Words and Music Mark A. Miller Film by Frank Logue
How long must we wait? A song for the times we are living in and for the Advent season written this week by Mark A. Miller and set among these powerful images by Frank Logue. It is a question that must be asked in light of the almost daily reports of racial injustice taking place in this country. No longer can any one of us sit idly by and ignore this issue. This is not an ISSUE it is LIFE and DEATH and #BLACKLIVESMATTER.
One of the events I am looking forward to this Christmas is a Christmas Concert by Sweet Honey in The Rock and at this moment in time I am reminded of the lyrics of Ella’s Song by Bernice Johnson Reagon
Until the killing of Black men, Black mothers’ sons
Is as important as the killing of White men, White mothers’ sons
We who believe in freedom cannot rest
We who believe in freedom cannot restby
