Say A Little Prayer

Today as I have for several days, I felt a little guilt. The guilt I felt was over the joy of not having another storm heading towards my state. I am thankful that Mississippi is being spared Irene. If it sounds selfish it is. However, I have watched the people here carry on after storms and floods. I know the people here are very resilient but another Katrina after the year of storms we have weathered thus far this year would be a bit much for any sane mind left in the state.

I send out a prayer for those in the path of Irene. I solicit the prayers of others for the people in the path of Irene. Positive thought in my view can do much. Keep positive thoughts flowing for those facing Irene.

With love, light, and joy.

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
