Ferguson, Race, and Justice

Ferguson, Race, and Justice

by Chris Kaman

The killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, is not just a tragedy for his family, his town, and the state but it is a wake up call to everyone who claims to care about racial equality, and justice.  Blacks know particularly well that this tragedy is not isolated, but is symptomatic of a nationwide problem that cries out for solutions.   The Ethical Humanist Society of the Triangle is a member organization of the American Ethical Union.  On September 5th, the AEU issued the following statement.  I have included it here to draw attention to the excellent statement, and to let our members, friends and visitors know that ethical humanism is concerned with this issue.  We are not silent, and we do not consent to this brutality and injustice.  The AEU statement follows…

EVOLUTIONARY THINKING ABOUT COMPASSION AND LOVE

EVOLUTIONARY THINKING ABOUT COMPASSION AND LOVE – JUST WORDS, UNLESS WE TRY TO BRING THEM TO MIND AND GIVE THEM LIFE AND MEANING IN PEACEFUL THOUGHT AND MAGIC MOMENTS.

When You Die

When you come to care what happens when you die, it is  very good to know there is no afterlife. You are the one responsible for the life that you have lived and no unseen super power is the master  of your life. You alone have the power to forgive yourself for the imperfect things that you have done before you pass away. You have the power to remember the good things you have done for others and yourself. You can appreciate the beauty of life and the finality of death.

APPRECIATION

Time for me to express appreciation to all of you who have sent comments about my evolutionary thinking and writing. I am touched and encouraged by your comments and compliments. I must admit my shortcomings in monitoring and responding to your valuable comments. First because I have been slowly learning how to do this  job and secondly because many of the comments you send me come through as spam because your address is a business and you don’t give me your true name. I recently received words from Roseanna, Reynalda Berringer, David Anderson, Rita Prangle and Richard ?. I apologize to all for not acknowledging their worthy remarks before this. However, I see myself  as an imperfect human animal who is just like all the rest, trying to make the most of inherited DNA, education, life experiences, and personal ambitions to live a better life. I write to encourage others to care about justice and equality for all people on this earth.
