You Shall Pursue

Prayers for the Martin family, the sort of prayers that the prophets prayed, with their hands, and their voices, and their feet, and their anger. The sorts of prayers that raise up justice like mighty streams. In these moments it is not enough to reach out to people suffering. It is not enough to cry for them. Weeping does not bring back our dead children. We must change the paradigm, and change it well, so that more of our children do not die. How do we do that? We do it through action, through voices raised, through voting, and protesting, and crying out.

It is not enough to pray with our voices. We must pray with our feet.
