Thinking About The Protestors

As I hide from Coronavirus and paint flowers, I have been thinking a lot this last week about police brutality, economic disparities, opportunity, and school achievement.

I remember from the sixties what a difference the civil rights marchers and protesters made to me personally and to our whole country. Their courageous acts opened eyes and hearts and led to significant change. But over the years, we lost our momentum and seemed to be resigned to a fundamentally unfair status quo.

Now, fifty years later, massive numbers of young people are out taking a stand and marching for change. I peer at my screen and watch their acts of courage, strength, and righteousness. I see from the response of others that the protesters seem to be opening hearts and minds again. Could we, at last, be at a tipping point in America? Will we become one country with liberty and justice for all?

    Yes, I too miss the spirit of the 60’s and the civil rights. I do hope new leaders will emerge. We need them. Like yesterday.
    Stay safe.
