https://youtu.be/umdq6B3HIZU The reason this is being shared on jerryshutes.com it’s because lately it has been perceived that all we have been is whining people who think the world owes us something that all we are ,are pants sagging criminals but we as a people have contributed a great deal to America with that said how we can make America great again in the 21st century without acknowledgement of all the people who made it great for the last 241 years you won’t see this your history books because it won’t give our young people the sense of pride they need to feel good about their heritage with that said take a look at why America became great the other story that isn’t being told be blessed.

As most of you know I am a part time blogger ,I look over my newsfeed to gather news for my blog this morning was no different than any other time I seen where this local educator in a local school system in which I went to school years prior share a piece about the NFL protests it went on to say how the kneeling is very disrespectful to our flag and veterans also stated that the kneeling was disrespectful to the families of veterans after reading I was compelled to respond ,being a minority citizen of our great nation I stated that” Soldiers of color have fought side by side with fellow comrades only to come back home to faced with segregation,lynchings and in some cases murdered by rogue members of law enforcement .

As most of you know I am a part time blogger ,I look over my newsfeed to gather news for my blog this morning was no different than any other time I seen where this local educator in a local school system in which I went to school years prior share a piece about the NFL protests it went on to say how the kneeling is very disrespectful to our flag and veterans also stated that the kneeling was disrespectful to the families of veterans after reading I was compelled to respond ,being a minority citizen of our great nation I stated that” Soldiers of color have fought side by side with fellow comrades only to come back home to faced with segregation,lynchings and in some cases murdered by rogue members of law enforcement .

I stated with that being said let us stop disrespecting the families of these people because their perpetrators are given paid vacations while the families try to pick up the pieces without their loved I then was told” people like me is what’s wrong with this that we made it about race we should leave the country” No its educators who are teaching our children(supposedly) in our schools American History and other subjects which includes the constitution where does it say if you share different beliefs from others you should be fired or told to leave the nation you were born in I was born in this nation 47 years ago in the state of Tennessee county of Gibson city of Humboldt I believe in honoring the flag standing for the anthem I have repeatedly paid homage to our local veterans throughout the year on this blogsite West Tennessee Honors I am currently flying 2 American flags at my home here in Paris,Tn.

With that being said I also understand from my own personal experience why the NFL players and others are kneeling we can’t compare police brutality with black on black crime because if Tyrone kills Krashawn ,Tyrone goes to prison where as if rogue officer Williams kills Krashawn because he raided the wrong house or asks Krashawn to reach for his licences he tells the officer i have a gun in a open carry state or is pulled over for a minor traffic offense and he emerges from his vehicle hands up and is still shot dead and we don’t think there’s problem ??.we march in the streets that’s a problem we kneel on the field that’s a problem so when is the right time.

Dylan Roof killed numerous black parishoners in a Charleston,S.C church and was taken in alive ,Charles Manson ,Ted Kazinsky,Timothy McVeigh, Steve Paddock all these men committed mass murder 2 of them are being cared for by the taxpayers the others executed after spending years being cared for by taxpayers Philando Casteel didn’t get that privilege neither did Tamir Rice, Treyvawn Martin and others they were gunned down on suspicion along so until we can actually sit down and talk sensibly about what we’re facing as nation in regards to race we are not going to be able to move forward telling people who oppose your ideals to move to another country is not intelligent because if that were so then why do we have a 2 party political system can you say hypocritical .

Breast Cancer Awareness


What you see here is an example how West Tennessee comes together for our own these are members of the Dietary team of Henry County Healthcare under the leadership of Lawanna Johnson ,a fellow colleague Rhonda Hill Townsend had been diagnosed with breast cancer and required surgery the team put on their team Rhonda shirts in support of Rhonda, I know Rhonda personally she has endured some hardships but always kept God first I have since took other forms of employment but shared the same workplace with some of the fine people for 10 years with that we congratulate Rhonda Townsend for becoming a fighting champion in her fight against breast cancer we honor your victory at this time.
