The flames of rightful indignation over the killing of George Floyd are being fanned by groups like Antifa and the far-left. Many police sources assert that anarchists are travelling across states to keep the violence and riots going. This must not be tolerated and President Trump must ensure law and order is restored in cities across America. Unthinkable things are happening. When far-left rioters and the likes of Antifa set a home ablaze with a child inside then try to stop firefighters from rescuing that child, things have gone way too far. The violence and riots MUST stop or be stopped with whatever force is necessary.
There are inequalities and prejudices within American society, as there are within every nation. They are corrected with dialogue that seeks understanding and agreement within a growing and maturing moral ethos. It moves ever closer to a fuller appreciation of those towering truths found within America’s blazing foundational Declaration.
Yes they are!
Lay down the torches and rocks! Turn clenched fists into open hands. Replace shouting and vitriol with thoughtful discussion that seeks something akin to a consensus of how America moves toward a new embrace of racial equality. Let people of good will, from across the political spectrum and differing social perspectives, set their resentments aside and sit together and work peacefully to set things right that are wrong and strengthen that which is right about American society.
I am not an American but I love America. You have reached unparalleled heights of achievement and human freedoms—never before achieved in history! Please believe that (with God’s help) a collective change in the nation’s heart and ethos is possible. Move toward racial equality that transcends political affiliation, special agendas, or creeds.
Support the President’s efforts to bring back order and safety to America’s streets, then begin non-violent, cooperative discussions that seek to resolve what is hurting the nation’s conscience. This has nothing to do with Republican versus Democrat or the November election. It has everything to do with the soul of a nation. God bless America.
