Fight for your country, get the home of your dreams, near death’s door and what does government say?

Johnnie StevensJohnnie Stevens is an 85 year old WWII veteran. His doctor has told him he has lung cancer and about 2 years left to live. Now officials in New Jersey want to take his home away.

This man fought in a war where Black men like him were sent to separate facilities for most everything. He fought in the war where groups like The Tuskegee Airmen had to be created, just so Black men could actually see flight time in combat! But amidst all this he fought for his country and proudly wears military garb. Because despite all adversity he believed in America. He believed in the dream. We have seen those old days of segregation pass and the opportunities he believed would come have now been realized. What a testament to the greatness of a nation, that so much could change in one man’s lifetime! With little life left, he was planning to live his last days in his home and tend to his garden. This dying veteran’s final dream is being taking away from him, by the power that is found in the abuse of eminent domain!

Check out the video courtesy of The Political Teen. He also mentions that losing Republican Gubernatorial candidate Doug Forrester raised this issue during his campaign!

Bloggers like John Lott are also covering this issue.

This matter is simply one sad piece of insanity. One man’s fight and belief in the land of the free is being turned into a nightmare!
