We live in a society that is so quick to point the finger. I had a mother who simply taught us color does not matter. If you break it, you fix it. If you break someone else's property or damage it you make it right and replace it. If you do something wrong there will be consequences. No one can deny that our police department has been taught to be trained liars. They believe their own lies. The recent videos that have surfaced show they have been taught if they can articulate a lie it is okay. However, they stand behind a uniform that is suppose to represent and command honor, respect and loyalty.
When you see a murder on video or a grown man throwing a child across the room in her chair at school, how can you even begin to justify the behavior? I think we use terms like entitled, white privilege, and white lies to sugar coat what it really is. I am a believer in calling you what you are. I tell my children they are lying if they are lying to help them understand it is not just a tale, it is a LIE when you don't tell the truth you have lied. I tell them the TRUTH because I truly want them to be HONORABLE.
The culture can not be judged by black or white the culture can only be judged by wrong or right. We need to stop hiding behind little cliches that make us feel like it is okay to be dishonorable. We need to hold people accountable for their actions whether they are white, black, green or pink. We have to get to a place where we are honorable people.
We are dealing with a situation right now where an entity has caused us major harm. We are expecting them to do the right thing and fix our property. The problem is they are trying to minimize what they need to do to correct it. They should want to correct the harm they have done and I should not have to force them to do so. People wonder why illness and sickness come on them but we have to do right by each other. I simply leave people in the hands of God, this is not my world and I am only here but for a short time. I simply try to do the right thing. If I break it I am going to pay for it because it is the right thing to do. It may take me time to juggle all my expenses but I am going to fix it.
If we could just take our selfish ways out of the equation in America we could truly be the greatest nation ever. However, it is the lack of discipline and ability to truly be honorable that makes us suffer in the end. I was raised to believe if you do good, good will follow you so I have tried my best to do good. I trust God to vindicate me. I trust God to vindicate all the people who have been harmed by our police departments across the nation. I only pray that our officials will ensure there are better practices in hiring the people who are suppose to serve and protect. I only pray that we will teach our children to be better than we were and to live their lives in an honorable way and then God can do the miraculous and heal our land.
2 Chronicles 7: 14 said it best If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
