With everything going on in the world, I realize that I can no longer be silent about the racism that is and has been attacking my community for centuries.
Have we as a whole made some great leaps?
But recent events just highlights how far away we are from truly uniting as one – God’s children.
All it takes is one bad apple, one worm, to spoil the whole lot. Racism is a poison that coils around and infects everyone and everything around it. It does not have an incubation period, it doesn’t take breaks, it is always there ready to show its colors and infect those around it.
Today, I am praying for my community – as a whole black people are so divided. I’m praying for our allies – our friends. I’m praying for the state of this world. There is so much hate being exposed, and it grieves me when I think of the mothers, the fathers, siblings, grandparents that have lost someone. I’m grieving for those that have lost so much in the midst of all of this.
Today, I ask that you choose peace. I ask that you join me in praying for those that have hatred in their hearts. Let us pray to our Lord to open their hearts into receiving a new way of life.
