The Color of Skin
The color of skin is good;
The color of skin is kind,
The color of skin is all kinds of love
And one is never so blind
As one who judges by a spectrum
Of black red, yellow, or white
The color of skin lives by faith
And never by sight.
The color of sin is compassionate.
The color of skin is humble
The color of skin is the caring
That is needed midst the jumble
Of all the gardens of life.
The color of skin is the peace
Brought on the wing of a dove.
The color of skin is mankind,
And God’s plan for Brotherly Love.
Diana Y. Berberian
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” — Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom,https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/2501119-long-walk-to-freedom-the-autobiography-of-nelson-mandela

A Prayer for our country
Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land may have grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
