Kindred souls,

We have received news recently that 79 year old author Piri Thomas suffered a stroke this past Tuesday in California. Via one of our supporters, we have made contact with Suzie, Piri's wife and she confirmed the news and said that he will be moved to a
rehabilitation center in the coming days.

We ask that you all keep Piri in your prayers that he make a complete and speedy recovery. We will update you as more information becomes available.

In February 2008, Piri came down to our showcase in Brooklyn NYC as the featured artist of our Love Our Culture event. We are honored to have hosted him and his wife, and now reach out to our Tri-State family for a show of support.

If you want to send Piri Thomas a get well message please email us at or call our community hotline (208) 723-5966 and we will compile these in a transcript and audio CD that will go directly to Piri, so that collectively we can raise his spirits and lend him our strength to survive this ordeal.

The Capicu family would like to thank you in advance for prayers.

Siempre Palante,
