As you know, I normally don’t post anything political here. My blog brings happiness… at least I hope it does, lighthearted fun, and the occasional rant. But watching the news the past few days has been heartbreaking, and I felt the need to say something. Let me back up for a minute though, as that first sentence is not quite right… I’m still not going to post anything political, because the anguish of unjust killings and the heartbreak of deep-seated racial injustice is a human rights issue, not a political one. I will not presume to speak on behalf of the black community, but I just wish to express my solidarity, for whatever that’s worth. Enough is enough. Hell, enough was more than enough 50 years ago, 100 years ago, 200 years ago. We need to do better. We must do better. There are more eloquent writers than me tackling the issues of oppression and the marginalization of our fellow humans and sharing their words with the world right now – we need to listen. We need to change. We need to fight for change. When our fellow humans are hurting – and dying – from offenses against human rights, it falls on all of us to fight for change. When we see injustices so great that our silence implies support, we need to speak out. Find your voice and use it.
