With all of that in common how is it we spend so much time attacking the God-given differences we were dealt? We are told to rejoice and we rebel. We are instructed to take care of our fellow man and we steal their joy, freedoms, rights, and abilities to prosper. We even steal their lives. Lives that in our hands, we have not been granted. When we kill we steal what only God has given.
Our world is crumbling. We are slipping backwards into a greater time of ignorance. We are playing out the worse possible outcomes in front of a generation that has not asked for any of this chaos. We are teaching, reinforcing, portraying the worst of times when for them it should be their best of times.
And the real joke is on those who believe they are insulated from the repercussions of today's events. There are those among us who do not subscribe to the ripple affect of the images before them. It is happening somewhere else, to someone else, at some one else's peril.
This must have been the same thing the American Indian thought when native Africans were being enslaved.The same thing the Jews thought when American Blacks were being enslaved. The same those around the world thought as Apartheid reared its ugly head. The same Americans thought as Ebola was "over there." All someone else's unfortunate situation.
That is until that unstoppable force of real change comes knocking. Then like it or not.......everyone must choose a side of history.
