A little bit of redemption in a sea of madness. I heard a phrase today that justice is what love looks like in public (Cornel West). Praying for systemic change and a change of heart to eradicate racism wherever it is found. Let us keep working together in whatever circumstances we find ourselves in for greater love, understanding, acceptance and inclusivity. The world can and should break our hearts but never our spirits.
