price of sacrifice is an unfair game…or
is it? Many questions plague our minds
when we witness the blood shed of an innocent
life. Looking at Christ, did he deserve
to be crucified? Was there justice in
the murder of Martin Luther King Jr.?
What was the satisfaction of killing Malcolm
X while he delivered a speech upon his
renewed knowledge of a trip to Mecca?
The price of sacrifice is an unfair game
yet, it is the blood shed that CHANGES
Sean Bell was killed by 3 New York police
officers. All his choices were pre-ordained
and ordered. Like many he made the right
choice to marry the mother of his children,
by doing right as a Black man in America
and not becoming another “statistic”.
As it is tradition, the night before a
wedding both the bride and groom celebrate
with as many close friends and families
of the same gender as a last “whoo-rah”
before “tie-ing the knot”.
He made a choice to partake in the traditional
pre-wedding festivities and was killed
by 3 undercover police officers who felt
threatened as Sean Bell sat at the wheel
of his vehicle. The officers were charged
with 8 criminal offenses and were found
not guilty of all charges.

THE PRICE OF SACRIFICE…………
(I choose my words wisely as I express
As with the leaders mentioned before (in
the first paragraph) whose deaths has
left many questions, I CHOSE to hinder
to an answer with the death of Sean Bell.
His life and death were all purposeful
to me. I read many blog sites expressing
anger at the reckless action of his death
(50 bullets?) and the unjustified verdict
of the police officers.
rapper by the name of David Banner said
in an interview with sohh.com,
"It pisses me off, I'm hurt and to
a certain degree I'm scared, too."
I find purpose in Sean Bell's death with
multiple reasons. One being, had his death
never occurred, the carelessness of that
police force would have continued and
more lives would have been taken. Those
cops in particular probably could have
been living a reckless life making selfish
choices. This possibly would be life never
considering the depth of their positions
all-the-while, abusing a badge because
they had the man-power to complete a test
and become certified. David Banner would’ve
never made those statements and some young
child who looks up to him more likely
will hear those words and remember what
caused “their hero” to be
sacred, and may grow up to be a lawyer/
chose not to stay angry and lose hope
for the justice of my people. I don’t
defend anyone I just observe and discern.
Extreme pain is evident in this situation
but what’s the objective? Just like
a seed being planted in the ground, we’ll
never see what it went through to breakthrough
that soil. The point is it BROKETHROUGH.
Then there’s the beauty of the rose
that will enlightened someone’s
senses then it’ll die. Again what’s
the objective? What do we remain focused
The Price of Sacrifice is an unfair game
yet, THERE‘S PURPOSE IN THE BLOOD.
We just have to find it!
