We are faithful people who fear the incoming presidential adminsitration because of direct threats to our bodies, the bodies of friends, and the body politic of our nation. As a result, we are fasting on Friday, January 20, 2017.
It is a fast of mourning, of purification, of justice-seeking, of supplication. It is a fast meaning what we want it to, but for the sake of everyone.
Friday will be a good day because we will make it so.
