I went to a prayer vigil/walk for James Craig Anderson tonight. My husband and two youngest kids were with me. And so were hundreds of other people. As we were walking down a main street in Jackson, singing 'We Shall Overcome', I was struck by the sadness of the situation. Why in the world are we still dealing with this mess? I know racism is about as old as mankind itself, so I don't know if there will ever be a lasting solution. I do know that I don't want to be part of the problem.
What that looks like exactly, I don't know. I'm pretty sure I'll be fleshing it out here, though.
