Peace in the valley

America, we have an issue.  We are becoming a nation of trigger happy people.  Why?  At some point we need to work on conflict resolution.  Why are we having fights and shootings amongst church members?

I am not seeing Jesus in churches these days.  Maybe if we return Jesus to the Christian churches we will see Jesus in the legislation put forth by members of the GOP claiming to be God fearing. 

Oh how I wish they would follow Jesus rather than talk about him to me.

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

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.
