SOMETHING TO PONDER...

 
 There's too much racism, hatred and violence in today's society and it should not be so. A person's skin color, natural appearance, religion, and or sexual origin should not determine whether or not that person should be allowed to live freely here on this planet called, Earth.

We all have certain things in common as human beings...We have to breathe in oxygen into our lun...gs and exhale carbon dioxide, we have to eat, sleep, bathe, release waste products from our natural bodies, no matter what size of our body mass may be; and the color of skin cannot change that reality. 

Instead of pulling one another down because of ignorance, hatred, bigotry, selfishness, greed, and misplaced affections...we should be encouraging one another, loving one another, and giving respect as much as we ourselves will demand to be respected.

We should love and raise our children righteously, honor our parents, support the meek and the elderly; and show compassion towards those who are less fortunate than us. We should share in our resources and not try to hoard up everything for ourselves. We should give above all because it shall be given back unto us good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
Sure, this life can be hard to live at times because of all the negativity and evil that surrounds it...but we MUST make a choice to do that which is right no matter what the situation. We choose to do and we choose not to do...because a man or woman will only do what is in their heart!

I encourage everyone who has taken the time to read this to PONDER the contents within; and to do that which is right! If you are dealing with racial prejudices, allow love to conquer hate, and compassion to dispel the ignorance of racial superiority because no one is better than anyone else. We all must live and will one day have to die. In fact death cannot be escaped and it has no respect of a person for whom it claims at any given moment.

Our riches, power, color of skin, race, cultural, religious or sexual persuasion, intelligence, or stupidity cannot change our fate when the shadow of DEATH comes to claim our souls. So let us stop...take heed and give more LOVE to one another while in this life! And do that which is RIGHT because after all, it is the RIGHT thing to do!

Peace,
