Heartsick.

Father, save us from ourselves. Rescue us from the fear and confusion that atrophies in our hearts into misunderstanding, contempt, hatred. Place in us the eyes of your Son and show us the amazing humility of our own humanity, and your boundless power for righteousness, justice and equality.

I think it's odd that this NPR article quotes the infamous "You lie!" quote in relation to the question of race but does not mention at all that the "You lie!" was a shout against providing undocumented immigrants with healthcare rights. Where's the transparency? What's not being said here?

Thanks, Jessica.

I spent a year in Selma in '95-'96 - lots of reflection to do. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and prayers :)
