Emotionally charged incidents are hard to forget. They help make us aware and alert to the need to do something different. We become aware of the need to evaluate society and our own hearts. In some cases it helps us to become more civil, tolerant, forgiving, open, accepting, supportive, compassionate and more human. In places where this is not the case we hope that just laws prevail and govern us until we choose to follow the Golden Rule. Love our neighbor as we love our self.

When the jury comes in buy skittles take a walk but keep looking up for the rainbow for the promise of a better tomorrow when we choose to walk in love beside people who are different and desire no ill will because it is a soul that belongs to God. God is the giver of life and he decides when we come and go. This is a lesson to choose again. Perhaps this causes all the Trayevon and Zimmerman minded folks to stop and think that perhaps like a bag of skittles we can be different, and life be good if we tried. There is a song that says "Though we dance to a beat of a different drum we must learn to live together under the same sun. Only through the son of Christ and the God of love and the Spirit to guide us can vwe get pass our hangs up to do this in sincerity, civility and brotherly love.

I was inspired to share the Incident Poem by Countee Cullen and combine it with the Florida tragedy where Martin was killed April 27. Son, Micah helped with the wording about the gun and performed it in Philadelphia with hand drums. Folks were moved to tears. They did not expect the pairing and it goes to show you how many people of all colors and walks of life feel this tragedy.

DON'T FORGET-NATIONAL SKITTLES DAY IS WHEN THE JURY COMES IN. LET US MAKE IT A 24 HOUR PERIOD FROM TIME THE JUDGEMENT COMES IN. BUY SKITTLES AND HOPING FOR THE SILVER LINING IN THE RAINBOW FOR ALL. HOPE THAT GRACE ABOUNDS FOR US AL. HOPE THAT JUSTICE IS RULES.
