JUNETEENTH-2020 by Mussmann
June 19th, 2020
The Civil war goes on. The Black Lives Matter a movement
that never stops—the killing of George Floyd a short time
ago by a blue-suited policeman kneeling on George Floyd’s
neck (as the whole nation watched)
brings us back to these words: “I can’t breathe”
—this phrase represents the call of the Corona-19 Virus-victims
“I can’t breathe”.
Black people-people of Color-people who are Other
(all struggle to breathe in this “yet America”)
—it was 2 years until the slaves in Texas
received news that they were free—June 19, 1865.
Today we celebrate and note this day in history—
as we search for freedom and liberty for ALL.
People are still being bought and sold—slavery is alive and
well….we need reform and re-imagining.
2020 is pushing us all to think of everything
all at once—
And asking that a new way be found
—the old normal is not good enough to return to
—no not now—not never,
