This morning the news breaks upon the consciousness of We, The People in shocked disbelief. We, The People, are in grief, sickening grief as we try to grasp what has & is happening to our beloved "Land of the Free & Home of the Brave". There is a fraying of the seams that holds us together in sacred trust and fear is gripping our very homes and families.

We, The People, red, yellow, black, white, brown or tanned, know that hatred brings a festering unrest to the soul of any individual and every group who has attempted to assimilate into the "WE" called The UNITED States of America. While there have always been pockets of bias, prejudice and flagrant ignorance, We, The People have cheered when these have been eradicated and justice empowered. But now, increasingly too often, we are seeing an epidemic taking OUR Land void of Justice.

Some justify years of continued abuse upon OUR soil. Some sight abuse in OUR history. Some use justified hate from Foreign sources or twisted religious ideology. Yet, NOTHING can justify any attack upon any innocent life.

These UNITED States of America depends upon YOU, me and EVERY person who drinks from OUR Land's bountiful blessings. Rational minds realize that any attack upon any segment of "We, The People," is a self destruction, a Social and National attempted Suicide!

As a former Police Chaplain I ache with every unjustified shooting or abuse of power and retaliatory unrest whether it makes the headlines or goes unreported. As a retired Soldier I ache as I see that which I swore to protect being systematically dismantled. As a clergy I ache in prayer as I go before God asking for His Divine assistance to show US the way back before the chaos attempting to destroy US all.

I quote the following as a reminder to US all from the U.S. Constitution AND encourage US all to look at 2 Chronicles 7:14 as a God given way.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
