Slave gravesite in New York City
“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU:
The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan.
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”
Literally, and daily.
yo. that last sentence hits you in the face like a brick.

Please remember during your morning prayers to say something for not only the brave men and women who serve selflessly everyday, putting their lives on the line, for our freedom but for the families who are left behind. If you know someone who is in the military please take a second every day, week, even month to check on the family members holding down home while their loved ones are front line fighting over seas. Those who serve sacrifice so much for us to have the freedom we know and love so let’s be sure we show them and their families support as much as possible.
