Re: “Being transgender in Atlanta

Tracee and Jamie I think that this is a great article. I have great hopes that the city will move forward on these issues in a timely manner. I want you to know that I am working to make sure that happens.

Re: “Midtown activist Peggy Denby retires

Ms. Demby I am so sorry to say that you want be missed by many. Last year your evil words that you used to describe trans-non conforming women doing survival sex work in mid-town reminded of words used to describe people of color during the Jim Crow Era and the KKK. Peace be with you Peggy Demby, God knows you could surely use it.

Re: “Activists: Attack on two transgender women is 'horrifying display of transphobia and violence'

I am on Marta any where from 6 to 8 times a day and unfortunately the bullies and thugs that ride Marta everyday. They bully trans folks, the homeless, and folks with mental health issues. These folks seek out people that they perceive as weak, that is what cowards do. And until Marta police or the people that ride Marta stands up to these folks it will continue. And usually it only takes one person to speak out against what is happening usually the rest of the folks on the train follow suit. I never stand by and watch someone be verbally or physically assaulted while I am riding Marta. If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything!!!

Re: “Downtown church fencing off alleyway where homeless men, women sleep

Let me just say this first, I am a proud member of Central Presbyterian, I am just not proud of the fact that Central has chosen to a fence and a gate up. I have worked tirelessly to help the cities homeless population and sex workers off the streets of Atlanta. And as far as who is obligated to help the homeless and marginalized citizens of Atlanta, we all are responsible maybe not by man's law, we surely are by God's law and his teachings. Matthew 25:31-46 makes it very clear what our responsibilities are to our fellow men, women and children are. There is so much wrong with the system that is suppose to help Atlanta's marginalized population that it makes me sick. The crime that happens at Central mostly comes from folks who are not regulars that sleep in back of the church. Urination and defecation that occurs I offered to clean that up myself. the people have been sleeping back there for because they feel safe. Even when the shelter ( which is run strictly) by volunteers is open for six months we still have people sleeping behind the church because there are not enough shelter beds to house all of the marginalized folks in Atlanta. I want to give all of you with those negative comments three suggestions to open your eyes. 1. Call the and offer to volunteer over night at our shelter so it can stay open year round. 2. Go to my Facebook page it is a public page and look at the pictures and read some of the stories. 3. Come with me on my outreach at night to these folks and see what it is really like for the men, women and children that have nowhere go once the sun sets, because once we bear witness, when we become the situation — homelessness, poverty, illness, violence, death — the right action arises by itself. We don’t have to worry about what to do. We don't have to figure out solutions ahead of time. Peacemaking is the functioning of bearing witness. Once we listen with our entire body and mind, loving action arises. . Please contact me @ rancifermarshall@gmail.com or call or text me @ (678) 396-9062 The poverty of this century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied...but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.
We can't impose our own goals, wishes, or help on anyone. We can only teach, support, and love. We can give them more opportunities, more choices. Then we love them regardless of the choices they make, hoping that they will learn to make better ones in the future. And for those of you who want to know how many chances a person should get, I say to you, just as many chances as God has given you
