Anna’s Prepared Remarks At The Zoo Rally

Today we stand here on a balmy summer day in Tulsa, Ok – for some like my daughter it is the first day of school.  Thank you for being here.

 We hold these truths to be self evident that we were endowed by our Creator  …

It is as if this Truth is no longer self-evident –

Unless we line everything up to the way the Creator intended it to be – it will be broken.  We must declare today just as our forefathers did with the Declaration that our Creator had and has a plan before the foundation of this earth for you and me for such a time as this.

Over 200 years ago our forefathers were at a cross roads as they wrote the foundation document of our nation.  They were unable to agree upon the direction and old Ben Franklin stood to address the Constitutional Congress asking them to call upon their Creator and Divine Providence just as they did during the Revolutionary War; not forgetting Him as they designed what was to become one of the most powerful documents outside of scripture.  Prayer began that day prior to all meetings in order to move ahead according to the Creator’s plans so our nation will not be broken.  Continue reading

Families – A Key Foundation Of Our Community

Over the next few days and weeks I will be discussing Isaiah 58: 6-12, not necessarily verse by verse but as a whole; focusing on how it pertains to this community and in particular the platform I am focusing on for this Mayor’s race.

“Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen … and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” Is 58: 7

I have been so blessed with a heritage of a healthy foundation of family and faith with grandparents, uncles, aunts and parents living this out through the example of sacrifice, fulfillment and dedication.

This week I am having the bittersweet opportunity to fellowship with one of my dearest aunts – my precious mother’s sister who is 5 years her elder.  She has now been diagnosed with a similar cancer as my mother, which overtook my mother in less than 3 months – 4 years ago June.

When I have asked the question why this happens to good people – I have received a haunting answer – the people of this world do not value the life they have been given. Continue reading

Our Campaign’s Scriptural Platform

I have chosen a book from the Old Testament – Isaiah – as our scriptural focus during this campaign for Tulsa’s mayoral seat. We intend to use these scriptures as our platform base as we work to Transform Tulsa Together.

Specifically, we are focusing on the 58th chapter, verses 6-12:

Isaiah 58:6-12 (New International Version)

6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?

7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness [a] will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,

10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.

11 The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.

12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
