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