This was written by a coworker I respect, yesterday, as a heart-felt Facebook post after the first of two horrible shootings of black men by police. I asked and received his permission to share it.
Will, a veteran and active Guard member, is a cut-up, a photographer, an artist, a fan off all things science fiction/fantasy/absurd (especially superheroes), a dad, a husband, a friend, a family member, a human. When I read the post, I found it to be powerful poetry. This is his real photo, too. He is Will. He is us.
We are all responsible for the changes that must be made in American society.
