What the Heart Is Full Of


"A healthy tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a poor tree bear good fruit.  

Every tree is known by the fruit it bears; you do not pick figs from thorn bushes or gather grapes from bramble bushes.

A good person brings out of the treasure good things in his heart; a bad person brings bad out of his treasure of bad things.  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

                             - Luke 7:43-45

Today, we speak what our hearts are full of.  

The hurt at being hurt by people sworn to protect from harm.  

The constant injustice of a system that allows for abuse of power and crimes against humanity; that lets bad apples stay to perpetuate more harm and bad practices.

Respect of the people should be the norm.  

We have a right to expect our public servants to actually serve the people with respect, regard and dignity, without fear of excessive force, torture, retaliation or death.

In order to have a justice system, we actually have to have a system of justice; whereby fair, respectful and equitable treatment of people the norm. 

Every and all lives matter.

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
