"Bind Up the Broken Hearted" by Pastor Rob
broken heart stick figure
        “Lawlessness and rioting” will not be tolerated we are told definitively and authoritatively. This declaration from national leaders comes as federal troops are readied to deploy overseas? No! Federal troops are set to mobilize right here in the United States, on the verge of descending upon Kenosha, Wisconsin to disrupt peaceful protests (and not-so-peaceful gatherings). 
Why are people protesting? Another unarmed black man, Jacob Black, was shot by police officers sworn to protect the public. He was shot seven times in the back! Black civilians don’t feel protected by law enforcement. I wonder why? Could it be because of the strangling of George Floyd? Or Breonna Taylor, killed in the sanctity of her own home without even a knock on the door? Those are just the highly publicized cases, and just from 2020.
