Black Lives Matter: The Truth Behind the Movement

We’ve already had this conversation, so why must we continue to talk about!?  Have we not already established that Black Lives Matter is not only racist, but is also selective in which black lives actually matter? You’ve never heard about David Dorn because the media didn’t report it. He was a retired officer in St.Louis. He was a hero. But don’t forget about the countless other black lives that have been lost over the past few months that you haven’t heard of. Why aren’t you screaming Black Lives Matter for them? Do only convicted felons who were justifiably shot by white police matter? What about the millions of black babies that are aborted year after year? The founder of Planned Parenthood built up that murderous organization with the sole purpose of killing black babies. So tell me, why are you only crying out for Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd when there are so many other black lives that go unrecognized?

No one is denying that Floyd wasn’t murdered, so why can’t we move on from that? You’ve said your peace now lets keep moving. Brooks was not murdered and frankly neither was Breonna Taylor. The media will only ever report what they want you to hear, which most of the time is fake news. The whole point of BLM is an agenda by the left as a ploy to get votes. If racism was really as big of a deal as the media and democrats make it out to be, don’t you think that your black president, Obama, would have dealt with that issue? The left is very scared of Trump holding the presidential title for another four years. Election years have always been the wildest in America. What better way to keep the people distracted from the real matters at hand than by creating false flags to guilt them into voting for no good people. Nobody in this world is perfect and the Bible proves it. So people need to stop acting like someone is and then get mad when they make a mistake. Trump is human just like everybody else so he is bound to make mistakes. I am not a huge fan of his character but his policies and leadership are pretty good. He has made strides for the black community in the past four years. Black are at an all time low for unemployment and poverty. (Before corona.) Blacks are no more oppressed than any other race in this country.

If you want to end racism, take Morgan Freeman’s advice and stop talking about race. It is that simple. Stop making things about one race and instead make it all inclusive for all races jobs. #AllLivesMatter, including #BlueLives.

Perception

Our uniqueness makes us special, makes perception valuable – but it can also make us lonely. This loneliness is different from being ‘alone’: You can be lonely even surrounded by people. The feeling I’m talking about stems from the sense that we can never fully share the truth of who we are. I experienced this acutely at an early age.“~ Amy Tan

L is for What?

Valentine’s Day is a huge holiday for business and couples. Besides there being “love in the air”, a lot of us tend to think about what we love. (Especially us single people 😉)

So I challenged myself to finish the sentence I love… in 10 different ways. Some of these are true, others, just mere poetics.

I love how your eyes sparkle in the moonlight.
I love the smell of decadent chocolates.
I love the smell of old books.
I love the way my heart beats to the sound of the music.
I love how there is bible verse for any and every life situation we are in.
I love how I live in a country that allows me (for now at least) to share with people my thoughts on different topics.
I love the sound of a baby’s laugh.
I love my friends and family and all they do for me.
I love all the beauty that can be found in nature.
I love when it snows and it blankets everything in white.

 

What are some things that you love?

Simple Things

Simple things. It’s the little things in life that we tend to take for granted. Something like watching a pretty sunset on your back porch. The beauty we don’t take in until it’s right there in front of you.

Christmas is definitely taken for granted by most people. We don’t think of all the hard work that had to happen for us to receive those wrapped boxes under the tree. No one thinks of all the hours and hours of labor just to make some pocket change. Or how long it takes to shop for the perfect gift and then wrap it. Also, those big dinners mom and grandma make with hours slaving over the stove.

And the ability to make those last minute day trips you take just for fun because you have nothing better to do.

So the point is don’t let the little things slip through your fingers. Don’t forget where it all came from, that it could all be gone in an instant. Always be grateful for the moments and never take it for granted.
