Freedom. Are We There Yet?

Freedom is never free. But it's possible.

Are we there yet?

What Freedom Looks Like

When first saw the image in this blog, I immediately knew it would not only be the primary image used to represent my non-profit, but would be with me the rest of my life.

It encapsulates everything I want in my life and yours.





Absolute contentment.

No fear of my surroundings.

Freedom. And now, after hundreds of years of slavery, oppression, and inequities, people whose skin like mine has been kissed by nature's sun... people whose blood, sweat, and tears built this nation.... are celebrating the delayed but official emancipation of our ancestors. This is Juneteenth.

We honor those in our history who bled and died for freedom.

We honor those in our present day still bleeding and dying for freedom.

And we pray for a day when the blood stops flowing and our breath keeps going.

A day where brown skin is longer seen as disposable.

I don't want to just be free because of a piece of paper, I want to feel free.

I'm so grateful I have a God who makes me feel in the Spirit





absolute contentment.

No fear of my surroundings.

But he doesn't limit his capacity for freedom to the spirit.
