A good suggestion as part of the solution, I would say ... empathize and assimilate.

I so echo Ravi Zacharias' sentiments (see below link). Beauty from ashes - that's what our Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer specializes in. Turning heart and soul to the Living God during these tumultuous times needs to be our first thought, not the last ... or forgotten all together.

"GOD, the Master, The Holy of Israel,
has this solemn counsel:
'Your salvation requires you to turn back to me
and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves.
Your strength will come from settling down
in complete dependence on me—
The very thing
you've been unwilling to do.' "
- Isaiah 30:15 MSG

One man's considered opinion.

"As you go through life, try to be that person who's actions teach others how to be better people and better citizens. Reach out to that shy person who's not so popular. Stand up for others when they're being treated unfairly, in both small and large things. Take the time to listen to that friend who's having a difficult time. Do not hide your faith and beliefs under a bushel basket, especially in this world that seems to have gone mad with political correctness. Treat others the way you would like to be treated, if you stood in their shoes.

These small things become the unplanned syllabus for becoming a good citizen. And your efforts to live them will help to form the fabric of a civil society, and a free and prosperous nation, where inherent equality and liberty are inviolable."

- Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

A man who decidedly chooses to define himself and the foundation for his character primarily by something other than his race.

I'm a person of color who has experienced racism and discrimination on multiple levels and in multiple instances, and am acutely aware of its reality in our culture and country. Nothing ... NOTHING ... condones the gunning down of police authorities in such a manner as was done last night in Dallas, TX. The leadership of this country needs to forcefully say the same.

I don't care whether you think police are corrupt or not corrupt. In a nation of laws, and one founded on respect for and proper obedience to governing authorities, we are NOT to take matters into our own hands. We are not to be lethally confrontational or revengeful based on our opinions or emotional drives. Our individual and collective actions and reactions are to be measured and funneled through the appropriate vehicles of expression we have available to us. We are not yet a tyrannical country ... far from it, IMHO.

We are a republic ... envisioned to be standing as one nation, under God (yes, I said it and believe it), indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Let our actions individually and collectively reflect that.

"Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men."
- From the apostle Paul's love letter to the Romans (12:16b-18, NASB)

Story
Tagline
Transformed and loving life, people, and my Creator. Personable consulting & coaching pro.
Introduction
Who am I??  Well, let me "define" myself:

First and above all, I'm a follower and lover of my Lord and Savior, Jesus. He changed my life ... my nature has been transformed, my heart renewed, and I'm experiencing healing. He's my forgiver and leader, and I'm on an wonderfully adventurous journey with Him headed toward home!

Second, I'm married to a great gal named Mary Beth, the love of my life for 33 years now and the fantastic mother of my children.  Those "children' are daughter Lauren and three sons Tyler, Alan and Kyle; all great kiddos out of the nest and moving forward with their own lives.  Lauren is a graphic designer and branding specialist (Lauren Hanley Design ... see link below if you're interested!), Tyler is a transportation designer (with General Motors), Alan a Creative Marketing Account Executive (Mission Staff), and Kyle is a graduate student and Assistant Volleyball Coach at Elmira College (Alan and Kyle were also former Penn State Volleyball players). And now there's daughter Lauren and husband John's two children and our grands, Jacob and Nate Hanley!

Third, I'm President of Graywolf Productivity Solutions, serving the Greater Rochester, NY business community, and beyond, with great professional business finance and accounting services.  I provide QuickBooks consulting & training, Life-work productivity coaching, business back office and virtual office integration services. You can find out more about what I do to "earn a living" at graywolfps.com.

Fourth, I'm a "rainbow-man" when it comes to heritage and culture. My ancestry includes a variety of nationalities and colors ... Native American (Narragansett Tribe of Southern Rhode Island), African-American, Euro-American (English and French) and traces of others.  Though I understand the reality and importance of cultural and social distinctions in my own life and the lives of others, those distinctives always take a back seat to the spiritual reality of who I am and how my Creator views me.  I can truly say with the Apostle Paul:

"... you have clothed yourselves with a brand-new nature that is continually being renewed as you learn more and more about Christ who created this new nature within you.  In this new life, it doesn't matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters ..." (Colossians 3:10-11)

I enjoy road bicycling, walking, golfing (working on my game feverishly!), model railroading and a rail-fan of the real thing, reading widely, growing spiritually and professionally (and helping others do the same), and watching good football, basketball and volleyball.

I love, love, love to listen to a mix of good smooth jazz and contemporary christian music tracks (sprinkle in some good R&B and country tunes too!), and taking in the sights and sounds of the beauty of nature (and enjoying great pics from those who capture it by camera).
Bragging rights
I'm headed for an eternity with THE Creator of the universe ... will I see you there??
