Good morning. Yes, this post is going to take time to read and digest. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read it. I believe these are very important times, and I find it hard to post as though I am asleep when I’m not. 

I want to say something but struggle to steady my emotions and pull my thoughts together. Something dark and sinister is happening in our world at this time. I can see and feel it. I know you can too, but I wonder if you see how bad things really are. 

I don’t know how to explain it, I don’t know how to put it into words, but it’s worst than you think. I am not saying this to scare you. Please don’t be afraid. 

Don’t give in to fear or negative emotions. Don’t get discouraged. Be strong and courageous. Now is the time to stay awake (woke/alert/vigilant) and keep calm. 

Think about it. Ask yourself, what can I do? How can I be a light in the darkness? How can I be a messenger of truth? How can I make a difference? How can I help? 

First, my friends, what are your needs? How can you be your best self?

Put your physical, spiritual, and emotional needs first, where you will draw your inner strength. 

Second, my friends, ask yourself how you can strengthen your mental health. Be intentional with what and who you let into your mind. We have access to so much information and so much content. Don’t try to consume all of it or even as much of it as you can. 

Be intentional with your time, information consumption, and energy. Don’t get distracted by the darkness; keep your eyes focused on the light and keep moving forward.

Be aware of what your enemy (the darkness/the evil) is trying to do. It has no empathy or compassion. It has no humanity. It has no love. It will not try to protect you. It does not care about your children. It will not feed, shelter, or clothe you. Don’t be surprised by what the wickedness says and does. It is doing what it is here to do. 

Its only goal is to distract you, take your life and devour your soul. It is here to destroy every good thing in its path. To inflict as much death, pain, and suffering as it can. 

This darkness and evil has already devoured the souls of many of our people. They can not be reached or reasoned with. They are already lost. Focus on those who can be saved. 

You can not fight darkness with darkness but with light. You can not fight hate with hate but with love. You can not fight the lies with silence. Speak the truth in love. 

Truthfully, we are a part of the Pro-Democracy Majority, and darkness’ time is ending, and it knows it. It’s fighting back. Don’t concede. Don’t back down. Don’t give up hope or wave the white flag.

This is a war, but love will win. Truth will win. Light will win. The future always overtakes the past. Anyone trying to hold on to the past is holding on to nothing. They will lose. 

Here’s what I ask of you. Lock arms with me as we fight for our lives, children, planet, future, truth, freedom, love, souls, and enlightenment. 

I will keep fighting with you and for you. I will not back down until this war is won. 

Love you, and thanks for reading. 

Your friend Latisha

I am not religious, but that doesn’t make this Bible verse, Ephesians 6:12, any less fitting for this moment in time. I will share two versions worded in the way I would prefer. 

King James Bible

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Contemporary English Version

We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.
