@MaraGay : "I think that what we're witnessing right now is a movement for justice."
After witnessing the collision of two oil tankers underneath the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971, John Francis (b. 1946) stopped using motorized transportation for 22 years. He later took a 17-year long vow of silence to listen, learn, and grow.
The devastation to American society that we are witnessing in real time, one could argue, could only have happened at the present moment.
To the best of my knowledge, as I write this, Joe Biden has not condemned the violence and arson and looting the nation is witnessing. This appears to be some kind of perverse political calculation. Shameful.
