I’ve thought a lot about writing a long entry here on my support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent protests. I even began to write a few things—most of which included words about heartbreak and anger over police brutality, systemic racism, and our country’s divisive leader.
But every time I keep coming back to this verse. And I keep thinking that until we all (especially those who are white like myself) say let me help carry your burden, all those things will remain. Until we say, what breaks your heart breaks my heart, nothing will change.
Justice is about compassion for those who are hurting and action to change that. I have a lot of work to do. We all have a lot of work to do together. Now is the time to carry one another’s burdens.
