It starts with one person…

Barbara Rhyne tucker was to be without heat, without the basic human essentials in KC, MO. How can this be you ask? Well, even now we still have ‘slum’ lords in our Country that make money off of those less fortunate. Yes, here in the United States of America!

Laurie Zieber took action and sent a call to help out to all her Internet family. For Story, Click here.

This morning, I stood up with Laurie and sent emails to various news stations:

Does Ebenezer Scrooge really exist? He does for the tenants living in the apartment complex with Barbara Rhyne Tucker.
How can this be happening in our World today? How can we allow ‘slum’ lords to deny basic human rights for their tenants?
This man denied a heater to her because she took a stand against his tyranny and called the city on him. Someone needs to stand up and get her story told.
There are elderly in this building as well. In blizzard conditions and without heat, this could be devastating.
So, before you head off to your warm and cozy homes, Speak up and take a stand.
Let’s show the World that Christmas miracles really do happen!

Tracy Radford

When the world says, “Give up,”… Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

Steve Kaut from KSHB-TV responded:

We interviewed your friend and the story will run tonight.
Thank you for the heads up.

As you see, it does start with one person, one person who truly cares. Laurie Zieber was that person. Thanks to her and the many people that joined her, Barbara and the tenants at her building will be heard. Stand up against tyranny, stand up against wrong, be the voice, and miracles WILL happen!

Blessings and hope…

  1. What an incredible story! Thanks for sharing Tracy. You’re right, it only takes one voice to put a call out, once people see that one person is willing to raise their voice, others join in and create a chorus.

    People do still care about one another, regardless of what it might seem like from time to time.

    Much Love oxox


  2. Hey sweetness, sorry I haven’t been here – caught a touch of the flu and haven’t been feeling too hot.

    I just wanted to come by and wish you and yours a very Happy Yule, and to let you know I’m thinking of you… (((HUGS)))


  3. What a great Story Tracy and how wonderful that you stood up and used your voice as well! Hopefully this attention will help these elderly people! You rock! I will have to go read the story now!


  4. Your so right – I sent an email hoping desperately that if they saw one from England they might respond – I was watching it all via Facebook as I was working at a shelter over Christmas – shampooing hair (another secret ambition filled being a hairdresser don’t think using a buzz shaver counts !)
    We all need to stand up and shout because one voice makes many and someone is helped ..
    Good bless you Laurie xx
