I wish to start a foundation for the families of incarcerated individuals. Yes, when the criminal parent goes to jail, somehow, funds should be made available so the rest of the family can survive. All too often the wives and children are left penniless when the husband goes to jail. No one cares about those innocent victims that did not perform any crime. Are they guilty by association?
Lolo was favored to go home with a gold medal four years ago at the 2008 Beijing Olympics but a miss step clipping over the 9th hurdle caused her instead of finishing first with her medal but finishing 7th in the 100 meter race. That miss step crushed her Olympic dreams. Now she tries to redeem herself and win that medal again this summer at the 2012 Olympics to be aired August 6th and 7th . It would be a nice Birthday present since it is on the 5th of August.
Her father was in and out of prison often for things like armed robbery. Her mom did her best to keep the family afloat by moving her kids from one Iowa town to another to find work. At times she was a hotel maid or a cashier, anything to pay the bills and there never was enough money. They moved a lot, finally being desperate and homeless living in a locker room in a Salvation Army. Throughout her childhood Jones attended 8 schools in 8 years. Finally, she was able to stay in high school for 4 years in a a row.
She may not have left Beijing with a gold medal but she left a lot wealthier. She wants to validate her endorsements with a gold medal not just on her beauty and past accomplishments. She feels that there is nothing she can do about the way she looks besides age but also wants to find a husband in her life and has tried all dating sites. She admitted remaining a virgin has been the most difficult thing she has ever done in her life.
