People killin’ people dyin’ Children hurtin’, I hear them cryin’ Can you practice what you preachin’? Would you turn the other cheek again? Mama, mama, mama, tell us what the hell is goin’ on
Can’t we all just get along? Father, Father, Father help us Send some guidance from above ‘Cause people got me, got me questioning

It feels as though there is nothing else to talk about these days when you look at what is happening in the world. We’re dealing with a pandemic and we don’t know how it’s gonna turn out or whether or not it will work out. People have outlined prophecies from books and fortunes being projected, predicting this occurrence.
We’ve already lost people like Kobe Bryant and Pop Smoke and it feels like the year keeps throwing things at the human race.
It’s a lot. It feels like a lot.
But we can’t let the idea of doom and gloom stop us from the one thing we have to wake up to do every day; live.
It’s difficult to remember the little gifts that we have, the gifts we don’t recognize. Mainly because we’re in a hurry to know and see what is happening in the world. But the fact that we have breath, the fact that we’re alive is a gift and we need to be grateful for that.
There’s a lot that the human race has been through; history is littered with it so much that it’s sickening to think we directly or indirectly influenced the things that have happened in the periods we have existed in. But we survived. From the days of Noah to Sodom and Gomorrah even down till now, we have survived.
So when you feel like you’re giving up, when you feel like your sanity is slipping – Pause. Take a deep breath, look around for a moment, and lookup. Because you still have life, and as long as there is life, there is hope.
I’ll end with this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt Quote, Keeping Your Priorities Straight,
“He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses much more; He who loses faith loses all.”
