Slow to Respond: Obama Sends Only A Letter to Ebola Widow

The Story of Decontee Sawyer, Executive Director of Kofa Foundation, is one of power, strength, humility and grace in the midst of grief and loss. It is also the silent realization that it is not government but God that will provide and protect when all else fails. Patrick Sawyer wanted nothing more than to return to his wife, Decontee, and his three children, Ava (6), Mia (5), Bella (18mos). Yet, having contracted Ebola from his sister while traveling upon the African continent, the International Lawyer died the death of an African pariah and American vagabond. The H5N1 Blog [http://crofsblogs.typepad.com/h5n1/2014/07/ebola-in-nigeriapatrick-...] reports:

“Looking to get to the bottom of Sawyer’s strange ailment on the Asky Airline flight, which Sawyer transferred on in Togo, hospital officials say, he was tested for both malaria and HIV AIDS. However, when both tests came back negative, he was then asked whether he had made contact with any person with the Ebola Virus, to which Sawyer denied. Sawyer’s sister, Princess had died of the deadly virus on Monday, July 7, 2014 at the Catholic Hospital in Monrovia. On Friday, July 25, 2014, 18 days later, Sawyer died in Lagos.”

Isolated by a nation that feared him a security threat and considered undesirable by his President, whom thought him a needless political risk going into the Mid Term Elections, Patrick entered eternity without glancing upon his beloved children or holding the hand of the woman whom sowed tears the day she said “I Do” to him. All he desired was one last look, one last touch.

Patrick was a conservative that wanted his home nation, Liberia, to extol the same freedoms and liberties that his new home nation, the United States, constitute. He desired that Liberia pursue the strategies of free markets that bring about personal property ownership, technological advances and cultural stability. He executed business on behalf of Liberia but sought the peace and freedom of the US. Yet, his old home defiled his good name and his new home silenced itself when he was in greatest need. Cursed from Sovereign to Sovereign, Patrick Sawyer became the Poster for a Threat that President Barack Obama and his Administration were not prepared to handle: Ebola.

Decontee, a Progressive, had come to a slow but subtle realization: “Obama was slow to respond”. She had voted for him and every part of her inner being knew that he would not disappoint. He had failed in other areas but, in this moment of life and death, he most certainly would defend. However, the most that she has received in terms of help from the White House is a letter offering condolences and pledging assistance. (The letter also included a voter registration form and donor form for Hillary Clinton 2016 but that’s to be expected. Laugh Out Loud! I digress). Since his untimely death, Decontee Sawyer has fought both nations’ leaders to obtain proofs of death and to ascertain the rightful subsidy to provide for her family’s needs. She has been unduly criticized by Liberians for speaking out and by Americans for not demanding more of the Administration. However, she perseveres and seeks to meet the needs of her children including, on that requires special services. Recently, it was reported that US Senator Al Franken met with her for three hours to assist her in obtaining Social Security Survivor Benefits.

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
