ON THE BACK BURNER

April 29

I know that guns don't kill people, people kill people. I know that bad things happen to good people. I also know that in the back of my head, I can hear my Mother saying, "God is going to punish you." And deep in my head, I do have that thought, even if I know that people are responsible for their actions. Just saying.. .... Right now, I am wrapped up in learning a Torah portion to read in June. It relates the message from God to Moses and Aaron that they should send spies to get the lay of the land. God is unhappy by the behavior of the people and he kills a generation of Israelites. Just saying.. .... That brought my thoughts to the Holocaust. A generation of Jews were wiped out. Just saying...... I am thinking of young Black men who have the highest death rate than any other group. They are a generation gone. I don't have an answer. People, show respect for life. Just saying.....
