By now, I thought I would have heard more press on a very tragic situation that happened between two sisters in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles, CA that happened almost a week ago. It was a good example of how two women, in this case two sisters, would end up paying the ultimate price for having an argument. The mix for today will be short, I really want you to read the article and let me know how you felt after reading about these two young women.....
Tamaya and Tanisha Davis were arguing at 3:00 am in the morning. What started as a verbal assault between the two sisters eventually turned into a physical altercation – one sister pulled the other into the street and both were struck by a vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the vehicle is now being sought as he/she left the scene of the accident (click the names below to read the entire article).
I feel so much sorrow for the mother of these two young ladies - they were born together and now, unfortunately, they will be laid to rest together. Nothing in this world is worth your life and nothing that has gone bad between you and another woman cannot be solved by just simply talking things out. More and more, women are using violence instead of logic or reason to handle their differences. Physical altercations can lead to much more than just bruises and hurt feelings; in this day and age, women are killing other woman and while this was not the case with these two young women it is evidence of just how quickly something can escalate into tragedy. I want to pray for the Davis family and challenge all the men and woman reading this blog to make an amends to those that you have wronged or with those that have wronged you. Your life should not be the price you pay for something that can be resolved. Instead of using the venomous words and your powerful voice; use terminology of rational mindfulness and your powerful presence mixed with some humility and the ability to admit you role and, if applicable, you’re wrong in the issue creating the wedge between you. Learn a lesson from this article and improve your emotional, mental and relationship mix.
