Cowardice in the cradle of Liberty (Liberty Counsel) 

Yesterday, in a voice vote, Massachusetts legislators decided against calling for the release of Justina Pelletier to her family – and voted down a call for accountability of the DCF’s misguided actions and mismanagement of state resources.   Because of the voice vote, there is no record of how any individual legislator voted, but Democrats outnumber Republicans in the Massachusetts lower chamber by a margin of 4-1. 


This is CYA, no leadership, all cowards and unaccountable….we shall see.  We do not forget!

Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz, whose agency oversees the DCF, has called for the release of Justina in a letter… “Justina Pelletier should return to her home state of Connecticut to receive the services and support she needs close to her friends, family, school and community. We strongly believe that this outcome is in Justina’s best interest, and have laid the groundwork to make it happen.” Polanowicz said he is putting together a reunification plan, but ultimately the decision now lies with the courts. “DCF does not have the authority to determine when and if custody should be returned to Justina’s parents” because of a Judge’s ruling “that it is in the best interest of Justina to remain in DCF custody for now.” 


An Emergency exists to get Justina home.  Will Massachusetts court accommodate and release #JustinaPelletier, a victim of child abuse by the state of Massachusetts, Department of Children and Families and Harvard’s Boston Children’s Hospital?  Can a Judge #FreeJustinaNow that there is a reunification plan? Or will this process of reunification and the court cost tax payers and Justina another 14 months?


Remember there was no medical child abuse (Boston Children’s Hospital LIED)  and no reason for the State of Massachusetts to be Justina’s legal guardian.  Furthermore, the state of Massachusetts is now under suspicion for  child abuse?  How much longer should we watch Massachusetts abuse Justina and other children?  Finally, How do we get justice from a corrupt state such as Massachusetts?  How do we prevent this from ever happening again?

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
