Until we can understand violence is not normal and we continue to dismiss black-on-black murder we will lose many valued souls. In the nation’s capital, around where I live many people go to bed every night with the sound of gunshots ringing in their ears, afraid to let their children come out and play. Elderly people cannot go sit on their porch for fear of being killed like Mrs. Lucas Silence will not help this. Black People have two terrible problems. Them and Us and until we solve both we be merely surviving and not thriving.

COVID Corona virus and faith on God

How to travel: Put on your whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day..having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having the preparation of peace, and take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Now go on your way, take normal precautions, but Go in faith and not fear, (Ephesians 6: 10-17 )

President Trump has made a series of questionable statements about the threat from coronavirus.Credit...T.J. Kirkpatrick for The New York Times

Trump has suggested that it might be alright for people with the virus to go to work, while the Centers for Disease Control and other public health agencies have cautioned people who believe they are infected to stay at home. While Trump downplays the virus and blames President Obama, the experts say the coronavirus seems more deadly than most strains of the flu, and while there are widely available treatments and vaccines for the flu, none are ready yet and it could take a year or long for a coronavirus vaccine.

Get out and vote

Roadblocks were set up for us and we thought we would never see our parents again. We did make it, but many blacks and whites died fighting for that right to vote. So when I hear blacks say they are not going to vote, I hope they know that right was paid for in blood. To squander it or not use it gives that power to those who want to destroy us. And silence also speaks, one of the worst crimes of all when the good people do nothing.

Biden for President

Bernie is not even a Democrat, doesn’t have the history Biden does in supporting the causes of people of color and is talking about Medicare for all which instead of building on Obamacare would take some of the best provisions away . Whichever of the guys win it, I hope one picks Elizabeth Warren as v.p,. She is smart and tough enough to beat Trump, but sexism will prevent this. So what if Bernie does win the nomination, I will be calling on everyone to support him and just hold my breath and just pray that I was wrong about Bernie not being able to beat Trump.
