What do you say when?

Let me state this. I believe that there are evil persons in our police force, military, society and government. People who serve for a purpose that is not altruistic.

Over the decades these persons have learned, adapted and manipulated systems that have permitted them to inflict their evil on others.  

I am appalled by callous and public murder of George Floyd.  He was murdered no less than if he was lynched in the dead of night. I am also certain he is not an exception, but the most recent example of systemic racism that exists in many of our public, civil and private institutions.

I don’t believe George Floyd grew up to be a good man, nor do I believe certain others like Michael Brown was a good man. But the manner of their deaths is not justifiable. They were delivered by comparably evil men in blue uniforms.

Face facts. Not all people of color are evil and not all men in blue are pure.

The only distasteful issue associated with this most recent death aren’t the protests; it’s the fact that “murder while blue” wasn’t resolved when innocents, like Breona and Jordan were killed.

Many years back I wrote about “Big D” the son of some very good friends back in Connecticut, and how he made me cry.

Just so you know how long ago this was, Big D grew up and got a college scholarship.  It wasn’t for him so he followed his heart and joined the United States Air Force.  Over these intervening years Big D served two tours in Afganistan, got married to a lovely girl, Cute C, spent a hitch with his bride in Spain and they returned to the US a year or so ago.

They remodeled a home on the west coast where he is serving.

But just this year, 2020, Big D and Cute C became the parents of Tiny R.  From he pictures she looks just adorable.

I just wanted to share this as it ties my old blogs from years ago to today.  Life goes on, Big D made me cry but he’s also made me smile.
