Al Sharpton, Wife Announce Separation

The Rev. Al Sharpton (news - web sites) and his wife, Kathy Jordan Sharpton, have announced their separation after 23 years of marriage.

The Sharptons said in a statement Friday that they "will remain on the best of terms."

The pair "have extremely active careers and their separation allows them to continue pursuing their work interests," the statement said. "They will continue to work together in their civil rights work and in their other business ventures, including those in the entertainment industry."

"Together they have successfully raised two daughters, one of whom started college this year, and the other of whom will be graduating high school in June," the statement said.

1. how sad - after the marriage being "blessed" by Moon!
I just can't imagine it! /sarcasm

Then a video was shown about the Blessing of Rev. Al Sharpton and his wife. Rev. Sharpton is a candidate for the office of New York mayor.

After the video was shown, Rev. Sharpton and his wife Kathy came to the stage and congratulated the audience on the True Day of All Things and expressed their hopes for a successful Blessing in November. Al Sharpton said he was so high from the Blessing, he didn't know how he would get to Nov. 29 Blessing; by plane or train or car, but he felt he was so high as if he had wings and could fly there himself.

Rev. Sharpton gave testimony to True Parents and to the Blessing. He said that the Blessing started many years ago under difficult times and hasn't been well received until now, but the signs of the times show clearly that Rev. Moon was right all along. He offered his thanks to True Parents for sticking to the task God asked them to do, and looked forward to working with the Blessing and to being at RFK Stadium on Nov. 29.

True Parents were very happy. At the end everybody sang "Amazing Grace" together.
