This evening I’ve been seeing such hateful updates posted on Facebook, both before and after the Zimmerman verdict.
Zimmerman should fry!
Trayvon had it coming!
What’s wrong with Florida?
Death to whites!
THESE ARE TRUTHS: I was not there. A life was lost. Families grieve. There is anger. We don’t live in a perfect world. People make mistakes. Only God and two people REALLY KNOW what happened. Guilty people walk free. Innocent people sit behind bars. A white ambulance worker is afraid for his life. Young black males are often unfairly targeted.
How truly grateful I am, that I was not on that Jury. How truly grateful I am, that I did not have to judge. How truly grateful I am, that my children are safe this night.
My Heart Grieves…
How my heart grieves for those who have lost loved ones. How my heart grieves for the hatred in the hearts of so many. How my heart grieves for the anger and turmoil that is sure to bring more violence in the coming days.
May God have mercy on us all, and bring comfort to those in need. May He instill compassion for all, in our hearts. May we embrace all that is good, praiseworthy, lovely and virtuous...this is my prayer.
