Alton Sterling Will Live On

 damn. a young boy crying for his father…. shakes me up a little. </3 i am a positive person. a friend to all, even the judgmental ones. In a world where there is so much distance created by smart phones and mass media, what the hell do I have to lose having a 40 minute conversation with someone walking their dog. time? Well time is of the essence and a gift not afforded to many so might as well lend an ear or a shoulder. Here it is this kid is falling apart but trying to be a rock next to his mother…. I started going back to church (a really great one too) like two or three months ago. The world is a tough place man. Especially for an unconditional lover and optimist like me. I literally have cried for people I don’t know. Also for people who support these kinds of brutal acts. The victims and the perpetrators. I struggle to come to terms that we are not on our own clocks and free will means that hate has a place too.
It’s really rough but I pray everyday that one day this will stop. the hunt for black blood will stop and that #terror will end. I know that peace will come. I know it will. God is watching. + With social media now the world sees how “beautiful and free” America is and trust me, they know the mockery. Sad we have to go through this. We’ve had great leaders die in the name of civil rights and we will continue to press on in your name. To #AltonSterling‘s son…. I’m sorry you lost your dad, little brother. I really am. This will not go unnoticed and your dad did not die. His life will be remembered and his name will be resurrected in the talks to come. #restinparadisealtonsterling #blacklivesmatter #yourdadmatters
