Donna Fountain, 38, was killed on Christmas day by a hit-and-run driver and family is now mourning their loss. Fountain’s list of dreams that she was carrying in her pocket though, make it that much more real that she deserved a much longer life.
Scribbled down on a lined sheet of paper, Ms Fountain underscored ‘My Dreams’ and had composed a list of five things she hoped to accomplish in the long life she envisioned ahead.
’Work on my dream job’, reads the top line, followed by ‘Buy a house by 45′, ‘Start housing for gay and lesbian teens’, ‘Marry the woman of my dreams’, and lastly, ‘Make sure Elijah graduates from college!
The healthcare aid worker was on her way to work when she was struck by the vehicle that took her life. Friends say she always had this list of dreams folded in her pocket and made sure to keep it with her .
The grey vehicle that struck Fountain just took blocks from her and her son’s home left her there to die. Her plans to pick up her son after school and open Christmas gifts was never able to happen. The single mother was killed around 7:30am on Christmas morning, without completing her list of dreams.

When I first saw this I was a little bothered. Although I do dislike Michele Bachmann, it seems as though this little boy was told to say this to the ignorant, judgmental bitch. But then again, I started to think about it more, and whether he was told to say this or not, her reaction is pure gold. She looks dumbfounded and shocked as she tells the boy “bye-bye” after not being able to come up with anything in response to his statement. She just wanted to be done with that and move on to the next person, hopefully someone who agrees with her homophobic stance.
Another thing I appreciated? Mrs. Bachmann is so nice to the woman and her son, but once the boy tells her his mom is gay, she immediately glances a shocked look right at the mother and avoids any further contact. So nothing this gay mother DID changed Bachmann’s opinion, it was simply being told that she was a lesbian. I would never want to see someone with those childish judgments in a position of authority, especially running our country.
And lastly, I completely agree with what was being said and feel it was nice coming from an 8-year-old because he obviously does love his mother regardless of her sexual orientation. Whether he was coached or not should be irrelevant and me thinking it matters was wrong. Yes, he should be able to speak for himself, but he’s much too young to understand that this woman doesn’t like his mom because of who she loves. And on top of all of this, it could very well be what he thought. His mother could have explained that this woman thought she needed to be fixed because she was gay and he wanted to share his feelings.
Either way, this is a great video and shows the true nature of who Michele Bachmann is and how ignorant, unprepared, and badly composed she truly is.
Video of Michele Bachmann trying to get her photo op in with my 8 year old son. It’s hard to hear but he leans in and tells her that his mom is gay and she doesn’t need fixing. GO ELIJAH! Love that look of shock she gets.
We were there for an Occupy Myrtle Beach event to mic check Michele Bachmann on another issue. The lgbt issue came up separately. #Occupymb
Naim Rasool Mohammed, 32, drowned his two young sons after taking them and their mother, 22, on the way to school. The mother of the boys, unnamed, was threatened with a brick by Mohammed to get into his vehicle with the children. Before going too far, she managed to escape the vehicle and catch the eye of a Dallas County constable who called for help over his radio, but did not pursue the suspect in a chase.
According to authorities, he had also attempted to take his youngest child, one-year-old, from a different location, but was unsuccessful. The frantic mother explained that Naim Rasool had threatened to kill the children as well as herself many times before and she was scared for their safety.
While police were out trying to find the suspect, they received a call they didn’t expect.
Hours after the boys were taken, authorities received a call from a woman who said her son had drowned her grandchildren and that she had the children, who were unresponsive, in her car awaiting paramedics, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said in a statement, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Sadly, they do not know where the boys were drowned or what his motivation was to do such a horrific thing to his own flesh and blood. Although, he does have quite a history of abusing those close to him:
In September 2009, Mohammed pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony, and received five years’ probation.
According to court records, which also spell his last name Muhammad, the charge stemmed from a complaint from his sister that he had struck her in the head with a hammer.
Mohammed also has convictions for burglary of a vehicle, theft by check and marijuana possession, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety’s online data base.
This piece of crap should have been locked up multiple times before and not been allowed to be in this position where he could harm his children. Who gets five years probation for hitting their sister in the head with a hammer?! That, in my opinion, looks a lot like attempted murder. Especially when a man has such a violent past with a numerous amount of criminal convictions. And now, because he wasn’t punished severely enough for his previous crimes, two innocent and beautiful children are dead, much too soon. I hope to God he gets his face dunked into a disgusting prison toilet while being ass-raped and then, maybe then, he will be able to empathize with how his children must have felt. He is a worthless human being and it’s sad that we pay our taxes, which allow him to live, but I’d much rather him suffer and have to think about it on the daily, than be put out of his misery.
The least I can say is that this one-year-old baby will never have to fear his father like his two older brothers did.
