Here is where I begin to
write upon your heart as
my fingers do the talking.
Mayor Steve Benjamin, Columbia's
first African American Mayor, was attacked
by satan after he was voted in as
Columbia, SC's new mayor. At dawn,
the morning after, another car and he
collided. The other driver was
hospitalized in critical condition.
Our new mayor is a praying christian
who is in touch with the Holy Spirit and
people. How do I know? When I called
to pray he returned my call and
quoted scripture with me.
The Holy Spirit spoke through him.
We spoke as old friends
We need caring people in government.
Who are not ashame to pray
in the public with ordinary people.
We need this intellectual christian to
lead our city into this new era of change.
One who is not afraid to lead all people
in a city where there is stinking thinking
by a State Senator who calls other
leaders ragheads and believes a
red neck is a good thing.
The Department of Defense taught me
that the red scarf meant bring lunch
to the fields, the farmers are hungry.
Other than this people who live
by the flag of jim crow mentality
live with ASSumed Superiority.
I don't know about you
but after someone painted
on our public city building,
"no Black Mayor in City Hall"
I will pray daily for Mr Benjamin.
I do hope you will remember
to pray with me.
Praise the Lord for the wonderful
man and his beautiful family, and
"Let no weapon formed against
