I thought about this long and hard. I wonder what type of country we are now. Is this what defines us as country. Hatred, racism, intolerance. It saddens me when the death of seven year old Jazmine Barnes in what appears to be a racially motivated drive by is overshadowed by a government shutdown that at its core is really about appeasing the fears of those who would remain divided in hate rather than united in love. Our supposed leader constantly stirring those fears with divisive, hate filled speech. It is time we stop pretending, stop trying not to offend, stop looking to be politically correct. It is time we stand up, time we speak up, time we make over voices cry out with a roar. ENOUGH. We will not let hatred rule us and we will not allow those who preach the freedom to believe they can do so.
Do not let this moment pass without showing who we can become not who we seemingly are. Let us show the proper respect for a young life sadly taken from us to soon.
Post the name and picture of Jazmine Barnes on your Facebook timeline, your twitter account, your instagram page, whatever social media you are on. Offer your prayers and condolences to her grieving family, let them know we are with them and let us pray to the Lord to give us the strength as human beings to begin to move away from these type of tragedies.
