We live in a world gone mad. A world that is calling wrong right, and right wrong.
A world where someone that is angry or disgruntled can take a gun and shoot as
many innocent people in their path as they possibly can, then turn the gun on themselves. Hurting not just themselves, but hurting and wounding families, tearing them apart and leaving them crushed in the wake of their selfish destruction.
A world where little children, girls and boys, can’t even walk around or play in their own neighborhoods anymore, for fear that some deginerate, some sexual preditor may grab them, take them away from the safety of their families and homes, abuse them, and then eventually, fatally wound them.
A world where our young people can’t even take a walk down the street or go to school safely, for fear that someone will mistake them for someone else, or even have an ought against them for some ridiculous and incomprehensable reason, and gang jump them with 7, 8, 9 or even 15 people, or shot them, and leave us with 1 more fatality. A world where a child can’t even go to the store for a bag of skittles without being accused of being a thug and a robber, and then getting shot in the chest by a vigilante wanna be, and being left for dead in the streets. Another potential leader, a great mind or a prophetic destiny left unfulfilled, now resting in the grave, prematurely. A world where teddy bears and balloons and flowers are strung up around trees and light post; signifing the loss of a dearly beloved one. No matter what they’ve done. Good or bad. Right or wrong. We still honor them. We still celebrate them. Why?
A world where our women, young and old, fear everyday, not just for their lives, but for their bodies being brutally used and abused against their wills. The perpertrator not seeming to understand the meaing of the word “No.” And if the perpertrator is not caught, the burden of proof lies on her whether she is tellling the truth or not about being sexually assualted. Especially if they were on a date at the time. Gone are the days of carefree shopping at the mall. Lunch, or dinner and a movie in the safety and company of friends. Women are now instructed to take someone, preferably a young man, with them when they go out. Especially at night. Fear.
A world where if you catch someone coming out of your house, after robbing you, and you shoot them, you are the one that can be arrested. You are the one who will be charged as a criminal, and you are the one who will go to jail. With the possibility that you can be sued for shooting them, for robbing YOU. Wow!!!
A world where even though you are found guilty of a crime, you still experience the luxery’s of 3 square meals a day, televison, internet, weight lifting, libraries and are able to get an honest to goodness real diploma, associates, bachelor’s, and even masters degree in whatever field of study that you choose, on tax payer dollars. But the law violates the constitutional rights of a convicted felon, if it does not give them a punishment that is NOT cruel or unusual. The right of access to parole. And the right NOT to be discriminated against. They MUST be treated humanely. Wow!
A world where we think, that if we turn and look the other way, perhaps all this, everything will go away. It will change. It will get better, and then, we won’t have to deal with the reality of what we’ve come to as a society. We live in the most blessed Nation on the planet. We live in the most democratic society or regiems in the world. And this great Nation was founded on a principle; that “In God, We Trust.” Hmmm.
So here is the question,
Is it a possibility that we have been given too many freedoms? Is it possible that in this “Land of The Free and Home of The Brave,” that we have begun to take our many freedoms for granted? Are many people abusing their “Freedoms, and do you think that maybe just perhaps, some of those freedoms should be revoked?” How, if at all possible, can we re-capture what we’ve lost as a Nation in trying to please and apease the masses, with so many Freedoms, and re-gain control of the criminal elements in our society? How can we get back to our founding principle?
Or, can we?
Now, let us hear what you have to say.
