Today

It’s September 11th
& today, I have no words.
What in the world could I possibly say that hasn’t been said so many times before ?

You want to know the one and only thing that keeps popping into my brain this morning ?

Rodney King.
The police beaten spark of the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
Because after all the ugliness subsided, Rodney King had one, very simple question.

“People …. can we all get along?”

& as I sit here 27 years later on the 18th Anniversary of an extremely horrific day, I am wondering the very same thing.
People, can we all get along ?

Remember how we felt on September 12th and 13th and 14th …?
That feeling of unity ?
We were friends.
All of us.
Every single human being felt united in these states of America.

Where did that go ?
Why did it go ?
& when will we, as a people, learn how incredibly beautiful this life can be EVERY SINGLE DAY if we all simply choose to just ‘get along’.

I’ll be nice to you and you be nice to her and she will be nice to him
and so on and so on and so on.

It can be that easy.
It should be that easy.
It will be THAT EASY if we all merely try.

How’s about we all try today ?

Especially today.
