Don’t Worry Matthew 6

By Stephanie A. Walker Stradford and Eric Stradford, U.S. Marine Corps Retired


AMWS, June 19, 2023, Summer Hill, GA -- Veterans of the U.S, Armed Forces gathered with historically disadvantaged friends-n-kin to celebrate endless possibilities for “family.” Trustees for the Free African Society made a pit stop here to plant a “mustard seed” in Generation Alpha believers. The Trent Foundation is one actionable outcome in a replicable reparations trust aiming to heal the soul of America.


Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, according to Juneteenth.com. It is "a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings." In recent years, Juneteenth "has commemorated African-American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement."


In 2023, the President of the United States colluded with the “U.S. House of Reparations” to short-change beneficiaries of an unprecedented $100 trillion reparations settlement. The 2023 debt ceiling deal puts into motion a series of civil actions stemming from the historic 1963 March on Washington, D.C. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. visited the President of the United States to delay an inevitable economic action, “We’re coming to get our check.”


Fifty years later, the youngest daughter of the murdered civil rights advocate reminded a nation of its obligations as “One Nation Under God.” “Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union Gen. Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Tx and brought the news that the Civil War had ended and the enslaved were free, tweeted Barry Loudermilk, Member of U.S. Congress, representing Georgia’s, 11th district. “The 13th Amendment was the solidified a few months later in Dec 1865 formally abolishing slavery in the U.S.”


The congressman’s actions in the January 6, 2021 insurrection places him in the crosshairs of an unprecedented civil action targeting a hole in America’s soul. Meanwhile, some Americans in Loudermilk’s district continue to prosper from the congressman’s support for Donald Trump.


Today’s $100 million settlement averts local economic catastrophe. A long-anticipated #KwanzaaCourt decision, like U.S. Supreme Court McGirt v Oklahoma, will set legal precedence for making business as usual an unacceptable practice of the past.


Henry Louis Gates Jr., a Harvard University professor and African American historian, wrote in The Root magazine that Juneteenth is “an occasion for gathering lost family members, measuring progress against freedom and inculcating rising generations with the values of self-importance and racial uplift.” Public Law No: 117-17 (06/17/2021) enacts Juneteenth National Independence Day as a codified federal law.


Today’s community reinvestment in the Trent Foundation invites the 11th Congressional District of Georgia to comply with U.S. law while fulfilling the donor’s intent for “One Nation Under God” codified in Public Law 84-851.

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? Look at the flowers in the field. See how they grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 30 God clothes the grass in the field like that. The grass is living today, but tomorrow it is thrown into the fire to be burned. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don’t have so little faith! 31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 All the people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things. And your Father in heaven knows that you need them. 33 The thing you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Tomorrow will have its own worries. 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? Look at the flowers in the field. See how they grow.
