A Community That Cares

Summer 2017 has been a season of ups and downs in The United States.  People are showing their true colors. Some good and some bad.  One thing’s for sure, it’s time to come together as a community. Work towards the greater good.  How about becoming a community that cares again.

The Problem

The rest of the world is watching and above all, God is watching.  Whether you believe this or not, that’s your opinion. With that said, this is my blog, and this is my opinion.

The situations in Charlottesville, VA and Houston, TX should be a wake-up call to anyone who is still sleep.  Negativity is not going to get anyone, anywhere. Whole communities are divided behind color, race, religion, and money.  It’s sickening!  What happened to loving thy neighbor?  What happened to sharing with one another?  What happened to simply being thankful for life?

People are literally losing their lives from one minute to the next. But we would rather argue about statues, marches, churches and money. None of that will solve a thing if our hearts are not in the right place.

Honestly, it’s hard for me to watch the news.  To scroll through my Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook feeds. Bad energy is no good for me or anyone else. People are arguing over internet and face to face instead of looking at the bigger picture.  If we don’t start looking within our own hearts, and make changes to become better human beings, nothing will ever change!

What can you do?

It’s time to work on looking within. Pray, mediate, read, and show yourself and others compassion.  When we take better care of ourselves we can than begin taking better care of others.  With so much caring going on, we may actually become a community that cares again!  When I say community, it could mean a group of neighbors, friends, family, school, co-workers, or even the natural hair community.  I’m down to at least try.  How about you?

So, until next time folks, Peace out!
