Time plus pleasure grants me this golden opportunity to sit here and scribe you this letter. I’ve heard that saying along time ago and seen it used by many. It’s cliche, but I don’t want our fight for justice to become that at all. I don’t want time being a healer to have a negative effect on our struggles. I mean that, as time goes by the wound seals up.
I don’t want our minds to do that allowing us to move on forgetting what is and what is not. We are staying in your face. We do need time to ourselves to reflect and allow our minds to expand in intuitive knowledge, those aha moments. We all need that to bring the creative flair to the arena for justice. We all have a lot on our plates we must tend to and digest.
Don’t allow the lobbying for change in the criminal justice system to go unanswered. We hold our kids accountable. We hold ourselves accountable. We hold our loved ones and friends accountable, so what about those that make regulations and laws that can affect-effect us???? If a law is unjust its accountability is hampered and dysfunctional.
Who becomes accountable for the unaccountable in that situation???? As it stands, roughly 3,000 men and women, your peers who have fallen from grace but grace is redeemable. Truth said, it’s you, me and everyone else that has a voice. Let us hear that voice in this shared struggle. You may not think that it don’t affect you.
If you’ve just read that and I got your attention, your affected. If you turn up your nose concerning that your still affected. The issue won’t go away and you’ll see it again, hear it again and feel it again. One thing about Truth, it don’t need any witnesses, however, it repeats itself over and over again until your attention is gotten.
It may not be today. It may have not been yesterday, but one day sooner than later, Truth will grow deeper and deeper inside you until you recognize it. Something could have happened a week or two ago, or a year that went unawares to you, as you may think. But, one day a simple act brings that episode back in your mind full swing that you can’t shake nor understand the meaning of its presence so forcefully.
The cold-shoulder we give to things a cold reality it appears in our faces. We ask that you recognize it NOW, for NOW is today, yesterday and tomorrow combined. Let your presence be felt along with us.
