Sigh. Where do I start? These last three days have felt like I’ve lost a family member. The pain of watching a son or child cry for his father, the sight of watching a man take his last breath for the world to see, witnessing news stations report so many things it’s hard to discern what’s real and what’s memorex.
Truth is, it’s hard to know exact truths because we live in a society that religiously plays on the emotions of people for commerce and oppression. At the end of the day, I know for a FACT three men (Antwun Shumpert, Alton Sterling, and Philando Castile) no longer have life in their bodies. They no longer have a chance to live a life of purpose or benefit or add to a society. This I do KNOW.
I watched the videos. I’ve seen the posts. Tears ran down my cheeks as I immediately thought about my brother and father. My peace still disturbed, but not all the way eliminated as I seen my father’s car roll into the driveway. ALIVE.
So, what do I do? What do you do? In a world that’s too satanic to even try to go into detail. To the food, the water, the systems, the politics.. You get the point.
I’ll tell you…You will get up everyday with the WILL to FIGHT. You will not WALK in FEAR. You will not let your EMOTIONS lead your ACTIONS. You will FIND Knowledge of SELF. You will SHOW Love and Compassion, not just in times of tragedy. You will BUILD and MENTOR those coming after you. You will learn MONEY and INVEST wisely. You will THINK for yourself and MAKE good CHOICES.
What you WILL NOT do is QUIT!!!!!!!!!
