…And life goes on for the free…

Their history need not matter. All reasons for discord, glossed over. The prayers of the descendants of those on whom ‘freedom’ was built, can only grow.  The work for root causes to finally be addressed set back. Maybe for only a step, maybe for more.

The voiceless and the weaker were at the window, for a short while. They reflected back what was really under the covers.  Too much truth was unbearable and the shutters were pulled again.  Truths were too unwieldy and the victimizers quickly became the downtrodden for having to feel the consequences of their own centuries.

Suddenly feeling any of the oppression of those centuries for the whole of five minutes that was their ordeal and they, the free, could no longer go on.

Is it true then, that when it comes to real equality, the ones who are ‘more equal’, will always and ever refuse any of the pain of the lessers? It is real then, that you can only be good and noble as long as you aren’t required to pinch it in for any amount, in any truly changing and meaningful way?

I know how that looks to the people who held up the mirror for those minutes.

Yes, life is back to normal for the truly free…




About Blog Woman!!!

Once in a while I can rock a thought. I simply believe in what I stand up for. I'd most like people to know that surviving the trials of mountains and monsters is more than resilience - it’s a path to your destiny. On a mostly weekly basis I throw out a grab-bag of facts, ideas or creativity; like a box of chocolates wrapped in ribbons of occasional profanity.... In other words, it's my party I can fun if I want to. So, waddya say, can we talk?
