When you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something, to do something. Our children and their children will ask us: ‘What did you do? What did you say?’~ John Lewis
May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships, so that we may live deep within our hearts. May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that we may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger, and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.“A Non-Traditional Blessing” by Sister Ruth Marlene Fox, OSB
