The World

One of my Facebook friends asked, "Has the world gone bat-shit crazy?"  Well, yes, I think it has.

My heart is sick, and I am scared, not just for myself, but for all of us.

First - To address officer's use of excessive force:  We rarely see anything but the aftermath, yet we judge these officers who I believe, in 99.9% of cases, are truly trying to do the right thing.  Case in point:  A video taken by a bystander went viral. He thought the police were being too violent with a suspect,  Turns out, the activity prior to the recording that wasn't on the video gave more than justifiable cause for the way the officers acted, and guess what?  The proof is on their dashcam and bodycams, but are the news outlets showing those videos?  One did.  The media is feeding the frenzy.



Second - Worldwide we've seen bombings and shootings, and even a man using a truck as a weapon as well as an attempted military coup.  There has been so much bloodshed across the world.

Third - We have police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge being shot for no other reason than that they are police officers.  It's crazy!  Why would you want to harm the people who are there to Serve and Protect us?  Even if a handful are bad, why take things out on the rest?  I think this man, the Dallas Police Chief, should be our next President!

Last - There is so much controversy surrounding both major party candidates for President, I think we should just scratch it all and start over.  No, that can't happen, but I don't feel confident about either candidate.

So I'm heartsick and scared, and the only thing I can really do at this point is pray.  Would you please pray with me?
