The World as i see it

Monday, June 15

As a whole, I support and respect our law enforcement because of their important contribution to society and sacrifice for our country which does not mean I agree with ALL of their actions neither am I putting ALL the blame on the public. Do I think the way George Floyd was killed is awful? Absolutely. He was simply killed in cold blood by a corrupt human and did not deserve to lose his life. It breaks my heart. Do we know exactly why the cop did it or if it was an act of racism? Unfortunately no. We don't know the intentions of his heart. Do I think police officers can escalate situations too quickly? Absolutely. However, if you are not in their shoes, you don’t know what may have triggered their actions which could certainly be the individual’s ‘look’ or color of skin. The stereotypes our society holds can contribute to the situation. But, also a lack of compliance from the individual could be the issue. We need to take responsibility for our own actions as well and lose the idea of entitlement. They are human and make wrong decisions or judgments just like every other human. We can’t forget about how stressful their position is. There are bad cops that take advantage of their authority but there are also good ones that risk their lives every day to protect us. We can’t let a few corrupt cops determine our opinion of ALL cops just like we can’t let a few corrupt black individuals determine our opinion of ALL black individuals. I am not saying that we should just roll over and ignore the bad but we also shouldn’t blame the whole for the sins of a few and only see the negative. It comes down to individual accountability on their part and ours.

As for me, I am putting my full trust in God and not the justice system, government, etc. because unfortunately, we don’t always receive the justice or reform that we would like to see which doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t try to promote change. However, I know that God is the only one who can fix our broken country at its core and transform souls. Police brutality and racism are real and unfortunate issues that are worth fighting for. However, those issues are not the root of our nation’s turmoil. The media has become one of our biggest enemies. We need to step back and look at the negative contribution from the media, hidden agendas, and the lack of Christ. We never know what is true and what is fabricated but yet tend to believe everything we see or read without further education on the subject matter. We are letting the media control our lives and influence our thoughts. The fear embedded in us comes from it. We are quick to do what the media or those in power suggest and let our freedoms be stripped away from us without hesitation. I now understand how Adolf Hitler gained so much control and power. If you ask me, I will say that the virus itself is real, but is a part of a huge, evil scheme that has been brewing for years by Bill Gates and several others with similar or different motives that I don’t even want to begin to try to explain right now. Unfortunately, we live in a time where it’s hard to trust anybody whether that’s the government, law enforcement, the media, etc. so the only solution I see is to put our faith in God, seek answers, unite as Americans, and be the change you want to see in the world.

I am just sharing what I stand for and value. I am thankful to have that freedom to do so because of all the men and women who have fought and are fighting for our freedoms which there are many veterans who are police officers, and us defunding them because of the actions of the corrupt ones is a slap in the face. Am I saying that we shouldn’t do anything to fix the problem? No. I just think that if we are going to fight to defund anything, it should be abortion clinics! Our nation’s priorities are completely backwards! Referring to COVID19, we couldn’t/can’t go to church but yet liquor stores and abortion clinics are considered essential businesses.. that seems awfully wrong to me! I have chosen to focus on making a difference for the things that I am whole-heartedly passionate about such as the child protective services system which does not mean that I don’t care about the other issues nor will I make others feel inferior for not supporting the same things as me. The murder of George Floyd angers and saddens me but I will not make him a martyr when he wasn’t an upstanding citizen because that is not true to my values. If you choose to do so, that is your choice. As for me, I will continue to want justice for the thousands of babies that are being killed every day and for kids like Gabriel Fernandez where the system completely failed him. If you feel driven to stand up for what you believe in, do it—I applaud you. It is your right to do so, but do it civilly and don’t degrade me or others for not having the same passions or opinions as you.

Another deep problem that I am seeing is the lack of patriotism and respect. For example, the way that our president is being treated is part of the problem. No matter what he does, it will never be ‘right’. We should be at least showing some respect and decency putting differences aside. How can we expect our country to be better when we are all against each other including the president of our nation in which we have no control over at this time? I may not agree with ALL the choices Trump has made nor ALL of the things he has said or done, however, I support him and pray that he is making the right calls. I do know that tearing him down does not help our situation. If you don’t want him as our president for the next term, then don’t vote for him. It is as simple as that. The big divide in our world needs to end.

If you are reading this, I hope that you can respect my thoughts even if they are different from yours. I am just simply sharing my perspective with others.
