trying to be quiet

how is our future held? with what intentions? and by whom?

it is true my spirit has been threatened by the harsh reality of recent events and happenings. it is true another four years of bush represents a scary and possibly nightmarish future. it is true the nypd are targeting time’s up! and the cycling community–true that i witnessed violent arrests and spewed hate at the cops who i believe to be evil. and true too that i cannot continue to confront the state so directly for fear of my physical and emotional well being.

so the progressive community in this country has been challenged and our work will be more difficult. the future is dark (Skills Draft anyone?) and uncertain. we will share the burden of this future, if we are to survive.

don’t forget to breathe.
