666+132…in progress – Day L with 20 new leaves on a day that gives hope to the children separated from their parents at the US border with the signing of an Executive Order by President Biden establishing an interagency task force for their reunification. His strong words today, including “ work to undo the moral and national shame of the previous administration,” are very welcome.
666+112…in progress – Day XLIX
and a splint for my drawing-induced De Quervain’s tenosynovitis.
666+80…entering the home stretch, with the hope that home is coming soon for the children so cruelly separated from their parents at the US border by the criminal administration that in three days will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
How reassuring to learn from the interview between Jacob Soboroff and Alicia Menendez on MSNBC in which Ron Klain the Chief of Staff to President-elect Biden states that in the first 10 days he will…
“…fulfill his promises to restore dignity to our immigration system and our border policies, and start the difficult but critical work of reuniting families separated at the border.”
Watch the interview at @jacobsoboroff and make sure to read his book “Separated.”
666+…in progress – Day LXVII with 11 new leaves in the studio today wearing my black shirt in support of this first Black Shirt Day in BC. “The time is always right to do what is right” – Martin Luther King Jr
2020 look back #3
Perhaps the darkest day amongst too many dark days in 2020 was May 25, the day we witnessed George Floyd murdered by asphyxiation in real time for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. This barbaric criminal act resulted in condemnation and demonstrations across America and around the world and it highlighted many other crimes against the black population by rogue police officers including Breana Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Eric Garner and so many more.
Inspired by the words of President Obama and in support of those marching for Equality, Justice and Freedom in New York and across America today, including here in Vancouver. “Juneteenth is a time to recommit ourselves to the work that remains undone. We remember that even in the darkest hours, there’s cause to hope for tomorrow’s light.” Barack Obama, 2016.
Sadly last week on December 22nd the name of 47 year old Andre Maurice Hill must be added to the list, unarmed and shot by a white police officer in Columbus Ohio.
