America- The Land I Love

How can you love a face you’ve never seen and not love its people.

Here we are America…2103 with the most recent deaths yet still on my mind, are of two beautiful young men…Kendrick Johnson and Trayvon Martin… Honestly, I feel as if I know them in a strange kind of way- The images are forever imprinted in my heart of the savage way in which they left this earth. Breathless…My heart continues to ache for the survivors of these young men. Have mercy on them Lord, as well as for the parties responsible for their murder. Yes, I pity them because at the end of the day, it’s God’s wrath, His vengeance against any which oppresses and murders his sheep that shall reign.
Kendrick Johnson, 17 and an athlete, was found January 11 headfirst in a rolled wrestling mat at a Lowndes County High School gym in Valdosta, Georgia. When I first began following this story, I cried… (Really sensitive-cry at the drop of hat);once I dried up the tears, I begin to think of his parents as well as the implications surrounding Kendrick’s death, how did he die? It was obvious from the photos that he was beaten severely…who assaulted this child? Before his eyes glazed over, before his last breath, who and what did he see? Yes, he was someone’s baby…even now, I can’t bring myself to get past the timing of his death. Am I the only one who sees this for what it really is? This child was murdered while in school, under the protection of cameras and other adults. He was then stuffed and thrown away like a piece of trash- I wondered when did the thought occur to kill him? Was it after the savage beating? Why was he killed? Was it because Kendrick, a handsome young prince, attracted the eye of a young girl of another race? I can’t help but wonder if other teen-agers killed him or if it was the act of a “protective father” whose mind was intent on showing Kendrick a lesson for conversing with his daughter. Had Kendrick lived, I’m certain he could tell the entire story…

While surfing the Internet during the exhumation of Kendrick Johnson’s body, I stumbled upon a video on you-tube. I can’t find it now, but…frankly, the video upset me. Apparently, a wrestling coach, felt compelled to utilize the limited information given to convince anyone who would listen, that Kendrick was not murdered. The coach in the video, stressed that Kendrick simply lost his shoe and tried to retrieve it, and in doing so caused his death. Did I mention he sounded like ‘the grand wizard’ himself. I wish I could find that video. He actually used a young man to give visual to his words, by asking him to try and retrieve a shoe in a mat of similar size and dimension (he actually sounded too familiar with the entire process). He then instructed the young man to scream, and let’s see if anyone can hear you. To be honest, I only heard his voice…and thought it strange that he wasn’t in front of the camera the entire time of the video, since he was so eager to convey Kendrick’s death was “just an accident”, nothing more (his wording).

Satan, with his cronies Jim Crow and Willie Lynch have been upset for quite some time now and he is seeking retribution within the African-American society. Let’s be honest…every time a young black child is missing, or murdered of late-normally there is more to it than meets the eye. The racism and the “good ole boy network” continue to attempt to get by in 2013 my people… and it is robbing our community right before our very eyes. Clearly, this air of superiority, this air of supremacy cannot continue, not if we are striving for unity within this civilization of man. The beast (satan) along with his imps are either reformed or voted out of office…it’s that simple.

The death of Trayvon Martin, 17-year-old occurred in Sanford, Florida…George Zimmerman was not convicted in the televised case for the murder of Trayvon because he was standing his ground, according to the Florida law. It’s obvious that law needs to be repealed. When there’s a law in a state which supports murder of any of God’s children, I feel truly sorry for the law-makers. Romans 13 teaches us exactly what Paul intended for authority when it comes to the government…God made the law and God made man. Seriously, what do you think happens to one who doesn’t effectively create the law for the good of all? Think about it…if any law is created from a malicious heart designed to hate and oppress a people, no matter the race, sex, nationality, or education-WE, my people, have a problem.
