afire with color
who don’t see
to all of us.

Notes: Can anyone be indifferent after watching a person being murdered, handcuffed, frightened, with a uniformed knee on his neck? He was pleading “I can’t breathe.” I can imagine but maybe not fully understand the fear and rage of people of color who watched that video of George Floyd, since I am not a person of color. But I can speak out against what happened — murder is a crime against all of us, against life itself, and we have to stand against it. Let’s do that from a place of peace rather than violence.
