Sitting together at the dinner table last night, our family had yet another deep and heartfelt discussion on the topic of race unity. What, we asked each other, can we possibly do in addition to praying fervently for love and cohesion among people, to help further the progress toward the day in which we all become “even as one soul”?
Should we join the ardent protesters downtown on the Denton Square? How about making yard banners that say “We are all the flowers of one garden” or “Mankind is One”?
Well, my 15-year-old daughter, Tajallii, thought up the idea. First, she would choose a philanthropic organization dedicated to building bridges and healing racism, and second, she would offer her artistic services in exchange for contributions to this nonprofit.
