Juneteenth…

“Juneteenth” is described as  “a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States… Celebrated annually on the 19th of June throughout the United States.

The significance…Emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy…

Juneteenth is also know as Freedom Day…Jubilee Day…Liberation Day…Emancipation Day…

Freedom means having the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance…

Jubilee is a special anniversary of an event, especially one celebrating twenty-five or fifty years of a reign or activity…

Liberation is the act of setting someone free from imprisonment, slavery, or oppression; release…

Emancipation is the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation…

Today, I’m thinking about the 1,653 Black people who died at the hands of police in America between 2014 and 2019, just to pull up the numbers…however, these killings including those by private citizens who are not of color…have been going on since Slavery began in America… 2020 has continued the horrific practice of taking Black lives…

Today, I’m thinking about Rayshard Brooks, 27…George Floyd, 46…Breonna Taylor, 26…Atatiana Jefferson, 28…Aura Rosser, 40…Stephon Clark, 22…Botham Jean, 26…Philando Castille, 32…Alton Sterling, 37…Michelle Cusseaux, 50…Freddie Gray, 25…Janisha Fonville, 20…Eric Garner, 43…Akai Gurley, 28…Gabriella, Nevarez, 22…Tamir Rice, 12…Michael Brown, Jr., 18…Tanisha Anderson, 37…Robert Fuller, 24…Malcolm Harsch, 38…Ahmaud Arbery, 25…Now Google and Wikipedia pages outlining the details of lives cut short for being Black…in America…

Juneteenth…Maybe someone forgot to tell those who took their lives…that they were free…that they were liberated…that they were emancipated…about three centuries ago…

Let us celebrate Juneteenth today…Praying…that one day, in the very, very near future…we can celebrate the true meaning of Juneteenth.
