Responding to the Tragic Shooting in Buffalo

Black Lives Matter.

We mourn the lives of these precious souls murdered this weekend in Buffalo, as well as those injured: Roberta A. Drury, Margus D. Morrison, Andre Mackneil, Aaron Salter, Geraldine Talley, Celestine Chaney, Heyward Patterson, Katherine Massey, Pearl Young, Ruth Whitfield, Zaire Goodman, Jennifer Warrington, Christopher Braden.

May the memory of those lives lost be for a blessing.

May America eradicate the hateful ideology of white supremacy and build a country and a world where all people can live in freedom, dignity, and safety, and be honored and cherished as God’s creatures.
