I rarely post personal thoughts.
That being said, going home to visit family at Thanksgiving is a double trip as we visit my family, in Southern Indiana, and my husband’s family in Southern Illinois, (miles from Furgeson).
I don’t have an agenda with this post other than to say…
Violence is Violence!
I am passionate about Civil Rights.
I was raised by an AWESOME MOTHER who taught her children this important lesson, which I live by:
NO ONE is better than me, and I am NO BETTER than any one else
Period! All said in that one sentence!
Walking in protests as a kid with my Mom for equal rights in the 1960’s, I learned two very important things:
Police are very well-trained in restraining unarmed people.
I also learned what Peaceful Demonstrations are.
However, Violence is Violence!
I’m praying for all involved that we keep in mind the lessons we learned in the 1960’s.
Also, I know we are in the 21st Century, and MONEY, as always, speaks volumes…
Don’t be fooled, if you BOYCOTT by not shopping, your voice and message will be heard.
I’m with my family today, we are watching on television the hordes of people shopping and the protesting miles away from our door step.
Time to turn off our televisions and computers and be with the people we love.
My prayers are with you my friends,
and I wish you…
Lots of Love,
