Brief note on the events of the past week
I don’t often get around to posting about current events, but this time I will.
Those were human beings, every one.
Every Black victim, every cop, every protester, and even the shooter. Those were people. Every single one was somebody’s baby once upon a time. Every one of them laughed and played as a child. Every one of them has loved someone — a parent, a friend, a mentor, a lover, or a child of their own — at some point in their lives. No matter what else those people did and thought and believed during their lives, they were humans, one and all.
Every death was a tragedy.
