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.
I say the future is ours…
…if you can count!
Now, look what we have
here before us.
We’ve got the Muslims…
…sitting next to
We’ve got the Christians …
…right by the Atheists
The Whites up against the Blacks and the heterosexuals back to back with the homosexuals.
Nobody is wasting nobody.
…is a miracle.
is the way things ought to be.
You’re standing right now
with nine delegates from every race, nationality religion and sexual orientation
That’s over 7 and a half billion humans.
Now, put that in perspective and you’ll understand there ain’t but a handful of racist, misogynist, intolerant hate filled humans left in this whole world
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Now here’s the sum total.
Unity and tolerance could run this world.
We could make it a paradise. Because we got the Earth
Can you dig it?
The problem in the past
has been those committed to hate and division turning us against one another.
We have been unable
to see the truth,
because we’ve been fighting
for 10 square feet of ground,
our turf, our little piece of turf.
That’s crap, brothers and sisters
The turf is ours by right
because it’s our turn.
All we have to do
is see the good in each other
We slowly root out the hate from each corner of the globe
Secure our territory,
secure our turf
because it’s all our turf and this Earth would be a paradise.
Can you dig it.
An angel walks in a room with a Christian who celebrates Christmas. A Jew who celebrates Hanukkah and a African American who celebrates Kwanza. The angel quickly looks around and says Happy Holidays to everyone. At that moment an individual in the corner sighs loudly. The angel turns to the man and asks is there a problem sir? To which the man responded well since you asked there is. I’m so tired of you liberals and your war on Christmas. What wrong with just saying Merry Christmas like we did in the good old days. The angel looked at the man and laughed and then politely said sir it would seem it is you and not me who is waging war on Christmas. Me? Responded the man shockingly. Yes you said the angel for on the day Jesus was born an angel like myself told all those in the manger I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. He did not identify only a selection of people to wish great joy he wished it to all. We are all God’s children and he wishes that as his children we love each other and respect each other faiths. If you choose to turn a cold shoulder to or belittle those who wish happiness to all then it is you who are soiling the true meaning of Christmas.
November 6, 2018 we must awaken with a single purpose:
To go to the polls and take government back from the charlatans who profess they have been elected to serve the people when the truth is they serve only themselves and the all mighty dollar.
To go to the polls and remove from the halls of government those who use hate and look to divide us so that they may expand their own power and increase their own wealth.
To go to the polls and restore what democracy truly is – The voice of the people.
On November 6, 2018 we must boogie to the new beat that is rising up in this country.
Racism based on the color of one skin fading away.
Discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation vanishing by the day
Disrespect of women no longer accepted as one of society’s dirty little norms
Bullying someone because they don’t fit neatly into a box that society claims is normal waning as we speak
Division being increasingly replaced by unity
Exclusion being increasingly replaced by inclusion
On November 6 we must rise as a people and boogie to the growing beat, that they are so desperate to shut down, and make America truly Great
One of the great aspects of American society is the right to free speech. No matter how hateful and divisive it is. No matter how vile you may take the message to be it is the right of every individual or group to freely voice their opinion.
This weekend exactly one year after Unite the Right, the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, many of the same white-nationalist, paramilitary, and other right-wing groups are planning once again to come together once again — this time, in Washington, D.C.
In many ways it is a good thing that these groups are permitted to use their first amendment right to hold these rallies as it sheds light on the vile, dangerous and disgusting message of division and hate they preach. A spotlight for the rest of America to witness and be repulsed by, hopefully forcing them to admit there is a cancer in America that needs to be removed. Discussions about about race and social inequalities can not be swept under the rug any longer but must be confronted head on if we are ever going to move forward as a nation.
These rallies also shines a light on the sins of those individuals who preach hate. The majority of them who call themselves Christians but deny the undeniable, we are all one created in the image of our Lord.
27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27
They presuppose that they are greater than the Lord they claim to worship. That they have the right to determine which of the Lord’s children are worthy and which are not. A direct rejection of the Lord’s commandment to us. As is written in John 13:34:
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another
The Lord created each of us in His image He loves each of us unconditionally He does not play favorites based on the color of our skin or our religious beliefs.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. – Galatians 3:26-29
Since the beginning it has been the Lord’s desire for us to live together in peace an unity.
1 How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! – Psalms 133:1
And He warned us to avoid those who would speak differently!
17. Now I make one more appeal, my dear brothers and sisters. Watch out for people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching things contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from them. 18. Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people. – Romans 16:17-18
So this weekend let us stand at a distance watch and expose to the world those with malice in their hearts, sinners against the Lord.
Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. – Ephesians 5:11
But as with all things with the Lord reject their beliefs but be prepared to forgive those among them who repent their sins and ask for help in finding their way back onto pthe path of spirituality.
Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. – Galatians 6:1
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.
What does it mean to be American. It means you are part of a diverse community that includes individuals of different races, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, religious beliefs and a host of other differences. That we embrace those differences so together we become greater than the sum of all us. That we educate ourselves on each other’s differences so we may be better understand our fellow Americans. That we rebuke those who believe in dividing us by stoking the prejudices and fears that innately resides in each of us so they can enhance their own power and wealth. That we reject the notion that preaching uniformity will make America great again, as if the continued diversification of this great land made us not great. That we dismiss those who believe we should isolate ourselves from others instead of showing compassion for those who are suffering from other countries. That we do not simply quote the words All Men are Created Equal but that we actively live them. It is in the melding of each one of us into society as a whole and the embrace of that philosophy that makes us American.
When a society willfully lets itself be divided by anyone whose primary agenda is to pit the masses against each other so that they may bolster their own personal wealth and power it can not be surprised to see unrest among the masses. It can not be surprised to see the very foundation on which it was built begin to crumble. It can not be surprised when it begins to fail from within. For the good of society as a whole the masses must put aside their differences and work together to reject what makes them different and embrace how their diversity has made them stronger. They do this only through a willingness to by listen to and learn about each other. It is only then that the masses will be able to stand up to those looking to divide, those who would see society crumble as long they themselves benefit and say no we will not stand idly by and let you destroy us. We are one, bonded by the spirit of humanity.
Alien #1: You are prepared to come before this council today with your recommendation on the humans?
Alien #2: I am.
Alien #1: Then this evaluation hearing shall come to order and you may proceed.
Alien #2: Thank you as you know I have always been a proponent of the humans as a species It is no secret that I have always found they are rather unique. Above all other life on Earth they are special because of their cognitive ability. When I was first tasked with evaluating them it was my hope that when faced with differences they would respond as many of our species have and use this ability to find common ground, to learn from each other and to grow as a species. Unfortunately that is not the case. Rather when faced with the unknown of another group my research has shown they choose, since the beginning of their time, not to use this ability to grow as a species but to make us versus them decisions along lines of race, ethnicity, gender, language group, religion, age, socioeconomic status, and so on. That combined with the human thirst for power and money has led them to turn their back on at best orto attempt to subjugate or even kill the other group at worst. This undoubtedly has stunted their development as a species over time yet they still do not change. Why? Well I have theorized and in my opinion their actions have proven this to be true the human mind despite all of its unique and special characteristics is lazy. When I say lazy what I mean is the human mind prefers to be comfortable. It is more comfortable to accept that which is familiar than that which is different. Even when they come to the realization that their actions are morally wrong and counterproductive to their society as a whole It is more comfortable to ignore this than to confront it. More importantly it appears that it is in their nature to live in the moment at the expense of their species future’s greater good, one can see that in how they treat their own planet. Coupled with their creation of and need for a socioeconomic system in which each group strives to climb over the other. One can only surmise that over the course of their history there has been the loss of great minds that may have developed over time in the groups that have resided near the bottom of the chain. Minds that if not extinguished would have flourished and led to the growth of the species as a whole. Regrettably it is this lack of self awareness that they are all human that I must say while having many tremendous qualities has proven they are clearly not ready to join us at this time.
Alien #1: Your recommendation has been entered humans admission to the the Advanced Collective of Universal Planets has been denied at this time.
