Anticipate with joy this scenario: there will be no more weeping in the streets over African American sons and daughters, sisters and brothers lost too soon due to police brutality and white supremacy.
There will be no more African American babies who die because they were born prematurely or because their mothers’ were unable to access the proper nutrition.
People will live full life-times, no life will be cut short due to a stray bullet, mistaken identity, rap music, or skittles.
African Americans will be able to access quality, affordable housing – we won’t be charged exorbitant rent prices, sold sub-prime loans, or forced to move out of our beloved communities as kale eating, kombucha drinking neighbors move in.
We will have access to green space free of environmental toxins and pollutants so that we can grow fruit and vegetables to provide for our family and community.
Exploitative farm and agricultural policies that keep us from doing so will be long gone. African Americans will have access to employment that pays a living wage, that does not exploit our labor and does not bar us from promotions or higher paid positions because of the our race.
And God, God will hear us before we even lift our voices to call on Him.
Because remember, the tabernacle of God will be among us, and He will dwell among us in the same manner that Jesus Christ did 2,000 years ago.
No harm or manner of injustice will befall us in God’s re-creation of the world before us.
