Just lost my dad… He was a good man… But he also had troubles…. he drank… he wounded us… he even abused us… but along time ago, when God first saved me… he taught me that the first lesson in life is to love your enemies and pray for them to despitefully use you…. that in doing so you are setting yourself free. I was only 17, but I knew God said I had to forgive, so I did. Let them go. God is Judge. He sees all, He forgives all…. RIP Jack Winston Lund. ????????????AdvertisementAdvertisement

Terry Crews Revealed That a Hollywood Exec “Groped” Him in front of Rebecca
The Harvey Weinstein case is getting uglier by the day, and the list of people coming forward has only increased. Angelina Jolie said in an e-mail, “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.” The current situation in Hollywood has turned sour. And now, in reference to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the NFL star stepped forward about a similar situation he once experienced.
Terry and Rebecca Crews were at an event when the actor said he was “groped” by a Hollywood exec. “Jumping back I said, ‘What are you doing?!’” explained Crews. His wife even witnessed the whole thing go down, and they looked at him like he was crazy. According to Crews, the unnamed individual “just grinned like a jerk.”
Though he confronted the person and wanted to “kick his ass,” the actor feared the aftermath of what his actions might cause, and decided against it. “’240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho’ would be the headline the next day. Only I probably wouldn’t have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. So we left,” explained Crews.
Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless. (16/end)
