Letter To My Reader’s
A Letter To My Reader’s, I hope this letter fines you doing well. Life these days are crazy. So many things have kept us locked inside and then other events brings us out in angry crowds.
In this letter to you I will share reasons for my silence and my opinion on some events. Remember each of us have a right to our opinion but should also be open minded enough to listen to others and discuss in a respective way.
My Silence Explained:
My silence was due to a family crisis not pertaining to my spouses health, although that is changing daily too. We had a nephew murdered and since investigations are on going all I feel I can reveal is it was drug related. I have addressed addictions before. You can refresh your memory in the post Alcohol: In Which Way Has It Affected You?
Trust me when I express we have bent over backwards in the past years to help this young man. Everyone in my spouses family have attempted to help him. Honestly as he was growing up he was a favorite of ours. Unfortunatlly, addictions can take hold and make the person become someone no one knows anymore.
For* by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13https://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/1-corinthians/12-13.html

I was born in the late 1960’s and raised in the 1970’s & 1980’s, during my sixth grade through eighth grade school years laws changed and they began mixing people in schools. My father had decided to sit us down and inform us that the color of skin might be different but there are good and bad people in every race on this earth. He taught us to give everyone a chance. During the eighth grade graduation dinner I found out that some of those students parents gave them the same speech. I still have connections with some of those adults today.
My opinion of the events in this world lately is as follows:
Why do parents these days not teach their children that the color of the skin does not matter, what matters is their character and how they present themselves?
Authority is a mess in this world these days. Our governments are out of control. Our forefathers are looking down in shame at the people we put in those seats.
The police have forgotten that they must uphold their authorities and that includes making sure that people who become police officers for bad reasons, such as taking their anger out on certain types of people must be held accountable.
Conclusion 0f Letter To My Reader’s:
Remember these are just one women’s’ opinion and we each have a voice to express those opinions. Also remember that having an open mind and truly listening to each other will make the conversations a two part conversation not a it is my way or the high way type of conversation. My father and the men of those other students made a lot of sense. The color of the skin does not matter, what matters is our character and how we present ourselves.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your nephew. Addiction can wreak havoc on families as apparently you and I both know. Grieve as you must. Keep writing and caregiving while you know you are supported in both.

I am finally getting back to finding a little bit of time for me and selfcare.
