The Black Band

Last week was a tough one. Over 7 peace officers were killed on the line of duty. One was executed while pumping gas. What threatening manner did he present? Was he abusing his power? Was he thrashing people of a different race around? Was he shooting at people when he couldn’t gone hand-to-hand? No. He was pumping gas. Shot in the back of the head and fifteen more times. Clear sign of hate and rage. A Trooper in Louisiana stopped to assist what seemed like a motorist in need. What do you think ran through his mind? That he could possibly die? That the person was waiting to ambush him? Without even thinking he was going to assist someone who he thought was in need of assistance not knowing about the persons race, social class, or criminal history. Instead he got repaid with his life being taken with the last words he possibly heard was “You’re lucky you are going to die.” Here in Michigan I had to wear the black band on my badge for …

In Other News…

In other news… Not a lot of attention has drawn on this. Reported (dated on the source August 9th, 2015) a Texas man executed 6 children in handcuffs (ages 6 to 13), executed his ex’s husband (father of the children), and killed his ex girlfriend last while she was restrained to the bed. All of the kids were executed in the master bedroom. But I guess that doesn’t draw national attention. Criminals caught in the act of committing a crime and disobeying law enforcement officials are heroes and considered innocent while actual real issues of violence barely see the light of day to the public. Prayers to those first responders and to the brothers and sisters in blue who had to come to that grim scene. And prayers out to the families that had true evil step into their lives. People have to realize its not the color of our skin that makes people evil or a criminal. It’s not the clothes or uniform they wear that makes people racist. Evil exists in all shapes, …

Point Me That Way

I’ve always dreamed of going back to Korea. Last time I was there (years and years ago) I was with a good friend of mine. My buddy is Korean and was adopted by a Russian family (so cool!) and always wanted to go to his birth place. So he and I talked to my mom in taking us to Korea for our senior trip when we were in high school. When we both found out we were going we were really excited. The last time I went to Korea prior to that senior trip was probably when I was in elementary school. So it’s been a while since I last went. Our plane landed at the international airport in Incheon, Korea. Reality hit of how much of war still exists in a very well-developed country. We walked around the airport for a bit while waiting for our ride to our destination. Despite the beautiful architecture there were still heavily armed guards walking around. they had automatic weapons slung on their backs with lots and lots …

My Never Ending Garden

I am finally, and unfortunately, back from my vacation with my sweetheart. With the weather being an average of 1 to 15 degrees we were basically huddled in the hotel room. I think we would be the only couple in the history of ever to bring an Xbox 360 with them on a vacation and just chill in a hotel room and play video games together in sweats. That’s just when you know you’ve met “the one”. But all things aside I am finally back. On the car ride back I got inspired to do something great. Not just for me but for both my sweetheart and I (well… for us in the future). I wanted to jump start my garden idea. I’ve always been able to grow a nice garden. That’s the perk of being a mama’s boy. It’s not just being there for your mother. It’s also learning a lot of how to do things to make yourself self sufficient. My greatest memory is helping my mom out in the garden. My dad as never …
