I wasn't really planning on writing this blog, I was just scrolling through Tumblr and I was looking at all the cool pictures like I always do. But then I came across the picture below and it's just crazy to think it's been that many people in two years, with plenty more not reported or blown up on social media. Just taking the time to look at the picture, which I wish I knew who made it so I could give them credit for, just reminds you of all the senseless killing that's going on.

I'm not here to talk about what's going on, I'm not here to get into a debate about what we should be focused on. In the wake of the Mike Brown decision and the Eric Garner decisions, I just want to take the time to just pay some respects to people lost to police violence. A lot of these people were parents and children to someone who will never get to see them again. This isn't even close to the number of people that lose their lives in this country due to unnecessary and unjust violence. Will this ever end? Maybe, one day it will, but for now, I'm just going to pay some respect to my fellow brothers and sisters that are no longer here.

As this year closes out, I really hope that things will change, I really do. I know it will be counter productive to say that things probably won't, but one can hope. But like I said, until then, let's just take some time to ourselves and think about these fine people. Then take some time and spend it with your family this holiday season, because at the rate things are going these days, you never know when your time is going to come.

Any feelings on any of these cases of police brutality or just violence in general, leave them in the comments below.

Until next time guys.
