  1. Thanks so much Rachelle for your support

    1. You're welcome. Always glad to support my brothers and sisters. :)

  2. Ok. Allow me to first set a context for this blog to everyone that may read this.

    First, I am a man, a father, a son, a brother, and an uncle. Secondly, I am an entrepreneur, a mentor, a college graduate, a teacher, minister, life coach and global leader. I have travelled the world, been drafted by the New York Yankees to play professional baseball, received a full scholarship to play Division I baseball, sold every narcotic known to man, and spent several years of my life serving time within the California Department of Correction and Rehabilitation. Why am I sharing this depth of intimate, personal insight into my life, my journey? The answer to that is simple: so that you, the reader can have a clear understanding of the lens from which I am writing.

    In years past I use to wonder and ponder the question “why me”? “Why do I have to go through SOOO much “hell” in life”? “Who am I?” “Why me Lord”? Then, in the midst of the storm, I couldn’t see it, I didn’t get it. But now, I do. My pains, sufferings, hurts, losses and anguish wasn’t about me. It was about my purpose! This is what human life is all about….discovering our divine given purposes! We ALL have one! What measures are you willing to go to in order to discover yours?!

    In “Reasons for Hatred” author Hadassah Thomas-Martin vividly tells of the “hell” in her life, the pain, disrespect, trauma, hurts and losses during a very pivotal time. Her story connects with your soul, to the core of you. Each and every one of us can connect with some part of Hadassah’s powerful story. You know why? Because each and every one of us have experienced some level of hurt, violation, trauma, disrespect and/or dysfunction in our lives, either directly or within our families. EVERY ONE OF US! In that, the $64,000 question is: how do we react to these experiences? Do we hold onto the impact of them? Become angry, bitter and guarded? Do we hate? Do we medicate? Eat? Shop? Or even want to kill?

    Here lays the power in “Reasons for Hatred”. Hadassah speaks to the traumatic experiences of a time in her life and how they impacted her. Resulting in a REAL seed of hatred to taking root within her, fully developing, to the degree of being prepared to kill or prepared to die. But she doesn’t stop there. After she’s masterfully woven the pieces of her reasons for hatred together, she then humbly describes the steps it took for her to overcome those reasons for hatred! This is A MUST READ BOOK!

    You know…it’s said that “it takes pain to birth greatness”. And I say, indeed it does! After reading “Reasons for Hatred” I now have a much deeper and clearer understanding of the degree of pain it truly took to produce the greatness in me.

    Hadassah Thomas-Martin is not only a phenomenal author. Even more importantly, she is my mother. I never really KNEW my mother’s history, the drive behind her passion, the fuel for her unyielding support and unconditional love for me. “Reasons for Hatred” has opened my eyes. Mom…without you, your strength, fight, will and humility I would not be who/where/what I am today! I am all of those things I listed in the beginning of this blog, but YOU are why I AM WHO I AM NOW! I love you dearly.


  3. Vernon, thanks so much for your heartfelt comment! There is so much hurt, pain and badness in life, but when flowers grow out of manure, we rejoice. Your mother sounds like an extraordinary person. It's hard, isn't it? But there is no pit too deep that God can't dig you out of it. Just like there's no hole too big that God can't fill.

    God bless you, Rachelle
