Shaking My Head

A 27-year-old Connecticut woman, who was either unaware she was pregnant or was hiding her pregnancy, was found dead in her home yesterday after giving birth to triplets alone in the house.

The woman’s mother arrived home about 1 p.m. and found her daughter and the three infants, all boys, on the floor, police Detective Ben Trabka said.

Trabka would not identify the woman, but sources said she was Victoria Hope, 27. The house is owned by her parents, William and Frances Hope.

“We received a medical call and found that a woman had died,” Trabka said. “It appears that she died giving birth to the triplets in the house.”

Autopsy results were not available Tuesday night.

It appeared the triplets were carried full-term, Trabka said, although he added the family was apparently unaware that Hope was pregnant.

Hope was the mother of two other children, a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, Mihalko said.

Jamie Sandin, who knew Hope since their freshman year at Shelton High School, said she was shocked when she heard her best friend of 13 years had died.

“My legs went numb, I got nauseous. I couldn’t understand how it could happen,” she said. “I called my mom; I didn’t know what else to do.”

Sandin said her death is a devastating loss.

“She was an incredible mother, a loyal friend and she touched everyone’s life in a positive way,” she said. “We always hung out and would have a great time together.”

Sandin said she had no idea her best friend was pregnant.

“I spoke with her yesterday,” she said. “I never heard her say anything about it.”

She said she just wants to know why she didn’t tell anyone — including her boyfriend, Ricky, the father of her two children, Devin, 6, and Gabby, 2.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, death from childbirth is relatively rare, with fewer than 600 American women dying annually while giving birth as of 2006.

This is so sad. We can’t help but wonder how she carried triplets to full term without her pregnancy being obvious to everyone? This seems to be a deadly case of denial. With proper prenatal care those four deaths may have been prevented!!!

TIGER STOP LYING YOU KNOW YOUR WIFE BEAT YOU!!!!!

The Windemere Police Department says Tiger’s wife went outside, saw that her husband had struck a fire hydrant and a tree, and then went back inside the house for a golf club to use to try and extricate him from the vehicle. But we’ve learned Nordegren told a very different story to the Florida Highway Patrol, and it does not involve going back in the house for a club. Our sources will not allow us to be more specific.

And we’ve learned there was no blood found on the steering wheel of Tiger’s SUV — putting into serious doubt that Tiger sustained his injuries from the crash.

As we first reported, Tiger had a conversation with a friend yesterday, in which he said his wife had confronted him over reports he was involved with another woman … and that his wife scratched his face up during the argument. Tiger told the friend he then left the house, started driving off and his wife then came out with a golf club, striking the vehicle. Tiger then became distracted and hit the hydrant and then a nearby tree.

We’re told cops will interview Tiger and his wife later today.

UPDATE: A neighbor tells TMZ they saw cops show up at Tiger’s house this morning — only to get turned away again. Tiger’s wife, Elin, was spotted (below) driving out of the Isleworth subdivision in Windermere earlier today.

What’s Up With The Runaway Balloon? – THE BOY HAS BEEN FOUND ALIVE!!!!!

Why in the world is a father in the back yard building something that could possible endanger his child?  Would you have a swimming pool in your back yard that is not gated in or you are not monitoring?  And what’s up with the thrill of chasing tornados?  I’m confused as to how this even happen?  And if it was seen via the Television by millions of viewers then could someone have possibly seen the bottom fall out with the child?

I have so many questions.  I’m totally lost here!  Is this a case of child negligence?  And how come the Big brother didn’t pull the younger brother out or yell or say stop?  And what do they mean that the balloon wasn’t meant to carry anyone?  How were they going to chase the tornado then?

Is it me or is there some information missing from this story?

Will the family be finned because they had to shut down the Denver airport?  Will the passengers at the airport be paid back for their delayed/missed flights and/or connecting flights?

Either way this is a terrible situation and when its all said and done I pray that they find the little boy.  I’m a parent and I can only imagine how they are feeling right now.

Venting Via my Blog

My heart is so heavy right now!  I guess I should have never gone on that youtube site to look at the teenager being beat in Chicago.  Initially I had just heard of it and was reading the media outlets.  But after watching it you have to be dead not to feel something.  I just don’t know what to say or do.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love the kids.  I love working with them and encouraging them.  One day while in Atlanta on my way to my sister house we saw three little girls and three little boys going into the bushes at around midnight.  I spoke in a loud voice asking LaVerne to stop so that I could tell the little girls not to go into the woods this time of night with those little boys.  I knew they were up to no good.  But she said no.  She said that she wasn’t getting involved.  I believe that this was in June.  Just recently last week I had a dream that those girls were found dead.

One day I was in the Mall with Reggie and we saw this little boy with is his pants sagging.  I asked Reggie to say something to the little boy and he said no.  So I was going to say something to him instead and Reggie pulled me away and said Sandra come one and leave people alone.

I have a mentee that is a teenage mom (and so was I) that I work with.  One day she told me about her baby daddy hitting on her and I was driving around South Dallas trying to find this kid to speak to him.

These are just a few of the situations I’m sharing with you all now.  But there are so many more.  Its a sad day when the adults are afraid to chastise the youth today because of fear of them hurting us.  I remember when I was coming up my elementary teacher Ms. Hill would pull my ears because I had a big mouth and was always running it.  My oh my when I saw her heading towards my desk I knew I was in for that ear to be pulled red.  My granny didn’t say a word because she knew Ms. Hill was making sure that I got my lesson.  We have moved away from this as a nation.  No one wants the teachers to discipline the children although they are at the school 8 hours a day.  Then when they get home we so tired or so occupied on facebook and other things that we don’t pay them any attention either.  So  you have these kids with hours of no chastisement, no structure, no discipline, but yet we expect them to be the next President Obama.  Probably not gone happen.  Even the bible says that Jesus Chastised those that he loved.

It’s in my heart to help young people.  They have so many options today.   Do you know that all children of all backgrounds and socio-economic status can attend Harvard??  When I was a child Harvard was not even in my vocabulary.  But look at our children today.  The sky is the limit.  Often times they don’t even know this. That is why the shoot for some dreams.  That is way they take the easy way out.   So someone must tell them.  How come we don’t have more lawyers, doctors, Accountant, Engineers, CEOs, CFOs, COOs?  Because we are not showing them how to get into these fields.  But we shower them with the latest video games, the latest clothes, we allow them to have all those stupid hair cuts, color in your hair.  People we must tighten our shot groups and take our kids back!!!  It’s too simple!!!

I believe that our youth are hurting for many reasons.  You have some that are from single parent homes, some have been molested by family members that they looked up too, some are intimidated by other kids being placed higher then them, some are jealous over material things, some have learning disabilities that we are overlooking, some are missing their fathers, some have drug habits, some were carried by parents that were doing drugs while they were in the womb.  So many other factors come into play.  Our  babies need help.  Some are adults now that never got the help that they needed.

The system is going to put them in jail, what will that solve?  Some are going to get the death penalty, what will that solve?  Some we will let just wither away, what will that solve?  I don’t know what to do and I don’t know all the answers.  All my life I’ve been a lover of numbers.  But I’m human and I hurt when I see my young people going through.  I don’t care what color they are.  I’m a soldier and I’m green.  I’ve lived all over the world and I love people.  I love children.  I’m telling you that they need love.  And more love and then some more love!!!  But they also need discipline, they need structure, we can’t be their friends.  That is clearly not working.

What are we going to do?  I don’t know so if someone wants to help me please let me know.  I can start by offering them The Sandra Parks School of Etiquette.  You can find us on line at http://www.sandraparksschoolofetiquette.com or call 972.838.0106

Message to our young brothers in Chicago by Nas

I’m from Chicago and what is happening up there is really disturbing for I still have nieces and nephews that walk those streets.  Lets be in constant prayer for our youth all over.  Read this below and please leave comments:

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars!   Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for.  I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say, she say”!!!!! “I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest “n*gga” breathing.  And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at.  Look who’s watching us young warriors, look who’s throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors…. We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS….and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I’m with you young warriors. You’re me and I’m you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

This sh*t sucks !!

Let it go my young brothers, let it go!!!
