I weep tonight.

I weep for the most recent victims of police gunfire. I weep for their families, friends, and communities.
I weep for the victims of the apparent sniper attacks (still ongoing as I type this) in Dallas. I weep for their families, friends, and coworkers and I weep for their community.
I weep for us all.
I weep for what we seem to have become, or what we have always been..not sure which it is.

It's not just words. I am watching tv with tears openly flowing.

5. This is far from my first time, and likely won't be my last- as much as I wish it could/would be.

7. This song is stuck in my head

It represents the hateful chaos I fear the US has become and around 3:00 is a sound that represents what I think mothers who have children of color must feel.
