What do abortions, HIV/AIDS, broken marriages, high school drop outs, the failing economy, and prison felons have in common?

America’s dream is broken. Abortion, broken marriages, high school drop outs, the failing economy, prison felons, and victims of HIV/AIDS are suffering and we need to pray for relief. We also need to vote for relief! In the upcoming election, we need to send men and women who understand that failed moral solutions lead to poverty of soul, spirit, body and pocketbook. Right now, as we communicate in cyberspace in this blog, African American leaders and lay people are pressing the White House to do something about the HIV/AIDS crisis that is adversely killing the African American community in seriously disproportionate numbers. Sound familiar? The same levels of pain and injury are occurring in all of the social categories that impact America. For instance, African Americans suffer from more abortions, divorce, high school dropout rates, incarceration levels and poverty rates.

On the HIV/AIDS front, The African American community reports that, “President Barack Obama commissioned the Office of National AIDS Policy to develop a National HIV/AIDS Strategy to fight the growing epidemic in America, but when it presented its vision in July, Black advocates noted swiftly that it was void of any policies or strategies that dealt with tackling the issue in a real way in their own communities, which are being decimated by AIDS on a daily basis.

In response, Pres. Obama’s administration gave the advocates a period of time, which expires this December, to develop and recommend methodologies, strategies, and policies they feel will meet the needs of their people. So on October 12, as part of the effort, several long-time HIV/AIDS activists and community leaders met with the people themselves at the African American Cultural Center (Us) to find out what they say should reflect a national policy on AIDS as it pertains to them.”

The thing is, if our elected officials don’t find the courage to call things as they are and as they should be, we’ll keep floundering, and people, including babies in the womb, will continue to die, to get sick, to drop out of school and to be victims of poverty.

The social ills all have two things in common, they are killing people right now, and they can be healed by praying, God fearing people who will vote for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL. Please think about this when you go to the polls next week.
