We Meet Again Tour – 4 July 2018

IMG_7677The tour took a short walk, a couple of blocks uptown, and downhill, to West 125th and Broadway. There it joined Mama Ruby Sales and the Rev. Dr.  Jacqui Lewis, the founding directors of the Vincent and Rosemarie Harding Center for Social and Spiritual Restoration,  for a Mourn-in and Day of Fasting to #EndFamilySeparation.

We gathered outside the Cayuga Center where children separated from their parents at the border are reportedly held during the day.

We called for:
an end to this unjust and cruel separation
a renewal of democracy
the strength to stay on the battlefield of justice until we win

We affirmed that:
God is love
And all who abide in love
Abide in God
And God in us

We proclaimed that:
The walls that they build
To tear us apart
Will never be as strong as
The walls of our hearts
The desert is hot
But we are the rain
