Tonight I write about my two Grandsons Omarion and Siameer.
I am so proud of them for staying focused in School with their grades and classwork, but I’m also excited for them being such great football players that I just had to write about them @2am.
OMARION started playing football when he was nine years old and brought home the Championship Game as he amazes his Coaches with much speed, hard tackles and quick touchdowns.
Omarion is now ten years old and already started his second year in football hitting hard, running fast and scoring touchdowns. The Coaches are so proud of him and encourages Omarion and his Mother to never give up. Football is Omarion passion and he strives for the best every time he plays. I’m happy to say that I am proud of him and I look forward to my grandson achievements as he continues to be great.
SIAMEER at 7 years old he was born to play. His first game with six defensive tackles with three of them on quarterbacks and him also making 4 touchdowns is simply astonishing. I’m so happy for Siameer because I know He is a winner indeed and anything that he sets his mind too, he will accomplish. My advice to him and his big brother Omarion is to never give up, because giving up is not an option. Keep striving for the best, you’re simply amazing and I love you both.

Cleft Lips and Palates
October 11, 2012
In West Africa, Mercy Ships works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, local physicians and other charities to provide life-enhancing and, in many cases, life-saving surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates.
This condition is easily repaired in the developed world, but babies in the developing world have little access to corrective surgery. As a result. they suffer from malnourishment, and the children who survive are often rejected and abandoned. In addition, specialized surgical training is provided to local African surgeons.

Most young people ages 12 to 20 do not drink. However, in 2012, about 9.3 million young people in this age group, or one out of four, had used alcohol. It is important to talk with young people early and often about the dangers of underage drinking. Helping them to understand that they do not need to drink to fit in and have fun is key. It is also important to teach them ways to say no and how to cope with peer pressure. Teachers and parents can use the resources on Too Smart to Start to begin the conversation.
