I was wondering if the Family would be intrested in sharing this story on my TV Show I would be intrested in having Annette Keys share this story. My TV Shows deals with State Mental Hospitals and families and friends mentally ill. I sent a message to the editor to ask to foward my message to Herczog family. My site is waynemorinjr.com
This is a great and entertaining read. We only sell traditional, imported yerba mate at http://www.buenaondafoods.com
What a shock to read about Mark's murder. He was a really fine person: intelligent, kind, thoughtful. My heart goes out to the family; they are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the justice system will listen to their plea for compassion and mercy for the mentally ill son.
THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING !
I created an online petition about this. I realized a sit in protest could get out of hand and cause damage, something I would never want to happen. Here's the link to it: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/brin…
My hopes and prayers surround this entire family and all who are seeking the truth and its relevance to Houston and his care beyond this sad moment. I, too, wake up everyday to a tragic nightmare that began over 7 years ago with psychosis and the killing of 2 of our 5 children by their medication induced psychotic father and my husband, David Crespi. I believe that we all need to seek the full truth and surround the details with diligent attention for understanding to facilitate meaningful action and healing beyond the horror. See CrespiFamilyHope for details and possible understanding. I completely support understanding and mercy for Houston.
If there were a negative star rating, this "performance" merits it. It is a ridiculous ensemble of (mostly) untalented singers and...we'll call them dancers. I think my 8-year-old and slumber party friends would have come up with better dialogue and dance moves. At one point I thought I was watching an aerobics class. They looked to each other for cues, were constantly out of synch and not centered on the stage, and one guy was even chewing gum as he danced! Come on now...these are the basics, no need to go to Juilliard to know this. The lyrics were banal and a constant overkill of the introductory message relayed to the audience on an old-fashioned film screen in the far background. Perhaps the props and stage were going for the minimalist look, but it felt more like we were at the first day of rehearsal than opening night. From the lack or originality in the costumes and set design (there was none), to the disconnected music which sounded like nothing you'd associate with Cuba, and all of the non-latino people declaring proudly that "they are the spirit of the cuban people," it was the most surprising theatrical disappointment I've ever had, even for what one is expecting in community theatre. Another poignant example of the pain: At one point there was a song addressing the shift from capitalism to communism and the analogy was conveyed Sesame Street-style by replacing the M in Me with a W for We...and the melody to match. Wow, really? Two of the main vocalists had pleasant, very powerful and melodic voices with much potential, but require voice training to completely master their god-given talent. At least there was that. The musical would have been much better if they got rid of the singing and dancing and just stuck to the documentary on the screen with the narrator. There were issues there, too, but I'll stop here.
Hail the call of the 60s, I think it's time for a sit in protest!
Did the "Montgomery Village Covered Wagon," become a distraction for traffic lights or create accidents?....This is more gentrification by outsiders to Sonoma County...Fire the "City employees of The Design Review Board!" ...Return the Montgomery Village Covered Wagon.....And this "Historical property," should be protected and designated immediately...The "City Of S.R. Design Review Board," take down the Peanuts character's while your at destruction of many of our roots and heritage....Add another one-third mile runway extension to the Sonoma County Airport...Oh, it's also time for you to return to Carmel, Ca...Sure...Not.
What a sad story. My sympathy to the family. I remember Mark, Annette, and Marilyn from the mid-1980s in San Francisco. May God have mercy.
Probably the highest quality martial arts training facility in all of northern California. You would never think it was so huge from the outside windows, but I was blown away when I say the second classroom and full gym. Also the instructors from each program are really nice, inviting, and flexible.
Absolutely agrees with the thrust of this article.After knowing known Mark personally, and having a nephew who suffers from this disease, I believe that a delicate balance between mercy, wisdom and keen judgement desperately needs to be exercised. Mark was a deeply caring individual, and probably would be the first to testify on Houston's behalf.
For those complaining about the article writer: What do you expect? Remember who wrote it, and then remember Mark for who he was. Mark Herczog was one of the few who were inspiration to me when we met early in 1992. He was a role model who I aspired to be like one day. He encouraged me in so many ways, to pray, to be persistent and to talk when I needed to. I loved that man and was always grateful when he walked into a room. Save me a seat, Mark! Until we meet again...
I'm rather disappointed by the way this article was presented. For the sake of this poor family, there was absolutely no need to be so graphic. You caused the family more pain (as I see from their post) and you've also contributed further to terrible stigmas and discrimination against mentally ill. That's exactly why the family couldn't get the help they needed- fear of the police hurting their son because it's obvious there's discrimination and lack of awareness regarding mentally ill people. The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill states that 1 in 4 people suffer from some sort of mentally illness during their lives. Statistical research also shows that only 4 percent of violent crimes are committed by people with mental illness - most of the time they hurt themselves instead and are vulnerable to being abused while in hospitals or during incarceration. Sadly, there are cases where some didn't get the help they needed and tragedy against others struck. It's clear you were trying to point out the issue about the fear of the police, which is very important, but please be mindful not to contribute to the problem by presenting such an unbalanced picture and focusing on violence. The entire community of people living with mental illness are afraid of the police, mental health system, justice system, and media because in today's political state it's feels like a witch hunt against them. What can we do to join together as a community to provide compassionate help for those who need it, prevent tragedies against themselves or potentially others, and change some of the areas of social bias and discrimination so people seek treatment and have a chance to live in harmony with others? All kinds of people hurt other people, and drugs and alcohol use are the highest link to violent crime. If our country just took a more proactive stance on treatment for drugs/alcohol and mental health, we would have a much happier society in general.
Striking the windshield with your head does not cause schizophrenia...The head usually acquires frontal lobe injuries with impact. Affecting the executive order..Not cognitive (memory) Rear of skull left and right sides, but executive order creating recognition of police, right from wrong, authority, nobodies vs. great people...All of it is the same with executive order frontal lobe head injuries...Just people not junkies and pastors or police and fireman just people....This may have happened to him...The long hair has me thinking another game of poison taking, M.D.M.A (molly) .....I'm sorry....And psychosis from "molly."
From NAMI's website:
In 1992, NAMI and Public Citizen’s Health Research Group released a report, entitled Criminalizing the Seriously Mentally Ill: The Abuse of Jails as Mental Hospitals, which revealed alarmingly high numbers of people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other severe mental illnesses incarcerated in jails across the country. A report issued by the United States Department of Justice in 1999 revealed that 16 percent of all inmates in state and federal jails and prisons have schizophrenia, manic depressive illness (bipolar disorder), major depression, or another severe mental illness. In the years following these reports, the situation has not improved. This means that on any given day, there are roughly 283,000 persons with severe mental illnesses incarcerated in federal and state jails and prisons. In contrast, there are approximately 70,000 persons with severe mental illnesses in public psychiatric hospitals, and 30 percent of them are forensic patients. NAMI’s position is for treatment, not punishment.
My thoughts and prayers are with all affected by this tragedy, including Mark, his family, friends, acquaintances and our whole community.
Radio will be here forever, and it should have local stations. One should be able to choose what to listen to and what stations to support. Now that we have satallite radio, and cable, we need local stations more than ever..
