In the words of Coach Boone from one of my favorite films of all time, Remember the Titans, “I don’t care if you’re black, green, blue, white, or orange” get off of this absurd bus you’re on that’s headed to a second civil war. Wake up and realize that all lives matter. Not just black lives, not just white lives, not only young, nor old. ALL LIVES from conception to natural death. Eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind, and one life for another will destroy this country. To those who are angry and respond with violence, you are not innocent; a crime is a crime is a crime. To those who protest: you have the right to do so peacefully, HOWEVER educate yourselves for the love of God. If you don’t know Every. Single. Detail. that is available to the public then you as a citizen have not done your job of making an informed decision that is advancing the well-being of this country. I cannot tell you how many people I have seen respond solely in outrage even though they have no personal connection to any of these cases. Do you people remember Benghazi? That wasn’t labeled as a terrorist attack until some time after. The true information takes time for the public to receive. As I stand this very moment watching the news in regards to the shooting at the Dallas protest, President Obama himself says “we still don’t have all of the facts.” Learn from history people, wait until you know the truth and every detail. If you still feel something was handled in an unjust way, then do something about it, but do so PEACEFULLY, and in a PRODUCTIVE manner.

It’s time for everyone to wake up, and become what we truly are The UNITED States of America.
