Time to Reflect

According to New York Daily News, 16 year old, Iquan Williams, was shot at a neighborhood party hours after family warned him not to partake.

As sad as this story is, it was his destiny. It is stated that one should honor thy mother and father and when you go against the grain, there are consequences. When Christ was placed on the cross, we were being prepared for senseless deaths. As parents we often wonder where did we go wrong, only if we can turn back the hands of time, but  unfortunately time waits for no one and keeps ticking. The world is full of hate and anger that it supersedes love, patience and understanding. It truly bothers me that our young men are dissipating in unfathomable numbers and leaves me concerned about the future of our leadership.

Positive actions from family members in each household could be the strength of change to make the world a better place. If you can, please take the time to reach out to anyone and share an act of kindness. All it takes is to give someone a smile, compliment, I love you or just a phone call. The next time you think about texting someone, call them. When you want to send an email to a distance loved one, write a letter. When your family member leaves the house give them a kiss or hug and wish them well, you never know when it might be the last time you get to do any of these things. Please feel free to share this with the world.

Study Shows That White Men Are More Likely To Commit A Mass Murder Than Blacks or Any Other Racial Group

While the majority of all violent crimes are perpetuated by men, American mass murders in particular seem to be the territory of white men. The Encyclopedia of Murder and Violent Crime writes that, “Compared with assailants who kill but one victim, mass murderers are overwhelmingly likely to be male, [and] are far more likely to be white,” and the numbers prove it. According to Wikipedia, 75% of the rampage killings on US record were perpetrated by white males, as were 71% of massacres in schools, and 60% of workplace rampages – a seriously disproportionate number for the number of white males that make up the general population. Clearly, there is more at play here than the advantage of opportunity.

Historically, the focus on serial killers and mass murderers has been on the individual motives for the crimes, and little on the overarching trend…

Bette Midler asks how much more death we’ll have at the hands of House Republicans

Originally posted on Twitchy:

There was a lot of misinformation spread about Adam Lanza in the hours and days following the massacre of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary, but we’re surprised to hear that he was a Republican Congressman. How else could GOP representatives been considered to have death at their hands?

ABC’s Jake Tapper managed to buck the trend today by asking President Obama where’s he’s been for the last four years on gun violence, but it looks like his vague call for “meaningful action” after several high-profile shootings earns him a pass. Shocking, we know.

Also, the Constitution isn’t the Bible, and we know how much the Left respects that. The First Amendment, though? Sacred.
