The Civil Rights Act of 1964 provided individuals and people groups protection from discrimination. The laws enacted in 2020 in response to the coronavirus removed all protections under the law. As long as there is a "pandemic," executive orders bypass accountability and oversight. We are no longer a nation governed by the people. Those who are the most vulnerable have no voice, are silenced, and their future hope is being destroyed in this present darkness.
When you speak up for someone who cannot speak for themselves you are displaying love.
My heart broke when the pandemic hit, and families were torn apart by the loss of loved ones. Now, a year later, the family is continuing to suffer under forced mandates that demand compliance over all else. In all areas of life change is happening, and it's happening so fast our heads are spinning. It's like one day I was enjoying riding on the merry-go-round of life, and someone increased the speed. I feel like I'm in a horror film where bodies are flying off in all directions while others are holding on for dear life. In the middle of it all, the one who controls the speed is laughing all the way to the bank.
If I’ve never held you up, how could I ever let you down?
I want to awaken from this nightmare called life. I want to be able to plan a future with my grandchildren instead of fear for their lives. I want to focus on helping others, but as the need exponentially grows, it is overwhelming. If you are fearful, face your fears and fight against that which is threatening you. If you feel hopeless, find others who can give you hope. Neighborhoods need to pull together to support each other. We must look to each other for comfort, encouragement, and support. We have entered a time of difficulty and it won't be easy to go it alone. Rally family around you. Talk to friends, go to church, gather in groups filled with love. Support each other in the workplace, no matter your beliefs. One day you'll find yourself the target of discrimination wishing someone else would speak up for you.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
