Let's Find the Solution Through Love

In one part of town a black father feels frustrated and resentful when he compares the run-down, overcrowded, ill-equipped school his son attends to the modern school four miles away that white children attend. How can his son acquire the good education he needs?

Meanwhile a white mother in a middle-class neighborhood worries that if her daughter is bused to the inner-city school, the child will be subject to physical danger and verbal abuse—not to mention an inferior education.

The segregation situation looked hopeless to me as long as I viewed it from a human standpoint. I could see no harmonious solution. But then I turned to God in silent contemplation of His love for each of His children. I was immediately reminded of an individual racial problem I solved on my first teaching job.
