Baltimore Riots: Streets on Fire, We are the Water

Normally I would not write about events like what is happening with the Baltimore riots. Then again nothing is really normal when you see your nation crumble. It has become a common call out to the National Guard. Just this week the request is being made in my own city. I look back and wonder how things have gotten this bad. Since when is looting and violence the answer in a once just world? The media has done it’s best to make this a black on white phenomenon.  Yet when you look close it really never was.  Sure there are black lives that have been lost. Yes those lives do matter. But the enemy is not who it appears. Business and homeowners no longer feel safe. Guns and ammo have flown off the shelves. All in preparation for the New World Order. Curfews imposed, surveillance increased.  America once stood as the home of the brave has been brought to her knees. A country founded on faith and freedom has been silenced.

If we are in the Dark we must fight our way back into the Light.  Fear  is mentioned hundreds of times in the Good Book I am pretty sure God was probably onto something.  If we focus on  the negativity and live with an anxious mind and spirit we will not be able to experience the peace that is intended for us. We need to erase and leave no room left for Fear, so “Do not be afraid“. Easier said than done for most of us, as men in the world we live in we are faced with many challenges.  We pretend to be the Knight, Warrior […]
