My soul aches…

I am a very compassionate and empathetic person.  I am also a pretty devout Southern Baptist Christian which means I try my best not to judge or condemn people.  But there are just some things that make my soul ache….

I know that over 2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave his life so that we can all be saved.  I also know that the Lord our God has given us all free will.  But when I see things like this, see the post below, I cannot help but wonder “why?”.  I can admit that I get weak at times.  In these moments I lean on my faith and I pray.

However, I am also a firm believer in Karma! Remember “do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” I am not a proponent for vengeance, because you should never add flame to an already intense fire. It brings me peace in knowing that “what goes around comes around” and the Lord/Universe, which ever you believe, will give your transgressors there just do.

Police say Roman Thomas, 26, and Shanteria Sanders, 23, whose chest is also branded with his street name “Suave,” took provocative photos of the girl and advertised her on Backpage.com, reports NBC 6.

Who’s joining me for the @naacp Town Hall tonight. Register at naacp.org. #ProActivist #BMCMovement #ProtectOurVote
The highlight of my first @cbcfinc Annual Legislative Conference was the @bmcmovement Unbought & Unbossed Brunch, honoring the 50th Anniversary of my Soror Shirley Chisholm’s historic victory, moderated by @erikaalexanderthegreat. From surprising @jehmu with an award to listening to a panel full of #BlackGirlMagic millennial leaders— it brought me to tears. I admire all of the black women on the panel who continue to claim space, fight and stay true to self despite the insurmountable odds in the entertainment, political and policy arenas. It was so hard not to stan, so I didn’t get an individual with Erika— but kicking it with her was a phenomenal experience. She is so much more than Maxine Shaw the Maverick, hearing her lessons and stories truly left me Awh inspired of her knowledge, wisdom and commitment to representation! #BMCatCBC #BMCmovement #ForThePeople #CBCALC18 #UnboughtandUnbossed #shirleychisholm
Fan diva moment — when you run into the dynamic Soror Past National President, Past Southern Region Director, and one of my @tampadeltas1947 favorites, Dr. Paulette Walker at #CBCFALC18. I still remember Dr. Walker’s lessons on the best of Delta business from way back in 2002. AOML... #redalert #dst1913

“Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not words.” -Lifehack. — Creativity, civic action and service are a few of my passions and I got to lean in on them in this simple design via my passion project, @noelle_ivey for Protecting Our Vote Pac. Geeking out because this design was for an event with @vp44, @repjimclyburn, @repcedricrichmond and my soror @repmarciafudge. All thanks to my amazing soror, Adjoa Asamoah. —Voting and empowering others to vote is a lesson my late grandmother Geraldine Barnes worked tirelessly to impart on her community. I can’t help but feel that today she would be proud. #GraphicDesign #Gratitude #ProtectingOurVote #Proactivist
