I am so sorry for my recent neglect to the blog. I have been busy with my family loving summertime and working. I have missed the opportunity to pour out what’s on my mind and my heart. It continues to become more evident that our country is in a state of insecurity. We had lines running outside the emergency room door the other day and I am pretty sure it has something to do with people feeling insecure with the more recent violent events in our country. One of our most basic needs is safety and people can become more unstable and unpredictable as they feel decreased personal safety. I do not agree that the media is the most powerful entity on earth but I do believe that it is playing a large part along with social media in creating fear and perpetuating violence. “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” -Malcom X. I think that it is up to every individual to live with integrity and love. Fear is an illusion that keeps people from understanding that we are all connected. Fear drives us apart and fear can unite us. I HOPE that our country will become more united by these events instead of growing further apart. There is a greater plan.
