There is nothing more ugly than division and hate for each other with the exception of those who promote it for personal gain. One day they will have to stand before the creator and justify the unjustifiable.
There is nothing more beautiful than unity and compassion for each other. Blessings shall be showered unto those of us who who practice it. For we all God’s children regardless of what we may look like.
There is a reason they disparage those who educate our youth, mock those who embrace intelligence and make higher education unaffordable to the masses. It is to ensure we remain easily mislead. It is to ensure that misinformation remains a way of life because
Misinformation leads to ignorance
Ignorance leads to fear
Fear leads to isolation
Isolation leads to mistrust
Mistrust leads to intolerance
Intolerance leads to hate
Hate leads to division
And division ensures we that we never band together as one but continue to fight each other over the crumbs they toss us. It is to ensure we remain victims. It is to ensure their way of life.
– Matthew 12:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. –
More senseless deaths; more families left to mourn the loss of loved ones; more cries from churches, synagogues and other places of worship of why; more pulling apart than coming together as politicians, advocates and ordinary people look to find someone or some group to blame. This is what we wake to this morning on a day that is becoming all too commonplace in America because hate has reared its ugly head yet again. Now after identifying the cowards who once again destroyed the lives of countless families with just the pull of a trigger the networks ask – will the FBI now call this terrorism? And my question is does it really matter?
To be clear terrorism in general is any act designed to cause terror. It is not something that is new to America it has been around for over a century. The KKK for example is a terrorist organization. Now there are different reasons that individuals or groups carry out terrorist attacks but at the end of the day every single one of these so called “mass shootings” have been acts of terrorism. The press or the government waiting to determine the race, religion, or political affiliation of individuals who carry out these heinous acts before they decide what to label it is nothing more than politics at its worst.
But again I ask what does it really matter? Because no matter what we call it, today we will still mourn for those innocent souls lost yesterday. We still look on with grief at the pain their families must endure. Because no matter how we label it, hate continues to chip away at our collective morality as a species. Hate, unless we find a way to defeat it will undoubtedly be the downfall of us as a people and when we’re gone it won’t matter how we labeled it.
