Up giving thanks for another day this AM. Anger, disappointment and disgust still there, but thankful. I grew up with family who fought for our Civil Rights. Worked for and with many of the movements legacy leaders — Andy Young, Hosea Williams, Marian Wright Edelman, John Lewis — I am STUNNED in 2014 I’m still having “rights of passage” dialogues with my children about how to live as safe as possible while black/brown in America. Still have to worry when they are away from me, no matter how old they are. Still have to overcome my inner fears when I tell them to stand for what they believe and DEMAND they get it. What a deep, unshakable legacy of hate and oppression this country has inherited. And how cruel the perpetuation of it is. SURREAL.
Ferguson. Mike Brown. Justice? #INDICTAMERICA
