Day 2, Briefly

This is the verse of the day from Sojourners:

See how they conceive evil,
and are pregnant with mischief,
and bring forth lies.
They make a pit, digging it out,
and fall into the hole that they have made.
Their mischief returns upon their own heads,
and on their own heads their violence descends.

- Psalm 7:14-16

I certainly hope the city's mischief returns upon their own heads. Because the city's witnesses today (all police) was lies, lies, and more lies.

It's a difficult spiritual struggle to sit through that.

I definitely have a cold. Tanking up on Emergen-C and vitamins.

Long day. Finished at 8pm.

City rested. Our side moved to dismiss due to lack of evidence but judge didn't buy it.

We presented one witness.

Tomorrow I testify, and my Anishinabe brother on trial with me. I go first.

Should be a verdict tomorrow. Some positive signs from the jury but still hard to say which way anything is going.

Gonna go shower off the ick of the day, and go to bed.

Love to all.

  2. It's amazing how pertinent Sojourners can be, isn't it?
    Everything crossed for you.

  3. We pray that we all may be comforted in our suffering and made whole.
    When we are afraid, give us courage;
    When we feel weak, grant us strength;
    When we are afflicted, afford us patience;
    When we despair, fill us with hope;
    When we feel frantic, help us be still...and know.

    Love abounds Anne!
