As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
After taking the time to reflect upon my previous writings, scholarly / academic endeavours, and even after the efforts made after formally belonging to any institution, I understood how much has been written about the issues of immigration, the undocumented, the hardships, and hurts that continue to take place against the Hispanic / Latino populations. It goes without saying that there is much work to be done, if minority and majority populations truly want to be able to live side by side. In love and harmony. To be able to have differences and similarities, and still remain in a state of understanding one another. But even in a state of knowing, when the truths have surfaced in our conscious awareness, we realize that when it is time to rise or even fall, there is a timing: such as God's timing. We could even say that the work of revealing, researching and looking for truths, solutions, resolutions, and to continuously improve, becomes a Godly act. Sort of like; Graduate researchers for God.
Or maybe God already knows the truth but just wants to see how us humans will sort through what we know? For the sake of helping to improve the human condition. This is why I realized that it is important to trust God's timing. As humans we are on the brink - there has been too much hurt and harm. Hispanic / Latino compromises more that just speaking Spanish. A unique minority population that continues to grow. With intersections of race, European, Indigenous, Afro - Caribbean and more. Maybe this brink - this need to act will truly reveal the character of humanity. Human nature and the ability to care.
Prayer: It is with these thoughts we pray that even in a state of knowingness, we hope and pray for all, healing for all. Minority and majority.
