Today, more than ever, 'the way of life' is 'blurred' to most. What can be done about this 'tragedy'? SMQ
Thank you my Friends for returning for this afternoon's post.
School Days Cumulative Excerpts, 1964-1967 Final Post Series 9-c and 9d, in 'four parts'; October 2, 2018
For this week, the 'four' final posts shall 'conclude' my 'school days' experiences at the Classical High School, including graduating from the Leo T. Doherty High School, a merger of all the high schools for students who wanted to attend in 1966-1967. In addition, the posts shall conclude - 'the past'.
The 'room' will become the area for 'Comments' on 'Current World Events'. Today, more than ever, 'the way of life' is 'blurred' to most. What can be done about this 'tragedy'? SMQ
From the Past - In Conclusion -2 of 4
How did the move from the South to the North, and the ability to take full advantage of the opportunities available to me ensure a most 'shalom' filled life? [Shalom = health, prosperity, security, friendship and salvation - 'wholeness'.]
As a result of 'the Exodus' my Mother arranged, I would grow up in those 'formative years' [14-18] getting and living with the knowledge, understanding, wisdom and experience that I, and I, alone could have a 'poor impression' of myself and of others, and, that would hold me back. I was able, at this time of my life; with the help of fellow students, educators, my Mother and circle of Christian friends and family; by the Grace of God, through His Word, to overcome any residual 'badges' and 'any' 'indicia' of 'any and all' - 'prior slaves and slavery'. Therefore, for me, the 'civil rights movement', accomplished its legal purpose.
As a result, I did not grow up with 'bitterness'; nor 'play' the 'blame-some-body-else' for 'poor choices', I may have made. Nor did I grow up with the ideas that 'somebody done me wrong', or 'was lying in wait to attack me, because I am Negro.' I grew up in 'the present', understanding that it would be 'the content of my very own character' and 'the choices I would make on anything and everything in my life and walk' that would determine whether I would rise or fall. I knew that I, and I alone, had to take responsibility for what I and I alone, allowed to come into my life; for the people I gathered with and would influence me or I them and our actions' and - egads! The consequences, both intended, and, unintended, for the actions.
This, my Friends is - 'life' and 'living life'.
And, today, I have no regrets, and am glad that the sacrifices were made by so many for my betterment in society. I made some mistakes, repented, did anything to rectify the mistakes to others, asked and received forgiveness from God and - moved on. I have not wallowed in actual or 'assumed' 'bad memories', allowing them to 'surface' at a 'more opportune time for revenge'. Amen. Amen.
I played 'field hockey', performed in the 'band', and 'learned to swim', just like my white counterparts. I was 'included' in any of the activities, whether at school, after school, or otherwise, as I chose, based on my ability to compete and interest and strength, just like my white counterparts. There was no 'shunning', as the 'gatekeepers' had wanted to implant such of their own prejudices in my mind. And yet, I had the free chose to make friends.
I do not remember any events nor people in Massachusetts that were not as enjoyable as in my home in North Carolina. And, assuredly, my 'horizon' into the 'arts', 'ballet', 'opera' and other 'classics' were more open and appreciated, than if I had stayed in North Carolina. I 'knew' nor was 'hindered' by 'any one else's' - 'artificial boundaries'. I 'swam like a salmon', thoroughly free to 'enjoy' the stages of my life. Simply because, I did not listen to 'voices' to the 'contrary'.
I shall continue on the final two posts on Thursday, to conclude. Then, beginning on a weekly Tuesday/Thursday basis, on October 9, 11, 2018, as the Lord wills, we will thoroughly look at the 'state of the world', 2018. So, please stay tuned, that the eyes of your understanding may be opened through the 'Truth', from the 'only source', the Holy Bible, and the 'rational application of 'the Truth' to the 'facts' and events we are facing today, as a civilization on the very edge of self-destruction, caused by 'choices' we, the people have made by deserting the Living God. [Ephesians 1:18-18] Amen. Amen.
