What would make you pour a bucket of ice water on your head?

The ice bucket challenge has been one of the movements of the summer. Celebrities and common folks are taking the challenge. My timeline is full of friends challenging other friends to take the plunge, and ALS is laughing all the way to the bank. It has been a great promotion for a great cause, but the question is what would make you do this? Is there a cause in your life that deserves the spotlight? Newsflash you don’t need ice or water to make a donation.

Beheading…you can not negotiate with Barbarians

You can not negotiate with anyone who would behead a human being. James Foley did not deserve to die this way. The act alone let’s you know that you are dealing with someone devoid of humanity. To post the act on http://www.youtube.com only makes the act more heinous. You can’t negotiate with terrorists and these people have shown us they have no mercy, and we have to show them we have none toward them.

Does Ferguson showcase the generational division in the black community?

Who is leading the young people in the black community? As we watch the conflict in Ferguson we see young people willing to risk tear gas to get their point across. To these young people Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are icons from the past. They are not really relevant figures to the young people. This is the social media generation. They are more comfortable texting than listening to leaders from the past recite rhymes or platitudes. So where do we go from here? What is victory? Will an arrest quell the violence? Since an arrest is not imminent will the unrest simply go on unchecked? No it won’t. The city has to return to normal. People have to go work, children have to go back to school. This has to come to an end, and it will, it will be interesting to see how it ends.

Is the Press a problem for Ferguson?

Michael Brown’s death is a tragedy. We need to find out the facts and then we will know what the next steps should be, but is the excessive press presence hurting or helping Ferguson? Does the presence of the press lead to more information or does it lead to more mis-information? Share your thoughts.
