The holy day, December 29, brings about the birth and continuing rebirth of the divine beings how celebrate our human capacity for Passion, for genuine devotion, for deep care. Representing those beings is one who reminds us of that caring, and issues a call for caring with passionate longing for justice and equality.
The echoes cry
I can’t, we can’t
not in a place where being black
is seen as some sort of plague.
A place where our lives don’t matter,
a place we helped build.
A place we help make beautiful.
A place we fought and died for,
a place we love.
Give us the oxygen of love
so we can
a place where Black Lives Matter.
