Day 35 2012

Okay I have missed several days of posting. I have been laying waste to what is left of my life. Good news I am the better for the events. I have been able to see how to fix what has been wrong. My 14 year old actually showed to me the path. The student became the teacher. He showed to me my words in action. He has made a positive turn in his life using my words. He has issued the challenge for me to do the same.

Positive note I am down a few inches. Negative note the inches were made less the wrong way. Lack of sleep and food. Eating properly, exercise, and sleep are the only way for good health. Today is still young but I have accomplished most of the goals set for myself today. Stepping out on faith.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
