Why I Need the Resurrection

In response to the prompt: In 100 words or less, write “Why I Need the Resurrection.”

I need the resurrection

because a father didn’t live to see his son’s wedding

because I pushed the “code” button myself when my Mom was unresponsive in the hospital

because many still wonder if their stones will ever be rolled away

because illnesses still invade the bodies and brains of those we love

because a Chicago mother lost all four of her children to gun violence

because I’m in an interracial marriage, yet still longing for equality for all

because we are called to witness it and tell others about it, especially amid the ash heaps,

I need the resurrection
