AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!

Probably some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.

Rented some tradition wooden plank boats used by fishermen in Ghana and met some young Ghanaians who definitely showed us a thing or two how it’s done. Thankful I was able to wade out and capture some awesome shots of these guys.

Man gotta go back home

#TBT Dynamic Africa History Post - Inspiration: “African Gold”.

From the ancient Southern African civilization of Mapungubwe, to the region formally known as the Gold Coast, for many African societies - both past and present - gold has and continues to play an important role in various aspects of their quotidien lives.

From the jewelry worn by women in the Sahara, Sahel and Senegambia regions, such as the kwottenai kanye earrings of Fulani women, the elaborate headdresses of Songhaï women, the gold jewelry and currency of the Moors and the Imazighen of North Africa, to the numerous gold cast items of the Ashanti and Akan people of Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire, gold has been used to represent status and wealth, accent spiritual and healing objects, and as adornments for special occassions.
