justice

mightier than the sword

 

666 Day XLII – The proverb states “the pen is mightier than the sword” but how about the pencil. As I sharpened mine at the beginning of each day to act as “weapons” against injustice they became shorter and shorter as you can see. The power of the simple act of drawing is worth celebrating, for a picture can indeed be worth a thousand words.

Tomorrow I look forward to attending a webinar by Physicians for Human Rights on the “Family Separation and Reunification Efforts.” These are the details for those of you interested in attending if you have the time.

 

Each leaf’s a child alone and scared
Taken from the ones that cared
Kidnapped by a soulless state
That wallows in its lies and hate.

How fortunate it is that in our times
Good people exist to fight these crimes
And work to bring back love and joy
To every precious girl and boy.

8’46”


 
In memory of George Floyd whose life was celebrated today in Minneapolis in a moving memorial service that ended with 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silent remembrance; 8 minutes and 46 seconds that represented the last minutes of his life; 8 minutes and 46 seconds during which he was unable to breath. Stand in silence as I did today for 8 minutes and 46 seconds if you haven’t done so already and remember George Floyd.
