Many of the images I am seeing from Charlottesville, Virginia are an example of just how far we still need to go as a country. Race and hate are still two huge issues that have become headlines in our Nation. All of this mayhem started when a  a group of white nationalists — including neo-Nazis, skinheads, and Ku Klux Klan members took to the streets of Charlottesville for the Unite the Right rally. The gathering was in response to the city’s plans to remove a Confederate statue from a local park. The white nationalists were met with protesters, which led to utter violence in the streets. This later led to the governor of Virginia to declare a state of emergency. Saints, it is time to pray, get informed and find a way to get involved.
