A child cries and dreams about nothing. It doesn't even know the reason it cries. A person is different from the next. Some babies cry for different reasons. But still, there isn't a living thing that does not cry. Crying is prayer. If no speech is available, the Spirit of God cries and prays for us. This is God.

But who are we? We are a people that is far from anything resembling God. We are a people that are crying for what we believe is right and just. We base this off of the 35 minutes we spent feeding the homeless or praying for the poor. The rest of the time, the homeless remain exactly what they are...homeless.

What does this mean? I don't know. Should we give? I don't know. But what I do know is that they should never be ignored.

Today I was running in Detroit with a friend.  We were expecting the worst as we sweated through Cass Corridor to downtown Detroit. Instead, we got normal people, who thew up a fists as we ran, symbolizing their approval. We had community. One guy even ran with us for 10 seconds.

People need love above all things. We need to give love above all things. It's a perfect match.
