“Cities Burning”

Disturbing to watch the news stories from yet another city in crisis.  Fires, violence, looting, these things are no stranger to my childhood.   I grew up in the next town over from Newark, NJ during the riots.

These current fires will extinguish, this current city will quiet down again; but believe me, the children of this city who live through this will never be quite the same.

Believe me……I know, I lived through it.  I saw army tanks roll by my block.   My dad was a cop, a good cop who treated everybody fairly.

There are good cops……….there are bad cops.

There are law abiding citizens and there are those who seek a reason to loot and damage and hurt….We must seek out reasoning instead of reasons to explain violent actions.  There is no justification to compound the wrongs of one by the wrongs of many.

How can we fight a foreign foe when we continue to fight amongst ourselves?

Peace,

Shirl
