I was disappointed that Kurt's was the only letter shared, but maybe
there were no others. The pandemic has created an environment that
fosters impatience and anxiety, and where people react swiftly to what
they see and experience. The subject under consideration is a struggle
for equality of economic, judicial, and social opportunity that has been
percolating since slaves were taken and used to build this country, and
indigenous people were subjected to intentional and casual genocide.
Unfortunately, we live in a time when articulate orators are a rarity,
and there are few, fewer today, who can express the angst that so many
are feeling. Three or six word slogans may be all we have, but even if
they lack the orator's finesse, they will have to due. "Black Lives
Matter"; "Get your knee off my neck", "Enough"
Does ARSC have a role in this struggle? I would say yes, but I am only
one. For those of you that may ask "why?", I say, because we are the
caretakers of history.
I am glad Kurt wrote his letter, and that Cory poked the ARSCList,
otherwise we might have another 300 years of festering pain and
anguish. I'll be dead by then. I would like to see life better for
everyone before I go.
