The single word brings about images of terror, protests, and the five fallen police officers in Dallas. It is time for America to get back on track.
It is time to stop the hatred and spouting of vile words! Black Lives Matter should be All Lives Matter. And the Black Panther Party, well I see no difference in you from the sixties. You see I was there in Atlanta and Augusta Ga. I saw you raping, killing, and stealing from your own kind in the name of seeking justice. You did not differentiate the color of skin. Violence dripped like a mad dog, from the salvia in your mouth.
I saw the men of my small town, my own father, stand with the police at the Hilltop Drive-in Movie Theatre. Their guns loaded and scoped down on the bridge where you would come over from Augusta. Waiting on the National Guard to arrive. They did not want to kill anyone, but The Black Panthers were not coming into North Augusta. The police and the men were there to protect all the people of North Augusta…black and white.
So I say to you Black Lives Matter, The Black Panther Party, and the all protesters…
Police chief, David Brown, gave you a challenge to become part of the solution. Fill out an application and join the Blue. They will put you in your neighborhoods, the place you want change, and give you an opportunity to create real change!
Can you stop the talk and walk the walk? That is real courage. Anger and hatred does not change a situation, only love. Vocal, violent protests does not bring about real change, only love. Can you walk the walk?
Will you accept the challenge!
Johnny Cash became The Man in Black because of the injustice in the world. He wanted to be a simple reminder. A quiet, peaceful reminder. The way Jesus said it should be done…with love.
Jesus has called me to walk in love and I pray that all of my sites will demonstrate love from this day forward.
Can you walk the walk with me?
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
