The funeral for Michael Brown was streamed yesterday so I was able to watch. I caught the Eulogy delivered by Rev Al Sharpton which was really something.
Yes, It was strong.
One thing that stood out for me was when he said.. and I'm probably paraphrasing...
'Some of us are too heavenly bound.. to be any earthy good'..
Reminding us, I guess to be weary of using religion as a form of escapism.. hiding place, or even.. an excuse
'What did you do?'.. he asked
It pleases me that the family are getting support, as what they have had to deal with is beyond words. It was very moving, very sad.. and profound.
The words of this song as simple as they are, made me think. How fortunate we are to have someone willing to see the best in us, when everyone else can only see, or only desires to see.. the worst.
I said to a friend last week. I don't care which day you observe the Sabbath.. makes no difference to me.. and has little bearing on the content of your character
We have seen enough to know.
I was referring not to him in particular.. but in general. Could be anyone.
