It’s time to look in the mirror

While we do not agree with making a habit of changing the words to a national anthem, Mr. Remigio Pereira’s, of The Tenors, statement rang true at the recent Major League Baseball All-Star Game because of the spat of killings in the US.

His words:  “We’re all brothers and sisters; all lives matter to the great” were met with cheers from the crowd.

This sentiment was echoed a couple of days later by Mr. Lebron James at the ESPY awards:  “We all feel frustrated and helpless by the violence, but that is not acceptable.  It’s time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we doing to create change?”

We ALL share in the responsibility to end supreme violations of humanity.  (By the way, changing the words of an anthem is not one of them.)  Such responsibility means to look inward for solutions to a problem first before we demand action from others.
