Thoughts and Thank You’s: George Floyd and Injustices toward Black Lives

I have to state that the murder of Mr. George Floyd at the hand of Minneapolis Police Officers a little over a week ago is some wicked crap, and unfortunately, senseless, hateful acts like this toward the black community have been too common not only in my lifetime, but throughout American history.  

I am pissed at the injustices and killings of black men and women, boys and girls, that continue to take place at the hand of the very people/department/agency, that is sworn to serve and protect them (us) – This is some whack stuff!

Honestly, I have not had to rebuke so many cuss words within my mind, then I have over this past week. My emotions are all over the place, but I thank the Lord for helping me to get them together.

Although I still cannot wholly articulate my thoughts and feelings, I did want to take a moment and thank all of the individuals within my feed, and across social media platforms as a whole, that have been sharing information regarding the unjustifiable death of Mr. George Floyd, and the movement that is taking place as a result.

Thank you for also sharing information on how individuals can help, whether by protesting, donating supplies and goods, or just their time.

Last, but definitely not least, I want to give a shout out to all of the prayer intercessors. Please do not discount the mighty task you are doing behind the scenes. Prayer is a powerful tool – I know it to be true.

Like many others, I am continuing to pray for justice, healing, and a supernatural movement/shift in this nation, on behalf of Black lives, that are so easily discounted daily, globally.

Please stay encouraged, and a side-note, do not forget to register to vote. The true leadership skills, or lack of, of elected government officials are being shown during this time. Please take notice…

I am someone who knows and accepts that I DO NOT know it all. There's always room to grow! Happy to try and encourage others, as I encourage myself. We can make it through together! :)
