@RevEverett on #BostonStrong: (Someday) The Entire City, That Is

A powerful recollection from the Rev. Laura Everett, the Executive Director of the Mass. Council of Churches:

This past Friday night at St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church on Warren Street in Roxbury, I joined about 100 people, mostly from Boston’s predominantly black neighborhoods to pray for all those who have suffered violence in the year since the Boston Marathon bombing.  We prayed hard. We sang fiercely. The collection was taken up to pay for the funeral for a young man in the neighborhood who had just been killed. A Mother asked, “Where is our One Fund? Why does his death mean less than any other death? What is my son’s life worth?”

Read it all here.  It’s worth your time.
