Popular protest in Mexico - #YoSoy132

Around the world people are challenging the status quo. North America has not been passed over when it comes to the desire for positive change. The Occupy Movement has not faded away even though the mainstream media is not been giving it top billing of late. Dissatisfaction in Mexico is also not getting the press it could be, relative to the numbers of people hitting the streets. See the following report for an overview of the popular #yosoy123 movement in Mexico.

More inspiration for pastor Corey Brooks

Most of us are not even walking a few miles let alone across America. I know there have to be times when it hurts or it's too hot or too humid and times when it feels like it's too much. I want you to know that there are a lot of us pulling for you and your lofty goals. I think that it's fitting to dedicate this song by one of our late great Chicago born artists - Curtis Mayfield. The message is clear. Much Love Brother Brooks
