Saint Francis of Assisi

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:57 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, warm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this FRIDAY morning, the real Friday (deepest apologies to my readers for pushing the envelop on the whole daylight savings thing by mistakenly thinking yesterday was actually Friday), the 23rd of March, 2012, another grey start to the day, no fog however, on this little sand bar created by the Last Great Ice Age over 11,500 years ago, creating not only the Cape, but also those amazing islands of Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Long Island’s exclusive summer get away, namely, the Hamptons, and all of the other small islands dotting the rugged coast line of New England, from Bar Harbor, Maine to the Big Apple, proving once again that we are all connected, geographically, geologically as well as spiritually.  Many people feel rather uncomfortable speaking to that notion, spirit, to wit we all are a part of. This FACT was witnessed yesterday in Sanford, Florida, where Reverend Al Sharpton, who lost his own mother just the night before, led a crowd of at least 30,000 people, who rallied in that small town of 55,000, in a very, very loud cry for JUSTICE in the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a young, promising, wonderful teenager who was gunned down in cold blood by a vigilante who could not cut the mustard as a real cop, thereby dawning the self imposed title of ‘Captain’ of an ill willed neighborhood ‘watch’ group, obviously promoted by the Sanford Police Department, who has yet to make an arrest of the man known as George Zimmerman, the confirmed, by chilling 911 calls, killer of Trayvon Martin on February 26th, 2012.  This story has swept the nation like a wild fire, bringing to light the fact there is NO distinction between this African-American seventeen year old and a similarly aged youth who happens to be from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, attending Brother Rice, a prep school in that wealthy Detroit suburb, who, before he was about to go on to Harvard, was gunned down by a ‘black man’ who roamed those ‘mean streets’ of Bloomfield Hills, ‘making sure the streets were safe’, and noticed this boy walking around and decided that ‘he didn’t look right’, and thus, proceeded to follow him, right after he dialed his buddies at ‘dispatch’ (the 911 operator) and told them of his tail on the ‘perp’.  After said dispatch tells him “we don’t need you to do that”, he ignores the order and continues to follow the boy, who was armed with Skittles and an iced tea.   When the boy notices the ‘black man’ following him, he panics and begins to run away, causing the pursuer to speed up the hunt, telling the dispatcher, “he’s running…”, culminating in a stand off in some dark alley, presumably the only dark alley in Bloomfield Hills, and after some bone chilling screams for “HELP!”, a lone gun shot breaks the silence of that night, ending in the tragic death of our fictional character and overall scenario, proving this is about ALL of OUR children and that JUSTICE MUST prevail to preserve US ALL. The ‘temporary’ resignation of Bill Lee, Jr., the ‘chief of police’ no more, of the now infamous Sanford Police Department, did little to quell the pain of Trayvon’s courageous mother, Sybrina Fulton, and his equally loving father, Terry Martin, who have spoken out to the world in broken tears, begging for someone to help them heal the hole left in her heart, and thus bring some kind of closure to what is most definitely a heart breaking state of affairs for any parent who must bury their own child…  A special prosecutor has been appointed to replace the previous local prosecutor, appointed by Governor Rick Scott, a good move on his part, as the FBI and the Justice Department begin to look at this case in earnest.  A grand jury will convene on April the tenth to go over this case with a fine tooth comb, and with any luck, “Justice brought to George Zimmerman in a courtroom”– words spoken yesterday by Reverend Al Sharpton at that massive, inspiring rally, also stating this: “my mother would have wanted me to stand with these mommies and daddies on this day, she would have been ashamed of me if I didn’t, and I will not rest until Justice is brought to George Zimmerman in a courtroom!!”. You can’t have it both ways–Justice is blind to personalities, it only serves principals, thus, the laws apply equally to ALL, and when those LAWS begin to get fuzzy around the edges, when little men with a little power begin to abuse and cover up the abuse of that power, well, then, Houston, we’ve got a big old problem now don’t we?  Absolute power CORRUPTS absolutely.  That is precisely why the authors of the Constitution of the United States of America provided US with series of checks and balances, insuring that monopolies of power and influence don’t poison our streams of Liberty with the greedy intentions of others–you KNOW who you ARE!  Have a wonderful weekend folks, and do yourself a favor, get out, wherever you live and ENJOY nature, unplug that Blackberry and just BE, you will be surprised at the revelations you just might find via the deafening   ’sounds of silence.’ PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
