Breaking News III

It’s been about two months since I first wrote posts on Ebola and terrorism, both categorized as Breaking News stories. Regarding these highly publicized news items, please accept my apology for the hiatus of time between then and now. This interval was certainly not due to the lack of news worthy stories entrenched with the conditions of conflict and/or health.

In fact, there were two recently reported incidents that captured the national attention of Americans. Injustice was openly alleged in the refusal to indict a Ferguson police officer following the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager, Michael Brown. Similarly, non-indictment of a New York police officer in the death of Eric Garner was viewed by many as an act of discrimination by New York police against a person of color.

logo2What followed these unfortunate events was civil unrest, rioting, looting and vandalizing. When the facts were analyzed by city, state and national agencies, it became apparent that conflict existed at several levels.

Well before the occurrence of these tragedies, I wrote the following paragraph in the Preface of my latest book, Your Health in a World of Conflict. “Civil disorder, also known as civil strife, is an obvious illustration of a heath/conflict interaction. Civil disorder is a broad term that is typically used by law enforcement to describe one or more forms of unrest or displeasure caused by a group of protesting people. It can escalate into general chaos, criminal actions and human violence”.

No, I’m not pretending to be a forecaster of upcoming civil disorders. In the United States, civil strife has taken place since the first recorded anti-government protest in 1783. I am just stating that emotional incidents of this type of conflict are widespread and seem to be replicated with little or no resolution.

    You referenced ‘….the first recorded anti-government protest in 1783’. Initially I surmised that you were referring to the Whiskey Rebellion. One of my ancestors who served in the War of the Revolution and later settled in Washington County, Pennsylvania was implicated in the Whiskey Rebellion and was later pardoned and served as a Representative to Congress. Then I realized that the Whiskey Rebellion occurred about eight years later. Are you then referring to the protest in Philadelphia by soldiers for payment of their service during the war?

      Dan. According to the info about the history of civil unrest in the US, there was a Penn. Mutiny on June 20, 1783 which was an anti-government protest by soldiers of the Continental Army against the Congress of the Confederation. So, this protest may not be connected to the Whiskey Rebellion.

    I so often feel so helpless when hearing about all the conflict in the world. All the hurt and ugliness out there that humans can have towards each other. Where does it all come from and what can we do about it? It seems the issues are never-ending and the pleas for help are everywhere and never getting answered. I think about that a lot. I’m hoping this book will help me to handle all the jumbles of thoughts that are constantly in my head and my heart.

  3. I am sure this article has touched all the internet people, its really really nice paragraph on building up new blog.|
