NEW YORK CITY, June 19, 2020 – On this important day of Juneteenth, we should honor this historic occasion by coming together. We at Family Federation for World Peace and Unification believe that we are all the family of God. The ongoing protests that have sparked as a result of the injustices against Rayshard Brooks, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Christian Cooper, George Floyd and countless others, are a reflection of the grief that our black brothers and sisters have carried as a result of the racial discrimination that has stained our American history. This ungodly hubris has made it impossible to find lasting peace, and weakened our capacity to lead the world as One Nation Under God.
We are aware that there are many people hurting right now, tuning in to the heartbreaking social unrest around the country as a result of Mr. George Floyd’s inhumane death. It stirs up a lot of emotion and concern over our country. We pray for George and his family, and we also recognize that this senseless loss of life is a symbol of something even more fractious that still affects too many Americans today.
True Parents have spoken clearly about the sin of slavery and racism in America. It has caused untold anguish in the hearts of millions, and has hindered the work God is trying to accomplish. I am sure most of our family members might find it hard to relate to such evil because we don’t hold such thoughts within our own hearts, but we may find ourselves guilty of not recognizing that it is still afflicting so many of our dear brothers and sisters across this country. Underneath the explosion of protests we see, lies the pent up resentment from being mistreated and feeling unloved for too long. Even for those who feel it has nothing to do with them, it is heavenly if we find repentance stirring in our own hearts, because it is our brothers and sisters who are hurting.
