Drama for victims of Foreclosure Scams

Posted by houseofgodspower on April 10, 2012 at 3:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Drama's for many, can capture the mind in taking control of a situation.  For some fighting back is the best hope to save a property from foreclosure.  Problematic foreclosures have the best chance of a meaningful loan modification with a principal balance reduction.  For others hoping to get out from under an underwater property, fighting back is the best protection against being forced to pay the unpaid principal balanceeven after a shortsale or walking away.

We at L.B.E. constantly welcome organizations and legal experts to join us in endorsing legal strategies through the Dramas in order, to provide insight and information for the community to make the best strategic decisions to deal with distressed properties.


         In our Drama “Negotiate from Strength”

Known as a well-defended foreclosure Drama which has many benefits:


                     After watching the Drama:


   Home Owners can continue to live in their home during the fight

   Home Owners can continue to collect rent from investment properties

   Home Owners may get a meaningful loan modification offer that brings theprincipal balance on their loan down to the market value of your home

   Home Owners may avoid a deficiency judgment on an underwater property

   Home Owners could develop facts that will force the bank to settle on better terms

Suicide Prevention

Is suicide common among children and young people?


In 2007, suicide was the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24.1 Of every 100,000 young people in each age group,the following number died by suicide:1


    *Children ages 10 to 14 — 0.9 per 100,000

    *Adolescents ages 15 to 19 — 6.9 per 100,000

    *Young adults ages 20 to 24 — 12.7 per 100,000


As in the general population, young people were much morelikely to use firearms, suffocation, and poisoning than other methods ofsuicide, overall. However, while adolescents and young adults were more likelyto use firearms than suffocation, children were dramatically more likely to use suffocation.


There were also gender differences in suicide among young people, as follows:


    *Nearly five times as many males as females ages 15 to 19 died by suicide.1

·      Just under six times as many males as females ages 20 to 24 died by suicide


What are the risk factors for suicide?


Research shows that risk factors for suicide include:


    *depression and other mental disorders, or a substance-abuse disorder (often incombination with other mental disorders). More than 90 percent of people who die by suicide have these risk factors.2

    *prior suicide attempt

    *family history of mental disorder or substance abuse

    *family history of suicide

    *family violence, including physical or sexual abuse

    *firearms in the home,3 the method used in more than half of suicides


    *exposure to the suicidal behavior of others, such as family members, peers, or media figures.2


However, suicide and suicidal behavior are not normal responses to stress; many people have these risk factors, but are not suicidal. Research also shows that the risk for suicide is associated with changes inbrain chemicals called neurotransmitters, including serotonin. Decreased levels of serotonin have been found in people with depression, impulsive disorders,and a history of suicide attempts, and in the brains of suicide victims.

This second annual event lengthens a series of planned events aimed towards educating and empowering our youth to recognize and effectively confront circumstances which lead to violence. This development activity is designed to redirect youth through positive engagement.



We seek to support and guide our youth in developing their skills, talents and abilities through the creative arts. This event supports the various initiatives to choose peace and stop violence.   Youth will leave the event with a wealth of information which will enhance their knowledge, expose their talents and provide them with a greater understanding of positive self-expression.


We would like to request your support in making this event successful by extending an invitation to your youth groups to participate at our event. In addition, we seek community entities to provide tax deductible donations. All sponsors/supporters will be acknowledged in our event advertisements.
