This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

Jesus is so present, even when we don’t feel like He is or even when we are not present ourselves; Christ is still there.

Marriage.

All things that are new wants in my life. Eh, oh well, guess I shoulda been careful what I wished for when I was younger.

Hmmm

You would think that at times like this it would be easier to be alone. I’m busy at work, I’m preparing for Brandon’s 30th birthday, I’m happy about life in general. But its actually harder, I wish I had the family I thought I was building to share this with.

It’s crazy. I miss the little things. I miss making cereal in the morning, even though she stopped eating it. I miss sitting on the couch, massaging her feet with the little climbing on my head and choking me.

Let me go to sleep before I…..
