Version 2.037

We buried George Floyd in Houston, TX. Until recently he was a nobody, whose life was not perfect; today we remember him for the imperfection of his death. Not to say that he is the only one, but he is part of an increasing crowd of one-too-many. I am hopping that this is, indeed, the straw that broke the camel's back because, if so, it means that things are about to change for the better. They will not change for the best, but they will be better and better is worth fighting for.

There will be casualties because that is the history of the United States: that is how the country reinvents itself, in order to continue its path toward a more perfect union. This is not any different from many times before. The only ones who are different are the people of whom we ask the sacrifice, but change is in the air and we must rise to the occasion. Justice must be served.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

~ Preamble to the United States Constitution
