LET'S GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM!
Treasured by God!
I think, that means this is my opinion, so we are clear. It's time to take a breath and focus. Emotions are running high. Lives and businesses are being lost and let's be clear there are many factions at work here. Some really want change, some want blame, and others want civil unrest because it furthers their long term agenda - destroying America, destroying credibility, and destroying any hope of unity, to name a few things.
Protest - YES
Riot - NO
Destruction of property - NO
Killing others needlessly, which is why the protests began - NO! NO! NO!
Keep in mind it's not the same group doing the destruction and killing. Peaceful protests can be infiltrated by those using it as a springboard for their underhanded agenda! The media's portrayal of what is going on does not help at all because they are part of the problem! They want to paralyze us with fear and keep hatred alive!
Protesters and rioters are not synonymous!
Another agenda is to diminish the purpose of the protests and to create a picture that brings out fear instead of conversations, understanding, and change. It also reinforces the negative picture some already have. It destroys hope!
Let's all take a breath and get to the root of the problem. Let's ask who is gaining what by how this is unfolding and being reported. Why are peaceful protests being hijacked by rioters and looters? The rioters and looters are not part of the protesters. They are part of the problem and are taking away from, tarnishing, the message of, the protesters. They are causing the message of the protests to be diluted, diminished, and ultimately destroyed because they've changed the focus.
My heart breaks for the destruction and murders going on. Yes, anyone killed during these riots has been senselessly, needlessly, murdered and that has to stop. These people need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
So let's pause to breathe, evaluate, and pray. Let's choose not to be pawns or manipulated by outside forces or agendas. Let's choose to make our voices heard, not silenced. How you do what you do is important to how it is received. If you want people to understand speak the language of understanding. Fear is not the language of understanding or change!
Be Encouraged! ❤
