We shall overcome
WE SHALL OVERCOME
The gunman. I will not use his name. He has woken in me an eternal truth that comforts me.
Some are born with darker skin, gay, or are otherwise categorized outside of “normal,” I was born Jewish.
His hate for me stems from some sense that I could choose otherwise.
That I could renounce my ways. That I could be redeemed. But, I am unrepentantly a Jew.
I choose to be Jewish, just as the Jewish doctors who operated on him chose to operate on him. I choose to believe in humanity. I choose to believe the words of Zechariah 4:6. “Not by might and not by power, but by spirit alone shall all be redeemed.”
Me, like millions before me. Deep in my heart. I do believe.
WE SHALL OVERCOME SOMEDAY.
