leaving so many out.. there are so many (my mind goes blank in the enormity) – in so many sectors/realms.. (will add later.. or not)

reminds me of the session in the atlanta church after the brown decision.. they asked people to share questions/solutions.. (after a couple of hours of selected/scheduled speakers – who obviously have shared their voice before.. so began letting them share late into the night).. and most all of them passionately shared their personal story/struggle. we are swimming in personal struggle.. what can we learn from that. the countless voices of personal tragedy.. so much – that we are not listening to..

Too many asking protests not be disruptive. That’s the entire point! We’re here to interrupt the status quo, not plan around your brunch.

Protest is as much about the visibility of the unseen and the voices of the unheard as it is about the disruption of normalcy. #Ferguson

See, the space of/in protest has allowed people access to gifts that have laid dormant for so long. Protest has awakened so much. #Ferguson

After watching the moving performance of “Be Free” on Letterman, I decided to cover it my own way.

I always tell people, I write almost everyday, but most of it never sees the light of day(the irony).

With as many injustices as there are in the world, to make others feel guilty for not rallying behind your cause is naive and a bit selfish.

this message is fractal-ly fitting for compulsory school.. no? and for… so many things in life that we protest about – loudly, silently, .. in multiple ways.
perhaps we come together.. over a problem deep enough to matter to all of us. one that we actually have a new means to solve/practice/model.. turning protest into daily/hourly conversation/communication…
there’s got to be a better way..
but today’s a different day..
you and me could make that change..
we better start today..   – Michael Franti

I worry about how conversations re: money have changed people since August.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/deray/status/552358603

And I worry immensely about the “I’ve been doing this for 20 years” crowd that enters the space and attempts to control. I don’t like it.

“What do you hope to accomplish with this protest,” I asked a 13-year-old girl marching in Staten Island, N.Y., last August, protesting the police killing of Eric Garner. “To live until I’m 18,” the young teen, named Aniya, replied.
