Now that I have your attention. On my walk yesterday this came up on my playlist. (Don't judge!). And the chorus just hit me hard. For several reasons.
Is this the tipping point? Can it reach a level that it impacts law, real change and elections (local, state and national)? George Floyd is not a hero, he is not a martyr, he is a victim. It’s not about him, it’s about the 8:46. And to quote my pastor from yesterday, “It’s pain, wrapped around pain.”
I know what you are thinking. There is no joy in this. But in trying times, there is also Joy. Stay with me here. I would like to share the Joy of the last couple of weeks. (seriously!)
So it's our 28th anniversary today. If you read my earlier post this week, you know what we are NOT doing together. But as I sit here this morning, my wedding vows came into my head. And was thinking how they look, today with Covid-19 and "Stay In Place/Stay Safe" Order in effect.
Blinded By The Light may just be one of the best movies of 2019. It's one of those movies that "lifts you". It's a movie that's good for the soul.
I don't at all. I don't care where "you land" on this issue. I don't want to hear what you think. But I can't stand by quietly.
