This month, we remember…that 400 years ago, enslaved Africans were sold and forced onto boats to land here and work here without pay or basic human rights; on what would become the United States.
We struggle still, to become “United” and to overcome divisions that threaten to separate us. Divisions that were created in this de-humanizing of our brothers and sisters still exist. Working to end bigotry and hatred and the undervaluation of human life and labor is an ongoing battle.
What can we do to overcome? What can we do to build everyone up? What can we do to love our fellow human? Keep working towards the goal. It doesn’t end because we’re not as barbaric as we were hundreds of years ago. The barbs exist in our words and in our actions. Love others, be wise and do good on the earth, for all. Each day.
