God directed Eziekiel to prophesy to bones that had no life.  The command was to speak to the bones so they might live.  The year 2015 represents the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery and the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act – both steps addressing injustices faced by Blacks-- named and unnamed.  Yet today the struggle continues and God directs us to look at the faces, remember the names, commit to the promise and breathe life for the slain.
