Jacob Blake’s mother: “We need healing”

logo Latest in a series of posts responding to the George Floyd killing logo

The news from Kenosha: two dead, more injured, invectives, firebombings, rocks, tear gas, rubber bullets, vigilantes, militia . . .

But through it all, Gadfly hears the voice of one who might justly lay claim to the title of most aggrieved:

  • We really just need prayers.
  • If Jacob knew what was going on . . . the violence and the destruction, he would be very unpleased.
  • I’m really asking and encouraging everyone . . . to take a moment and examine your hearts.
  • We need healing.
  • As I pray for my son’s healing . . . I also have been praying, even before this, for the healing of our country .
  • Take a look at your hand. Whatever shade it is is beautiful as well.
  • How dare you ask him [God] to make one type of human that looks just like you.
  • I am not just talking to Caucasian people. I am talking to everyone.
  • No one is superior to the other.
  • Please, let’s begin to pray for healing for our nation.
  • Have we been united?
  • To all of the police officers, I’m praying for you.
  • Let’s use our hearts, our love, and our intelligence to work together.
  • America is great when we behave greatly.

Still no official press conference?
