According to family those injuriesexacerbated by inadequate medical care from the U.S. Veterans Administration — made it difficult for Perez to find work after his honorable discharge from the army. He was convicted in 2010 for a non-violent drug offense. What Miguel was charged and did a sentence for was a non-violent drug conviction. He never hurt anyone, said Emma Lozano of the Lincoln United Methodist Church. Perez completed a seven-year sentence but was immediately handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement upon his release in September. Perez and his family had been fighting the deportation proceedings in court, arguing that he faces particular risks being deported back to Mexico where, according to his lawyer Chris Bergin, U.S. veterans are targeted for recruitment into drug cartels. Those kinds of people are immediately targeted upon entry to Mexico as people who can help criminal gangs, cartels, through their military experience, their weapons training, all that.

Once your government takes this courageous act, many reluctant European countries would be encouraged to follow suit. Already 138 countries including the Holy See recognize Palestinian statehood. Your contribution to ending the Israel/Palestine conflict would not only save Israeli and Palestinian lives but could also usher in an era of peace and help to end bloody conflicts and acts of violence elsewhere in the Middle East and throughout the world. Prime Minister, let Great Britain lead the way to peace under your brave and wise guidance. Sincerely, Rev. Dr. Alex Awad Author, pastor, and retired missionary of the United Methodist Church

" Walcott himself proudly celebrated his role as a Caribbean writer. "I am primarily, absolutely a Caribbean writer," he once said during a 1985 interview published in The Paris Review. "The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself. I have never felt inhibited in trying to write as well as the greatest English poets." Walcott was born in St. Lucia's capital of Castries on January 23, 1930 to a Methodist schoolteacher mother and a civil servant father, an aspiring artist who died when Walcott and his twin brother, Roderick, were babies. His mother, Alix, instilled the love of language in her children, often reciting Shakespeare and reading aloud other classics of English literature. In his autobiographical essay, "What the Twilight Says," he wrote: "Both the patois of the street and the language of the classroom hid the elation of discovery.

In the eight years since President George W. Bush boarded the Marine Corps helicopter waiting to take him and his wife Laura away from the U.S. Capitol after President Barack Obama's inauguration, he's rarely looked back.And for the most part, he's avoid the media spotlight. Bush says that's by "design." "I don't want to undermine our presidents," he told VOA in a recent interview at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. "I didn't want to undermine President Obama and I don't want to undermine President Trump," he explained. That doesn't stop supporters and friends from encouraging him to weigh in on issues dominating national headlines. "What's interesting is when President Obama was president, people from Texas in the heartland would call me and say, ‘You've got to speak out.

Paula Fox, a prize-winning author who created high art out of imagined chaos in such novels as Poor George and Desperate Characters and out of the real-life upheavals in her memoir Borrowed Finery, has died at age 93. Her daughter, Linda Carroll, told The Associated Press that Fox died Wednesday at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. She had been in failing health. Abandoned as a girl by her parents, a single mother before age 20, Fox used finely crafted prose to write again and again about breakdown and disruption, what happens under the “surface of things.” In Poor George, her debut novel, Fox told of a bored schoolteacher and the teen vagrant who upends his life. Desperate Characters, her most highly regarded work of fiction, is a portrait of New York City’s civic and domestic decline in the 1960s, a plague symbolized by the bite of a stray cat. “It seems to me that in life, behind all these names and things and people and forces, there’s a dark energy,” Fox told The Associated Press in 2011.
