Under His Watch by DeQuina Moore
"UNDER HIS WATCH: Over 100 Reasons to Re-elect & Remember President Barack Obama," is a tribute to the 44th president by author DeQuina Moore. This accomplished professional actress, singer, dancer, and now author, DeQuina Moore, has penned a fun and easy read (the perfect coffee-table book), listing over 100 reasons why Americans should re-elect President Barack Obama for a second term. TIRED of the misleading, negative right-wing propaganda and (what she calls) a misbehaving Congress, Moore's primary purpose of the book is to provide potential voters with pertinent info about the Obama administration. She hopes to expose readers to JUST THE FACTS about President Obama, minus the negative spins and inflammatory commentaries. It's Moore's desire that after reading "UNDER HIS WATCH…," readers would come to know EVERYTHING that President Obama has accomplished on behalf of ALL people, not just a chosen few.
Additionally, even post-election, "UNDER HIS WATCH" is a BEAUTIFUL KEEPSAKE which captures the many moments of truth and power concerning President Obama's first term! Moore elaborates on it all in a unique manner utilizing outstanding artwork and photography to help illustrate her views.
"UNDER HIS WATCH" will be available for purchase at all major online retailers, and in book stores beginning October 15th, just in time for the 2012 Presidential Election. A vocalist in her own right, DeQuina Moore has also recorded the song "Thank You" to accompany the book. The song is available for download on her website (www.DequinaMoore.com), and the music video is viewable there as well! "'Thank You' is an ode to the President, a perfect complement to the book," Moore explains. The beautiful melodic original piece was written, arranged, and performed by Moore.
The United States and so many countries have already strongly benefited from President Obama's governing and the justification is well documented in "UNDER HIS WATCH". Also, Moore's bloggish-style responses to the facts she offers are hilariously written, filled with a mighty wit, and a prideful punch. Once you read this book and see the brilliant artwork/photos, you will easily understand why this awesome man was elected to the presidency in the first place! You will likewise see that his visions and desires for the United States are parallel to most Americans, and are the most selfless, non-arrogant and truly necessary approaches any president could ever take. Additionally, you will observe that he has already, in less than four years, made more strides in a similar period than any other president we have ever had, and there would have been even more positive "change" if it were not for all the unwarranted, unpopular, congressional filibustering he's had to endure.
"UNDER HIS WATCH" was written for the many working people who do not have time to come home and watch non-partisan news or turn on a computer to learn what President Obama has contributed toward their futures. It was not DeQuina Moore's desire for fellow working citizens to continue walking around supporting or rejecting President Obama while not really knowing what he stands for, and what specific "change" his fighting represents.
Thus, all "UNDER HIS WATCH" readers will be armed and ready for battle at the voting booth, AND will own a wonderful piece of historical literature-a thrilling, easy-going, educational KEEPSAKE they can hold very dear to their hearts!
Robbie Tolan was an aspiring baseball player and son of a 15-yr Major league star (Bobby Tolan). One late night he was followed home by a police officer that, unknowingly to Robbie, suspected him of being in a stolen car. While Robbie was in his own driveway he was approached by what, initially to Robbie, seemed to be an average citizen with a flashlight and gun drawn. What turned out to be a police officer, directed him to “get on the ground.” Robbie, caught off guard by the whole ordeal took a minute to realize it was in fact a police officer, therefore, naturally hesitated. The officer repeats to Robbie, “get on the ground.” When Robbie’s mom came out to see what was happening she directed him to do as the officer said, and he did, but once she realized this officer was accusing him of being in a stolen car she knew she could prove his innocence with the papers in the car. When she went for the proof the officer pushes her against the garage, and Robbie (Who is still on the ground) lifts up to say don’t push his mom, he was shot at three times lodging a bullet into his liver, that remains there till this day. They tried to perform surgery to remove the bullet, breaking three ribs to do so, but it was so oddly positioned behind vital organs that it was left in place. As if this story requires any other additions, he has been forced to turn away from his baseball dream as a result of this bullet, literally adding insult to injury. The setting for this incident occurred in Bellaire, Texas in front of Robbie’s house in front of his Mom.
Tribute to Trayvon Martin:
I remember getting a cold chill over me when I received the phone call about Robbie being shot. I remember the range of emotions I felt from anger, confusion, to empty, and scared. I tried to make sense of the facts, but nothing that occurred that night added up to me. At the end of the day it was a senseless act that could have been avoided if cooler heads would have prevailed. All of these emotions were rehashed within me during my first introduction to the Trayvon Martin case. It was to the point where it became hard for me to watch the news, because nothing being said could explain why this 17 year old unarmed kid had to die that day. When I learned that the shooter was released from custody without any charges despite officers having a body, video tapes admitting the shooter's pursuit of the victim, and no communications given to the parents for three days I was reminded of the significant impact and pain that is caused by the issues of injustice and police brutality. Although the assailant is finally in custody, the pain from his actions that day will be everlasting. My heart and prayers go out to the Martin family, the supporters, and the leaders leading the fight on his behalf. I am proud of each one of you, and the fight has just begun. Continue to fight for Trayvon because the minute this case is no longer highlighted the case can be dismissed as if no wrong was done in this case, despite all evidence saying otherwise. Robbie's case was recently dropped, DESPITE ALL THE EVIDENCE.
