This past week I have been re-introduced to morning news, and I can honestly say I remember why I took the liberty of walking wide around the informative broadcasts. Recently, I donated my TV to a worthy cause, so now the only time I’ll be viewing it is when I’m visiting some place that has one. I must admit, my guilty pleasures are BET’s “The Game” (Thank God for the DVR at work), and I am partial to some of the programming on Oprah’s OWN. I also am a great fan of TVONE’s Unsung because I am an avid music fan.
I suppose the disappointing Trayvon Martin verdict along with the recent SFO Plane crash sparked my inquisitive interest, but what didn’t are the violent protest and the minute rash of armed robberies that have taken place around local college campuses. When I learned about the first my ears perked up until I heard about the one that took place yesterday. The headline went something like this: “Three Armed Black Females”
You’ve got to be kidding me! Images of the movie “Set It Off” starring Queen Latifah, Vivica Fox, Kimberly Elise, and Jada Pinkett-Smith flashed across the screen in my memory. This movie intrigued me because it wasn’t about four women going hog wild, it was about four women whose desperate circumstances led them down a dangerous road to bank robbery. Anyone who has seen the movie know how things ended.
I ask myself this question, is there ever a time in any of our lives when we ourselves might be put in a similar predicament? I can honestly say, I hope I would never be forced into that place where sound logic and straight thinking were lost.
My prayers go out to the hungry, homeless, jobless, grieving, and afflicted on this twirling blue.
With that sad, have a prosperous Friday. ~GD
