Tonight it’s late and I am grieving for my country

At least two men, George Floyd and  Ahmaud Arbery, lie dead in the past several months, murdered by white men for no other reason than that they were black. And I know anger isn’t the answer and yet I’m angry. So angry. What is wrong with us? And where are our leaders who can bring us hope and show us the way out of this mess we have made of things?

Then I was reminded of a speech that Robert F. Kennedy gave in Indianapolis shortly after he learned of the death of Dr. King. For a variety of reasons we have not lived up to his words. But we can start here and now as a country to change, and demand justice, and do what we are asked by one much wiser than me asked us to do, “Love one another as I have loved you.”
