When Grief Enters In

The waves of flowing tears to be cried simply seem uncountable. Un-doubtable, are the numerous ways in which we find to ask,“Why”–a question that, though we may try, remains unanswered for our cores inconsolable.

One’s heart takes a sigh with dry and uncontrolled heaves while hollowed out eyes will choose to relieve, no longer. The burden so heavy, the eyes can no more cry. This is pure grief! Moreover, everyone suffers when a loved one dies.

But, there are those who feel that certain killings are no big deal cause we play the game called: “Tit for Tat.” But, when that precious one is made to die (whether white or black), emotions rise, and their families are called to lack.

Regardless of our past, or pains of yesterday, we have no right to strike to purposely put out someone’s life. And, to those who choose to make slight during times when devastation is wrought, just wait a while—See how it feels when your loved one is somehow caught.

The enormous amount of unjustified and uncaring remarks we read and hear clearly are not well thought out, nor could they be considered as smart. Why would we choose to add depraved insults and further damage to an already poor and sickened Heart?

Created so that we each bleed red, when grief enters in, ample time must be given to mend. I know this as a fact because it was just a short while ago when my only son was called out to succumb. Unfortunately, my boy was killed by the pop of an evil man’s gun.

Yesterday it was a cop who, much too quickly, lost his life. He too was someone’s son. And they say he had a wife. At the end of the day, one truth remains. Whether cop or not, as human beings in this race, we cannot escape.

Misery comes to each and circumstances, in this debate, should call to all to share in pain. For in times of sorrow we are to bear. But, perhaps one day we’ll finally see. When grief enters in, we all fit with-in the same sad skin.


Simply Divisive

The Black Lives Matter movement is divisive and a detriment to our country.  This is especially true when we consider the fact that the percentage of black deaths at the hands of other blacks is at 93%.

On October 30, 2014, after coming home from work at about 4:30 in the afternoon, our 26-year old son, Christopher Walker, was killed at the hands of another young black. Christopher was simply waiting for a hamburger at a fast food stand just five minutes from our home in Altadena, CA. 

No arrest have been made and no crowds have gathered to protest or demand transparency.  Recently, I was asked to write a piece for a trendy website in which I was to share our family story.  As a part of my piece, I complained about the BLM movement and referred to it as “a joke”.  The editor did not think this was funny and highly disapproved of my reference.  In addition, she expressed that she wanted me to say that the reason our son’s killer has not yet been arrested is because of institutional racism in the police department. According to her, the police are not concerned about black on black crime and also they keep black communities down.

I do not believe these statements to be true. Rather, I believe that no one has been arrested in our son’s case because most blacks don’t want to get involved when they witness a crime.  Because I refused to comply with the agenda, the editor would not post my story.  I now have first-hand experience to see how today’s media and groups like BLM continue to divide our nation. The video below offers more detail about our story.  Please pass it on.  IT MATTERS.
