Reflection on violence

Bishop Steven Charleston reflecting on the killing in Sanford Florida…

“We see the cracks once more, the deep divides between our people, color-coded distrust, acted out on dark nights, spilling over into streets of rage. The loss of any life is a sorrow, the loss of justice a crime. God help us to overcome the myth of race, the fear of one another, the hurts we inflict for no reason. Teach us to stand together in respect for human dignity. Let our kinship become a pledge no hate can subvert. Remind us that in your eyes we are all children, each unique in how we live, but all loved just the same, a seamless love unbroken.”
