I only watched a few seconds of the video of an African American gentleman that was killed by the police in the US. I could not even bear to watch the video of Ahmaud Arbery…the gentleman that was killed while jogging…these are all murders captured on video.
What has this world turned into?
What can we do?
I know so many people are sad and distraught, I also know some wept, as I did yesternight, but please kindly find time to process your feelings well and don’t turn your feelings into hatred.
It is indeed okay to be sad after watching such videos, and there is ongoing systemic and individual racism in this world, but what is not okay is to harbor hatred in your heart.
As fellow humans in this world…please do your part by being kind to the next person you meet on the street, say a word of prayer for humanity, and for police brutality and injustice to end and ask yourself daily, what good can I do today?
