Today is a big anniversary for those who fight for civil rights. On this day in 1954 the US supreme court handed down its’ famous decision in Brown v. Board of Ed. Separate was not equal. So we celebrate today that big step moving forward the cause of civil rights for all. Sadly we still have a ways to go. We still have situations where Don Imus and Michal Richards will make the most obscene comments. Sadly we need to all acknowledge our own participation in our attitudes towards those who are “other” for us. We were all raised in environments where that is a piece of who we are. So let us today seek to celebrate freedom for all of God’s children.
On another note –
While I prayed this morning I had a prayer spontaneously call out of me.
As best as I can retell it – This is what it was-
Thought I would share. Pray for those who need it today!
