Every time I have sat down to write this post, I have struggled to find the words.
A woman was killed. She sounded like a nice person. I didn’t know her. She was younger than me and probably had a bright future.
It’s sad, but not shocking as it was only a matter of time. Actually, I thought it would happen sooner.
A lot of white people are being stupid about it.
When I was a child, I used to wonder why wars happened at all. I used to think the two sides should just talk things over and make some agreed upon concessions then live and let live.
I’m not a child anymore, but I’ve always seen this as an option.
Some don’t believe that option exists and prefer bloodshed.
There’s a movement in Charleston, South Carolina by people on both sides agreeing to debate openly rather than taking to the streets with weapons.
Anyway, this isn’t a political blog and I have no intention of turning it into one.
I hope they can set an example that brings about peace.
Guid cheerio the nou,
