    Thank you for this.

  • Lynne Maureen Hurdle

    This is a beautiful prayer. It acknowledges so much and speaks sincerely from the heart. This is what this country needs to start healing this huge conflict. Let us open the door to conversation about this.

  • Laura Moore

    Dear Marianne,
    I really would like to thank you for your love and compassion for the African American population. You have displayed such Grace and strength in presenting your views concerning the mistreatment of African American. You are so regal and rare, I can’t say that I’ve ever heard such authentic compassion being expressed, and you are truly a blessing!

    Why are you racist? My grandfather’s grandfather’s grandfather was kidnapped as a teenager in Aberdeen, Scotland and sold as a slave to a sea captain who sold him to a merchant in Philadelphia. Yes, I am white, blacks were not the only slaves sold by their countrymen.

  • Laila Bailey

    And because blacks were not the only slaves sold by their countrymen, what? What is your point? This is a beautiful, moving, heartfelt prayer of a woman who has been deeply impacted by a particular form of injustice. At one point or another, we all come to grips with the tremendous weight of certain injustices…domestic abuse, child sex slavery, etc., and we feel an overwhelming burden to express how we feel. Marianne is using her personal blog to express her personal views on a singular topic – in this case, an apology to African Americans. I would never aim to take away from the validity and pain of your ancestor’s experience. However, you have chosen an inappropriate forum to express your commentary. Give Marianne the grace to express how she feels. As adults, we have to learn to accept and understand the hurt/pain others might feel without making it “all about us” individually.

  • Anastacia

    Dear Marianne, your prayer is very thoughtful. God bless you. Stay encouraged! We shall overcome!

    Many years ago (over 25 years) I remember going to a lecture by Marianne. In this auditorium in Washington DC, full of over 100 people of many different ethnicities, colors, etc, Marianne did something I will NEVR forget. She had all of the African American persons stand and then she had persons not of African American origin stand next to these people. She then said the prayer of Apology. We then said our own words asking for forgiveness from these people whose ancestors had been so brutalized and treated terribly. At the end I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. And it was the first time I ever realized how much my ancestors and I were responsible for slavery of another race we saw as less. How can anyone be less when we are all created in the image of Creator? I am so glad to see it in print here because I am a teacher of nursing students and want to share it with my students. Thank you Marianne for bringing to light something few Americans ever think about.
