“A Thinking Thought”
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.
“The battle against the Devil, which is the principle task of Saint Michael The Arch-Angel, is still being fought today, because the Devil is still alive and active in the world.”
~Pope John Paul II~
~Anthony Hopkins, ‘Rite’~
One man who greeted me out on the street was just a youngster when I saw him last. Now as a man, ‘Chip,’ remembered me. I had to ask my cousin “who,” in private of course, “is this man who remembered me while I do not recall his name?” She responded with his identity and a few others who were known yet not remembered. This past life held a great many memories and history that we shall never forget nor see again…
One of Kitty’s sisters, ‘Charmaine;’ who we all call “Butch” or “Butchie;” has been diagnosed with cancer. She and I held a special bond when we were young. I would hate to miss an opportunity to re-bond, especially at our current age. The realization of imminent death has many different effects on individuals world-wide. All death is imminent. For most of us, it holds a brighter yield when it’s you and it staring eye-ball-to-eye-ball.
How many times have we missed opportunities to say something, one last thing to someone who is on the cusp of passing over or who has passed? It’s happened to me and I’m sure it’s happened to you as well.
Oh yes, I’m simply thinking thoughts…thinking thoughts on what was, could have been, should have been, and what could be.
What do you think?
Do you, does anyone or everyone have thinking thoughts? Do you think a person would know the Devil if he or she met him face to face?
Thinking aloud, I can’t help but wonder how many so-called “Thinking People” truly understand the true meaning of “cognisance?”
Considering all the evil and contrary practices and behaviors associated, kindness, contentment, and mutual respect are tread upon. This current presidential election shines a lustrous and blinding glow riding upon blatant divisiveness, hatred, fear, and bigotry than ever before. It’s always been there. It was direct from slavery times until closeted during the late 70’s through the 90’s. The ‘Obama Campaign’ caused a major re-emergence…right out and into the light of plain sight.
There was too much at stake, they (the racist bigots) had to be secretive. But when one is reassured of defeating this man of color or a woman who is perceived to be a compatriot of and for downtrodden folks and people of color, the gloves come off and no punches are pulled; white supremacy comes quickly out of the woodwork, out of the closets to glare and gloat; to dominate and control the masses of colored people throughout the world. “We Shall Make America Great Again!”
We should “Pledge Ourselves to Resist To The Bitter End, The Efforts of Our Deadly Enemies in Attempting to Mold A Sentiment Against Us After The Southern Method. Our Deadly Foes Are Now Busy Educating Their Children to Hate Us And To Believe That We Are Low, Degraded, and Vicious Because Our Skins Are Dark!”
You may ask why there is so much hatred and divisiveness amongst the ‘Children of God,’ the so-called “Mankind…Humanity?” The answer – the warning – the posting is documented in within the text of every single Holy Book – ‘Qur’an,’ ‘Torah,’ ‘Books of Spirituality,’ and ‘Christian Bible’ in and of the world. It’s been explained, taught, and preached in every Church, Holy Mosque, and Synagogue throughout the world.
You and I are very much aware of who heeds the message and who it is that turns a blind eye and a deaf ear. These are the children of Satan…and death, “eyeball-to-eyeball.”
What is it that you see and hear as thoughtful thinking human beings?
We People of Color (and downtrodden folk) have always been daunted and haunted by the one who is/has been/always/will be – hiding in the woodpile… It is he/she who does not wish to be free while attempting to deny you your freedom…
What makes one do such a thing?
What is it that makes him or her hate their own as much as they hate themselves?
You know who you are! Yes, You! The one who spies and reports falsehoods on your family, friends, and neighbors…to and for the pleasure and pleasing of your master(s). Should your candidate, the evil one, win the presidency, what makes you think your fate will be any different than any other Downtrodden Person or Person of Color? The wide boot of oppression will fit your neck the same as ours…
Our family, like many, is no stranger to cancer. Our beloved ‘Allyse Virginia Coulter Cruz’ was taken away from us at the tender age of thirteen. She fought a damn good fight for over a period of several years. In her short-lived youth, the diagnosis came when she was just nine years old.
Butch’s mom, ‘Mary Ettta Henderson,’ passed away due to grip of breast cancer. The curse it seems has chosen to make a grab for my cousin as well. Another cousin of mine, on the other side of the family, ‘Denise,’ who happens to share my birthdate; she was born in the afternoon whereas I was delivered in the morning, also became a victim of the invader, cancer.
I’ll be visiting with her without fail. “Cancer Awareness,” the pinking of anything pink-able, is portrayed widely throughout the nation every year (for many, every day) …without fail.
Would you find it hard to believe that many people opposed the pink of the NFL’s recognition and league-wide display? It’s gotten better over time.
I wonder how many of us will go out and vote this election? I wonder if those who do will vote for the best candidate and not the one who smiles and pats them on the head…the one who call them “boy” and “gal” …the one who will roll back time, put you in (more) chains and label them as thieves, murderers, criminals, and servants in the planned world of servitude – “THE NEW WORLD ORDER?” …I wonder.
Til Next Time…
