Once Again We Mourn

Too many times we have mourned the senseless killing of people for nothing more than racial intolerance.

There are those who will tell you racism is dead. There are those who will denounce you if you point out racism in this country. But today we mourn the loss of nine innocent souls taken from us far too early simply because of the color of their skin.

There are those who profit from promoting the dialogue of division rather than one of unity. One can only wonder what truths their souls will offer them today when they look in the mirror. Because today nine innocent souls were taken from us far too early simply because of the color of their skin.

There is no mistaking the fact that as a country we are in a better place today than were yesterday and we are marching forward toward tomorrow more and more united as a people. Bonded by our humanity, together as one, all races and all colors. As we march forward slowly we are casting aside those who look to divide us but our progress would be for naught if we did not understand that we are still a long way from the promised land, that there is still much work to do. We must remain vigilant, we must not be afraid to speak up in the face of injustice and discrimination. We must continue to call out and point fingers at those who seek to divide humanity. Because as today points out evil still lives among us.

Nine lives taken too soon-my prayers go out to their families and friends.

No Doubt

We have all been there clinging to that last hope, feeling like we are nurturing nothing more than a pipe-dream. Doubt surrounding us and we naturally begin to wonder if we ever will accomplish what we set out to do, if we will ever find the happiness we so desperately want.

But doubt is only a state of mind, nothing more than a defensive mechanism designed to soften the blow if we fail to achieve our goals. Doubt gives us the fall back option of stating – No big deal after  all I never really believed it would happen anyway

But the truth is in order to manifest our happiness, to take hold of our future, we must find it within ourselves to cast away all doubt. To step to the precipice of our hopes and dreams and bodily reach out and grab them. To move forward with no doubt and the belief that our dreams are indeed ours for the taking.
