Chaos

‘Complete disorder and confusion.’

‘Snow caused chaos in the region.’

‘Behavior so unpredictable as to appear random, owing to great sensitivity to small changes in conditions.’    Dictionary

 

‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.’    Genesis 1: 1-2    KJV

Each of us enjoy the freedom that the United States of America affords us.  We are the. Land of the free and the home of the brave!’

I do know that none of us likes or seeks chaos.  On the contrary, we seek order and system and procedure and goals that can be achieved through hard work and discipline.

The American people seek and hunger for common sense politicians and leaders that are not pandering to fringe groups.

Have you ever listened to a leader who promises you a plethora of good things that he or she is going to do for you…only to later discover that the leader was lying to you…while they looked you directly in the eye and did not blink?

Many proclaim, ‘America First.’…until the day that we are attacked and on the verge of defeat…and then we will want to call on our global allies for assistance!

Some of us are members of faith communities that teach us that we are the chosen and the called and thus…if you do not see it our way….there is the highway.  Do you really believe that God created the Earth and the human family, out of chaos, and decided that he was only interested in a select few…and the rest would make a fine barbecue?  What if you are one of the barbecue candidates?

The Christian community is so fragmented that some groups are satisfied that members of the other groups are not, really, Christians.

When we decide to yield our brains and logical thinking processes to an autocratic leader…and subsequently if our understanding of world events does not come out of that leaders mouth they are wrong…we are participating in chaos.

Have you ever had a member of your family or a church leader or a political leader…or a boss…that if you did not agree with them in all areas…they sought to punish you?  It happens!  I have witnessed it.

I have witnessed colleagues who, conveniently, looked the other way, when wrong doing occurred…out of a fear for their job and a trepidation of becoming a whistle blower.

I have always had the ability to empathize with others misfortunes and plights, although I was not experiencing the same thing.  We may say, ‘Whistle blowers are akin to traitors…and should be punished as we did in the old days…shooting, hanging, death!’  What if you are trapped in an environment that you see with your eyes and hear with your ears and understand with your heart is…wrong…and illegal…and dangerous and threatening for you and your colleagues and your family and your loved ones….would you appreciate your safety being threatened and your family being placed in danger, if you were a whistle blower?

‘I believe in full LBTQ rights.

That we should protect the planet.

That the world is bigger than America.

That everyone deserves healthcare.

That all religions are beautiful.

That people and places are made better by diversity.

I don’t think that’s radical.

I think humanity feels radical to inhumane people.’
