    “Nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

    In discussions about racism in America with my dear and late friend, Angela, she once expressed her disbelief that white Americans would ever be able to regard blacks as equal human beings. I respected her openness and honesty. Yet, it saddened me to realize the immensity of the divide among our species. Only as one – male and female, black and white and in-between – can we survive as a species.

    Meanwhile, the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ transmits shock waves of American-style freedom and democracy across distant lands.

      It’s all horrible. I wonder if the summer heat will bring things to a boil. I can’t imagine people will accept Trump Administration actions, no matter how positive the media tries to spin things.
