30 years- has been to find someone, who will listen, -someone- with an open intellect and not one whose priorities are skewed -clouded -by biased decisions others have or may have impressed upon that individual. I wanted to find someone that would make the right decisions on the issues both parents are facing without having to make them based on some of the facts or not all of the facts presented. And certainly I did not want to find someone whose ideals and values where colored by the ideals and values of those around him or her. Who, obviously are not acting in the best interest of resolving the issue before them based on the weight of the facts and preponderance of the evidence set presented. To make decisions that affect the lives of millions of children and their fathers –simply- because you want to appease those under you is the opposite of what I was looking for. I wanted someone who was willing to stand up above the crowd and rule justly and righteously and with reason.
I wanted someone that would stand -separate and apart- and make decisions based on the facts and not to just tow the line and follow the rest of the crowd he belongs to. A president or general or king must not let those around him sway his decisions. This is the way he will show to the people that he is a -just and fair leader- who is willing to act in the best interest of the people. And not the special interests of a particular court or organization or people whose facts are skewed and biased.
“The Demonization of Fatherhood and Alienation from Parenting; One Fathers Struggle to Change a Broken System”
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2008
I felt blessed to be able to be there in the early years of Katie’s life; when she first stepped unto her school bus; being able to visit her at kindergarten and see the look in her eyes as she proudly danced around I’ll never forget the joy of sharing her smile, so proud to have her daddy by her side. I remember working three jobs just trying to make ends meet as a visiting part time daddy. Thankful that her mom was not so vindictive after suing me for child support to not alienate me from her. It hurt that my name was not on her school papers or on her birth certificate. That I was just some non-custodial father struggling to turn his life around, shunned by those around me. It tortured me knowing we would never be a real family; you know that type where both parents live together happily ever after. I remember the church chorus singing a lovely hymn and suddenly she just started singing, “Old McDonald had a farm…” The days we would spend at the zoo, by the river, chasing the amusement parks, down the shore or just visiting with her. That first Christmas tree and how she got all wound up around the tree ornaments and that look on her face when I told her she couldn’t see her toys till Christmas day. I remember how she would model for me all the pretty dresses I would get for her; all the surprises she would have for me waiting whenever I would visit; how she would have her pet gerbil do tricks for me and the day at the toy store as I asked the cashier how much was the toys I was about to buy her and how Katie popped out a sock full of change and asked, “Is this enough?”
And that’s my Fathers DAY Message!!

Faith and Values; If You Believe, One Single Tear
The Miracle of Golgotha Hill; One Single Tear
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. 6/11 ©
It was difficult for a poor child to grow up in such conditions, blind in one eye, after being beaten by street peddlers; he’d walked with a limp since birth. The others shunned him, they laughed at him and made jokes; He often could be seen begging by the peddler’s stands. Unable to walk fast or far he drew his sustenance from what was thrown out at the end of the day. This day he’d hurried home to his mom who was a sickly older woman. Whose husband had died trying to keep the Roman vandals from destroying what was left of the altar of God during the fire at the Temple. That night he found his mother dead and being an only son he knew he was now truly alone in the world. He sat by her side, for hours, staring into her eyes; asking why? He’d heard of a man carpenter named Jesus who healed the sick and brought sight to the blind and raised the dead; he wondered if this Jesus could bring his mother back? Could he do what they all say? Would he heal me too? I am sick and alone now and so hungry and my father and mom are gone. And I’d brought her these things so she could eat and get strong. Why God Jehovah have you done this to me, he cried? Suddenly, the Roman soldiers horses could be heard rushing through the square above the hill called Golgotha, the crowds were restless, and screams and the sounds of whipping could be heard inside his little hut of straw, where the little beggar boy sat besides his mothers bed. He heard someone call out to him from a distance a voice he thought he knew, calling to him saying, “If you believe that Jesus is my Son with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind then you will be saved.” Silence returned for a moment as he trembled in fear. But, there again the noise in the streets grew stronger as the procession hurried by. The cries from the streets grew louder and the crowd grew in numbers. He could hear the horses hoofs and the crackling of whips, then he laid his head by his mothers side and feel asleep. It was the middle of the afternoon and he awoke, he nudged his mother and placed her things beside her side, he pulled her covers tighter as he kissed her cheeks. He remembered having a dream and being called from a distance and he knew he had to find out why. Outside it was dark and the sun was not shining down unto the streets as he made his way up to Golgotha Hill. As he approached he saw a crowd of soldiers laying on the ground holding their faces, and some women crying and praising God. And as he looked up he saw a wooden cross before him and a man hung there, his head bowed down, nails piercing his hands and feet and blood oozing down. He saw the scars the soldiers inflicted upon him and he remembered the dream and the face of that man he thought he’d known who hung there suspended between earth and heaven. It was Jesus and he slowly began to open his eyes, and he looked at the little crippled boy standing there with tears in his eyes and just as he took his last breath he looked at the little boy and smiled at him and a tear pierced his eye lids. And the little boy stretched out his hands and Christ’s tears touched his hands and the little boy fell to his feet and the women weeping came to him and picked him up and he stood up straight and he wanted to cry from the joy of disbelief and the miracle of saving faith. He wanted to climb that cross and bring Jesus down. Because, somehow he knew that, that man up on that cross had answered his prayers. He’d answered his hopes and dreams all at once, with one single tear. And just as he started to climb that cross, he heard a voice from the distance saying, My child, you get down from there, as he slipped and fell backwards, he turned and looked back down the hill. And there through the darkness and the strange fog he saw the image of his mother running up Golgotha Hill, calling out to him.

If I could believe in that look in your eyes ,once again, like I’ve done so many times before. Like when you walked in and out that door; like when you said, “I am Sorry I Hurt You baby”. Like when you swore you’d never do it again just as I gave back in. Like when you touched me and held me close or when you’d call in the middle of the night crying your heart out. Pretending you meant every word you’d swore to me. If only I could believe?

Come Let’s Make Jobs For All Americans

In My Opinion Unions Should Invest In All Unemployed Americans; After All Isn’t That What The Word “LABOR” Stands For?
By John R Hernandez,Jr.
Why don’t the Unions take that _Ten Billion_ they are planning to invest in retrofitting some commercial buildings and use it to help get people back to work? Not just the Union workers but those who have lost their jobs in semi and unskilled non-union positions!!!!!!! How much of that Ten Billion Union Dues money is going to help break the strangle hold of poverty on this nation? How much of that Ten Billion is gonna go for job training of high school drop outs? How much of that Ten Billion is gonna go to help get the non-union American Worker back on his feet and help to put food on his familie’s table or help pay for his health care or pay the rent? I support the Unions but I don’t support the arrogant use of Union Due’s Money to help the few while there are millions of unemployed Americans out there that need help. Why don’t they take some of that money and use it to make sure that all US Companies are utilizing the best practices to help hire all umemployed Americans and not utilizing Federal Job Creation Credits to hire only members of groups that are labeled “Povetry Affected Individuals”. In my opinion the Long Term Unemployed are Poverty Affected Individuals -therefore- Unions and the Federal Government should be making sure that the Workforce Innitiaves Programs includes all American workers -within their guidelines- and rules and not just a few. Read more about this by going to the petition page below -and signing this petition- to help get all long term unemployed Americans back to work now! Why should Daddy and or Mommy have to go home again and again and tell their child, “No honey the plant down the road said they are not doing any hiring today”?
BELOW ARE COMMENTS I HAVE MADE ON FACEBOOK AND OTHER PLACES ABOUT ISSUES…
ON THE ANTHONY CASE DECISION
Brittany you are right 110% for feeling angry over what appears to be an aggregious distortion of justice -for this child- of God whose life was taken at such an early age and who won’t get to run around and smile -ever again- like other children -will- the rest of their earthly lives. God is a loving and forgiving God, but God also says that even if you look with hate at your brethren -that- you have committed murder. God’s aim is that we learn to get along, to tow the line and not kill ourselves over petty issues; when there is so much to do right here in his kingdom. Just so you know; this child’s life was not a petty issue and neither were the 30 million aborted children’s lives. But, we as humans are admonished to look into our own souls to seek out our own inniquities and mistakes and wrongs against one another and then even against our own flesh and ask ourselves, “Are we able to forgive as he forgave?” Who do we blame when we look at the tragic epidemic of teenage suicide accross this nation and the world. When I look at it from the legal point of view I look at facts presented, but when I look at it with God’s eyes it may often lead to opposite directions -just because- His- authority is absolute. Learn to temper your pain with the facts that nothing escapes the hand of Almighty God -not even- in this case; his will be done even when we may not agree with God’s outcome. But know this that hate and injustice all pay the price in time in God’s eyes.
ON THE JOURNALIST WHO OUTTED HIMSELF THAT HE IS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN
He has been impersonating a citizen. Other people that come here to be citizens go through a lot of hard work to get to be citizens. To allow him to stay is to say that we in the Journailism Field – don’t have any- professional standards!!! This man violated all ethical standards when circumvented all legal avenues for the glorification of doing what he likes. He and all others like him need to be made to know that the law is the law. What if he stood up and said that he was a spy or a terrorists?? When someone crawls under the ground to get into the USA- it’s one thing- and when someone lies his way into a job by faking his -citizenship- in my opinion it should be a worst CRIME!! Because, its called fraud! Journalism like any other profession should be held to the same standards. Lying about certain things to get a job is one thing. People lie all the time to get a job, to get a date, to get a loan, etc.,.. But lying about your citizenship and how you got into this country takes lying to a much higher level! There’s a lot more to be said about this issue.
MY THOUGHTS ON INDIGENOUS AMERICANS
I have deep love for american indigenous people and in fact for all worldwide indigenous peoples. I believe what America did to the indigenous populations is wrong, but I know that some reparations have been made and the billions pumped into these communities prove this. I don’t agree with how some Indian Reservations Casino’s are run and the way many indigenous peoples are forced to live. Somehow my mind tells me there is some disbalance there that needs to be scrutinized further. I believe further that as nations and peoples begin to outgrow and become assimilated into a society -it becomes- the responsibility of that specific society of elders and leaders to do what is in the best interest of that individual segment of the population -of- that nation or country. You can’t turn around 200 hundred years later and plead ignorance when your asked what have you done to help your community evolve from that era to this era?
ON IMMIGRATION ISSUES
What gets me is how some people after being here for 20 or more years and getting to be extremely succesful can have the audacity to stand up and say.”yeh well they brought me here when I was a child so what; I still have not applied for citizenship- because- I have questions about this country -I don’t like- or agree with- so- I prefer to not file?” Millions of illegal alines live with no intentions whatsoever of ever becoming legal residents. Many are very wealthy and much of what they make goes back over there to fuel that economy instead of this one. Despicable!
Brutal Rape and Murder!! This should be a No Brainer for the jury!! But, I have seen people walk for worst than this. Look at the outcome of the Anthony Trial! Our criminal justice system is irrepaireably flawed. Money and public opinion have a scarry way of skewing the outcome of juury trials.
IMMIGRATION ISSUES CONTINUED;
In case you hadn’t noticed Bryan I am Latino, I know first hand what hatred and injustice is all about as well I am sure as any one who comes to this nation to make a better life. But I don’t agree that people should crash their way into this nation and get the benefits that other real citizens who have worked hard all their lives should get. But, there is a diference between us and them; and that difference is that we are certified legal citizens and they are not. Iam not against people applying for citizenship -the legal way- and I do believe that more needs to be done to reform the immigration laws to expand and include those who wish to come here and become citizens and productive members of this society. As for how long I have been watching -I can only tell you- that I have been watching and learning all my life. And before you start telling me about your citizenship let me inform you that many of the folks we are talking about here; are the children and grandchildren of the folks that we Americans stole not only their lands from but their dignity from. You remember American History I and II?
ON ABORTION AND CHILDHOOD DECEASES
Like an unborn child being torn apart by the hands of hatred so the lives of our most fragile aged’s hearts are torn apart from the torment of abandonment. How could there be such little love in a world spawned from love?
Lord don’t ever let me turn my face from all the pain and suffering in the world; I want to never forget the look in your eyes when you saw your baby boy hanging on that cross….JRH.
Tonight while we are enjoying the pleasures of our lusts; someone out there will be praying and crying for the ones eating out of dumpsters accross this nation and the world!
Thanking you could never diminish the prolonged pain of compassion; nevertheless if I did not thank you; only the echoes of my cries would be heard from inside…JRH711ndmh!
On learning to loose unnecesary weight:
I usualy charge thousands for my advice but for you right here a trinket worth much more…..slow yourself down…breathe and push away the stress….take a look inside and with every day that passes by; develop your own way of controlling compulsive behaviors; the by-products of interactions and reactions to the world around you….!
Thanking you could never diminish the prolonged pain of compassion; nevertheless if I did not thank you; only the echoes of my cries would be heard from inside…JRH711ndmh!

My Saturday is to wake up early to listen to the dogs barking at prowlers maybe other cats or rabbits that wander in the early day past them and they don’t like intruders in their space…I begin to think about life, about tomorrow, about living….I listen to the sermons from the pastors Adrian Rogers, David Jeremiah, Robi Zechariahs and others I love; as I think about things and read what I can on the net…as the day progresses I take a look outside I bring some water to the pepper plants and the oregano plant and the others I check up on…then I see a butterfly as I admire the sunflowers parching in the early sun she is whittling on top of the sunflower doing her work while dragonflies and bees and other flying insects try to bother her; she is patient at her job and I run to get the camera to capture this moment. But, I have only two pictures left in the camera and the wind and I cannot get to make up which one will win this tug of war as the wonder of it all unfolds and if it will come out okay as I snap the trigger and pause and listen as the camera makes its return to empty; automatically re-rolling the film inside I walk away as the sound of an airplane too far up in the sky to see flies by. I wonder why some here never plant anything, they live without seeing or feeling nature close to their hearts like it all is so taken for granted; so plain to them so last nights television movie or program; so what the taste of the dinner left in their minds, so like how hard it is to change the way they are; the way so like what they believe life has made of them.

Hoarding is Alive and Well in Today’s Corporate World
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 7/2011
With the latest July-2011 -jobs update- spelling doom and gloom for the 15 million and more unemployed; Corporate America has just fired another salvo at the US Labor Department by sending thousands more back out unto the unemployment lines.
Can you be defined as; an older American, handicapped, poor and Latino or Black or any number of other persons -who fall- or have fallen- below the poverty line; an ex-felon or someone with a criminal record, or just simply a member of the displaced long-term unemployed? If you said “yes” to any or a combination of any of the above, your chances of finding and securing a job are miserably minute. Why? As in Hitler’s era “undesirables” where those type-cast as a dispensable/expendable and as it reads on dictionary.reference.com the definition for dispensable is “–adjective 1. capable of being dispensed with or done without; not necessary or essential. 2.) capable of being dispensed or administered.” It has come to my attention that hoarding did not go out with the last Neanderthal Ice Age or neither has it’s popularity been diminished by the “Hoarders” show over satellite networks. No, my friends- the practice of hoarding is still alive and well across the globe. But, in my opinion the most hideous of places Hoarding is alive and growing is in Corporate America, –as-well-as-anywhere the possibility of a job will exchange hands between an employer or its agents and any possible prospect. Today, employers and their agents hoard jobs!! The reasons why they do this despicable act or acts is for the same reasons a child hoards candy or toys or anything near them. Hoarding is another way of exercising one’s power around their subordinates or peers. One barters this power by way of exchanging favors such as for admiration, status imaging, prowess, click building and maintenance as well as keeping out certain members of societal groups, etc.,,,! In some circles hoarding is big business and profitable for certain members of a specific race. Take for example; why are so many firemen and police “public servants” in the upper US East Coast members of a specific ethnic group? When one looks at the statistics one -like me- walks away scratching his head. Even in the face of all the laws that say that this should not be happening it is -right before- our eyes. That is hoarding! There are well over 15 million Americans today unemployed and –because- I have brought this issue up -I will be demonized. Not for speaking the truth –but- for not keeping my mouth shut and simply finding some –whole- somewhere unheard and unseen. Going against the grain has its pitfalls -in this society- and some have been buried like out in the middle of some landfill. Never the less, hoarding will continue unabated in Corporate America -until- those behind the walls of the US Labor Department decide to get up off their over- paid tushes and do something about it.
Your tireless unpaid Societal Servant,

OVERVIEW OF MY PETITION ON CHANGE.ORG
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2011-NDMH
Get America Working Again With My New Nationwide Program
My new program is important because nothing is getting done to help get a greater number of the 15 to 20 million people back to work. Corporations have become very skilled at figuring out ways to get more done with less. Because of the lucrative rewards of Workforce Initiatives via Job Credits; many companies have adopted unspoken rules and practices of separating the hiring pool and favoring TANF recipients and those on public assistance over others who are searching for work but don’t meet the Workforce Guidelines. By limiting the workforce to a certain segment of the population; this would benefit many corporations scavenging for job credits which I feel is borderline discrimination. Furthermore, this only helps to isolate available individuals seeking employment and forces them back to the unemployment lines. The states are doing very little to help get the long term unemployed back to work when they are not scrutinizing the process of hiring. Fifteen Million unemployed tells me there is something wrong here that needs to get fixed quick and forcing capable people back out on the streets while favoring others because that helps to line your pockets, is shameful and unfair. Outsourcing jobs has practically destroyed the semi skilled to skilled positions out there, while streamlining work details has affected the overall total makeup of most companies. Farming out -hiring processes- to temporary staffing agencies in order to transfer most of the payroll and general benefit responsibilities; tells me that corporations are still up to their old tricks. They are battening down the hatches and turning the American Workforce into another disposable commodity! In a society where more and more pressure is being placed on the few members of the workforce not affected by permanent lay offs or cut backs.
THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF MY NEW NATIONWIDE PROGRAM:
A Petition in Support of a Two Part Referendum: PART I: To Make States Accountable to Create Jobs Based on their Number of Unemployed Individuals Residents. PART II: In Order to Restore Our Economic Engine and Thereby Restore the Lives of 15 Million or More Unemployed Americans this Referendum Must Require Provisions for the Following to be Included as Guarantees to Insure the Success of this Effort.
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 6/11
Statement of Provisions:
When have you heard the feds going after any state because they reneged on their mandatory obligations to create an X number of jobs? What if we could (Provision #1) make them create X number of jobs and base that figure on the rate of unemployed individuals? So that now they have a federally mandated obligation to create jobs in their respective states. But wait it gets better! What if this is tied to another (Provision #2) obligation that would require every state department of labor to audit all their agencies within their state to make sure that all the information they provide to prospective job seekers was up to date, guaranteed reliable and that the jobs they sought out for job seekers were qualified jobs that met these guidelines. Which would guarantee a livable wage, not just based on the states minimum wage criteria -but- based on the particular individuals set of circumstances. For example if you have an individual who was making $2,000 per month but lost their job through no fault of their own? Then, the new guidelines would have to say that a formula based on that persons financial obligations to his family, to the roof over his or her head, to children living outside the home; for which he or she is responsible for providing every day subsistence -to be- counted including all his debts to creditors and any payments he or she is obligated to make. (Provision #3) To guarantee that while they are unemployed and for three years after they are reemployed that no court action can be taken against them for any unpaid fines, unpaid court orders, unpaid tax liens, unpaid backed up child support, unpaid student loans obligations, unpaid traffic fines, unpaid property taxes, unpaid obligations to any loans including interest.
This is a mandate; a referendum to see if it will be possible for the American people to get back on their feet without having to look over their backs just when they finally find work. It gives them piece of mind, and just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. Check this out! (Provision #4) A guarantee that if once they do get a job that satisfies all their necessities and they keep that job for a length of three years without interruption and they abide by all the rules of the prescribed agreement; that a percentage of their fines and debt will be forgiven and some of their debt will be forgiven in its entirety. How does this nation or this government expect to help get America back on its feet and productive (recession) again if all it wants to do is bail out the rich and famous and do nothing to bail out the long term unemployed and hurting. People are cash strapped, about to loose their homes and many already have; to hungry lenders. But if we could put a stop to that and guarantee to the American people that we will draw up a plan to help get them back on their feet and it will start with an agreement of -debt forgiveness- if they abide by all the rules of this agreement and in 36 months or so they can be almost or completely debt free. I imagine that, the small loan you may owe your old alma mater disappeared; because, you abided by the agreement that guaranteed you freedom and your transcripts back to go out and continue your blocked education dreams? Imagine all but a portion of your property taxes disappeared -because- you made the right decision and stuck by the plan. Imagine those huge federal student loan debts reduced so drastically you finally know you can breathe again -because- you followed the agreement guidelines. Imagine all debt gone or almost gone because you finally got an agreement that will guaranteed to bail you out, too; just like the big three and the multi-billion dollar financial institutions got? So what do you think? We got to roll up our sleeves and get 15 million people back on their feet -breathing again- and no care in the world for them. No more looking behind their shoulder, no more changing addresses every time the government or the credit card companies or the banks or any debtors come around with garnishment notices and liens? All gone or almost gone! Give us three years of your life, get through our boot camp Agreement Guidelines and soon you will have the freedom to travel, to invest again, to never again be afraid to open up a bank account and start saving again.

Read Petition Letter
Get America Working Nationwide Program
I just signed the following petition addressed to: President, House of Representatives, Senate, and Corporate America.
GetAmericaWorking Nationwide Program
My new program is important because nothing is getting done to help get a greater number of the 15 to 20 million people back to work. Corporations have become very skilled at figuring out ways to get more done with less. Because, of the lucrative rewards of Workforce Initiatives via Job Credits many companies have adopted unspoken rules and practices of separating the hiring pool and favoring TANF recipients and those on public assistance over others who are searching for work but don’t meet the Workforce Guidelines. By limiting the workforce to a certain segment of the population; this would benefit many corporations scavenging for job credits which I feel is borderline discrimination. Furthermore, this only helps to isolate available individuals seeking employment and forces them back to the unemployment lines. The states are doing very little to help get the long term back to work when they are not scrutinizing the process of hiring. Fifteen Million unemployed tells me there is something wrong here that needs to get fixed quick and forcing capable people back out on the streets while favoring others because that helps to line your pockets, is shameful and unfair. Outsourcing jobs has practically destroyed the semi skilled to skilled positions out there, while streamlining work details has affected the overall total makeup of most companies. Farming out -hiring processes- to temporary staffing agencies in order to transfer most of the payroll and general benefit responsibilities tells me that corporations are still up to their old tricks. In a society where more and more pressure is being placed on the few members of the workforce not affected by permanent lay offs or cut backs.

If you made it to the bottom of this document you may want to take another closer look at what I already mentioned above as to the why so many millions of Americans with Land and Home Contract Package Deals for purchase of homes have been completely ignored by everyone up on Capital Hill; during and after all the hearings and hoopla over the mortgage spectacles in the face of this most horrific of recessions. Shameful!!
Our Failure to Help the Less Fortunate Amongst us May be the Saddest Legacy we Leave Behind
Some Factual Data on the Transportation Needs of the Poor and Aging Populations in Rural Areas
Written and Edited by John R. Hernandez, Jr.
Hello everyone, I wanted to thank you all for your help with this petition and I thought I would offer you some scholarly data that might interest you. I have wanted to write about this issue for ever! I can remember putting proposals together as far back as some 15 to 20 years ago; that dealt with any social issue I came across. I have been a victim of transportation problems as I am sure some of you have at one time or another, in your life. The only research I did for this petition was the images that have been embedded in my mind throughout the years. The following data -you will find here- I decided to bring it to your attention –because- I have been concerned about the lack of attention or action this petition has been getting; as well as, I have been concerned about the lack of attention my other petitions have been getting. So, last night on the 17th of July I gathered up some factual data. Hoping, that your friends and family and their friends will see the facts as they have been collected. Although as the authors and researchers suggest that, in this extremely large study, “The aim of this study was to understand rural Black and White older adults’ self-reports of transportation difficulty.” The data collected by these statisticians reveals to us that there is a need for free and expanded transportation services that should be provided for the poor in rural areas and especially to those in the aging populations. Below are sample quotes from different investigators which reveal the negative effects of inadequate transportation services on the poor and elderly in rural areas. If you would like to study this subject further I urge you to visit; “http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2758564/ Transportation Difficulty of Black and White Rural Older Adults Nan Sook Park, Ph.D.,ab Lucinda L. Roff, Ph.D.,ab Fei Sun, Ph.D.,bc Michael W. Parker, Ph.D.,ab David L. Klemmack, Ph.D.,bd Patricia Sawyer, Ph.D.,ef and Richard M.

In emergency circumstances,… transportation difficulty can mean the difference between life and death (Gullette, 2006; Parker et al., 2007).” Furthermore, “Rural residents disproportionately experience transportation difficulty because rural areas are sparsely populated and lack public transportation services (Arcury et al., 2005a, 2005b). Rural elders are subject to higher transportation costs than their urban counterparts because walking and public transportation are typically not feasible options, and their trips are likely to be longer (Rosenbloom, 2004).” And, “Although transportation fundamentally influences access to various services and thus affects quality of life, 40% of theU.S.population in rural areas have no public transportation services available, and 25% have insufficient transportation (Glasgow, 2000a). In rural areas without public transportation, taxi services are rare or likely to be prohibitively expensive. Although some senior centers in rural areas provide van transportation, rural elders’ transportation options are typically limited to walking, bicycling, or using a private vehicle.” In Addition to that the authors of these papers suggest that, “The proportion of older persons who live in rural areas (14.7%) is higher than in metropolitan areas (11.9%) and rural older adults have to travel longer distances than urban older adults to access services and activities (Rosenbloom, 2004). Rural older adults tend to be older, have lower economic status, and be in poorer health than urban older adults (Roff & Klemmack, 2003).” My Thanks to all scientists and researchers who worked tirelessly on these projects to help with this issue -as I have- with this petition in my own small way -as well as- all of you who have taken the time to sign it and tell everyone you know; the importance of expanding transportation to the rural poor and elderly populations cannot be overlooked any longer. Can you imagine, when I was a small child I remember walking along dilapidated planks of old wood after the monsoon rains just to keep from slipping into the mud holes left behind. In those days the only means of transportation in the poorest of areas were your feet.
Thanks again, John R. Hernandez, Jr.
