A leader is one whom leads his or her people to unity. A leader is defined by someone who brings about peace upon their own. A leader is one who posses a kind heart with love and compassion for the people whom they lead. A leader.... Leads..
A divided city is the result of poor leadership. Over the past year we expected our leaders to bring calm to the world, unity to the world and to help mend the broken bridges, yet it never came to fruition. The world became convinced that the entire nation of police was crooked and anyone who supported them was a racist. The world become convinced that anyone who opposes a certain view point is racist and unfit to have a voice. As a result of false promises and catering, the world erupted in turmoil. The Police that we loved became silent. Their actions against evil became few and far between. Many of them quit, few stayed and few made the ultimate sacrifice. The world became a mad house and the target was everyone who opposed the narrative. A year later, the only thing that came to fruition about Leaders was that..................................................................... THEY LIED
The biggest lie in America is making Americans believe that they need to hate one another in order to achieve peace. The notion that Americans can't have a voice if it doesn't follow a narrative is in and of itself divisive in nature. It gives Creedence that one side no longer matters. Change can be had without the false agendas that we see today. Americans have the ability to come to the table, express opposition and decide the best possible outcome for the betterment of the people, however it is entirely up to leaders to coordinate such agreements, Not the police.
It was never about "The People".
Someone told me, the world can't know of peace unless it's felt the pain of war"
My response was.
The old adage of the saying remains partially true when it comes to foreign threats. Though civil wars are part of history and have proven vital in our time, we must ask ourselves, is it necessary? Intrastate conflicts do not need to be resolved by war. What you didn't know is that they have usually been resolved by one of humans most important traits. (The ears) we can hear twice as much than we can speak. There's a reason for that. The eyes. We can see twice as much as we can speak. There's a reason for that. Humans have the ability to "feel for others". We can feel compassion, sadness, happiness and a plethora of other emotions, but we don't feel that if we all we hear and see are the words that come out of our own mouths. So while the old adage does hold its own with regards to peace, an age old adage that seems to be forgotten can hold twice as much weight without the unwarranted casualties that war brings. Two ears, two eyes and one mouth. We need to listen to one another. If you don't listen, then you cant possibly understand opposition. Two eyes. We need to be able to see past black and white, past media and agendas of those in power. In order to feel, we need to be able to see personally where that person is coming from. One mouth. See twice, listen twice and speak once so that when we speak, we are speaking to exactly what we saw and heard, and not to what the media and someone told us we saw and heard. We have always had the key to intrastate affairs. The table where we all can sit with our two eyes, two ears and one mouth. A conversation needs to be had, but it cannot be had without compassion.
The world doesn't need war. The world needs people with compassion for one another.
