‘HEAR OUR CRY’  Moments from The March

March 21, 2014

Over and over the question arises from whatever group I am having a conversation with, “Why?” At first blush it would seem a little crazy and for a long time it appeared that way for me, yet I heard a phrase today that lingers in my brain, “no one human being is more human than another.” I march for my fellow human beings – no matter, those I love and those I don’t.

The idea that this country that has solved so many big problems cannot solve the issue of poverty is ridiculous and undeserving of a nation that traveled to the moon.

We allow people who are poor to linger in the outer regions of our community because on some level it’s not personal to us; we are not rubbing against the scourge of poverty minute by minute, day by day.

I am marching because I was called by God to bear the burden of God’s People, to “Hear Our Cry.” I am marching because now I clearly know – one step at a time – that’s how we get this done. I will do my part, I will begin, and I will step up.

  1. “I will walk for all who bear the stain of poverty — for when one of us suffers, we all suffer. How we treat the least among us is a reflection of who we are.”

  2. Where do I find the map of your March? How does one consider marching with you part of the time? I’d love for you to have a large group! My prayers are with you!

    Lou,
    Thanks for sharing your Easter/resurrection stories. You are being raised to renewed life in your step by step-ping into the lives of the poor, and allowing others of us, not walking by your side, to walk with you, with your reflective thoughts and feelings, into more awareness of people who are impoverished. Current news has it that people who are poor in the U.S. have less income than other “devleoped” nations. Thanks for your commitment to give voice to their plight, their yearnings. May you continue to be blessed even as you are blessing for others of us! Joe
