I cannot believe that there is so much hatred in our community.
I cannot believe what this city has come to and it’s so shameful. No it’s not ok to hit someone, no it’s not ok to spit at anyone either, but you know somewhere deep down this relationship between the officer and the youth needs to be restored and we need to set an example for others.
In order for a community to be healthy, and create reconciliation it means walking in forgiveness. Is there a healing circle that these two individuals can attend and can both sides set an example for others or any other time this happens!
I was brought up to believe to respect one another, to forgive and keep moving forward. In order for our community to move forward it takes one person to say I’m sorry and I forgive you…only then we can all walk towards restoring this relationship.
Are we going to keep walking in circles? Or our we going to do something different? The definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
When are we going to start practicing and trying something different?
I watched a video recently this lady’s son was murdered by a young male. The mom walked up to this man, hugged him and said I forgive you and his family.
To the youth and officer I do hope this relationship can be healed and restored we do have many places wonderful community organizations in this city that will be here to support you.
