Channel the grief into anger and action. Sign every petition, call your faith leaders, and contact your legislators.

Channel the grief into anger and action. Sign every petition, call your faith leaders, and contact your legislators. There are a few petitions that are moving faster, but it's still a bit early to gauge which one is "the one." I'm driving colleagues to sign the PICO network clergy call, and the moveon petition seems to be gaining steam. But my advice, fwiw, is to fire on all cylinders for the next week, trying to end the trend of "flash-in-the-pan" activism and actually tip the scale toward progress.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
