How many of us share similar days where we get up, navigate the obstacles of kids-to-school, commute-work-family, maybe some news or social media before dinner, baths then bed. Every morning, we say a prayer from our driveway to the end of our block, add in prayers for loved ones by the first stop sign, and close with an "Amen" before we get the school crosswalk. We also incorporate evening prayers when our children are young, but we are distracted by homework, GPA and athletic wins vs. losses when they are older.
Let's be intentional, rather than busy. Let's talk about and live our faith, yes, Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
Our Monday-thru-Fridays are unrelenting with events, happenings, this matter and that. The week seems nearly over by the time we even look up. And we should, stop and take a moment. We should lift our heads. We are so much stronger when we remember Imani (Faith), and have confidence in our people, confidence in our parents, confidence in those who would teach us and lead us.
We are a wonderful African-American / Black people. The struggle is very real, so we must hold tight to our faith in each other!
