“Rejoice with those who rejoice [sharing others' joy], and weep with those who weep [sharing others' grief].”
As I sat in the comfort of my window seat on a day such as this, while many across the globe celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, I could not help but think how grateful I am to be in this season of life, where I get to pick my seat status without the worry of being removed because of the color of my skin. In my gratitude I couldn’t help but to ponder on the many lives who don’t have that fate. The countless boys, girls, women and men bearing my same complexion fighting for a piece of freedom, a sense of belonging, fighting for what’s civically there’s!
As I prepared for takeoff, I whispered a prayer of thanksgiving, asking God to continue to show me what more can I do for peace, unity and love, it’s my prayer that we all do our part. It may not be marching, it may not be walking around singing peace and love carols, it may be strapping up, but there is a part for us all to play, it’s starts with sharing the ups and downs, the joys and grief, United for Love.
