I really do. I drove home tonight with several thoughts. I felt a little nauseous thinking about Jamar Clark, police tyranny, and so called “religious” people waging war on entire nations.
I knew I should have not been up last night reading articles, fact checking and thinking more about King’s “Why We Cant Wait.” I get drawn in way too deep and even my big heart, MBA degree, baby face, and unrelenting drive can’t solve these complex problems.
So after 2 phone calls and the annoying pop songs on the radio, I knew I needed an attitude check. I was tired, annoyed, angry, and quite a few un-godly thoughts crossed my mind. I am human and I don’t always believe that we can fight insane people with love alone.
I waited for traffic to stop and went to youtube on my phone. I blasted Take Me to the King, Oceans, I Luh God and a few more gospel songs until I made it to my parking garage. My mood shifted. I felt like I could face the world again. If I did not know him….had my mother never taught me to pray and keep my faith, I am not sure how I would keep hate for the Boggie Man out of my heart.
