In the wake of Charleston, will we step up and do what we can to advance freedom and justice FOR ALL? We are all part of the equation, not mere bystanders observing the nation coming apart at the seams, with the political, religious, racial and economic chasm widening. Will each of us speak out against hatred, gun violence, and intolerance? Will we vote? Will we reach out a hand to help the very poor (and working poor) in our communities? Will we step out of our social milieus to encounter–in a positive way–people of other races, religions, political orientations and economic situations? Each of us–each in his or her own small way–is part of the equation.
