Imagine you are the person in this story. His hands are around your neck and within 10 seconds there is no more breath for you. This actually happened to me and when I realized I was about to die I only had roughly 10 seconds before I could not breath any longer. My last thought is, "Now I am going to die!" What would you do if you only had 10 seconds of breath left in your body here on earth to live?
PEACE is the prime objective. But let's get real in this current environment of civil unrest and violent siege against the US Capitol building it is seemingly far off. There is an obvious indifference visibly on display when the reaction for one group who are comprised of disgruntled privilege protestors because of the outcome from the electoral college votes violently intrude like terrorist againt the Capitol versus another who vocal march of BLM protestors who are in front of the Capitol for their belief that protection of their life matters. Absolutely both groups received by law enforcement in a different manner and yes this reaction causes a continual separation among the US citizens who are on the browner spectrum in our society. Disparity, Inequity, Systematic oppressions, and racial divide are a deep seated virus infecting and plaguinig us. What can we do? What should the Christian stance be in this time of unrest and violent insurrection? God commissions us to be Peacemakers. We are to lay the foundation of truth in action and live accordingly to that truth - God's word. So, Peace is simply not just a good thing to pray for and hope one day we achieve. Peace is an active choice to pursue. I am not a supporter of silence AND I do embrace Christ's examples for how we should depict being a maker of peace - an infulencer in the world. Let's explore more...By the way the choice is yours on how you conduct your life and declare your stance. Selah and Shalom.
Humanity is at risk if we all don't start to become accountable one to another. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of this earthly realm. We must all do a true introspection of our heart to identify any vexing position that would impede the kind of actionable love that God requires...that being Agape.

Life as I knew it would never be the same. I could no longer remain comfortable, complacent, or with a cushion...."When that intruder invaded my world, everything of comfort, complacency, and cushion was destroyed. I no longer felt that there was a place of peace for me to exists within myself or in my literal surroundings. I could not remain comfortable because of anxiety, fear, and the constant harassment that I dealt with in my mind. I knew that I had to get it together and be strong or at least appear that I was a faithful Christian woman who trust God, but I had loss that fortitude."
