Passing of an Icon – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The announcement of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg on 9/18/2020 sent shock waves across America. I prayed that God would show me a sign that he would step up and fix America immediately. And I am still waiting for that sign. No one knows what tomorrow will bring other than the sun will rise and a new day will begin.

We are 46 days out from electing a new President and I am tired and totally drained. Over the past 4 years America has become so divided. The racism that had taken a long nap woke and People of Color, especially Black men are being killed just for being Black. But when Black people stop voting, any thought of equal representation stops. And the apathy among eligible Black voters is extremely depressing. God has got to hear my prayer.

The gains of equality in voting, the right to choose, the right to marry, the right to wear your natural hair all stand to be lost. The current leaders in America are only looking out for people who look like them and are in the same income bracket. The truly don’t care about the average American. God has got to show me a sign.

I won’t give up, nor will I give in (to paraphase John Lewis) but it is getting so hard to put on the armour of determination. It is harder to believe that God will step in and save America, but I will not give up hope or my belief that there is a God and he will not forsake those that have faith. God I am begging you to step in, give me a sign, show me that you will fix America; show me that People of Color “YOUR PEOPLE” will survive. And God PLEASE let it rain in California, Washington, and Oregon. God PLEASE HEAR MY PRAYER, PLEASE.

This is my Thought for Today.
