My Take On It - My daily take on a random topic.
The news stories of young Black men being killed by police will continue to come. This story line is simply too enticing for the media to let go. Sure these stories need to be told but what is the motive and what is the expected outcome of these stories?
It seems as if these stories are cherry picked and told for the sole purpose of creating a buzz. In affect they simply pour salt in the wounds of Blacks and Whites alike. These stories are told with the seeming end gole of just having a story to tell to cause discord and unrest.
There is an injustice going on here far beyond of any real or percieved injustice to the dead individual involved. When we see these stories we all pick a side without any real knowledge of the facts. We jump to judgement of innocence or guilt faster than the judgement of the Bush Gore Election of 2000.
We all have decided what side we are on and rush to defend Trayvon Martin because of the color of his skin. We rush to defend the Baltimore PD because Freddie Gray was simply a known thug.
All of our decisions have been preprogrammed once we simply see a head line or from the opening remark of a "Breaking News" story. Do we really ever see any real justice? What kind of good should we all be expecting?
What about instead of my side "winning" the argument we started to actually realize "hope and change"? I mean in a way that benefits us all. What about if we as people of color actively engaged the police instead of avoiding them? ...

WHY DO WE CHEAT ON YOUR WIFE?
WHY DO WE STEAL?
WHY DO WE QUIT OUR JOB?
WHY DO WE DO BAD BEHAVIOR? WHY?
NEXT QUESTION........HOW DO WE STOP DOING THE "BAD" BEHAVIOR
You know that you should exercise, and eat lots of veggies and less fried, salty and sweet foods.
But knowing something and actually doing it are two very different things.
You know you should stop procrastinating. You know you should watch less TV or go to social sites (or news sites, or your email program) less often. You know you should be writing, or learning that language you’ve always wanted to learn, or practicing guitar, or decluttering your house.
Knowing isn’t the problem. It’s the doing that gets us every time.
We will be discussing how those intrusive thoughts that we have of each other can become the battlefield that the enemy uses to pit us against each other and keep us from operating in love. Unless we get some self-control over our thoughts, our thoughts will become the emotional upheavals that continue to cause damage in our relationships because we choose to voice them, instead of rebuking them. Too many times we allow our thoughts to come out of our mouths, without consulting God on being our voice of reason. If we can stop the enemy from using our minds, we can also stop him from keeping us from operating in love.
PROVERBS 10: 11-14 (KJV)
11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

Today, my guest, William DoBrow and I will focus on how to get people to STOP, how to get YOU to STOP those things that hold you back, that are addictive, that are BAD for you. These things include...
Drinking Too Much
Someone you have given love to and received love from, has died. You are in mourning. You are bereft. To be “bereaved” literally means to be torn apart. We love and we lose, death and life are inevitable, we know this intellectually, but when we lose someone, especially in a way that makes no sense, or seems wrong, or down right mean, we must find a way to deal with the pain. Our question for today’s show -- How do I make the pain stop? The statement: “The only way out is through,” very succinctly explains the process of dealing with pain. We know we would all love to go around the pain, over the pain, even under the pain, but through the pain? There must be a different way! Join me today, as we tackle this problem of pain. Whether it is the death of a loved one, the death of a dream, an unexpected change, or new season of life. We must grieve, and we must mourn. Today you will hear and learn the five stages of grief and loss; what inhibits healing, and how to find hope again.

"DON'T STOP NOW"
"The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground". (EXODUS 14; 15-16)

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Hughes from Sewanee, TN, a survivor and activist who wrote a book about child sexual abuse called, "Enfolded in Silence/A Story in Art of Healing from Sexual Trauma in Childhood" Born in New York City, Barbara was assaulted between 3 and 9 years old and says she lived a childhood in denial of her sexual abuse which included sexual torture. "I hid my trauma from everyone, including myself," she writes, "but was very fearful, shy, and acted out my abuse on myself. I grew up and had a career as a sculptor, raised two boys, and got into 12 Step recovery. Before that, I got involved with toxic and abusive men." She explains, "In my 40's, I started having body memories, and in therapy, remembered my repeated trauma, over the process of years. I had an art therapist who was willing to re-mother me in the boundaries of therapy. I was very angry at God." Among other things she did extensive EMDR and turned a corner in her healing. "My abuse is no longer a stone in my heart." She continues, "It has a place of honor inside me, but is at peace. I have had many healers and I am thriving and very grateful." Finally, she wrote her book, and did presentations with images about abuse and healing. "I now facilitate a support group for women survivors of child abuse (ASCA). I continue my art work and volunteer at a food bank. My marriage survived my healing process and we have a good, loving relationship now. I have grandchildren. Family is very important to me. I continue to find venues where I can show and tell about the devastation of child sexual abuse and about how you heal."
