4th of July

July 5, 2018

They say “sit down, be grateful.” That’s only because that applies to them!

How was everyones 4th of July? Mine was pretty eventful. I went to a block party close to where I live. It included concerts, food trucks and a finale of fireworks at the end. Midway thru, I decided  to check out the Venice Beach boardwalk area and check out the fireworks there. It was pretty weird celebrating with all the madness that’s going on in this Country. How can we talk about “…Liberty and Justice for all” when currently there are children still separated from their parents? Theres also, STILL no clean water in Flint, Michigan! It’s mind blowing to me what’s going on. They say “sit down, be grateful.” That’s only because that applies to them! When you don’t have to worry about being discriminated against and being treated LESS than human by placing you in fences, or worry about your neighborhood demographic/social class being affected by lead in the water, YES! You should SIT DOWN and be gratetful! But for the rest of us, we got a lot of  fighting to do to make this Country be what it SHOULD have been a long time ago!
