160. Justice Rally for Trayvon
Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.
DR Martin Luther King
This country has seen some dark days. Darker days than the darkest days you might imagine. Days where muffled cries were drowned out by laughter or in more menacing ways.
Cries for sanity. For thoughtfulness. For justice. For fairness. For reason.
For a sliver of hope during a seemingly never-ending storm of hopelessness.
Let’s be clear, I’m not in the best of moods as I write this post. And I don’t want to be. Not today. Today is a day to be fucking mad!
Pissed off! Righteously indignant. Frustrated!
The type of anger that makes you grab your car keys and jump in your car when there’s nowhere to go. Because you KNOW something needs to be done, and you just want to be somewhere to do it!
Get to the point you say?
Sure. But I won’t rehash what happened to Trayvon. I just would rather not.
What’s important is this: There are thousands of people heading to Washington DC this Saturday to say something about it. To have their voices heard. To be counted among those people that won’t CAN’T remain seated when it’s time to stand up!
