It isn't often that I will admit to feeling lost. That certainly doesn't mean I don't feel lost... but actually admitting that I am feeling is lost... that takes some doing. Tonight I feel lost.
Reading about the grand jury's decision in Ferguson makes me wonder if we can ever really look at the divisions in this country with any level of honest inquiry. I feel lost when I look at the massive amount of hate and vitriol that people are spilling over with... so much fear and anger and mistrust. Our fear of other... our fear of what someone else might be or might do... is pathological.
I could go on. I have a lot I want to say about police violence, about fear of Islam, about racism, about class issues, about violence in general. Not tonight. For tonight it is enough for me to feel lost and to just sit with that feeling.
