"Civil Disobedience" today has become uncivil disturbance aka blocking traffic, rioting and looting, shooting Police, Fire and EMS, etc. It has undermined the dream of MLK and fanned mind numbing chaos. Nobody is being helped by these cultural tyrants forcing an under-the-surface seething rage that is igniting into division.


Where were the Intercity Leaders when "white flight" allowed business/industry to vacate to overseas? Where were the advocates for equality when crime rates increased? There are other issues that cried for Leaders long before now in Education, Transportation, maintaining neighborhoods, etc, etc, as the list goes on...
"Civil Disobedience" has become a mob cry for group temper tantrums that walk on the rights of all who disagree. The issues must be address at a higher level to impact the writing of Laws that balance the morality & ethics that govern a whole society. I am talking about a heart issue that will right a political system. America must see itself on a spiritual revival that brings about a moral & ethical change so drastic that it rights sexual promiscuity, the family, education, business practices, etc etc.

This current mindset of Destructive Disobedience will lead to a forced heavy hand of Leaders who crush an uprising. I fear what will happen when social programs are reduced because they cannot be maintained. Throwing money into the issues is not working and cannot be sustained.

There is a need for something beyond what is being address by "Civil Disobedience". For those of us old enough we saw it in the 1960s in Watts, Harlem, etc. The result left gutted neighborhoods void of businesses and employment opportunities.

"We, The People..." MUST do more than disrupt, disobey & destroy as I fear this will unleash a bloody backlash.

"We, The People..." as a Nation will never be able to undo our past but we MUST build a better future for our children and grandchildren. A future where no one is to be judged by the color of their skin any more than should one be advanced or catered to because of it.

There MUST be a higher and a nobler road that establishes dignity, equality and practiced morality for the good of the whole.

The result of this is a fulfillment of MLK's "I have a dream" where no one can touch you without my rage because you are my Sister and my Brother, not because of the color of your skin but because we are together fellow Citizens of this USA. If you have served in the U.S.Armed Forces then you are my fellow Veteran Brother or Sister who has been trained to "Leave no one behind" as I have been. If you claim Christ as Lord and Savior then we are liked by Blood and accountable to the holy Creator God. These have nothing to do with color but have everything to do with a higher calling and a higher accountability.

You and me, "We, The People..." are in this together. You or me, we can't achieve the American Dream without each other. hrg
