Stop The Madness

Stop

1. Here’s a serious thought…..deadly serious. I know that black people are upset with filmed murders of blacks by white cops. These murderous  cops need to be arrested and prosecuted. Although these are high profile events….the videos go viral immediately……they are not the every day story. There have to be more than a million interactions between police and citizens every day that don’t result in a shooting. 99.9% of all cops of all races do their jobs professionally every day while risking their lives every, single day. Declaring open season on cops and shooting them down like deer in a forest is not going to solve anything. Please ……take it upon yourself to urge people to use restraint. I am doing that right now by urging you to think, act, and speak responsibly. God is certainly watching.

2. The whole World seems to have gone crazy. There is a mass murder called a “terror attack” just about daily now. The reasons that these attacks are occurring is a complex spider web of religious beliefs, poverty, hate, political beliefs, uncompromising positions, people with closed minds, more hate, more hate and more hate. It’s epidemic and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. The World seems to be a powder keg right now. We all need to step back and take a deep breath and examine everything before the keg explodes.

3. The Buffalo Springfield wrote a popular song in the 1970s called “For What It’s Worth.” With apologies to the aforementioned group, here is my updated version:
.
There’s something happening here
What I think it is…is pretty clear
There’s a man with a gun everywhere
Telling everyone else to beware

.

I think it’s time we stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself….what’s going down?

.

There’s battle lines being drawn
I’m right. You’re wrong.
Everyone is speaking their mind.
Compromise and common sense are left behind.

.

It’s time we stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself….what’s going down?

.

What a field day for the creeps
A million people in the streets
Flinging bombs and carrying guns
Mostly saying, “Safe for no one.”

.

It’s time we stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself….what’s going down?

.

Hate and violence slice deep.
Into your life they have creeped
Everyone, everywhere is afraid.
Thousand of innocent people….blown away

.

We better stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself…..what’s going down?

.

We better stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself…..what’s going down?

.

We better stop
Everyone, look around
Ask yourself…..what’s going down?

.
4. I really wish there was something I could do to stop the madness.
