I will be back

I know I haven't posted anything for a while. The truth is that I have no heart for it, no spirit for it. It's two days short of four weeks since my wife died and I'm still finding it hard to do more than make my way through the days.

It won't always be that way; I know - even though there are too many moments when I don't see how - but I know that people do get through this, that people do manage to get on with their lives, to again feel the passion about the injustices that moved them before.

So I know I will be back at some point. But that point is not yet here.

For the moment, I will offer this: Three posts selected sort of randomly from the past couple of years about police violence against African-Americans.

From June 2017 -
From October 2017 -
From June 2019 -

And one other thing: I hope, I can't help but hope, I hope even though that same hope has been lost so many times before, I hope that this time will be the time that we as a nation, as a society as a whole, more particularly the time that the rest of us face up to the reality of the day-to-day racism, the built-in racism, the systemic degradations and denigrations visited on our non-white brothers and sisters.

So despite my well-earned cynicism, I still hope. Change is in the air. Carry it on.
