I said a prayer for Laquan McDonald; the officer; the families; Chicago; America AND… the whole-wide-world tonight. (11:45-ish pm, 11/24/15).
I awoke from a light sleep earlier to reports of a cop being found GUILTY of murder in the 2014 shooting of Laquan, a 17 year old boy in Chicago. Hhhmmm…a peaceful protest was being filmed of individuals walking down the middle of a Chicago street and then blocking off an entire intersection. The scene was PEACEFUL…at the time.
I said nothing to Chris as my mind began forming opinions regarding the scenario. Chris…???…???…???…was angry about the evolving protest. “The cop was found guilty.” The end result was “GOOD,” right??? RIGHT!!! So, why protest when the “RIGHT” judgment was rendered??? “GOOD” will NEVER be “GOOD ENOUGH”. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
I suddenly want to S-C-R-E-A-M: STOP…IN THE NAME OF LOVE!!! Everything appears peaceful, BUT…EVERYONE…EVERYWHERE…is searching for something negative. WHY???!!!???!!!???!!!
The news media is as much at fault as anyone!!! Reporters keep asking questions to provoke angry responses among peers/teammates. WHY??? “THIS” chaos…should NOT be surprising, folks. EVERYTHING occurring has already been prophesied. We ALREADY know things are going to get worse. We ALREADY know the ending to this story, folks. GOD WINS!!!
SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS!!! Share the Word. Share His LOVE. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Do NOT allow yourself to be drawn in to the negativity, folks. Please be willing to call a spade a spade. “IT IS…WHAT IT IS!!!” THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF THIS WORLDLY CHAOS. THE ENEMY IS SATAN, folks!!! NOT PEOPLE.
DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE PART OF THE PROBLEM, folks!!! RISE ABOVE…and display a sense of “PEACE” for the acceptance that “IT IS…WHAT IT IS” while continuing in “PEACE” to find resolution within the “SELF”: My”SELF;” Your”SELF;” Him”SELF;” Her”SELF;” Their”SELF; etc., etc., etc.
There will NEVER be total resolution of “OLD”…???…???…???…”STUFF,” folks. Let us move forward…TOGETHER…finding GOOD/GOD in ALL situations.
ACCEPT. REPENT. FORGIVE. AND MOVE FORWARD…IN LOVE.
GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!! ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
