“Save Our Children” – Trayvone – Emmett – Oscar – GD Remembers

Trayvon Benjamin Martin born February 5th, 1995 – perished February 26th, 2012

Emmett Louis Till born July 25th, 1941 perished August 28, 1955

Oscar Julius Grant III born February 27, 1986 perished January 1, 2009

These young men are part of a hideous history of violence against people of color – children in our communities, murdered because they were African-American. This nation, this diverse nation of ours harbor tales of mass lynching, cross burning, assassinations of prolific leaders slain in the prime of their lives. Today, “A Touch of Grace,” pauses to reflect on lives lost at the hands of predators against equal rights for all.

The injustice behind these deaths is a potent reminder of where we’ve been and where we are today. Our judicial system seems a breeding ground for racist who walk among us each day, hating who we are; despising us for not being white. Our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents lived during a time where water fountains and bathrooms were marked “Colored & White,” as if we were beneath them to even use the same facilities as them, as if our blackness would rub off of us and onto them in swimming pools.

This is why we must utilize education to understand the laws of this land, why we must be smarter than the laws that are used as scapegoats by the cowardice racist that hides behind them. These three young men will never know a future because they were slaughtered and will never see it unfold, never see who they could’ve been.
Each of these senseless murders should serve as a catalyst that forces us to rise and be part of the solution, as opposed to the problem. Behind prison bars we can do nothing, so let us be better than that.

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
