Today I am sad. Yesterday I was sad as well.
My heart is heavy.
I like many others heard of the story of yet another black man in his 40’s killed by Police.
“Your knee in my neck. I can’t breathe… Mama. Mama,” Mr Floyd pleaded.
Mr Floyd slowly grew silent and motionless, unable to move even as the officers taunted him to “get up and get in the car.”
Why are these killings allowed to happen and to go unpunished. This is someone’s son and why is this OK????
If this were a dog, a cat or any other animal, everyone would be up in arms. There would be loud outcries and huge protests.
No one of us so-called powerful humans can prolong our own lives if God does not decree it to be so. Why then is this OK? No one can be forced to love anyone else but since we are all born into this universe that belongs to GOD and we had nothing to do with why, when, where HE chooses to place us and how HE decides we should look … we do not, should not feel like we own more of God’s universe than anyone else.
Not one of us had the choice on what race we are!
I am the mother of two sons, they were born in love, raised in love, they are not a menace to society. My heart aches for his mother, his family, for him!
As Ms Bernice King so aptly states:
If you’re unbothered or mildly bothered by the 1st knee, but outraged by the 2nd, then, in my father’s words, you’re “more devoted to order than to justice.” And more passionate about an anthem that supposedly symbolizes freedom than you are about a Black man’s freedom to live.
Father God when? This has to end!!
