I've started my 200 hours of community service. As you know, my journey to Africa was difficult. It started with a denial entry to the Republic of Congo, my own native country. Friends, just as yourself, continued to press on and hard for a smooth and safe journey onto my mother's arms.
I was able to bury Maman Lily with a whole army of friends and supporters behind me. I could have emailed you while in Brazzaville, but there were power outage and Wi-Fi connection.
Maman Lily Elizabeth Makouela Okoumou had signaled her departure from this earth with lightning and thunderstorm on Mother's Day (Sunday March 31, 2019) when she took her last breath. She wants us to remember and celebrate this moment as she transitions from the flesh to the spiritual realm of power. The second lightning we heard and saw happened in the midst of a family argument the day before her burial on Thursday April 04, 2019.
She was buried on Friday April 05, 2019. I had a flight scheduled for Saturday April 06, 2019.
My mom has expressed her gratitude from the heavens in many ways. This was remarkable when the family learned after the cemetery that my flight had changed from Saturday April 06, 2019 (economy class) to Friday April 05, 2019 (business class). The message was simple, "This operation is mission accomplished. Thank you for your tenacity. Travel in peace and be blessed. I will always be present."
I'd like to think that my mom passed away to embark on a special journey. The mission is to figure out what happened to my two nephews who passed away on Wednesday March 13, 2019.
Hopefully, with my new super power invested in me from Ma Lily, I can do greater things.

I, Patricia Okoumou, scaled the Statue of Liberty in the name of justice because this callous administration is in violation of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Donation
"When I climbed the Statue of Liberty on July 04, 2018, I wanted to express the urgency of stopping our government’s reprehensible and inhumane treatment of migrant children. I was fearless, bold and brave in the name of justice. I wanted no one to forget that children have been forced into cages and that we must do everything we can to stop the imprisonment of children. Even today many of these children are still in cages. Tender-aged children have been ripped away from nursing mothers. Toddlers are being asked to testify in court. Parents are torn apart with grief and very little has been done to reunite these families. As a matter of facts, Donald J. Trump’s profiteers, his cronies and minions are making billions of dollars on these concentration camps. On September 18th, FEMA chief Brock Long faced an investigation for violating ethics rules. Steve Benen from The MaddowBlog broke this story out, as reported by the Wall Street Journal." @pokoumou
