The Long Road Home…

“God moved on my spirit and he said, ‘The hearts of the people must be changed. We have to take the long road home. He didn’t say ‘no’. It’s (overturn of Roe) gonna happen.” Alveda King, 2006

It seems like yesterday when I spoke these words to a student group. The road is long, with many a winding turn (that’s from a song: HE AIN’T HEAVY, HE’S MY BROTHER.) The babies are our brothers and sisters. We have to vote for life this fall.

Friends, don’t shun the voting booths this fall. People died so we can vote. Not just Blacks; women and others have had to fight in order to vote. Don’t give naysayers the opportunity to say that we never deserved the right to vote in the first place. We can vote our convictions. We can write in or vote for those on the ballot. We also must vote down the ballot for other candidates.

Be wise, don’t cast away your vote or your confidence in God.
