From Been in the Storm So Long:

A Litany Of Restoration

If, recognizing the interdependence of all life, we strive to build community, the strength we gather will be our salvation.

If you are black and I am white,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If you are female and I am male,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If you are older and I am younger,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If you are liberal and I am conservative,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If you are straight and I am gay,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If you are Christian and I am Jewish,
IT WILL NOT MATTER.

If we join spirits as brothers and sisters,
the pain of our aloneness will be lessened?
and that does matter.

IN THIS SPIRIT, WE BUILD COMMUNITY
AND MOVE TOWARD RESTORATION.

Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley
