As a child I was tormented by so many, the names, the beatings, O the insults seemed to never stop. I sit down now not to defend nor to agree with any group race or creed, but to ask when will the violence, hate, and animosity in our nation end.
My Pappy taught me many things as did his pappy taught to him. Seek peace at all cost never seek a fight protect defend all those who are weaker but avoid the fight if you can. If insulted remember this do not fight the poor fool he is ignorant and what he says is how he feels about him self; if anything smile and say thank you turn and leave. Did I get hit yes I did; did I fight only three times, was I proud of what I did? No, am I now, no those three fights were shameful things.
I learned what me pappy meant fools will fight reason is not found in an angry man respect and love mean nothing to a person filled with rage anger and hate for these three are the property the venue of the Bigot, Bully, and the intolerant.
A minister spoke of his dream once, not long ago to me, I still recall his face and I prayed that his dream a beautiful dream would come true of all Gods children not just for some but as he said all Gods children standing walking hand in hand, I saw it, I see it, but there are those who try to stop it. In our world of political correctness, we define and place in categories all the peoples, rather than mix we separate and divide. The social engineers seek division they have never watch a group of children play; those unexposed to the social hate and personal biases of their family.
Why do we frown on two people in love? No matter who they are stop your judging and let them be. Peace Love and Hope can over come but only if we love our fellow man as much as we love ourselves.
We have lost so much because of these new biases Mark Twain is gone who knows where, General Lee is hated so he must go, no more do we hear of Washington or Lincoln gone and lost. So are you a liberal who uses what is posted below? Can you not be tolerant and let peace love and hope wash over you like the waves of the sea?
A Bigot is one who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion: of other groups whose race, color, creed, or ways differ from ones own. These people feel they are right in the criticism and action against others who they feel have caused them injury in the past, present, and to stop future injury.
Intolerant: one who is unwilling to respect others ways, life style ,or are unwilling to tolerate the opinions, social ideas, or usages and manners which are different or differing from ones own: such as in political religious or social matters; other ways of defining the person or group is narrow minded, biased, of a dictatorial nature to the point of being totalitarian all to silence and eliminate anyone or anything they deem a threat or which they find offensive to themselves..
A Bully is a blustering quarrelsome overbearing person who is prone to habitually seek to hurt another so this foolish person intimidate others. our bully is prone to violence : A person who seeks to intimidate and domineer others for their own political or social reasons. So the bully browbeats, coerces and terrorizes others; they could and should be in many cases equated to tyrants in their use of tyranny in seeking their ends..
