End of June…July…Independence?

June ended taking away an independence for women of their privacy and the freedom to choose and decide how their lives and health would be affected revolving around pregnancy with the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

June couldn’t have ended on a more devastating and backward act of stifling progress and the realization that life in America confirms that humans are not the most intelligent life in the universe… From the Hill to the population…

July brings in Independence Day…

How can Independence Day bring about celebration in a country that suppresses…oppresses…deprives its constituents of basic human rights…and destroys progress by sending women’s privacy and health back to the dark ages…while suppressing and changing voting rights that stack the deck against the practice and meaning of democracy?

What population cohesiveness will July bring forth?

The use of “cohesiveness” is with hope…

America has been flying divided for far too long…

Are we witnessing the fall of yet another country that has taken advantage of the sovereignty entrusted to it?

When will the American people exercise their independence and stand up to those who have shackled their freedoms with endless lies and manipulations–the majority of the GOP? Democrats are losing ground because they continue to believe that the Republicans will engage in bipartisan politics…someday…and they refuse to fight fire with fire…Huge mistake! All the while they are playing this docile game, the “united states” continues to drift into the great divide.

Meanwhile….The political slavery of Trump’s specter and his GOP constituents continues to haunt…dismantle…weaken, dissolve and cripple democracy which threatens to reduce America to hell on earth…and plummet hard won freedoms into oblivion…such as Roe v. Wade…and the right to vote, a cornerstone of American Democracy.

Our “Independence Day” will come when everyone truly understands the meaning of independence…and how it cannot be severed and conditional to human rights…by marginalizing freedom…free-will…and the right to be your own person…

The practice of these oppressive acts are quite contrary to Independence Day…

July…Independence?

Juneteenth…in June…

Independence Day…in July…

Both are one in the illusive pursuit of…Freedom…

What will July expose?

We will find out…

July is here…

Stand up…

Another battle for independence has arrived….

Thank You, Mississippi!

Thank you, Mississippi…for once again demonstrating your appreciation and “preservation” of life and rights…

A few of your stellar examples are Emmett Till…

James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner…

Medgar Evers…

Mississippi…The state with the most documented lynchings…

Appealing to the Supreme Court after a federal district court agreed that the state enacted law banning abortion after 15 weeks was unconstitutional…

Such an exemplary record…in depriving life…civil rights…and human rights!

The torture…mutilation…and murder of Emmett Till…a 14-year-old…August 28, 1955…

The murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner…three civil rights activists…known as the Freedom Summer murders…June 21, 1964…

Medgar Evers was assassinated by white supremacists on June 12, 1963…He was a civil rights activist and the NAACP’s first field secretary…

What about the value of the lives of the aforementioned? What about the pain and suffering their loss of life incurred? Why weren’t they protected? Where were their civil and human rights?

The citizens and the state of Mississippi ended lives…took away civil and human rights from countless individuals they had no authority or rights to do so…and were allowed to do so…with premeditation and malice…without accountability…

Now…Mississippi’s continued interference in dictating a woman’s right to her body by restricting her freedom to choose how she can proceed with her reproductive and health rights…forcing rape and incest acts to prevail in a victim’s life…should pregnancy result from such brutal and invasive, forced events…has catapulted women’s rights back to the dark ages!

Pro-life advocates have forgotten one, crucial fact…

Your views on abortion…are your views…your right…and YOUR choice!

Pro-choice advocates are entitled to their views…their rights…and THEIR choice!

That is what “freedom” means…

Civil and human rights ARE NOT infringed upon by YOUR views…or YOUR choices…

Forcing your values and your views upon and into the lives of those outside of your life…is not your business!

Family members are entitled to their choices…you can agree to disagree…and if you love them…you support them…no matter what…because their book of life records their choices…not you…their emotions are theirs to bear…not yours…respect life by respecting their choices…not yours.

When will people understand that you do not “own” people?

Unborn souls are not voiceless…and they do not need anyone to speak for them…the “voice” that speaks for them is greater than your own…

Will you take the blood of an unwanted birth on your hands…should their life end abusively because their birth was forced?

Forcing your views upon others only results in tragedy in the long run…

Do you…and let others do what is best for them…

Roe v. Wade protected the personal choice of women…their health and safety… and their decisions to end pregnancies due to circumstances which adversely affected their physical, spiritual, mental and emotional well-being…inclusive of poverty and financial solvency…

This misplaced pro-life movement and “old world” Republican Supreme Court Jurists have placed many women in danger…

There will be an increase in suicides…

Their will be an increase in deaths from unsafe terminations…

There will be a rise in mental illness in women forced into motherhood…especially bearing children from incest and rape…

There will be more infants abandoned…or worse still…more infant and child abuse and mortality…

Women are not objects…they do not need other people to decide how they choose to manage their lives and their bodies…

Their choices do not need to be agreeable to anyone outside of themselves…

When we come to the end of our lives…our life journey and choice accountability is not in the hands of any human being…

Those who have taken on the role of a “supreme being” will stand most accountable at the end of their life’s journey…that is as certain as death and taxes…whether they paid taxes or not.

Thank you, Mississippi…

For reminding us that we who do understand what it means to protect rights on every level…Civil…Human…Women’s…have a long road ahead of us…

Once racism and misogyny are conquered…freedom and human rights will be understood…celebrated…and protected without hindrance…

Until then…

We take up the sword…

Armor up…

And continue…

Don’t Become Dismayed…Disheartened…Disenchanted…Depressed…

Don’t become dismayed…disheartened…disenchanted…or depressed with what is going on around you in the world…

Let it energize…empower…engage…enlighten…and move you to be determined to change and uplift your immediate surroundings and create a roadmap on your quest, widening your horizons into the world around you…

The only way to have a world that will reflect the beauty of its diversity…to enjoy the bounty of its abundance…and to feel peace and freedom from the depths of the soul outward…is to be it…by demonstration.

The quality of life that every human being desires…will only be…when humanity becomes the best of itself…and it begins with you…and the next person…and the next person…and so on…and so on…

We cannot run or hide from reality…or the realities of life that present themselves to us in the course of our everyday living…While humanity has introduced, imposed and practices restrictive ways of life to suppress at will, certain members of the human family…it is not the rule…and it is not the way.

The realities that are put forth on this blog are meant to remind us of the realities of our lives…the realities of what goes on around us…and the reality that we can make a difference…and we can bring about change.  There will always be challenges…there will always be obstacles…and our challenges and obstacles most often come from those closest to us…

Our loyalties must always stand with the betterment of humankind…in doing what is right…whenever choices are made against what is right…just…in truth…with love and in love…obstacles and challenges come into play and cast long and lasting shadows on progress and enlightenment…negating and damaging the positive strides made…

Decide who you really are…

Decide who controls your spirit…

Decide if you are a light…or a caster of shadows and destruction…

How will you touch the world?

How will you leave it?

Everyone leaves a footprint…

Every life is significant to its contribution…

In the proper circumstances…no participation can be significant in saving a life…or changing a life…think about that…

Don’t become dismayed…disheartened…disenchanted…depressed…

Become the change that brings light into the world…

Once you understand Love…

That understanding shines your light on everything…everyone…

Everywhere…

For all time….

Juneteenth…Freedom Is Not A Man Made Commodity…

Juneteenth commemorates freedom under the terms of the Emancipation Proclamation of 1862…the holiday was first celebrated in Texas on June 19th, 1865.

Freedom is not a man made commodity…it is a human right. Looking back into the past of American history is heartbreaking to imagine how such “intellectual minds” embraced such cruelties toward others who did not look like them…Indigenous people to America…Africans brought against their will from their continent and enslaved…Chinese and Japanese immigrants coming to America from 1785 well into the 1800’s…all members of the Human Race…as are those who made them captives (immigrants themselves) and tried to wipe them all out to extinction…some…they did manage to accomplish their extinction from the planet…

God created a world of color and diversity through evolution…

Choosing to play God by enforcing inflated ideologies that suppress and deprive life that is a part of a higher plan, has set in motion interventions that cannot be halted…especially since those who continue to go against the grain of progress and change…have abandoned the truth…the light…and the way…only to promote hatred and division…

When holidays are created out of granting standard human rights…what does that say about humanity?

One would think that such intelligent life that dwells on the planet Earth…would understand the meaning of life…connectivity…and the planet…and how these elements work together to sustain life…not destroy it.

Change is only slow when those steeped in self-centered, self-gain, and selfish motivations have no intention of allowing change and progress to deviate their “gravy train” of benefits and financial gains to serve and improve the quality of life of the constituents…they deceive…and carefully maintain the planet that ensures life…so callously taken for granted…

Where would human life be…if those humans who understand how life works…and valued life enough to bring about commemorative dates to remind us, didn’t?

Where would humanity be on the scale of change and progress?

Where would our planet be?

Is it too late for damage control?

Can we learn from the Past to advance into the future?

157 years is a grain of sand toward progress on the scale of human evolution…

The view of “intelligent life” doesn’t move much on that scale either…look at those elected who continue to restrict change and progress…

Freedom…

Believing it…is the first step in claiming it…

Freedom is not a man made commodity…

Freedom has always been a human right…

We are all children of God…

Children of the Universe…

We all have a right to be here…

Let Juneteenth be a reminder to humanity…

When one is enslaved…all are enslaved…

When we understand…connectivity…

When we understand freedom…

When freedom is no longer denied…

People and a Planet…will be free….

Diversity…

God created Diversity…

I can never imagine living in a “colorless” world…

Can you?

Man did not create humankind…

Man did not create Planet Earth…

Yet…every second of everyday…man discredits creation by attempting to make God over…in his image…

The intensity of hatred against God’s creations of diversity does not come from a place of love or light or truth…

Are you of God’s creation…or Man’s attempt at a “make over”?

Do you embrace diversity…or work at destroying it?

I cannot imagine a world of monochrome and whitewash…

Can you?

Diversity defines the beauty of the planet in the plant and animal kingdoms…

The beauty of humankind in all of its diversity of shapes…colors…and sizes…is breathtaking and awe inspiring!

God’s image is not man’s interpretation…

Free-will unleashed a dangerous byproduct…and cast a long shadow on selflessness…

Leading to the thoughtless acts of destruction and assaults on humankind’s diverse family of beings…whose diversity distinguishes them from the self-appointed who imagine themselves to be above God’s creation…

Take a good look at America…

In America…Diversity was “manufactured” and tampered with… and achieved by bloodshed…attempts of selective immigration…slavery…and “delusional superiority breeding hatred”… that continually feeds the quality of life we witness here…everyday.

Don’t fall prey to the delusion…of man creating…chaos.

God created Diversity…

God created the “Big Bang” that created the universe…which contains endless multiverses…life forms…and endless…

Diversity…

God Works…

God Works…

Over the weekend, I went to a craft and hobby store to purchase a few items… A woman was standing in front of some of the supplies I wanted to buy…I waited…she looked at me and continued to block the items…she reached up to take something down which caused her to take a few steps away, clearing the path to what I needed…I leaned in and took it from its hanger, and she looked at me and said, “Was I in your way? I’m always in someone’s way!  I do it on purpose!” I laughed.  She laughed, and then she asked if I sewed, because she was trying to get back into sewing, and was looking for a rotary cutter…

I was wearing a mask and she was not.  My choice. Her choice…

Somehow she started talking about Covid…How she had just gotten over a mild case of it…How she was vaxed and boosted, yet she still got infected…she went on to say that she didn’t wear a mask when she was out and about, however, she was required to wear a mask at work. 

I divulged that I was also vaxed and boosted and I still choose to wear a mask whenever I go out in public places, around people, especially indoors…I said it works for me… She quickly said, “No, they don’t, they are like a placebo, but whatever works for you.”  I said, “No matter, God works!”  She then said, “Yes.”

I continued, “I have tested negative, and I have never been sick.  I may have had it before it was ever identified, because I had a cold and a slight temperature in November of 2020…or not, I don’t know, yet I have never tested positive.  I will continue doing what works for me…and God works.”

I waited to get the vaccine…I believe that God protects His children…

I wasn’t going to get it.  However, I asked for guidance and I was given an answer in a dream…I was in a clinic and the nurse said she had a few vials of the Pfizer vaccine left, and another nurse asked me if I was going to get a shot…I awakened reflecting on the dream…

That afternoon, I had a facial appointment.  The woman working on my face said she had just gotten over Covid.  She was masked and I was not because she was working on my face…That afternoon, I scheduled a vaccine shot for the next day.  I knew then that getting the vaccine would let me know…the power of God.

And it has…God works…

I have never tested positive.  I gave myself a rapid test in early May and it was negative…and on May 31st, I had one administered at a testing center because I was going to have a medical procedure and I required a negative test to have it.  The test was negative.

I told this story because forces are always at work to deter one from following their feelings on what is right…for you…and those around you…The statement given by the woman in the store that masks don’t work are her opinion, and her experience…

So she doesn’t believe in mask protocol…however, she wears one to work, because she knows who butters her bread…and she obviously needs to have it buttered…However, she chooses to exercise not wearing one in public, otherwise…which again, is her choice, especially because protocols are disappearing or it is a matter of choice, (if you’re vaccinated, if not, it is recommended) or still required in the medical field, (which I totally am in agreement with, in the medical field).

We must think for ourselves and weigh and choose our options wisely…

We always have the choice to be our best selves…

Our best selves give us the opportunity to touch others in very unique and positive ways…

Consciously…and unconsciously…we touch lives…and we have the opportunity to elevate our own lives in the process…

I practice protocols…and will continue to practice protocols…until Covid becomes as simple and mild as a cold…

Until then…

God works…

God and Truth are constant…

Once the majority of Americans…and people around the world open up their hearts and minds to this reality…the best in everyone will become a priority…

And life will be elevated…

I believe…

Because…

God…Works.

It Is Time To Look Beyond…Ourselves…

It Is Time To Look Beyond…Ourselves…

Looking around us here in America and around the world…It is time to look beyond…ourselves.

If America is to survive, along with the rest of the world…it is time to understand where the key to survival lies…

When we are witnessing the chaos being created before our very eyes, it is clear and plain to see that it is coming from those chosen to represent the best ideals and options for those they swore to protect and serve…and we chose them…and we can change the program…by UN-choosing….

What does your heart and soul choose?

Watching the many choose ways and ideologies that are against the grain of love and goodwill is mind-blowing and shattering to the way of love…spiritual and religious teachings…Since when do true believers burn crosses to instill…practice and dispense hatred…and worship God, whose Son is written to have died on a cross?

Look into yourself…and look beyond yourself…Understand why it is time to look beyond…Understand why it is time to look beyond ourselves…

If we do not learn to look beyond ourselves…

There will be no “beyond” to look to…to sustain humanity…

That reality is fast approaching…

Those chosen to lead must be scrutinized and recognized…in truth…not delusion or illusion as to what they truly represent in the building or tearing down of America…and the world.

Racism…Hatred…Division…Lies…Partisanship…they are destroying America…

Let those who have eyes to see…and ears to hear…take heed.

Trump is NOT the answer…Trump was NEVER the answer…

Those in the Republican Party who continue to push old world conservatism Trumpism and the old “South” are not the answer…

McConnell…McCarthy…Manchin…Sinema…They are not the answer…

Democrats afraid to stand up for liberty and justice for all…are not the answer…

Presidents who are too caught up in politics of the past…are not the answer…

History keeps repeating itself because no one has the courage to initiate and follow through on the changes that will lead America to her zenith…

Whenever our country reaches a level of progress and light…it is taken backward decades…destroying any chance at reaching platforms of growth and heroic leadership in a world that cries out for enlightenment.

It is time…to look beyond…ourselves…

It…is…Time….

June 1, 2022…Repeat of May…

Here we go again….New month…same old stories…Do you ever think this hamster’s wheel will stop turning without gun control? Find the courage to oust those who continue to shame our country and murder our citizens because they refuse to see that people pull the trigger…guns don’t arm themselves and fire… We the people must unite and take charge of changing this landscape…

Without strong support…movement…and voting out the offenders and oppressors…the roulette wheel could find anyone before the barrel…no one is ever prepared to become a victim or a statistic…

Read the article…Save America from itself! The lives you save may be your own…and those you know….and those you love….

At least 4 people were killed in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, hospital campus shooting, police say

By Andy Rose and Christina Maxouris, CNN

Police: Shooting at Oklahoma hospital kills at least four

Police: Shooting at Oklahoma hospital kills at least four02:06

(CNN)At least four people were killed Wednesday in a shooting on a hospital campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, police said in a news conference Wednesday evening.

The gunman is also dead, police said. Authorities believe the shooter’s gunshot wound was self-inflicted, Tulsa Police Department Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish said in the news conference.

Several people were also wounded, though no one has life-threatening injuries, police Capt. Richard Meulenberg told CNN on Wednesday night.

Dispatchers received a call about an active shooter at the Natalie Medical Building, a physicians’ office building on the St. Francis Hospital campus, shortly after 4:50 p.m. local time, Dalgleish said.

Officers responded to the scene within minutes and made contact with victims and the suspect roughly five minutes later, Dalgleish said. The officers who arrived could hear shots inside the building, which directed them to the second floor, according to the deputy chief.

“The scene is fairly limited to one section of that floor, on the second floor,” Dalgleish said. At least part of the scene was in an orthopedic office on that floor, according to Dalgleish.

No officers were injured, he added.

Investigators are interviewing witnesses that were in the building, Dalgleish said. One witness was found locked in a closet, he said.

Police said they are “getting close” to identifying the suspect, who Dalgleish said had one rifle and one handgun with him. “It appears both weapons, at one point or another, were fired,” the deputy chief said.

Authorities were notifying the victims’ families Wednesday night, Meulenberg told CNN.

“It’s a horribly tragic event,” Meulenberg said. “I’m very, very proud of the officers for getting there as quickly as they did, very well potentially stopping more people from losing their life today.”

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum expressed “profound gratitude” for the first responders who “did not hesitate today to respond to this act of violence.”

“The men and women of the Tulsa Police Department did not hesitate,” the mayor said.

‘Just madness’

Earlier Wednesday, Meulenberg said authorities had to evacuate “multiple floors” of the building.

“It was just madness inside, with hundreds of rooms and hundreds of people trying to get out of the building,” Meulenberg told CNN Wednesday night.

There has been a reunification site set up for family members and friends at Memorial High School west of LaFortune Park, police added.

“There is nothing more this community could do for us than to pray for the families and the loved ones and the victims of this senseless act,” Cliff Robertson, the Saint Francis Health System CEO, said in the news conference.

President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting, a White House official said. The White House is closely monitoring the situation and has reached out to state and local officials to offer support.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also assisting on scene, the ATF Dallas Field Division said on Twitter.

“What happened today in Tulsa is a senseless act of violence and hatred,” Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt wrote on Twitter. “I am grateful for the quick and brave actions of the Tulsa Police Department and other first responders who did their best to contain a terrible situation.”

‘I just knew that it was a shooting’

Debra Proctor was in another building on the hospital campus for a doctor’s appointment when she heard police sirens ringing out.

When she stepped outside, first responders were lined up everywhere, she told CNN. Proctor, who has been a registered nurse for more than four decades, said it was a “shocking” scene.

“Police were everywhere in the parking lot, up and down the surrounding blocks,” Proctor said. “They were still arriving when I was leaving.”

Kalen Davis, a lifelong Tulsa resident, was waiting in traffic around 5 p.m. local time when she saw multiple police cars responding to the scene.

In a video she shared with CNN, authorities can be seen running toward a building with their guns drawn. Two officers are seen taking long guns out of their trunks as more emergency vehicles race to the scene.

“I just knew that it was a shooting situation because I saw police running with rifles,” Davis, 45, told CNN. “That’s when I got emotional.”

CNN’s Amanda Jackson, Kaitlin Collins and Sharif Paget contributed to this report.

May Sadness…

Hopeful beginnings and tragic endings marks the month of May…

Racism and the “Gun” still prevail…in the “Land of The Free…and The Home of The Brave.”

The freedom to take life…along with the “brave” defenders of the 2nd Amendment…

Those who embrace the gun, embrace death…nothing good can ever come from the “right to bear arms,” because those who live by the gun…will bring death and destruction…and will eventually die by the gun…especially when the gun has become an “idol.”

America is a nation that pushes violence…

America adopted the ways of the old and wild West…and has bought into the idea of guns for defense…soliciting and inventing ways to satiate the desire to use guns as the keen weapon of choice, to obliterate the object or objects who are a threat to their way of life…

The use of guns in America has distorted and devalued human life…and has given many offenders the opportunity to realize their wildest imaginings and thirsts for taking lives…giving countless citizens the license to kill. God bless those good ole boys and their 2nd amendment rights…

So much so, that we will continue to witness many more Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York occurrences in the very near future…Let us not forget those of the past…New Town, Connecticut…Charleston, South Carolina…unfortunately, there are others…

We must question the ethics and values…hearts and minds of those who are elected to “lead” America… Right now, these are the people who are responsible for the deaths of innocent children…Women…Men…and those who are victimized and wiped out…because of their diversity not belonging to the self-appointed “Face of America” in the minds of the “self-anointed.”

When will people learn the meaning of Humanity and Love?

Let’s hope in time to save the human race…

Let’s hope especially in time to save…America.

How will America welcome June, 2022?

June 1st will tell…

Can we make it from the month of June beginning to the end of the month…without any catastrophic tragedies committed by the ongoing sins of America blowing up on some section of the population?

Let’s enter the month of June with bated breath…

…And be the best that we can be to advance humanity…and pray that those who can bring turmoil…will find peace in their souls…to change their hearts…enough to resist violent recourse…

We are at the halfway mark of 2022…

We are all responsible for what comes next…

We elect…

We can deflect…

Bring in June with Change…

Start on The Hill…and work your way around your State…

Freedom does not oppress…

Bravery does not embrace political cowardice…

It isn’t Democrats vs. Republicans….

Look at the individual politicians and what they stand for….

That will fill in the story of America…

Hello, June……

Who’s Looking Back At You?

Who’s Looking Back At You?

Michael Jackson wrote a song that wasn’t just a song…it was a “call to consciousness”…

Isn’t it funny how we only want happy endings in our lives…and maybe some immediate others whom we consider “family”?…Or maybe just happy endings for that person reflected in the mirror?

Do we ever stop to really soak in the realization that we are a part of the chaos consuming the world…and if we would only see the bigger picture and change…we could be the puzzle piece that makes the world a better place?

Ask yourself a question…this question…

Why does one ever seek outside of themselves to know the truth of it all…when the truth lives within you?

The world is or isn’t because of the “truths” we accept without self-examination…

Would spiritual beings living a human experience…seek to destroy life?

Would spiritual beings living a human experience garner delight in performances of pure evil?

Would spiritual beings living a human experience continually create chaos…division…promote and practice hatred in every form imaginable…and beyond imagining to infect and spread such evil doctrines to stop love from flowering the planet…and the willing hearts of humanity who strive to keep love flowing?

When we allow ourselves to become lost in the chaos and madness…we become a part of the problem…not the solution…

Who’s looking back at you?

Who is that person you see in the mirror?

Selfish lover…or universal lover?

Spiritual Being…or savage interloper bent on destruction and a threat to love and peace everywhere?

Who’s looking back at you…can they change their ways?

Introduce yourself…

Then ask…that question…

Change is possible at any age or place in your life…

You are the answer…

You…know the truth.

Make that change…..
