Living the dream…

Some people use this phrase ironically, as if to say, “I don’t have any dreams, my dreams are not my own, I don’t believe in dreams…” These folks are lost.

Other people use this phrase sincerely, as if all is good, fair, and just in the world. I don’t know if I believe them.

If you hear me say these words, I’m saying something very specific. My ancestors suffered fought and died so that I could have the life I’m living today. If I take their sacrifice for granted, if I do not acknowledge the price they paid, then the dream dies with them. Not only do I have a responsibility to live this life as best as I can, I must work to create a world where the dream endures.

That’s what today means to me.

Run for Elijah…

Run, Walk, Roll…

This is my route…you know how that goes…

I’m going to do my run for Elijah live this week. I’ll post the link to track my progress on Friday morning for anyone interested in following along. (Watch my socials…) Or, you can join me. That might be fun.

I know, running ten miles is not everybody’s idea of fun. Do what you can. The point is to #stayfocused on justice for Elijah and his family.

Let’s go.

Cops Lie…

If you don’t understand why police departments are not to be trusted, you need to listen to this:
