Our President Elect Donald Trump!
Very Interesting how the ugliness has finally made it’s way to the surface of our Country!
Many are extremely upset with the Electorial College Voting in our New President! But, truthfully? This is the way it has been all along! Our “Forefathers” saw to this process. Trust me? The counting or not counting of votes in our communities has always been. This was figured out by me as I was standing in line with my Mom (GRHS) to cast our vote for President Jimmy Carter! Once we entered the Polling place, we awaiting our turn when an elderly woman came from behind the curtain saying that she needed help. I asked a poll worker if I might be able to assist her and was given the go ahead. In entering the curtain with her, her dificulty was with the “pencil on the string”. Now, I first questioned as to why a pencil was tied to the ballot in the first place, but I attempted to punch the hole and of course it didn’t work. Then, we both spoke of where the sharp pin like utensil that usually was in the Ballot Booths. At this point I began to look throughly for this item. Well, I picked up the Ballot holder and not seeing the sharp point object. Followed the string thinking that maybe it was somehow connected to the pencil, and no it was not. I picked up the entire platform and there neatly rolled up and taped under the ballot platform was the pointy sharp item that is used to punch the holes for your candidate of choice! I gave it to the woman and she thanked me and I proceeded to walk out and instruct my mom to make sure she found the correct utensil to punch the ballot!. I said at that point that the voting was not correct for our communities! My mother then thought that I was a trouble maker, and I let it go. Only to find out after the voting in of President George W. Bush Jr. that ballot boxes were found with uncounted ballots!
So, guess what? As with all this display, of our youth being shot down in the streets as though they are animals! This has always been in our communities! It never stopped, it’s just that the media reported on the crime, but, very seldom reported the crimes being committed against us!
We applaud the inventions of the mobile phones equipped with cameras and video capability as well as the Media paying good cash for pictures and videos! For with this invention we’re seeing what has been under wraps come to the light!
Our President Elect in my eyes is just a sign of the ugliness of “Hatred, envy and any negative adjective related along these lines” coming to the surface! The only way to truly heal is to throw up the foul atitudes and behaviors that have been undercover and a part of denial.
We as a people need not grab guns to maintain our rights! We need only come together. Stop the separatism that has kept us apart for centuries! Our Ancestors went through He– to aid us to this point! Dr. Martin King (GRHS) died to create a world of equal opportunities and created organizations to help us individually fight for our rights! They have become relics now! (the organizations) They no longer represent what he created! There are many people living in sheer disgust but paying rent! There is no one there for them and they don’t believe that they have a voice!
This is just one of the uglies in our very own communities. The major disrespect is we’ve had our own in Political office since the 1960’s, on the back of Dr. King! But, our situation has worsened! Not so much by the Government, but by our own! The implimentation of “Desegragation” further divided us and gave the “white collars” freedom to separate from the “blue collars”, prior to this, we had communities that were poor, but, because we had the mixture of “white and blue collar workers” we had role models. Why my mother lived on the same street as Teachers and Principals and we were the first to have color tv, and a sterio system, and she was a blue collar worker! No, desegragation was absolutely necessary, but it divided us as a people. We became the “Haves and the Have nots” and the haves did then and even moreso today desire nothing to do with the have nots unless it’s around Holidays and they come in oh so willing to feed and give toys to our youth. Following suit of the established systems. As though these families have no use of these items unless it is a Holiday! They don’t drive the streets in the cold of winter and see the youth trying their best to get to school in the cold, but difficulty in doing so for the wind is cold and cutting and they are dressed in inadequate clothing! I see this on a regular basis! I also know of their hunger as well as the inadequacies of their homes. Why? Very little if any furniture. Very little if any food. And Teachers (Most) tend to ignore these beautiful children who had no choice in the hand that life has dealt them. Most go to school barely getting by, for there is no one to show and guide them differently! They are products of lack of “Correct Parental guidance in the home”
My point? We need to come together to aid our youth, for only through their comaraderie and courage as well as willingness to take the risk to get their messages out can we win as a part of this great Country! We need to study the American Indians, they say that they took their fight from the streets to the courtrooms! We need to equip our youth to stand up for the Amending of the 13th Amendment stating that we are only a percentage of a man! This platform once established and help to rid this horror from our Constitution, will be a new beginning for us all! We have made great strides! We need not focus on the negative possibilities of our President Elect! We need to focus on our power that we’ve gained through becoming educated and moving forward inspite of.
Anyway, those of you who go through a literal He– everyday, yet manage to stay focused to make it through another school year and earn the next level! You my precious ones, you are absolutely Awesome!! We’re (KIDOS) working to “Celebrate You!” We have big plans for an event to honor those of you who may be thinking you’re all alone. Please know that you’re not. We recently reached out to Mrs. Michele Obama, to offer us a minimum of 30 minutes of her valuable time. In hopes that she will at least listen to our plans to celebrate you and aid in the removing of fear from our lives. Nothing yet from her, but we will continue to reach out prior to her departure!
America is a great Country! Our Ancestors helped build this great nation against their wills, but, they held their heads up and took what they had to! We helped make this Country Great! I say we can do it again, and our paths are far easier, all we need to do is learn and be willing to stand together!
Remember “We’re Here For You!”
I would think that the many who claim to have at least climbed up from your stations or similar, would be the main ones reaching back. Please know, we are not speaking of all, but the majority of us need to focus!
