Justice

If you seek justice by following a path of chaos, your final destination will only be injustice. It is better to be listened to than merely heard.

The Light of Truth in a Storm

From my observations, the different organizations in this craziness have more in common than differences. Both seek “justice” at some level. Justice for a dead man, and justice for the person who caused his death. The organizations are large and funded. Both have legitimate concerns. Both watch this video and are disgusted.

Most importantly, they want the world to know that a small group within each respective organization, BLM, Police, and others, do not represent the values of the whole. Riot instigators causing problems during legitimate, legal, and peaceful protests. Known problem officers that conduct themselves in a manner that 99.9% of other officers would never approve.

This is a two way street. What these organizations must realize is the street traveled is actually a one-way with the same destination, justice. Words are weapons for good and bad. Seek the good words. Listen to the words and not the noise created by media outlets. If no one is listening and blame is placed on the whole, each organization negates their purpose and becomes exactly what they protest.

Storms break and in the middle the light of truth shines.

There will always be bad actors, together we hold them, I say again, together we hold them, the responsible individuals accountable. That is where you will find the justice you seek.

Positive isn’t Always the News

I have noticed something lately, and it’s not a negative thing and definitely deserves attention. During these strange times, it’s obvious how negative stories can dominate headlines, because apparently that is the news. Yet right in front of all of us are real acts of kindness, heart, and compassion.

I am seeing true American ingenuity. For example, several of our fitness experts and gym owners like Dion SgroMariah Prussia, and April Imholte are providing online workouts for people to do in their homes. I am seeing parents teaching their children about cooking, conserving resources, and using technology to teach their children who are currently at home due to this situation. People like Rozalyn Howery taking her children on virtual tours of many places in the world through the internet and reading books.

Our small businesses, like restaurants are offering carryout services. These Americans are still there, still serving our communities.

Even social clubs are encouraging online groups to help maintain some socialization. It’s different, but allows some level of interaction and a breath of normal.

American resilience and ingenuity has always prevailed, and always will. We can take a lesson from those like Teresa Terry who understand the gravity of these times, but know how to find the best in not only the situation, but their fellow Americans, encouraging people to remember compassion.

People like Dave Jopp who encourage music and keep people entertained through radio.

People like Sandy Zok who offer their expertise to those who may need some type of social service.

People like Josh Kehr, who continues to play excellent music and offers help to those who may need deliveries or anything else.

These are just a small sample of the positive things happening during this time.

In the end, this virus, like any other virus or crisis, does not discriminate against your skin color, past, present, ethnicity, political affiliation, or sexual orientation. In the end, we will prevail as we always have. In the end, we are all still human. Be kind and compassionate to those most vulnerable in our society.

Reach out should you need help, it is out there. Support your local small businesses, neighbors, and friends. Thank you for being a great American.
