Here's to my Dearest Daughter, Ms. Yvette - Year 13

My Dearest Yvette,

Another year has passed.  Yes.  Each month on the 8th I remember and speak with JOY of remembering you my only child - yet overwhelming grief and forlorn.

I seek the rest of our family for solace - God the Father, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Sean, was the one who brought it to my attention this evening on behalf of the family-at-large.
Know that you are remembered with such compassion, special love.
Tonight Aunt Velda and Sean remembered your last conversation with them and the three of you laughing.  We never know the hour or moment of . . .

I think of you and try to recall some word, sentence, event, dress, outfit, job and travel you left in my memory bank.  You represent the epitome of all that I wanted.  I think of the little boy I dreamed that you had.  He runs around running around with golden locks.

Tonight I was drawn to a Casper Pumpkin.
It is year 13. It is 11:16pm.  It is September 8, 2017. Good Night for now.  I love you Buddie!

TINN – Team Internet-Net Neutrality News - August 16 - September 7, 2017

MILWAUKEE PROFESSIONALS ASSOCIATION LLC/MPA LLC first follow-up with since August 24, 2017 - Kick-Off.
Informational meeting for Lifeline (federal program) and WI Public Service Commission - Universal Service Fund Director Jeff Richter; Vanessa Llanas – Southeastern Region Rep – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin; Jennifer Potts – President, BID 39; Dawn Powell – President, Dawn to Dusk Forever Community Garden Group; Richard Kauper – President-Architect Amazing Architecture; Craig Jackson – Journal Photographer; & Mary Glass – Chair/CEO/Chief Visionary Officer – Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC.  MORE
BID 39 Board of Directors confirmed its interest and commitment to Team Internet-Net Neutrality Initiative to ensure that residential, commercial and service providers are connected to the Internet and each other.

 US #1
The growth of the day-to-day use of the Internet requires that the residential and commercial populations of MILWAUKEE that represent the urban stakeholder, taxpayer, voter, and worker requires a fast, state-of-the-art and dependable system for acquiring and sending data for quality of life and economic development communications.

Digital Inclusiveness is a gateway for neighborhoods to leverage quality of life and economic development while eradicating Enduring Concentrated Poverty.

The truth is, too many people of the public square, do not have direct access to necessary data that connect them to their government services, first responders, neighbor, employment, health care, education attainment, processing documents (email, text, fax, scanned paper), travel, news, media, groceries, dining, entertainment, safety prevention, voting, weather, traffic, transportation, and personal services.

Access to public systems provided by the government is sketchy, lack use, lack commitment, lack citizen participation, and in need of massive updates.

Private systems are cost-prohibitive and lack competitiveness.

Academic settings and public libraries require “massive tweaking” for public use in computer space, day and night-holiday use with updated software and hardware.

Elected officials are unaware and not hands-on with policies to ensure a more informed and computer savvy population in their districts and regions.

The Federal Communication Commission/FCC broadband service offered to the public December 2016 is called Lifeline broadband.  It requires an introduction to the People of Milwaukee, hands-on collaboration with service providers (public and private), and tweaking for appropriate and efficient services.

Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC seeks action-oriented fellowship, partnership, leadership, mentorship, entrepreneurship, apprenticeship, ownership, and stewardship in the marketplace with the government, private, public, non-profit and vendors of all type.

Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC first stops included the Federal Communication Commission, Free Press, Public Service Commission Wisconsin, and the Business Investment District 39 Center Street Marketplace
