On his weekend show CNN Newsroom, anchor Don Lemon interjected and corrected radio personality Warren Ballentine after Ballentine had made a non-inclusive statement along religious lines. Attempting to make a point, Ballentine began with “If you are a Christian and believe in Jesus Christ…” before making his claim. When Lemon had his chance to speak, he immediately pointed out that Ballentine’s statement was good for not only Christians, but for non-believers and “Atheists” also. This issuance of Newsroom had multiple guests discussing race in America and religion was not the main topic.

the most powerful and strongest thing ive seen in this universe is a mother’s love. the hardest job or undertaking i know of is parenting by far. i believe a mother’s love for her offspring to be instinctive as ive seen it change the animal. before we had consciousness something very strong motivated us to undertake the burden and forgo the risk to ourselves to raise offspring. imagine an animal in the wild raising offspring when it still has natural predators. thats a dangerous heavy burden. something strong was needed to motivate an animal in its greatest task in life, so evolved mother’s love. possibly from that came emotion, communication, speech, consciousness, etc
