I am in lament. Truly in lament over what has been happening at an astonishing rate in America that I can hardly keep up with the incidents and names of unarmed African Americans who are being killed. Enough is enough.
I am a person of color as an Asian American. But I don’t believe my experience even comes close to what my black brothers and sisters have to fear everyday for their own safety.
I have been asked by leading black archbishops on how to respond and I will add my voice and my strength to this movement.
For now, I cry out to the Lord using the words of Psalm 13:1-2 …
“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?”
