So here we all are today, and we all know what tomorrow brought back then. We also know what type of people we are, and that united, we can even beat back the scourge of a pandemic. Speaking of, (the pandemic), I guess it is officially over, that is as far as the press is concerned. Social distancing, rules about masks? Now what?
The silver lining of the pandemic, is that when our priorities are right, and we come together united as one, we can be amazingly quite unselfish when it comes to protecting human life. We did what we were told, and untold thousands of lives were saved. We knew it would hurt our economy, and we knew how dangerous life can be. In short we did the right thing, we chose life over money. We also knew that united for a cause common to us all, that we had and still have the ability to replenish our resources, and return to our place as a leader of the economic engine that so empowered us. In short, We will rebuild and make it better than it was.
Think of what we went through, and how we not only survived, but thrived! A failed political coup, a pandemic, and now this! When I first viewed the horror of that killing, and the fact that it was a white cop, and the young man black, My heart sank as I saw all this progress we made dim into a flickering ember. That which once was, a raging inferno of progress and hope. The American people had awoken, things like patriotism were no longer corny, you might say we had our swag back, we believed in ourselves, people were filled with hope, as we woke to the fact that We are the government, and those politicians work for us, we would choose the path and they would legislate us according to the paths we chose.
So my prayer then?, and I hope your's too, that we would come together again, certainly righting this horrible wrong who.. Can you imagine dealing with the fact that you not only murdered an innocent man, but you may also have murdered a country? Please people, we have come too far to go back. Justice be served, and this policeman pay the full penalty. A murder was committed, on that we can all agree, but if after all we've been through, including a Pandemic, we as a people shall not let this dissuade us either. Because when you come right down to it, look way beyond the politics that will be played from any end, and understand the simplicity of it. When the dust clears and the chatter dies down, there are only two points of view, two ways to go. There is evil and there is good, and we all have to serve somebody. Choose to follow after the wrong side, and you are part of the problem, or choose to do the right thing, and be part of the solution. I wish I could tell you the what and the why of it but I can't. What I know simply put is, all of these huge problems are bigger than any person, and as the Lord said, If you will humble yourself and pray to me I will heal your land. And that my friend is a promise from the highest authority.
