HartRamsey’s UPLIFT: Growth is personal. U can’t “grow up” for someone else. So don’t let another person’s immaturity arrest ur own development.
With all that’s going on I feel that it’s time that I express my views on the non indictment of Darren Wilson from the Ferguson, Missouri police department for the unlawful killing of Michael Brown Jr. First of all, I want to say that we need more prayer in Ferguson and less violence. As a Christian my bible tells me that vengeance is the Lord’s. Deuteronomy 32:35 And again the apostle Paul says it in Romans 12:19.
My dear friends I feel that we need to educate ourselves (knowledge is power) . The situation that is occurring is nothing new!! Cops killing young black males has been happening for generations, but after all the heartache and pain, everyone always resort back to the same-ol’ same-ol’ and we don’t learn from it and that can’t keep happening.
So I’m urging everybody to start voting whenever there is an election. Start protesting peacefully wherever injustices are being committed . Go to college, run for public office, serve in your community and on jury duty. Be apart of the judicial process, then maybe we can be in that prosecutor’s seat or on that grand jury next time something like this happens, And that’s how you create change God Bless.
The bible says: My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:19-20 NIV)
I remind you of that to say this. Do not block what God’s trying to do in your life. By get angry and casting out the very person that God is trying to us to bless your live. That one person you end up cursing out may be the very person that has the answers to move your life to the next level. And how will you get those answers if you can’t talk to that person because you insulted that person. Over something that was a miner misunderstanding between the two of you. If you can keep a cool head when others get angry at you. You will end up reaping the benefits because that person you are angry with. Can very well end up being the person that God will use to bless your life. So my question is how will you receive that blessing if you are angry at that person? I can give you the answer You Don’t.
