Listen To It America – Look At It America

“I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe, please, please.”
“Don’t kill me.”
“Mama, Mama… I’m through!”
George Floyd’s words before his life was taken from him by an officer casually kneeling on his neck.
Listen America as he begs for his life as the officer casually kneeled on his neck.
Listen America as he cries out for his Mama as the officer casually kneeled on his neck.
Look America at his last minutes as the officer casually kneeled on his neck.
Look America at the callous attitude, as the officer casually knelled on his neck.
Take note America of the silence emanating from the White House about the officer casually kneeling on his neck.
America, you hear it, you see it, yet some of you don’t possess the compassion to care about it.
Where is your soul?
Did you even have a soul?
America, your fear, hatred, and disregard for our lives are well documented, and we are not asking that the hate that lives in the hearts of some of you magically disappear. But make no mistake, America, the time is coming, and you will:
Respect us.
Treat us as equals.
Stop killing us.
Be held accountable for your actions.
Because America we are not going anywhere. This is OUR country, just as much as you imagine it to belong to you alone.
“I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe, pleased, please.”
“Don’t kill me.”
“Mama, Mama… I’m through!”
Listen to it, America.
Look at it, America.

Fear Not Those Who Steal From The Lord

On this Pentecost Sunday let us remember that Derek Chauvin stole from George Floyd, who called out he can’t breath as he lay dying othe street, what was not his to take, the breath of God. As it is written in Job 33:4:

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

As a people we must demand that Derek Chauvin meets his earthly justice. But as a people we must not fear him or his kind for their everlasting justice awaits them. As it is written in Matthew 10:28:

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
