“Have Mercy” was born out of pain and a desire to never forget the murder of George Floyd by law enforcement. Mr. Floyd died May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on his neck for 9 minutes while he was handcuffed on the ground, begging for his life. Begging for breath!
This work represents pain, frustration, and a desire for justice and healing. It is a prayer. A prayer for Mr Floyd, the end of racism, the opening of hearts and the healing of old wounds. I pray that there is not a child left in this country that is afraid to live,breathe, run, or walk in their neighborhood. I pray that I never again see someone begging for his or her life and that we can see one another the way that God sees us. This is a prayer that my friends in the African American community feel the love we are sending their way. May we love and care for one another without judgement- PERIOD! We are all children of God. Let’s not forget and have mercy, give grace and show LOVE!
