The southeastern US has seen several trucks get shot at in the last few weeks. What? Is that the solution to the problems you think are happening? So, I hear about someone being killed by the police, someone I don't know in a city that I don't live. I am mad about that and I naturally go out and shoot at a semi near my home. Is that how that works? Also today there was to be a slowdown in I-40. People were supposed to drive at 10MPH for about 9 minutes. How exactly does breaking the law and being a huge safety problem solve anything? It doesn't. You have to change people's minds. That is difficult to do and breaking the law is not going to help that process. You want change, be the change you want. EVERYONE needs to stop being a color, race, sex or anything else that identifies a group over another group. You are not an -American, you are just American. Act like it. Any organization that discriminates on the basis of race is inherently racist. The past of someone else, maybe someone who lived 200 years ago, is not your future. We all control our own future. The book of your life is being written by you, don't give anyone else the pen. Do you not take a trip because 45 years ago your dad ran out of gas? No. You know that you can learn from that and be better. The struggles, difficulties and treatment of others does not have to be your life as well. You cannot be upset about others success. You also should not be proud of something you did not have anything to do with. If you are born a certain way, so what? Be proud of your own achievements. That is harder though, isn't it? You would actually have to work hard and achieve something. The fact is that if you feel that going into an area is unsafe, don't go. If people want to shoot at trucks and don't want their deliveries, so be it.
See you on the road!
