Continue To Come Together

Continue To Come Together


Pictured above, although society has made it hard for mixed families in the past, I sure feel blessed to be growing (in culture). Here is our improved generation, now including heritage (Africa and Mexico into our mix) no short of the many places in my genes alone: Irish, Polish, French, Bohemian (taken over by Czech) and Italian, that I know of. We represent many places and are blessed, in this (work in progress) of a nation we call home. Would like to mention and thank God, for the gift of my beautiful niece & nephew …


So very sorry to learn that I am privileged in this country. I have always felt average, but recently learning the truth, and am  hurt to realize there are many feeling oppressed. I would like to say thank you Joel Olsteen (see yourself at JoelOlsteen.com) for this morning’s sermon. Yes, God truly is our chain-breaker and you are right, we should all remove the yolks to feel the full extent of our freedoms. We are all responsible to learn in our lifetime, I understood it that my Irish heritage was also slaves, I was wrong after reading in history this morning, that my small amount of heritage were not really full extent of slaves https://www.historyireland.com/volume-25/issue-4-julyaugust-2017/features-issue-4-julyaugust-2017/curse-cromwell-revisiting-irish-slavery-debate/ but more like servants in the past. 

So, I hope everyone agrees, our ever changing for our better is a good idea.  We all must realize it will take time and a lot of work from many. I am confident and grateful to our dedicated leaders, working tirelessly to #RightTheWrongs in present times. I feel hopeful to our improving this nation and pray for the victims of brutality.  We just must remain safely cautious in this CO19 health-times, don't want more innocent lives lost from this virus. I remain strictly opinionated, that losing more lives of innocent people by spread of this germ is not the answer, and stealing or destroying others property or our country's businesses (that have worked hard in our communities) is also not the answer. Would like to remind others, I am still thankful we have selfless frontline workers, in hopes we appreciate them as I do, in fighting for all of our lives in every color of the rainbow and nationality of our land, and never giving up on us. I as well as many, support "Black Lives Matter" it is all about bridging superficial differences (color, nationality, and race) and we all should embrace our differences, not cause divisions, with realizing communication is key to understanding.  Please be mindful of how others feel (in empathy) and continue to respect each other and come together in unity for all our good ...
