August 21, 2008-You may already know... And you may not understand‏

But Ohio Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones passed yesterday. She was discovered unconscious in her car as her car was seen "weaving erractically" done the highway. After she was rushed to the hospital it was discovered she sufferred a brain aneurysm. She was a wonderful woman who was raised in the district she would eventually serve as it's congresswoman. She was a woman strong in her convictions and was one of the ONLY elected offical that called Bush out on his mess and voted against the increased funding on the Iraq war. She also spearheaded the "cleaning up" of the House of Reps following the disgraceful scandal of Rep. Foley and the House Page...

It's sad to admit that there are so many people that we can still look up to and nobody cares to acknowledge them. No disrespect (AND I AM NOT DOWN PLAYING THE LOST LIVES OF ANYONE), but when an artist passes it is a great uproar amongst our community, but someone who spent their lives trying to serve and uplift our community is barely given a mention. As I have said time and again we need to do better and expand out berth of knowledge. If you want to learn about this great woman who passed please read the link below.
