So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Sunset is an angel weeping / Holding out a bloody sword

Martin Luther King Day

Today is Martin Luther King Day in the United States, our neighbour to the south. A day when it’s important to remember that systemic racism is not long past, but a recent memory. A day to remember an American who felt things should change, and took it upon himself to change them through peaceful non-violent means. A day to remember an American who led millions of Americans, and showed the world that a society that preached freedom, integration and tolerance practiced anything but.

A day to remember a life lost in pursuit of a noble cause, killed in anger and hatred.

A day for pause.
