Angry America by Roseann Salanitri

     Below is the conclusion of an excellent article by Roseann Salanitri entitled "Angry America." Have you been concerned about how to stop the anger that is prevalent in society today?  Roseann gives some practical steps that, if taken seriously, would help significantly.  You can read the entire article here.

"...It is certain that we cannot do everything to dismantle the foundations of anger, but we can do something. If we don’t, we can expect the anger of the anarchists’ movement to spread exponentially and infect even the most stable communities nationwide. Should that be allowed to happen, America as we once knew it will cease to exist. Liberty will turn into anarchy and our Republic will turn into a democracy where the mob rules.
But how do we begin restoring sanity and destroying anarchy?
There are surprisingly many options we can choose from. For the police, the honorable among them need to stand and start demolishing the blue wall of silence when they see unjustified abuse. In other words, the good cops need to stand up against the bad cops. Don’t misunderstand me. I am not passing judgment on the police but I am proposing that some of the anger against the police may have its roots in a modicum of truth. Whether it be perceived or real, it still must be deal with.
For the preachers, they need to preach. They need to start preaching practical love and taking that message into the inner cities, where those living there are considered to be our neighbors and not some anomaly of humanity. And they need to preach that in Christ all things are possible and hopelessness is just an illusion. After all, hope always trumps over despair.
For the teachers, they need to teach. They need to teach that in America no one is bound by their perception of reality or their present environment, and that education opens doors where no doors were thought to exist. A free Republic cannot remain free when citizens are easily manipulated due to lack of knowing and understanding the truth.
For the media, they need to broadcast something other than victimization and racism, and voices other than the angry need to be heard within the nation’s cities.
And for the voters, they need to vote for candidates other than career politicians who speak life but keep them imprisoned with invisible walls of serfdom. A culture of life supplants a culture of death. Representatives need to lead their people into freedom and not keep them in perpetual bondage.
To conclude, America needs to wake up and identify the real root causes of the violence that permeates our culture, and then America needs to be pro-active in destroying those causes or eventually those causes will destroy us. In other words: awake, be aware, be active or die. Unfortunately, it’s that simple."
