I was thinking about those children from our south, the ones fleeing gangs and drugs and horrible conditions who last year were being held on our borders in holding pens, the ones our state of Connecticut officially refused to make room for.
Where are they, I wonder? I certainly haven’t followed up. Have you?
And then Criselda sent me this: The Tragically Short Lifespan of Outrage, by John Pavlovitz. It includes this:
Maybe we do give a damn about Charleston; about the innocent victims and their families, about divided communities and historic racism, about guns and terrorism and violence and all the nasty stuff something like this slaps us in the face with.
The problem is we aren’t able to give a damn for very long any more.
And thanks, Criselda, for the link.
