Life’s Playlist… Three Times a Lady by Lionel Richie

As I write this on Monday night, Former First Lady Barbara Bush’s health is failing, she is surrounded by those she loves and as reported by her family “her spirit and grace is strong.”

Barbara Bush served our country in many ways and her love for the United States has always been obvious.

Never glamorous, never showy, but always a class act.

Barbara Bush could be described as America’s grandmother, she and her family have my prayers during this difficult time.

Thank you Mrs. Bush, you have served your nation well.

Life’s Playlist… Abraham, Martin and John by Dion

On this date in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.

I don’t remember MLK, but I believe his mission was one that we can still learn from today.  Unfortunately as with many things in today’s society we have bastardized the original intent, putting a stain on the words of Mr. King.

Mr. King fought against racism and inequality, I believe that 99% of our country deplores racism of any kind and inequality.  HOWEVER, some of those who MLK fought for lead the racism charge at every turn.

Many of those who have made a career of “carrying on the dream of King,” are some of the most racist members of our society.  These professional “victims” are as dangerous as a man dressed in a sheet.

Until we ALL start to embrace the dream King preached for everyone in our society we will not find a nation free of bigotry.

To gain this equal justice for all, a cornerstone of responsibility and lifting oneself up has to be in the hearts of every citizen.

When we all honor our society, our nation and our fellow-man, we can reach the dream, but the dream cannot be achieved until all sides come together and accept responsibility for the injustices we still find ourselves trapped in.

 

 

Life’s Playlist… Make It Rain by Ed Sheeran

I’m almost afraid to post this song, with as much rain and cold as we have had, but I am trusting that Spring is here and the good Lord will let this pass.

IMHO Make It Rain is Ed Sheeran’s best ever.
