Listening

Listening
Hearing someone else’s point of view
Someone different from me
Some stories are so sad and make me mad
Inequality
Told she can’t swim in a pool at her own apartment complex because of the color of her skin
Separate is not equal
Less opportunity
Put in jail all too often
Knee to neck, can’t breathe
Chased down and killed while he was out jogging
How can this be in 2020?
Murdered in her own apartment in the middle of the night, guilty of no crime.

Overwhelming
Heart wrenching
What can we do?
Stand up and say enough. No more.

Change is a must.
It must happen NOW.
