A letter to God…
A letter to God…
It is very easy to identify who you are in a relationship, but who are you when that relationship becomes challenged or even when it ends? Stay true to yourself, your heart, inner spirit, inner man; this is the center of who you are. Your heart is the core of your beingness! Your heart is filled with substance to supply yourself and others. This substance is love, like water it flows through you into others lives healing and delivering, for love is the greatest!
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Kim M. Warner
BEWAREFalse prophets have been speaking over lives in ways we can’t imagine. They’ve told us we would never amount to anything, they’ve told us we were bad, these false prophets have been people in our homes, communities and schools helping raise us. They’ve shown us unrealistic ways of living, counterfeit living, unproductive living. Beware of them around your children; for liars create liars and abusers continue to abuse. Adulterers continue to cheat, and jealousy continues to hate. These are all spirits of false reality appearing real.

Presenting a program with gifted children in mind….
Every child has experienced embarrassment or rejection in social sittings in some way or another, but kids with learning disabilities, intellectual, and behavioral disorders are often isolated and rejected, because of the extra care they require concerning learning. Children with these diagnosis often times are misunderstood by teachers and parents concerning their communication skills in learning academics and actions leaving negative stigmas on them throughout their school years.
Hero Corporation Community Development have set in place reading and writing programs that helps alleviate the frustration these Children experience by offering our services. Our programs targets struggling students with LD, intellectual, and behavior disorders. Our summer program begins as a pilot program June 8- July 30th, to set in motion the programs that will be offered throughout the school year.
Hero’s Summer Enrichment Program entails reading, writing and vocabulary. Reading, writing, and vocabulary will be dealt with by using the five components of reading, phonemic awareness, word decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Direct instruction in the areas targeted are the best approach for improving word recognition skills, reading and identifying words in students with learning disabilities. Direct instruction refers to reading out loud to a group and allowing them to write the story as they hear it. In many cases children hear and retain differently, which means the stories they write may be a little different. However, through word recognition and writing through story listening Hero instructors will become familiar with each child’s strengths and weaknesses. Weaknesses identified open up the ability to directly deal with targeted challenge areas for each child. Reading in this case is emphasized, because it is fundamentally and cognitively stimulating to the brain promoting intellectual enrichment which is generally said to be difficult for children with LD and behavior disorders to achieve. We believe our resources promote the enhancement of intellectual enrichment giving our children a chance to reach greater levels of success.
The program runs four days a week two hours toward academic enrichment and two hours of fun activities.
Facts and statics on children with LD and Behavior disorders:
What do parents say about learning disabilities? In a 2012 survey by NCLD, parents said living with a child who has LD can be challenging. Here are some of the issues they describe:
The public needs to be more informed on vast types of LD, behavior, Intellectual, and attention.
Misconceptions persist among the general public.
Here are some more interesting stats about students identified as having LD:
How are kids with LD doing in school?
High school students with LD have a higher dropout rate than other kids. In 2011, 19 percent dropped out, while 68 percent graduated with a regular diploma. The remainder of students received a certificate of completion.
Learning disabilities are lifelong disabilities, so they affect adults in college and the workforce, too. In the 2010 U.S. Census, 4.6 million Americans reported having LD—far more than the number who disclose their disability in college and the workplace.
In fact, survey data shows that within eight years of leaving high school, more than half of young adults with LD don’t consider themselves to have a disability. Two years after leaving high school, 52 percent of young adults no longer think so; after eight years it rises to 69 percent.
Here’s what life after high school looks like for adults with LD:

Looking at the statistics Hero Corporation Community Development desires to be the vehicle utilized to invest in a community of children that many have misunderstood. By adding resources, fundamentals, and motivation in areas of literacy that are needed to help them live a healthy and sustainable life we believe that we can be the change that many of these children and parents have been waiting on.

As a young person I have experienced this on many levels but mostly from my own people.
Because I have always carried myself in a way that showed I had respect for who and what I was, most people outside of my community thought and still do that I am an educator. Most of the people I met in the business world after I turn 21 gave me respect because I gave it to them first.
I think it was in my latter thirties before I really came out of the “I am an introvert” closet but when I did I did it with force.
I now let people know that you can not talk to me or treat me any other way then that which I treat you, I expect respect because I always bring respect. I don’t rise my voice if this is not the case, I simply state facts.
The funniest thing to me is that people who know me now find it impossible to believe that I was ever shy. When I first met people I may sit back and observe, feel them out to see if this is someone I want to include in my life. After 2 or 3 conversation I can tell if it is a go or no unless this person has the best acting skills I have ever seen and in that case when the truth person come out you either drop them like a hot potato or ease out of the relationship. My children, family, friends, acquaintances, church members, know that I will stand up and speak up for what I believe in. I treat people as I expect to be treated. I may be stern at times, goofy, a bit louder than necessary ( I can’t whisper), forget to do something, stubborn, cranky (I try to keep my crazy at my house) or as my daughter in law says “do everything as if it’s my last day (and it very well could be).
At this point, my life is great, my God is greater. I don’t have a large house, a luxury car, a doctorate degree but I am happy. I have a family whom I love and love me, grand children whom are the loves of my life, a husband who I love and who lets me live my life to the fullest, friends who I share good times with, a church I am at peace in, a pastor I adore (he is like my 4th son) and just all around “I am blessed.
I started this on one subject and ended on another to make the point that it does not matter how you start out in life if you make a conscious effort you can change this to be the person you wish to be. Strive for the best you possible. I came out of the closet (introvert closet) and came out with a vengeance. Just saying!
