“There’s Only One Way To Turn” by Butch Ford
Today is Resurrection Day 2020. But globally, it’s more popularly known by its other name. I have some thoughts and intense feelings on my mind and in my spirit this morning. Yet I didn’t know which platform to utilize. I just knew I had to get it off my chest. So I chose to vent via my friend Chellyz View’s blog (as I’ve grown to rely on the past several months).
Each day we’re forced to accept this new norm, and I try harder to sort out my feelings regarding the state of the world. It’s a combination of disappointment, anger, sadness, concern, confusion, and embarrassment. I’m disappointed in the current White House Administration for apparent reasons. I’m angry with how racially divided our nation is. I’m sad because of the devastation this pandemic has caused. I’m concerned that there are so many unknowns. I’m confused as to how we got here in the first place. And I’m embarrassed by the actions and irresponsibility of my people.
Waking up daily to hear the mounting death totals is mortifying and becomes more difficult to accept. I find myself having to socially distance myself from all news telecasts and social media commonly. The heart/soul can only take so much. We need to take accountability as people and learn to be of one accord. There’s a need for us to be more unified and work peacefully and harmoniously. We need to wise up and recognize that we are our own worst enemy. We’re destroying our present and our future. When is enough, enough?
