     Sunday May 05th was my last day at Roots of Peace Community Garden performing  the 200 hours of community service that the Department of Justice had  imposed upon me as punishment for embarrassing Donald J. Trump and his  vile administration. You can read more about how I feel after this accomplishment on my blog ( https://patriciaokoumou.com/blog/f/200-hrs-of-community-service-completed).

     Sunday May  12th is Mother's Day in the USA. I will be honoring my late mom (Elizabeth Makouela Okoumou, a/k/a #MaLily) on her first Mother's Day apart from this wicked world although #MaLily would agree that mother's day is every day.

Ma Lily Elizabeth Makouela Okoumou is resting in peace under a raspberry tree at Roots of Peace Community Garden on the North Shore of Staten Island, New York. We planted this raspberry tree and the flowers around it in memory and honor of #MaLily's spiritual strength. She had healing powers. So, come visit this healing tree for sanctuary, peace and harmony with Mother Earth.

     I do miss Africa plenty. I want to start a foundation for women in Africa to help build lives and restore the souls of many who have lost hope in humanity. Anyone with such expertise or connection, please do not hesitate to contact me via my website: https://patriciaokoumou.com (under contact us).

     Happy Mother's Day, World!

Dearest, I am thankful for your financial contribution to my mom's funeral. I am back to Staten Island, New York.

It was a difficult journey that started with Jomo Kenyatta International Airport denying my entry to Republic of Congo. Because we pressed on and hard, a whole army of friends and supporters helped me bury Elizabeth "Lily" Makouela Okoumou.

I did see your contribution while in Brazzaville, but I could not thank you at the time due to multiple power loss (electricity) 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). She wants us to remember and celebrate that moment as she transitioned 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 was successful. I am grateful for your tenacity. Might you travel in peace. Be blessed, my darling. 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✌.

My dearest,

I am heading to court this morning 03/27/19. I want to retrieve my U.S. passport from Donald John Trump's Department of Justice because my mom has been in the coma since yesterday morning (03/26/19).
I am leaving the United States of America today 03/27/19. The goal is to hold my mother's hand, kiss her on the cheek and whisper, "I love you." She is in a hospital (Brazzaville, Republic of Congo).
I am thankful to my friends and supporters who showed up at sentencing (03/19/19), to those who were with me in spirit, to those who updated each other on such an important date and to you for making your financial contribution towards my work today.
Federal Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein has rebuked my activism - an act of bravery to land a voice to the voiceless. Ask Judge Gorenstein to read the Declaration of Independence. Ask him why he is embarrassed to talk about The “migrant” Children in the cages. Judge Gorenstein doesn’t seem to think that Donald J. Trump’s national security declaration is a stunt. How cynical!
Trump should be wearing shackles just as the government had me on an ankle electronic monitor for violating the conditions of my bail when I climbed CEO Juan Sanchez South West Key Detention Center.
Trump has ignored court orders to reunite the Central American families. He has lied under oath of office; yet, him and his vile administration get a slap on the wrist while I get five years probation, plus 200 hours of community service. The moral compass of our governmental institutions is bankrupt.
I was extremely exhausted when the judge had overwhelmed me with the job search; nevertheless, #wepersisted. I did land a job as Site Coordinator & Community Liaison for Salvage Art Institute. Many people are saying that I've already served my community by climbing the Statue of Liberty and attending numerous social justice events.
Certainly, I am thankful that I am not in jail. I am happy the shackles have come off (no home confinement and stupid rules), but five years of probation is too excessive.
I'm raising money for support of my activism work that the Trump's Department of Justice wants to shut down by forcing me to be employed. They also want to shut me up. That's why I was wearing a clear duck tape over my mouth at sentencing. I am not afraid!
Follow me please and ask friends and family members to do the same.

Dearest,
I  am thankful to my friends and supporters who showed up at sentencing, to those  who were with me in spirit, to those who updated each other on my  sentence and to you for making your financial contribution towards my work today.Federal Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein has  rebuked my activism and bravery on behalf of migrant babies. Someone please read the Declaration of Independence to Judge Gorenstein. Ask him why is he embarrassed to talk about The “migrant” Children in cages. Ask Judge Gorenstein if he doesn’t think that Donald John Trump’s   national security declaration is a stunt. Stop being cynical, man! Trump should be wearing  shackles as the government had me on ankle electronic monitor for  violating the conditions of my bail. Trump has  ignored court orders to  reunite the Central American families. He has lied under oath of  office; yet, him and his vile administration get a slap on the wrist  while I get five years of probation, plus 200 hours of community  service. The  moral compass of our governmental institutions is bankrupt. The  court had overwhelmed me with the job search that I was extremely  exhausted. Nevertheless, #wepersisted and I was able to land a job with  Salvage Art Institute. God sent Ms. Elkita Krajewska, the right person  to the rescue.Meanwhile, probation is being incompetent unable to  set conditions that fit the crime (petty crime). They have imposed  full-time employment when the court is contented with my part-time  position as Site Coordinator & Community Liaison for  Salvage Art Institute.Many people are saying that I've already served my community by climbing the Statue of  Liberty and attending numerous social justice events since Independence  Day.I  am thankful that I am not in jail. I am happy the shackles have  come off (no home confinement and stupid rules), but five years of  probation is too excessive!The feds call today (03/22/19) to schedule an  appointment for a home visit on Monday. They thought sitting down  comfortably is ideal to get acquainted with me. I am not having any of  that pep talk in my own home, knowing that the police can place me on a  choke-hold without mercy and still get away with murdering a black immigrant woman. We do have a history of police murdering black people without suffering the consequences for their violence.I  am looking forward to the 200 community service. It suits me perfectly  as I love helping others and I have already done tons of community  services; unfortunately, my activism is being silenced. Let's hope that probation does not ask me to clean some toilets.I'm raising money for support of my activist work that the Trump's Department of Justice wants to shut down by forcing me to be employed.Follow me please and ask friends and family members to do the same.
