Hello to all my viewers, friends, and valued supporters.  It’s been quite a while since I have been around, but it’s been crazy busy!!!  I got a new job, my daughter and son-in-law bought a house so with moving and getting settled in on my job, this is the first time I’ve had a chance to sit down and write anything.  Not to mention that my laptop is on the fritz so I’ve had to turn my tablet into a mini laptop…so bear with me. I am making plans to get it looked at or even get a new one.

We have seen what’s been going on across this great nation.  I wanted to reiterate what I had stated on Facebook weeks ago.  So, protests, especially when it is spread across the nation based on someone who has lost their life to the police is often escalated to unnecessary violence and destruction of property aimed at people who had absolutely nothing to do with the original crime itself.  We are losing sight of what actually happened and who it happened to, and who was at fault.

When people start targeting businesses and other individuals who become innocent victims, you have to ask yourself what did they have to do with the crime itself?  How were they directly involved?  I get sick and tired of people acting out of content because they want to show they have something to prove.

I agree that all law enforcement personnel need to be held accountable for every human being who has lost their life at the hands of a police offficer, at the same time it is not a personal invitation to go targeting businesses (large or small), or individuals of other ethnic backgrounds — those individuals who do this should also be found and prosecuted for the damage and pain they’ve caused.  It goes both ways!

When we lose sight of what they are really protesting about, that it when it turns ugly…that is when things take a turn for the worse.  We need to stop the insanity on both levels starting with keeping the police officers in complete control.  Just because they wear a badge does not give them the right to overstep their level of authority.

Stop the unnecessary destruction of businesses and looting.  None of it makes America better.  People who were expecting to return to work are now finding they can’t because the damage and theft to businesses had set them back and delayed many from returning to work.

COVID-19 is already keeping us apart, why keep adding to it?  I’m not seeing a whole lot in the news of anymore rioting and protesting, so I am hoping things are starting to slow and settle down.  Please let George Floyd’s family be in peace and grieve without the violence that is not going to bring him back.  Yes, black lives matter, but in truth ALL LIVES MATTER.  We cannot come together if racism is going to keep being the tool that keeps tearing us down.

Live. Love. And let’s get along tother as one.  We are not born racist.  It is taught and learned.  Let’s ebolish it once and for all.  Come together and unite as a whole.  This can make America better.

One love ya’ll.
