An appeal to work together
I am calling on everyone to be greater. If ever there was a time to hold one another accountable it is now. When I say everyone I mean every title, every entity in our city, our community, our county. No one is exempt. Holding someone accountable does not have to start publicly but in some cases it must. We must first exhaust all measures behind the scenes peacefully. I know that we can all do more. We all can treat one another better. How can we label all white as racist? How can we label all blacks as thugs? How can we label all law enforcement as corrupt? We need order or we would be in total chaos. Rules and regulations are established for everyone’s overall protection. There are bad in every group of life but this categorizing everyone because of one or a few is ridiculous. I strongly believe everyone needs a raise but right now I am speaking of law enforcement and teachers. I want you take a moment and think about their jobs. We are going to hold one accountable and make our community greater.
