Could it be based on silence that speak volumes? Could it be based on the comfort and a desire not be made uncomfortable? Could it be from mental and social conditioning that tells us this is the way is has and always will be? Could it be from those who are looking to other to make change yet taking no personal responsibility? No soul should be able to rest with the current state of our nation.
The constitution states we are all created equal and my bible teaches me that God created us all in His image, so who are we to determine otherwise?
The issues we are facing are deep seeded and can not be fixed through one means alone. It will take our churches, our schools, our businesses and our families to unite. It will take prayer, honest conversation, education, legislation, a dismantling of systems of oppression that have been built for centuries; but most importantly it will require each of us to start with the man or woman in the mirror. It requires us all to begin by assessing our own heart, our own biases, and acknowledging what part we play in the problem and in the solution. It takes true confidence and courage to be the change we want to see in the world. If we want to see change in our world, it starts with us.
It's your move.
