JFSJ + PJA = SUPPORT THE HOME CARE WORKFORCE NOW!

I just added my signature. Will you? -- "America's 1.7 million home care workers stand on the threshold of earning the same federal labor protections that most workers take for granted – and just five minutes of your time can make the difference. On December 15, 2011 President Obama proposed a rule change that, if approved, will finally provide some measure of justice to home care workers who have long been exempted from minimum wage and overtime laws. Right now the U.S. Department of Labor is accepting public comments on the proposed change, which would correct part of a longstanding legacy of devaluing the work of women and African Americans." -  http://www.jewishjustice.org/expand-fair-labor-protections-home-care-workers

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
