Can You Imagine If ......

I often wonder why so many people just sit back and take it. Perhaps they are comfortable and just do not want to really bother with it. However, the Jesse Jackson's and the Al Sharpton's of this country really need to consider an option that has yet to be played. I see a lot of people of all types getting along just fine. Yet the headlines tell us another story. Why is division a constant promotion in the United States of America? Do these promoters understand the power of a very silent majority that might just be starting to stir? If I were to advocate any kind of "tit for tat" or "quid pro quo" it would be used only as a necessity to make the Jesse's and the Al's recognize their self grandeur and promotion in order to bring them back down to a true reality. For every action they call against others because of their take on race relations, we must meet it head on with one of our own. Whatever method they employ, you employ exactly the opposite. Whatever you do, start making some noise. Squeaky wheels get greased and your silence is deafening. Martin Luther King said he wished for people to be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. He was exactly right. Character counts and it is our character that should make the biggest difference in our lives.
