On The Eve of The 50th Anniversary of The March on Washington

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, August 23, 2013

There are moments when prayer, reflection and meditation will calm ones spirit, provide focus to ones journey, and create balance in ones life. As we move to the eve of the 50th Anniversary of The March on Washington we are at such a moment. While significant gains have been made, the lingering vestiges of racial divide are still deep. The unequal distribution of wealth is wide. Access to education is still an impediment to many people. Unchecked violence is tearing at the very fabric of our society. Too many people are incarcerated for minor offenses. Too many homes suffer from the effects of broken relationships and deferred dreams. One can astutely say we have marched one step but have moonwalked and reversed the hard fought gains won.

What do we do and where do we go from here?

I believe we have to rediscover the power of prayer and the discipline of a faithful walk with God. We have to experience once again the depth of true relationships and the eternal value of love. We have to believe in the truth of open and honest communication. We have to reconnected the generations and share stories and values that have been endearing. We have to fully participate in the creation of sound public policy and electoral politics. We have to vote with the determination that there is something to vote for.

Finally we have to live so God can use us at any time and place!
