Days 26 and 27…Pizza, Church, and Tracy Chapman

Special thanks to my dear friend, Lance Wilder, for inspiring me today to write this.

I loved the story you shared on Facebook about the late Mr. Ilitch, who founded Little Caesar’s pizza, and now, it’s come to light, secretly helped Rosa Parks pay her rent for many years.

Here’s the link:

Thank you, Lance.

Right after I read your post, I saw another inspiring story.
This one about a church in Colorado.

Here’s the link:

In the spirit of your post, Lance, this 40-something atheist may just have to seek out a First Unitarian church this upcoming Sunday to show my support for what they’re doing.

As Tracy Chapman said so eloquently back in 1988 at that Amnesty International concert, we’re ‘Talkin’ bout a revolution’.

It starts with all of us today.

May we all show revolutionary love, kindness, and tenderness like these human beings above did.

I think Jesus, if he existed, would be moved to tears by these stories.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
