“For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone.” (Lamentations 3:31-33)
This is not a normal post written on MRS. T’S CORNER. However, it was planted in my mind to write after reading the news. The first headline was “Personal conflict between groups preceded shooting that left 2 dead, 7 wounded, Chicago Police say. Brown called for judges to do more to help with the crisis.“
Crisis! Why are Black-on-Black crimes a crisis? Why are there no peaceful protesters in Chicago, Los Angeles and other states with high Black crime rates? I cannot publicly speak on Black Americans being murdered by racists and remain silent on Black-on-Black murders. I do not use the word “supremacy”; no man is supreme over another. God is Supreme!
I am saddened by all murders and believe some “guilty” murderers wish they had controlled their minds in those moments. I emphasized “guilty”; not all are guilty but sentenced by an injustice system.
I am definitely not insensitive, and I pray for those affected families. In Psalm 34:18, we know the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Yes, we need strict gun control laws but more importantly we need renewed minds / controlled hearts. I do not condone any criminal activities, nor am I a respecter of person. Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.”
This is a concern that needs immediate attention from our nation starting with Black leaders and Black communities. We cannot remain silent and sit idle until it happens to our families.
