Happy Monday folks! I hope everyone's weekend was as good as ours. We had the opportunity to share some of the biggest stages with some of the most prominent names in Rock n Roll, and it was nothing short of amazing. Sturgis was all the rage at the Full Throttle Saloon opening for Jackyl, and Rockin The Rivers in Montana was a blast also!
One thing I've noticed as of late is all the recent events going on that has people in outrage. Whether it's the recent feud between North Korea, or the white supremacist groups protesting and rioting, people are upset, and there is reason to feel that way. These things are sad and disappointing, especially in the fact that someone lost a life in the midst of the chaos.
There is always going to be a select few bad apples that go out and give others a bad name, and that's not race specific. I think pretty much everyone agrees that white supremacist groups have no place in today's society, or black supremacist groups, radical Islams, Westboro Baptist church, or any other group that is totally out of touch with how the world turns now days. The sad truth, however, is that we are always going to have some sort of degree of this going on.
Instead of dwelling on all these issues, I believe we should focus more on what we can control. We can't call up President Trump and tell him how to respond to North Korea, we can't call up Kim Jung Un and tell him to knock it off and quit firing missiles. We can however, lead by example. We can get out in our own communities and not preach diversity, peace, and love, but live it in our own lives and lead by example and have an affect on our children and youth.
I've always thought that meme with the white kid and black kid hugging is great! "Love comes natural, hate is taught." Not that this is a white and black thing, it can be any race. It could be two white kids hugging or two black kids, two latinos, two asians, regardless of race, the meaning still remains the same. Race is irrelevant on every level.
All this madness on the news is not going to help the issues, though. The way we help with these issues I believe is by living with love. That is what MLK did and the civil rights movement, and a huge impact was made on our society, and change for a better society was put into place. If we love one another and don't worry about all these other distractions and hate bait, our generations will progress in a positive way, and especially the communities we live with. Love can be the remedy to just about anything. We are naturally born with an instinct to love, so let's use it. The more we do, the better a society we will instill for our future generations. Take care and we will see you all soon out on the road!
