In response to what is currently happening in the world today due to the terrible wrongdoing of the cops who killed/assisted in killing George Floyd; This is a horrific thing that actually happens everyday all over the world for just the color of our skin, the beliefs we have and from the freedom of our speech. To those this happens to, it goes against our freedoms which were written into our laws for a reason.

So many of us have not let go of our past that our ancestors made for us. For me, I am a white person, but yet I feel utterly bad for what the white people did to the blacks just because they had different skin and at the time had a different language so they couldn't defend themselves very well. I have never been able to look a black person in the eye because of this guilt my ancestors has put on us. I have respect for those black people that have made it in this world and made something good of themsleves in the right ways, even if it was more difficult just because of the color of their skin. I have great respect for all races in this way.

On the other hand, I have great disrespect for anyone of any race to go against the laws to have their own way. This includes those who deal in illegal drugs, weapons, etc, etc. just to make money in their lives. I have even greater disrespect for those who abuse or kill other people or even animals just because they feel like it or in the moment they believe it's the right thing to do. I believe those who do wrong against the law should be punished according to what the crime was no matter how big or small it was.

This does not mean I will go out breaking the law myself to somehow stupidly show everyone revenge for someone else's wrongdoing. This includes rioting the businesses, looting/stealing, or even killing others. People are trying to make this specifically "Black Lives Matter", but in reality "Every Life Matters". Until people can look past the races and see people for who they really are on the inside, this world will never heal. IMO, this world is too far gone to truly heal from it all. In reality, the slavery has only been over for less than 200 years. I believe in learning from history and mistakes to make the world better and not continuing or bringing history back into effect. We should all be turning to the Lord and asking for strength and guidance in our lives throughout these times and everyday instead of taking matters into our own hands.

Please everyone take care.
