Michael Jones and his wife, Heather, had 6 children. Adrian Jones, 7, was not Heather's bio child; he was a product of Michael's 1st marriage. Because of this, little Adrian was treated like an outsider; he was starved and cruelly abused.
The abuse inflicted upon this child included making him dig in the trash for his food, forcing him to stand in their filthy pool with water up to his neck for hours, strapping him blindfolded to an inversion table, and referring to him not not by name, but as "The Boy". They beat Adrian with brooms, made him stand outside in the freezing cold with nothing but a tee shirt on, and this is only a small portion of the abuse he suffered.
Heather, the step mother who should've done all in her power to save this boy, documented Adrian’s injuries with pictures saved on her computer. She claims she was actually abused and afraid to go for help, but really she was just as abusive as Michael.
Adrian died in the shower, starving, with his hands and legs bound. He had been in that shower for days. The Coroner said it was like looking at someone from a concentration camp, as malnourished as he was.
To get rid of Adrian's body, Michael bought 6 pigs to which he fed this prescious child. He thought that this would get rid of all evidence, but it did not; little Adrian was found in the pig pen.
On May 9th, 2017, Michael and Heather were both sentenced to life in prison with possibility of parole after 25 years.
I was in a FB group w/ this bitch, she was so judgemental of other moms, judging while she had this going on in her home. SMH. Last I checked her FB page was still up.
The Goddesses are coming forth in a fierce way!
Tonight two took flight out of the deck
Maat: integrity, fairness and justice. With Mercury stationing into retrograde tomorrow this #GODDESS appearing is everything. While she holds the scale, weighing guilt she also brings forth justice in all situations. Find comfort in knowing all shall be handled fairly. She protects in both business and personal relationships.
Maeve: the #goddess of feminine celebration and cyclical understanding. When this Goddess appears be mindful of your cycles; the energetic days, lazy days, mindful, focused and confused days. She comes forth to show you that the road is open.
Go forth #queen and #slay#GODDESS#oracledeck#intuitive#healer#intuition#justice#cycles#power#divinefeminine
Hey All! Been awhile because well...a new baby! But we are back and excited to start advocating again.
You might have noticed we changed our name (formally Blessedarethepoorblog). We chose the name Axia because in Greek it means value or worth, and that is one of our primary goals: to instill value and worth in those that society most often overlooks.
The poor, the vulnerable, the immigrant, the orphan, minorities. All of these groups are often told they are of less value than others.
But according to the Bible these are the exact people that God commands us to care for and to seek justice for.
So if God tells us they are so valuable and of worth to Him, then they are to us too! And our family has committed our lives to this!
The “collective” part is because whatever we as a family do (whether it be blogging, instagramming, support groups etc) we want it to be focused on advocating for the Axia in those who need it most!
We hope our posts encourage you and spur you to action. We are so glad you are here!
“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause. - Isaiah 1:17
I need to be back on gratitude- this week has thrown me some curves. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t like cold weather. But I love a good storm and it might be pain in arse to get around in. But damn. That ice storm was gorgeous. Here’s to finding beauty even when you don’t wanna.
玉 (yù) Jade - is important to Chinese culture because of its beauty, practical use, and social value.
Chinese people love jade not only because of its aesthetic beauty but also because of what it represents regarding social value. In the Li Ji (Book of Rites), Confucius said that there are 11 De, or virtues, represented in jade:
Thus, beyond monetary worth and materiality, jade is greatly prized as it stands for beauty, grace, and purity. As the Chinese saying goes: "gold has a value; jade is invaluable."
In the Book of Rites, Confucius wrote;
"The wise have likened jade to virtue. For them, its polish and brilliancy represent the whole of purity; its perfect compactness and extreme hardness represent the sureness of intelligence; its angles, which do not cut, although they seem sharp, represent justice; the pure and prolonged sound, which it gives forth when one strikes it, represents music.
Its color represents loyalty; its interior flaws, always showing themselves through the transparency, call to mind sincerity; its iridescent brightness represents heaven; its admirable substance, born of mountain and of water, represents the earth. Used alone without ornamentation it represents chastity. The price that the entire world attaches to it represents the truth.”
#flipsequins#s for Sophia 💜 who is on her second lunch box of the year...let’s see if #justice lasts longer than #potterybarnkids for her! (Connor still has all his pottery barn units in good condition! 🤷🏻♀️)
No last words … No goodbye … I was a senior in high school, sitting at an awards ceremony, anxiously waiting to go on stage to receive my honorary certificates for academic excellence when my phone lit up. I was told my father was involved in an “accident.” He was taken to a nearby hospital where hours later, he passed away. The residents came out and said, “He said something, but we didn’t understand what.” He walked out of the house that morning to go earn a living for his family and never came back. There aren’t enough words to describe the thereafter … The tragic loss of my 40 year old father in a truck accident due to the negligence of others moved me to become a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney. I made it my passion to seek justice on behalf of inured people – a powerful concept that resonates deeply with me. I completed my undergraduate studies at UCLA earning a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in Political Science and obtained a Juris Doctorate degree from Southwestern Law School. Since the date I was sworn in, I have represented plaintiffs in wrongful death matters and individuals who have sustained catastrophic and traumatic brain injuries. As with all matters of the heart, I found what I love to do, day in and day out – justice for the people …
