One dumb move, one stupid comment and one big fail….
Tomorrow is going to be a stressful day, one that I wish was a month away. Sadly, we can’t ask for a rewind but, which mean this day is starting in less than 12 hours. This is the day that we have been working towards, for the last few months, and I can say we are ready, but I am still freaking the heck out. I am going to keep this very short, so I can get to bed, but I wanted to ask you for something.
Would you mind sending your prayers our way? I have no doubt that we will pass, but this isnt like any test, this is the biggest test for this store, ever! Corporate will be in our store for about six-hours to test how well we run the store. They aren’t going to go easy, either. They are looking to see perfection, something that is very hard to give. Usually, we only have to worry about surfaces, but they will be removing canvases and searching for things to take points for! Think of a health inspection, this is 100% more serious…. I have to say that I am nervous.
It is nerve racking to have someone grade you, its even more scary to have all your big bosses sitting over your shoulder, the whole day. This is why I need you guys to join together and say a little prayer. I don’t want to screw up and cost my store, and I know I wont with you guys by my side! Please come together and pray for me!
Love you guys!

Why do we show these things?
Today, we are giving a new look into a recent gun down, as two police officers took the life of 37-year-old, Alton Sterling, after they had him on the ground. Sterling was said to be armed and dangerous, which led to both officers pulling their gun on the young man. The video has went viral, leading to the FBI opening a civil rights case. Sterling was said to be deceased by the time the ambulance got there.

Of course, with the video going viral we will be getting a lot of response by different races, across the world. The responses have already began to pour in, and they are what I suspected. One side of the argument is “He is a criminal, he should be shot,” and the other side is “They only shot him because he’s of the black community.” The fact that a man got shot and the first response is to make it a racial thing, sickens me, and the media is to be blamed.

The media will use anything like this, in order for them to sell another story. There are a thousand things going on in the world, but they choose to make the black man getting shot the biggest story, why? Because racial differences are sensitive, and they know that there is money waiting in the story. They know that this will flame up both whites and blacks, leading to people to talk more about the story, and leading people to read it. Yes, the incident is horrible, but the important thing to remember, during these situations, is that we are all human and we all matter.

Whether the cop shot him on purpose or not, we will never know. I am sure that there was some foul play, but either way, we can’t do anything about that. We can’t change the fact that a father is gone, but we can give his family time to heal. Its selfish for us to bring in race, when there are children hurting from the loss. We need to give them the time they need, and maybe one day we will have answers, and Sterling will have his justice, but until then, we can use this time to unite, as one.

All lives matter. It is horrible that the cop shot him, but that doesn’t change the fact that we all matter. Whites matter, Hispanics matter, Blacks matter, Irish matter, we all matter. Once we get that, the media won’t be able to take advantage of these situations, and use them to turn us against each other. I stand with all people, no matter the ethnicity. My prayers go out to the Sterling family, as they face the hardest days ahead of them. I am truly sorry for your loss, and pray for the best that can come. Again, sorry.
