A very good friend of mine just posted this on Facebook regarding Sandra Bland.
To me, one of the most haunting things about the Sandra Bland tragedy is how just another normal sunny day can so swiftly turn to darkness and death. That so quickly one could slip the dividing line between the world we see and share to one with no exit or escape.
And, most haltingly, that there are people among us who this can happen to so much more easily than others. They can sense the menace behind the quotidian, and they never know when it will loom out and grab them. Cross the river, Sandra, and rest in peace under the trees. I fear we failed you.
The more we hear about Sandra Bland, the worse it gets. It absolutely sickens me that shit like this happens in this country...
