I am outraged over the murder of George Floyd and the events that have taken place afterward. I am so sick and tired of hearing about #BlackLivesMatter. It’s not just about blacks, whites, Hispanics, etc. It’s about EVERY SINGLE LIFE on this beautiful earth God put us on. Yes, I am sure that the police officer who murdered Floyd was influenced by his skin color, but honestly, at this point, what does it have to do with anything? We are all Americans and it’s about time we started acting like it.
Law enforcement have always held a special place in my heart, but only for the upstanding officers. Why bash all the LEOS, when not everyone is corrupt or has ulterior motives? All of those cops who participated in the murder should be prosecuted to the FULLEST extent. In the video Floyd was clearly detained. He wasn’t going anywhere so the excessive force was unnecessary. But seriously, paid leave for those cops???? How do the department and local government allow that?
I understand protesting, but straight up rioting is completely uncalled for. It’s a shame that there isn’t enough room to lock every one of you up for this nonsense because it makes you no worse than the cops who murdered Floyd.
“Racial Injustice.” I’m tired of everything being about race. Yes, hate crimes are awful and we should all love our brothers and sisters no matter the color, but why does it always have to circle back to blacks saying that basically everyone who is white hates them and wants them dead? Allie Beth Stucky says it best: “ Are we not allowed to care about this without being accused of being callous, privileged, or racist? Why can’t we mourn death, decry injustice and also be heartbroken over the devastation that’s occurring there- which will ruin people’s lives?” (Posted on her Instagram stories in reference to the riots that have resulted from Floyd’s killing.)
In the end, it will sadly continue. The media will always take a side and twist stories to put the country in unrest. Because the fact of the matter is, more black people are killed by black people than they are killed by white cops. Justice should be served for George Floyd and it should be swift, but the current reactions by the public are not the way. Use your first amendment to protest this the right way!
Matthew 22:39 “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.“
“Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.”

Abortion is a topic at the forefront on everyone’s mind lately. After New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act for New York, abortion has been the cause of many arguments between republicans and democrats. This bill is different than what abortion laws used to be. Now, an abortion can be done after 24 weeks, and non-doctors can administer abortions. Abortions in NY are not illegal any more.
As both a Christian and someone with common sense, I recognize abortion for what it is, MURDER. From the moment a child is conceived, it is a HUMAN BEING. Just because a baby has to rely on the mother while in the womb, doesn’t change that fact. That same concept also applies to infants, toddlers, and older children.
A fellow blogger wrote about this heated topic. His post “Life is Precious” discusses the relationship between God and an unborn human life. Here’s an excerpt:
“The Bible says, “In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being” (Job 12:10). God, the giver of life himself commands us not to take the life of the innocent: “Do not shed innocent blood” (Jeremiah 7:6), and He warns us, “Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person” (Deuteronomy 27:25). The Sixth Commandment, written in stone by the hand of God almighty, commands, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13).”
So those of you who agree with me, don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. It’s the only way to make it in this cruel world. And while I am a contender that all lives matter-not just black or white etc.- baby lives especially matter.
