Shock, Awe, Resistance and Replenishment
I’ve tried to write about the storming of the Capitol building, but I can’t find the words. You see, there’s no way for me to experss how I broke, just a little bit, when
White supremacists strolling through the Capitol building
brandishing that Confederate Flag,
the symbol of
a culture that demeans Black life.
I was stunned that they were shot
and not cops who once greeted protestors
with tear gas and bullets
America see Black humanity too.
So, afer I laugh/cried at this fresh round of insanity, I decided to sit still, then came across this wonderful post from Esther Armah, founder of the ‘Armah Institute of Emotional Justice.’
Words I needed to see.
Maybe some of you need to see this too.
Rest, Fam. And Hydrate.
