This…Is…Independence…

Let Freedom Ring…by lifting up our voices…and joining in unity to unite a country founded for freedom…

Let Freedom Ring…by taking to the streets and protesting…that Black Lives Matter…indefinitely…

Let Freedom Ring…by standing up against Racism…Racial Disparity…Racial Injustice…Discrimination…with heart…soul…and conviction…

Let Freedom Ring…Challenge and dissolve Hatred with Love…Go toe-to-toe to pulverize and sweep Prejudice…into oblivion…

Let Freedom Ring…Do away with the Elephantine Dissidents…and their leader who crashed the Oval Office…by Voting Them All Out…come November 2020…

Let Freedom Ring…Be vigilant and protective of yourself and others in practicing social distancing and wearing face masks during this worldwide, new plague… named Covid-19…here to rob you of your freedom…and perhaps…take your life…

This…Is…Independence!

This is the Proclamation…The Declaration of Independence is just the tip of the iceberg…

Independence is the fact or state of being independent…Independent means being free from outside control not depending on another’s authority… question all sources that strive to take away  freedom…from inside country…or outside of the country.  The price of sacrificing independence is too great to sit back in blank acceptance of any challenge against the right of independence…and freedom.

Always choose to fight the good fight…This …Is…Independence!

July 4th, 1776, established a way of life…a way of freedom…a way of independence…meant for every man, woman and child, living in America…Look deeper into its meaning…it was deeper than just fighting the British for independence…

Remember your honor…remember your freedom…A high price was paid…and is still being paid…for Independence…

Don’t throw it away…

Happy 4th of July…America.

Juneteenth…

“Juneteenth” is described as  “a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States… Celebrated annually on the 19th of June throughout the United States.

The significance…Emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy…

Juneteenth is also know as Freedom Day…Jubilee Day…Liberation Day…Emancipation Day…

Freedom means having the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance…

Jubilee is a special anniversary of an event, especially one celebrating twenty-five or fifty years of a reign or activity…

Liberation is the act of setting someone free from imprisonment, slavery, or oppression; release…

Emancipation is the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation…

Today, I’m thinking about the 1,653 Black people who died at the hands of police in America between 2014 and 2019, just to pull up the numbers…however, these killings including those by private citizens who are not of color…have been going on since Slavery began in America… 2020 has continued the horrific practice of taking Black lives…

Today, I’m thinking about Rayshard Brooks, 27…George Floyd, 46…Breonna Taylor, 26…Atatiana Jefferson, 28…Aura Rosser, 40…Stephon Clark, 22…Botham Jean, 26…Philando Castille, 32…Alton Sterling, 37…Michelle Cusseaux, 50…Freddie Gray, 25…Janisha Fonville, 20…Eric Garner, 43…Akai Gurley, 28…Gabriella, Nevarez, 22…Tamir Rice, 12…Michael Brown, Jr., 18…Tanisha Anderson, 37…Robert Fuller, 24…Malcolm Harsch, 38…Ahmaud Arbery, 25…Now Google and Wikipedia pages outlining the details of lives cut short for being Black…in America…

Juneteenth…Maybe someone forgot to tell those who took their lives…that they were free…that they were liberated…that they were emancipated…about three centuries ago…

Let us celebrate Juneteenth today…Praying…that one day, in the very, very near future…we can celebrate the true meaning of Juneteenth.

Reignite The Dream…

untitled (17)

Can we reignite the dream? Today was a celebration of the man who had a dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was assassinated in his quest to realize a dream of equality for Americans of African descent by peacefully removing the manacles and chains of segregation and discrimination.

How many decades backward have we traveled with the present pachyderm infestation immobilizing our country?

We must Reignite The Dream…

Today, Martin Luther King, Jr. must become more than just a celebration and memorial dedicated to a third Monday in January… it must become a day of continued movement in the realization of his dream, and a new freedom march in reclaiming and rebuilding a country with a stronger foundation built on, and living the words of “Liberty and Justice for all.”

We must Reignite The Dream…

Martin Luther King Jr. stood for Equality…and he was a man of integrity…

Kellyanne Conway… Martin Luther King, Jr. would have stood up for Trump’s Impeachment… You didn’t know him at all…Read his “I Have A Dream” speech…the time for enlightenment is ever-present…

We will Reignite The Dream….

To those who have ears to hear and eyes to see…March On, Reignite The Dream!!!

Does America Deserve Trump?

When evil doings are allowed to prevail over truth, assisted with the full cooperation of our governmental systems, not only has our systems failed, along with them exit sovereign integrity everywhere.

The exchanges made to uphold tangible objects over morality have damned humanity forever…

America was envisioned as a place free from persecution, oppression, prejudices of any kind, discrimination, religious restriction, and proclaimed a land of second chances for those who went askew of the laws in their native lands, and a land of opportunity with the fulfillment of dreams to all who sought a new life upon entering her shores…

Equality. Liberty. Freedom…at last. Not so…not so!

Lest we call near extermination and Reservation encampment of our Native American brothers and sisters, equality, liberty, and freedom…still denying their rights to their land by authorizing the encroaching  pipelines, without a thought to their survival, health or welfare…

Equality…liberty…freedom…is that what we call the enslavement, gratuitous lynching, legalized genocide, continued denial of Civil and Human Rights to our Black American brothers and sisters, and their enslaved African Ancestors, brought here from their country, in chains?! We did not learn from the Holocaust of Nazi Germany?! Another has risen and been in continuous operation…because of “difference of appearance” among the status quo…

How do we account for the mistrust of Japanese Americans, who came to and settled in America to have their dreams of equality, liberty and freedom realized? Their loyalties were recognized by placing over 100,000 in internment camps…stripped of their dignity and the lives they built for themselves, here…due to Japan’s actions in WWII…The operative word completely overlooked…”Americans.” Japanese by heritage…yet, Americans!

Executive order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, changed lives forever… Sixty-two percent of the internees were American citizens.

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act, which apologized for the internment and authorized a $20,000 payment to every surviving internee… it was admitted that the government actions were based on “race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership.”

This travesty began February 19, 1942…lasting until March 20, 1946…

February is Black History Month…

Emmett Till…Trayvon Martin…Michael Brown Jr. …Tamir Rice…Sandra Bland… and the endless stream of men, women and children  who have become a part of Black History… because race prejudice is still alive and ongoing in the “land of the free.”

Does America deserve Trump?

“Number 45” has demonstrated an all too familiar pattern with his Republican constituents and cabinet picks who embody the tradition of “race prejudice, war hysteria and failure of political leadership.”   Let’s also add “devoid of any political leadership or political leadership skills.”

It is one thing to change the political face of a governing party…what we are witnessing are the deep seeded roots of dysfunctionalism and destruction born out of hatred, insecurities, greed and a quest for power so intense, that the “Republican Regime” is willing to sink a nation and further induce chaos in a world that is on the brink of exploding…

We must rise above the pettiness…we must look at our past…we must remember…we must not be complicit and turn a blind eye to the “elephants” trampling our liberties and our freedom…we must defend our brothers and sisters under siege…Look in the mirror…they are us, and we are them…they are our family…they are our children…they are human beings…we are humanity first, and Americans, second.

Without our humanity…there are no Americans…without humanity, there are no Canadians…British…French…Italians…Danish…Egyptians….Irish…Africans…All continents would perish…

Somewhere…somehow, we have managed to have enough love to keep us here…somewhere…somehow…we must find enough love to save what makes us beautiful and worth saving to those who have already given their lives before us…who have left their dreams behind for us to maintain…and protect to longevity.

The greatness of America is in the diversity of her people… the richness of America is reflected in the collective contributions of her immigrant population and Native American infusion.

Does America deserve Trump and the Republican Regime?

Let us not sink into darkness by allowing the worst of us to convince us that we must take the road back to antiquity….

RESIST.

A Day It Was!

Girlwithflag

It was a day today! Yes it was…I wonder if we will every get back to a space and place in time when the spirit is calm and the heart is willing.  We have lost the real meaning of self.  It is not to be “selfish” it is to be “selfless.”

How can we preserve what is good about humanity if the savage beast continues to rage within? What a day it was, when freedom meant something more than seven letters in a word.

Everyday in America someone wins…and someone loses…and it is usually the person who cares the most and has the most to lose…it isn’t money or possessions…it’s “self.”

Can we save the “soul of self?”

A day it was when we could sleep without a care….

a day
