Blood

 The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” (Genesis 4.10 NIV)

 

Too many of our black and brown people being killed,

blood being spilled for random reasons:

whistling at a white woman…

registering people to vote…

reaching for a driver’s license and registration papers in a compartment that happens to have a gun…

selling individual cigarettes…

selling CDs…

playing music in the van with friends…

walking downstairs because of a broken elevator…

wearing a hoodie, carrying Skittles and an iced tea…

not signalling a turn….

standing on a front porch…

standing on a motel balcony…BloodCryingOut.jpg

 

 

O God… how much longer do we have to deal with this!? How many more of us have to die before  #BlackLives Matter!?
