I’m still learning…

I was writing something a few nights ago about the violence in my hometown, Chicago, when I had a glitch. I had written what I wanted to say, saved the draft, decided to add a picture, and scrolled down to find half of my piece gone along with several links to articles supporting my point. God gave me the sense to put the computer down before I got really angry. I don’t know what happened. I am nearing a year of being on Word Press but I am learning, and there is a lot I don’t know.
So, I haven’t forgotten about my blog, I took a few days off to handle other things and to forgive my computer for the glitch. I will finish the post in the next few days and have up soon. Meanwhile, I have the possibility of an exciting opportunity… Stay tuned.

Chicago Shootings: 1 Day, 3 dead, 12 wounded

As a Chicagoan who moved two years ago but has family and friends residing there, I regularly follow the Chicago news. With all the violence in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD, there has been lots of coverage and outrage. Where is the outrage about Chicago? The only outrage I’ve heard about lately is the “Chiraq” movie that Spike Lee plans to film. The violence in Chicago is among many of the city’s problems, in addition to high unemployment (regardless of the official numbers) for everyone but especially African Americans and African American teens. I am glad, however, that the likes of Al Sharpton are not involved because he would only exacerbate the problem. What is the answer? Please add your thoughts in the comments.

No marches. Media not flocking to Chicago. Sharpton, Jackson, Obama quiet. What matters? Sad, very sad.
