As Nelson Mandela says:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
In this time of trial, may the peace of the Lord fill our hearts with love. May the solace that’s created give us all the courage, each in our own way, to act, speak out and eradicate systemic racism from our culture.
