I don’t know how we combat the minds of those without the comprehension and ability to feel the pain and suffering of others. These protests and demonstrations are a result of this unanswered question.
At the same time, I know that racism isn’t something you are born with – it is something you are taught.
If you can grasp this, imagine walking around in the world feeling as if you will be condemned for something you haven’t done. Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t imagine how my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ must have felt when he was enduring this struggle.
This is the way I feel these human beings protesting are feeling at this moment and time. I thank God that I work with and have been blessed by Godly, Christian-hearted brothers and sisters that feel and acknowledge the pain of those protesting.
The FWPD is being considerate of the frustrations our community is feeling. I communicate with these men and women (PD and Sheriff Departments) all the time. There are a lot of good officers within these departments and, unfortunately, those good actions are tainted by the unrighteous acts of a few. These are also the officers that respond to my every call without hesitation.
Just like the COVID-19 front-line personnel, I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you for being on the front line of this pandemic of inequality acts. Though inequality is not a virus, it is a sickness – a sickness that has the potential to affect so many.
Thanks for the support that you and your families are exhibiting for the righteousness and equity for so many. I hope I speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.
