In the wake of yet another shooting taking place in Dallas, Texas it truly makes one wonder what the hell is going on with our country?
Day after day social media and news outlets are filled with violence, race issues and hate. Our streets are filled with protesters and the men and women who serve our country, our cities and states are criticized and hated upon.
The color of ones skin appears to be a primary issue. Racism has long been an issue in our country, but hey…we are not living in the 1920’s people. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t see video, or a news article where a ‘white’ police officer shoots a ‘black’ man or woman. Now, we have gunman targeting ‘white’ police officers. Our countries issue with race will never go away if we don’t stop talking about it. We are ALL human. We all have the same blood coursing through our veins and we all breath the same air. The best way to stop all this hate, is to stop talking about it.
White, black, yellow or gray…we are ALL the same. The same people who attack the police for shooting someone, are the same people who would call the police if they were in trouble. Oh, and there are thousands of ‘black’ officers too! So sweet baby Jesus…lets get a grip people.
Our world is going to shit and protesting in the streets isn’t going to stop it. Blasting live video feeds of a man dying after being shot by a police officer, isn’t going to stop it. Blasting news of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and creating a division where only one color of ones skin matters is ridiculous. Sure black lives matter, hell, ALL LIVES MATTER people.
There is no doubt that some of these shootings that take place at the hands of police officers are unwarranted. However, there are many that are. A white, black or purple officer has the right to defend themselves and ensure that they go home at the end of the day. If an officer tells you to keep your hands up, you keep your hands up…no matter what color you are.
In short, we need to unify as a country. We need to end the violence and stop making it primary news. We need to help one another verses hurt one another.
The United States of America used to be the land of opportunity. A place filled with freedom and a land that could make all your dreams come true if you worked hard. Now, we are killing our own citizens. Dependent on the Government for handouts, forced to decide whether our next leader is one who is currently being investigate by her own country, or one that is so pompous and clueless it’s nerve racking.
We have schools in Detroit that are falling apart, literally falling apart. Our children are not even able to attend school in a city that was once a thriving part of our country. We send our soldiers over seas to rebuild schools in the middle of the sand, when we should be making our own country stronger. Uniting our citizens and getting a handle on all of the violence.
John Lennon wasn’t too far off when he wrote ‘All you need is love, love is all you need‘. Love creates unity and harmony, the hate which is taking high priority over love is clearly just breeding more hate, violence and a strong disconnect and divide of American citizens.
We could go on and on about all of the issues in America, but the point is this. It doesn’t matter what color you are, what you do for a job or what type of genitals you have. It is about the person. The soul. The heart.
Donald Trump is right in saying we need to make America great again, that I will agree with. America is not great right now. Love your neighbor. Treat people the way you would want to be treated and stop the division of our own citizens.
