“Confidence is the bridge between where you are and where you want to go. Don’t be casual about your
confidence or you will become a casualty on the road to your destiny.” – Dr. Keith Johnson
George Flyod’s Father yells out to a crowd addressing the rioters saying, “What are you all doing??? I am not rioting and blowing things up. Why are you.?”
Protest are about the masses demand for REAL change. They are ignited by problems and injustices. However, historically they fizzle out and make no real lasting change in the end when you don’t have any kind of real leadership, a strategic plan, no standard for peaceful demonstration and most importantly a specific demand for policy changes.
Nobody has all the answers but let’s start proposing some so this moment in time won’t be waisted and we all can have confidence for a real change.
What are some steps we can take?
Step 1 – Examine your own heart and mind. Do you think one race is better than another? God shows no partiality. He sees and loves us all as equal. Do you place “general judgments” on certain ethnic groups? Such as “All ________ are _________.” Let the change begin in you.
Step 2 – Study history. If you are shocked by this and this is a new problem for you, study history. Or go and sit with a black senior citizen and ask them to share their story.
Step 3 – Use your voice to share your feelings and ideas.
Step 4 – Expand your conversations with people who are different and think different than you, and do something to show concern, love and care for God’s children.
Step 5 – Do not spread hate and violence but rather be a FORCE for love, kindness, openness, honor and respect.
Step 6 – Vote.
Step 7 – Be a role model of CHANGE.
MOVING FORWARD STRATEGY
Immediately charge and imprison the other 3 officers who aided the killing of George Floyd.
Pass new police brutality laws in all 50 states.
Reform criminal justice laws to end the discrimination of mass incarceration.
Teach peace, acceptance, difference, anger management, and emotional intelligence in all schools.
VOTE – Local and National.
