Remembering To Be Grateful

Charleston Nine

As I continue on my journey of trying to live a grateful life, I Remember The Nine Lives That Were Brutally and Cowardly Slaughtered By Racism In Charleston, South Carolina.

After over 400 years of oppression not seen or experienced by any other race of people on the planet, and even in the face of the First Black United States  (2 term) President, racism still thrives and the slaughter of innocent Blacks still exists and is being carried out in the most heinous and clandestine ways.  

I value life. I value all life.  I value Black lives in particular because we are the ones being targeted for assassination, execution and slaughter.  Yes!  I am grateful for my life.

  1. As Christians, children of the Everlasting God, disciples of Jesus Christ, our LORD and Saviour, we must all remember that we must love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and like unto that, we must love our Neighbours as ourselves, regardless of creed, race, ethnicity etc. If anyone hates, it is as if you are a murderer, and we know that no murderer will inherit the Kingdom of God! All praise and Glory to God our Father and Jesus Christ our LORD and Saviour forever and ever Amen!

    • Thank you for your comment. I don’t really know whether or not your reply is appropriate to the spirit of this particular post since this post doesn’t speak of forgiveness or unforgiveness but of “gratitude” in the face of continued racial terrorism.

      Your reply is always welcomed but I feel that it may be better directed at the murderers and killers of the innocent and those who are seeking revenge – or have sought revenge on their perceived enemies – Such as what President Bush did in the false accusation of weapons of mass destruction and his unjustified war where innocent lives were lost in pursuit of his private vendetta.

      We must never appear to diminish the suffering of the abused and victimized nor in anyway suggest that they are not entitled to justice, fairness and a voice of indignation.
