I wrote this a while back, and what's important to me can't be important to everyone. However, it's extremely sad that we often ignore issues that need to be "dealt" with! Actually, it infuriates me! If something like racism is deemed 'too heavy', some people just throw in on the back burner, pretending it doesn't exist. That's exactly WHY I wrote this piece when I did. I was so affected by what I saw that I HAD to write. Is it because we just don't have the answers? Is it because we just don't care? Are we THAT desensitized? I don't know. I just don't. The only thing I DO know is that I CARE, get upset, and MUST use whatever platform I have to speak out in the hope of making even a tiny difference somewhere- to someone. I have to believe others care, too. If they don't, boy are we headed for even more trouble.
