Preaching to the chior Tony.  Remember I'm the wife of a former cop and the mother to an active cop.  You don't want to get me started on the other side of the story.  But, there is truth on both sides. I get what PEACEFUL, RESPECTFUL protesters are trying to say.  They have a right to say it, and the other side needs to listen.   The poem seemed appropriate for the form and its origin.  It is the truth behind the movement and I have heard it and I respect it.  IMG_0263.JPG         My son at a Black Lives Matter March

It is difficult to not resonate with BLM's message.  But there are other forces who seem to be involving themselves in all kinds of otherwise legitimate conversations.  I confess that I can't tease out who is Antifa, who is a misguided zealot, and who is just an opportunistic looter.  And who else may be in there muddying the water?  2020 shook me in more ways than can be explained by a 100-year pandemic.

Thanks for the photos, Judi.  That has to be part of the message, too.  I salute the good guys in uniform.
