Perhaps, like me, your gut sinks like a stone over the events of the last few weeks–precipitated by issues centuries old, accentuated by the deaths of people named Ahmaud. Breonna. George.

Thinking of only one carrying the pole on one end with the rest on the other, it made sense to spend their lives where there was greater need. read more
