Until we can understand violence is not normal and we continue to dismiss black-on-black murder we will lose many valued souls. In the nation’s capital, around where I live many people go to bed every night with the sound of gunshots ringing in their ears, afraid to let their children come out and play. Elderly people cannot go sit on their porch for fear of being killed like Mrs. Lucas Silence will not help this. Black People have two terrible problems. Them and Us and until we solve both we be merely surviving and not thriving.
Please know I am only sharing to let someone out there know that A. If you are currently sick or isolated, you are not alone, you will make it out the other side, I know this with my whole being, and B.

Today is the 93rd birthday of Coretta Scott King, who died in January.
For 30 years she was my mentor and friend. She honored me by allowing me to write her memoirs: My Life, My Love, My Legacy. I pray that one day we will honor and celebrate her birthday.

Here are at least three aspects you should know about her.
There is also plan B. Under martial law, the president can seize banks, seize control of the Internet and media to broadcast his emergency statements. He will have enormous power and since he believes whatever he does is in the public interest and the cowardly GOP will back him up, he can close down the polls and the elections to save the Republic because the Pandemic would make it too dangerous for large groups to go to the voting polls.
Change your address to 91 Goshen PLACE. When the Pharaoh would not let the Enslaved Hebrews go, God sent plagues, flies, turned their water to blood, killed their first born, but none of the plagues hit Goshen, which was a place where his people the Hebrews lived. So in Psalms 91 promises believers, “A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand ..because you have made the Lord your refuge, the Most High your dwelling place. No Evil shall befall you nor shall any PLAGUE COME NEAR YOUR DWELLING. So let us live in faith as Goshenites.
