Just Another Day?

Today is Sunday. It is calmer than yesterday but activities go on as well they should. What difference is made by naming a 24 hour period from another. In the universe everything goes on as naturally as ordered by the divine creator. The sun sits in its place and the planets, those that we know and those that we do not know continue to go around the sun in the fashion and order or disorder that nature prescribes. Here on earth, more precisely, in North America, we grapple with what is described as senseless carnage to often occurring in our schools, cutting short and wasting the potentials of many children.

Then there is the siren song of “our thoughts and prayers are with the grieving families” a sentiment that has begun to ring very hollow; very empty — like the barrel that general Kelly talked about.

The sad default of mental illness to describe planned and determined destruction of innocent lives in places that are deemed to be safe. We begin to realize that no place is safe and no number of armed individuals have so far hindered the carnage that marks the places where children of different ages and cultures and hues meet to prepare themselves for a chaotic world.

It’s puzzling that weapons of mass destruction are easily obtained in places that boast of safety; places that are thought to be the best and most humane. Yet, no other place on earth has had this kind of destruction.

When will we awake to the senselessness of those with the authority to bring about change but who continually refuse to do so. Instead, they set the state for more of the same– more of the same (here’s the word again) carnage. These men and women who are in seats of authority who permit this destruction will reap what they so callously sow. But, there is time to make a change. Will they make that change or will they go back to the proverbial hat to pull out the rabbit of “our thoughts and prayers are with the victims”. What would they say, if they were the victims? I wonder, what would they say?

 

Spend some time reading my best selling book. It may help.

A Time For Teaching

This month, Black History month, is a time for teaching. It’s a time set apart, as we know, to celebrate, to reflect, to honour, and to move into destiny. Every part of the story that was hidden, suppressed, or deliberately left out of the collection of books about the life and work of the first creation must be told to the descendants.

Whatever the original intention, the life and work of Black people cannot be destroyed; no, it cannot be forgotten. It cannot be forgotten, for much of life reflects the genius of this people. Much of life moved forward because of their discoveries and entrepreneurship.

It  is important to tell the descendants of the first people of their strategic place in life, for that is the key to their emancipation from the continued work of those who are bent on keeping them less than who they are. They need to know the greatness of their capacities and the innate ability to do the things that move creation forward.

Our boys must be reminded of how smart they are. They must be reminded of the accomplishments of those that have gone before them, those who are still here and they must be given opportunities to put forth their ideas into the areas of developing and constructing solutions and cures for the bold challenges of our time. It will take the genius of our people to replicate and initiate solutions that the future demands.

Look at a child’s face as it lights up with the knowledge that he is smart, and great, and able! So, tell them just that, because they really are. Find the positive things that they need to hear and tell them daily; in the morning, at noontime and in the evening. Saturate their minds with the information that will awaken their genius and in the end, our world will be better for it. Take this time for teaching seriously and teach our children the greatness of their history, their present, and their future.

Abolishing Harmful Discrimination

With the move to provide bathroom facilities that support the sensitivities of all its students, school boards are demonstrating an understanding of the complexities of the human soul. The fact that this is happening now is a testament to the liberating ideas of men and women who see the need to bring all human beings under the protection of social acceptance.

For too long we have allowed beliefs of various sorts to push us along a path that caused discomfort and at times unbearable physical and mental anguish for many fellow human beings. A lack of understanding human behaviour; why some people are they way they are, can no longer be a reason to push anyone beyond the acceptable bounds of social acceptance.

It is not just a matter of acceptance or tolerance. After all, acceptance and tolerance of others clearly suggest the notion that George Orwell talked about so long ago; some pigs are more equal than other pigs. Well, that is not so and it is refreshing to know that actions have been taken to dispel that archaic notion of even one human being that is different from what many feel is acceptable.

As colleges, universities, and other institutions bravely move to bring about justice, let people everywhere join the movement to abolish the toxins that feed harmful discrimination of every kind.
