Sympathize: Understand My Tears

Empathy when our sisters of color cry

Anger when our sisters’ head cover is ripped off

Tears when our lesbian and Tran sisters weep

Mourning the loss of our health care

Afraid sickness and dying

Concerned about our future citizens being torn from our arms and cast into the darkness

Sympathy

One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL

Please Blink for Children

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you. Matthew 7:12 

When his child is hungry

Does Jesus give him something to eat, or

Starve his family so there are less poor people? (Tax cuts for the rich)

 

When his child is thirsty

Does Jesus give her something to drink, or

Pollute her water supply? (Keystone)

When his child is an immigrant (DACA)

Does Jesus invite him in, or

Deport him to land he doesn’t know?

 

When his child needs clothes

Does Jesus buy her clothes, or

Leave her naked in the street? (#MeToo)

 

When his child is sick

Does Jesus make sure he gets proper healthcare (CHIP and ACA)

Or leave him to die?

 

When his child is in prison

Does Jesus come to visit her, or

Forget his child? (criminal injustice)

Matthew 25:31-46
