Quarantine- a state, period, or place of isolation.
For many people of color this current situation that we are facing is not unfamiliar territory, for we have always been in a state of quarantine. We have been locked up, locked out, and shut down for many moons, but for those who have been led to believe that they are superior, the world is coming to an end. It is their wake up call that they were not expecting, for they get up and go when they please. Look around, no masks, the beaches are full, the stores are packed, and people are still dying! It is their natural instinct to do as they please, for it is inherited. Racism is a social virus that has been spread intentionally for years without a moral vaccine, but I guess they are still working on that one. As time goes by this too shall pass, as long as we keep our faith in the a Lord and use our prayers for added strength, we will continue to endure.
“WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER TO GET THROUGH THIS!”
“We?” No one was expressing “WE” before this began, for at the time, “WE” did not include “US!” The world only cares about our well being now because it could possibly effect theirs, and to be honest, if we were the only ones to become unhealthy because this virus, there would be no vaccine.
“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.”
