"The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned." (Maya Angelou)
Heartbreakingly true. For too many, around the world.
Food for thought,thanks for sharing.
Maybe this time things will begin to change. I have to keep hoping.
Hopefully the awareness of other people will stick this time--I can believe that half a century after the Civil Rights movement, we're still on the first page. The writings of Ellison, Richard Wright and James Baldwin are all important voices that will hopefully be added with a new generation of authors. BlessingsWww.thepulpitandthepen.com
My heart is heavy with everything going on in the world when it comes to racial injustice.
I read that classic for Literature of Social Reflection back at university long ago. It's horrific to think how little the world has changed, but I'm hoping these protests will lead to a better world.
truly tragic, and we hope enough is enough.
HI Mario - and some more desperately sadly ... I must get out Ellison's book ... or make a plan to read it somehow. Let us have faith for the future of this invisibility and hope the world will change - I do hope so. Thanks for reminding me/us about Ellison's classic - all the best and stay safe - Hilary
