Stopping The Violence
Violence has struck once again
Will the violence ever end?
Bishop Tyrone Washington of Total Truth Restoration Ministries, in Mableton, Ga. stopped by the show today. We had a much needed conversation about the violence that continues to plague our communities. I invited him to be on the show to have an open discussion about the up rise of violence that has hit so close to home. There were a number of shootings that took place over the weekend in New Orleans. The heat is rising is so is the violence!
What is going on?
I believe the leaders in our communities have dropped the ball. Now someone has to pick it up and run with it. We can't afford to lose this game of violence.
We discussed the increase of violence taking place not just in our communities locally, but on a national level as well. The questions I hear is why is the violence on the rise? Where are the community leaders? Why is no one speaking up on this issue? Have we turned a blind eye to the truth? Have we as a community failed again?

Bishop Washington shared a personal story about where he lived and how the drugs were so bad in that area. It was to the point the elderly were afraid, and the children couldn't play in the parks. You can hear the full story by clicking here.
We also discussed a few things that we could put into place that could make an impact in the community. We want to change the lives of so many people, young and old.
- Does having a church in the community and not being involved in the ails of that community serve as an injustice to those who live there?
- What are some things we can do to bring leaders of the community together?
- Why are we killing our own everyday and yet nothing is said until its officer related?
