Hold On

Hold on

Hold on

Keep your hand on the plow, hold on

Today, the words sung and made famous by gospel singer, and social and racial justice activist, Mahalia Jackson resonated.

It can be all too easy to get swept-up in the satisfaction over the verdict concerning the murder of George Floyd.

Guilty. Guilty. Guilty.

Why not? After a COVID-filled year of isolation, frustration and death atop years of justices delayed and denied, why not?

Hunger can cause one to view even the smallest morsel as a veritable feast, and desert mirages can prove fatal. Only time and travel will tell.

Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black teenage girl, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Columbus, Ohio, after she called 911 for help when a group of “older kids” threatened her, according to her family.

Keep your hand on the plow, hold on.

I know my robe’s gonna fit me well,

I tried it on at the gates of Hell.

Keep your hand on the plow, hold on.
