Heartbroken

Friends, I’m heartbroken over what is happening in Minneapolis and around the United States.

I’ve been fighting against income and education inequality as hard as I can for 10 years. Thank you to all who have helped me. I am redoubling my efforts—if I can just see past the tears in my eyes. I am wrecked.

I am also looking for hope—and I saw some today.

In Minnesota—a lot of us are Scandinavians who don’t know what to say when someone we care deeply about is overcome by grief and heartbreak.

And so what we do is, we bring food. That is happening today all over Minneapolis.

Hopes for healing and love and 5 loaves and 2 fishes in a sea of brown paper bags—after Minneapolis’ Sanford Middle School asked for 85 bags of groceries to feed students.

There are at least several thousand bags here! And traffic stacked in every direction, for blocks. (The extra will go to food shelves.) One man said he waited in line for over an hour to donate $500 worth of food and groceries.

What you can’t see in this photo is that heartfelt, heartbroken prayers—for healing and systemic change and for justice to roll down like a mighty river—are even more abundant than the bags on this sidewalk.

I believe that a good army is rising up. I believe that help is on the way.

Together, friends—let’s fight for what’s good, and beautiful, and right.

Love, Jeannie
