I appreciate the passion and pain that speaks out here, Mike. Seeing injustice and seeing the inertness of people who see and who live in injustice can be infuriating and can deflate our very selves.

It's important to speak out when we see and experience injustice, not only to give voice to our fury and anger but also to bear witness to those whose lives are ending in silence.

And perhaps we will find those who are like-minded but not aware of the injustice, and that can lead to allyship, connection, and change.
