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….

Tomorrow Is Today…and Everyday Hereafter…

Tomorrow Is Today…and Everyday Hereafter…

Thoughts on Juneteenth were going to be held until the following day…and thoughts and reflections continued on to the next day…and the next, which is today…however, the thoughts and reflections continue…

Juneteenth…Emancipation of enslaved African Americans…

The biggest problem with holidays are they are “celebrated” for one day and then they disappear into oblivion…until the next year.  The events that constitute the creation of holidays in the first place should never be forgotten…ever! Whatever wrongs were committed should always be in the forefront of every celebrant’s mind…thoughts…words…and deeds as not to repeat the travesties and horrific events of history ever again…We cannot become better as human beings or humanity if we do not constantly work on eliminating the worst of ourselves in how we relate to one another and the life around us.

It has been only 156 years since the Emancipation Proclamation of 1865…The Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment cannot erase over 400 years of Slavery here in the United States, or the inhumanity visited upon those enslaved or their ancestors who continue to be treated with great atrocities to this day, inclusive of murders, lynching, inequality of economic prosperity, the destroying of communities and generational economic wealth, in dollars and land, also in theft and outright taking it away without accountability or protection from the government…Massacre after massacre…after massacre continually committed against Americans of African ancestry…always excusing such horrific behaviors away with “White Privilege” which is nothing more than evil with a free pass encompassed by fear possessed inferiority, and it extends itself to anyone perceived as a threat that does not look like the “norm of acceptability.”

It is not “color” that dictates the viability and superiority of any person… Superiority is a tool that is used to deflect inferiority…Those who possess souls do not wish to destroy life…or oppress the lives of others…to do so is to destroy and oppress the life which is their own…

Accountability to right horrific wrongs is generational…Racism is ended or continued with each successive generation…What is committed by one generation can be ended and made right by the next…instead of passing it off as not an offense created by the incoming generation…it continues to be an offense on each new generation…until someone stands up to realize that to keep putting the worst foot forward in denial continues to poison the well and stagnate any progress of humanity’s progression beyond the fate of the Dinosaurs….

Tomorrow is today…and everyday hereafter…

Bringing the complexities of Racism into the light of day will continue everyday hereafter because it is long past time to right the wrongs of this country’s “Original Sin.”

Thoughts will continue on Juneteenth and the aftermath of what continues to emerge as consequences to holding onto and practicing Racism here in America.

The politics of this country are not only entrenched in retaining economic power…they are fueled by Racism and exclusivity…and it is choking the life out of America…

Tomorrow is Today…and everyday hereafter deprives us of longevity…because of the refusal to let Freedom ring….  

a day
