Rather than post a poem or a couple of photographs as I would normally do, I wanted to address a topic that The Media appears to put as number one focus. Not that of Hunger, starvation, nor that of Unjust War Or any form of War, because what war is just. Neither is it this COVID 19 that spread throughout the Globe, and it is not anything to do with a Cure for any of the countless diseases that curse mankind. BUT that of BLACK LIVES MATTER.
This whole debacle that occurred in recent times has been covered by Media throughout the Globe, possibly in an effort to rid the Globe of Racial prejudice. I suspect for many media it has more to do with selling their content than addressing an issue at hand. Or for some it has more to do with hammering a Leader of State.
Therefore where does one begin? The reasoning that the Media use for their stories will always be theirs to deal with. I cannot change anyone’s mind in any issue, even if I wanted to. That has to come from the person who listens or reads my opinions. Society today has a growing Liberalized mentality where official standards say that ” all are entitled to their View” But only one view will be right and that is “OUR ” view. There is a refusal at times in society to permit an alternative view to our own to even be heard. Regardless of whether one is Liberal, Conservative, Socialist or Communist It should not matter. This statement in itself may cause people to disagree, But What matters in this World is HOW we Deal with each other. How we deal with the differences we discover in each other.
Do we allow ourselves to be driven by the opinion of Media? Or do we form our opinions on what lies within us and about us in society? Media in this age are striving to form the opinions of those who read their publications. We as people are formed in our opinions through such mediums as Movies, Music and Literature to name but a few. The Views of Person B may never agree with My views nor will the Views of Person A agree with Person C. Such is the way of things that we are programmed to believe.
I cannot change anyone’s opinion on any topic. BUT I can state what I believe, I can and will also respect the beliefs of others even if that belief would be despised by other views. I am a Christian, a Bible believing, and one could almost say a card holding believer. I am in Fact a Christian , One who Believes in Christ Jesus . I dedicated my life to Him and such a Faith as it were. BUT I cannot nor will I Cause insult on anyone who believes in something else. I cannot nor will I willingly insult the Faith of others or their Chosen Religion. BUT the way of society for so long for many of us is to Despise that which is alien to our beliefs.
The same happens when it comes to race, the Color or appearance of our skin etc. If one were to read a Book, does one go merely because the cover looks pretty? Or does one avoid reading a certain book because it has the wrong color? If I were to distribute a Book to a number of people and cover that same book in a variety of colors. Does that or in fact Would that dictate how we accept what the Book tells us within its covers? Surely it is what lies within its covers that matters most. as a writer It is the content of the writing that matters rather than its cover.. This is my means of saying it does NOT MATTER what color a person may be, it does not matter what Race they are, nor their religious OR Political beliefs. I do not not will I willingly try to Judge a person on anything else But what lies within. What is the content of your life’s story? If your life was a Novel, or a piece of poetry or a Photograph. What does it tell? I would hope that mine does not Judge on Color, mine will not say one skin color over another.
BUT Mine would most likely say ALL LIVES MATTER. NOT BLACK OR WHITE OR ANOTHER COLOR. BUT ALL LIVES MATTER.
How we live our lives will be the reading of our Life’s Novel. Therefore do you permit your life , your Novel to be dictated by others? I try to live my life as I believe to be correct and according to The Bible as I see it. If that goes against the views of others then so be it.. BUT I can never stand and hail one race or one skin color above another.
I learn and adjust my views when I see that I have been wrong. Surely that is a decent way to go by.
That is all for now, Until next time, Stay Safe..
