In Response to the recent murders of #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile

Being Human, Is not the Same as a Human Being. #Injustices #GunLaws #PeopleLaws

I hate using the race card, like I hate it when people chalk the power of God up to coincidences, but these senseless murders of our young men publicized in the media recently is not a fluke. There are just more ways/platforms/tools available to the average joe to bring awareness to injustices around the world. My question is not: “Is this really happening? …but more like, “What will you do when it happens to you- when the next victim is in your family- will it be your son or your daughter on the news next?

Will I be a target for writing this post? Is this what every great warrior felt like when they became aware that the power to bring about change actually lived within them. The power was in their very own voice, march, protest, freedom of speech, sit in, right to vote, to protect our own, to become fathers to the fatherless, and mothers to the motherless, to turn off the tv and shutdown the snapchats to stop allowing our minds to be poisoned with foolishness. Following trends designed for your destruction. There’s no filter for ignorance, and there’s no hashtag for being dead at 18, 34, 21, 7

Don’t just share this message, stop just sharing these videos! Let’s Do Something!They are turning our children into slaves and locking them up for free labor. Click To Tweet We can take back our communities — — these are our kids!! Stop letting the world tell us how to raise our kids — if they can’t pray in the schools take your kids out of them! Your tax dollars pay for their education — don’t sleep on this! They are arresting us for whipping our children only so they can discipline them in the system. They are turning our children into slaves and locking them up for free labor. Our water is toxic and our children are being born with more and more birth defects.  Move around in groups, don’t let your kids become a target. #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile Click To Tweet

#AltonSterling #PhilandoCastileWake Up & Do Something!

Our food is raised on farms, we never see in conditions we would never live in but we eat the food in fine restaurants so that makes it ok. WAKE UP!  Start Small, organize my sisters and my brothers I don’t care what your race is: ORGANIZE! Open your house up to your neighbors children, keep your eyes on your streets. Run the crime out and bring the community in. Raise up a new generation of children with respect for the elders and for the life our ancestors fought so hard for us to have. Move around in groups, don’t let your kids become a target. Human Beings are a species, Being Human is a choice. #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile. Click To Tweet

Protect Our sons and our daughters. We’ve become addicts for attention from a world that simply does not care! Stop recording and start reaching!!! Be Human, not a human being.

Being human is not the same as a human being. If you don’t know the difference,
chances are you are NOT being human.

TO BE HUMAN MEANS TO BECOME
Fully awake to life, as a gift from God, a choice to give back every inspiring act investED act within yourself
MOMENTS When your experiences would override your desire for a formal education
YOU GAVE REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES
…….Every lesson learned
every dollar earned……,,
even the stripes on your back
or the times you suffered lack :
was
is
did
does teach you what it is like to be human
to be real
to cry
to laugh
to be too close to insanity
to keep it together when others fall apart
to carry more than your share
to take from others, when you should be giving back
to give to people when you should be receiving or reaping your harvest
to forgive
and exercise the strength to:
heal while hurting
to rejoice….and be thankful
to
embrace the very idea of yourself
as being HUMAN
IS TO KNOW GOD
Revelation #confirmed voices heard inwardly
to be sure you are not alone even when you are the only person in the room.
Human Beings are a species
Being Human is a choice.
I have made mine, will you make yours?
