‘The Young Man In The Photograph’

@3ChicsPolitico: A large crowd kneels in prayer in Milwaukee on the first anniversary of the assassination of Dr King May 5, 1969.

by jacquelineoboomer (@JOBoomr)

I saw the young man
In the photograph
Three rows in, on the right
After you pointed him out
And he wore a hoodie
On that day of days
And probably into that night
Back in May of 1969
When the people were
Commemorating the
Awful Dr. King assassination
We had all lived through
With them
The year before.

And so it was in so many ways
And so many years since
That another young man
Minding his own business
With his entire life ahead
Walked out onto the street
Away from the protection of his father
Wearing a hoodie into the night
And into the photographs in our minds
Forever.

Rest in Peace, Dr. King
Rest in Peace, Trayvon Martin
Never forgotten in the annals of history
And the depths of the souls
Of good people
Like you, when you thought to point out the likeness
Like us, when we understood the meaning
Good people, coast to coast
And sea to shining sea
All the good people they left behind
To pass the story forward.

MoooOOOooorning everyone! Okay, I think yesterday was the first day since forever that I didn’t get near my computing machine, having told UT that my worky thing would be over afternoon-ish and I’d be back then 😳

So, a gazillion gazillion gazillion thank yous to the legend for all the wonderful posts yesterday – and for even posting my Early Bird Chat when I was AWOL.

You. Are. The. Best.

Happy Saturday everyone, soooooo thrilled the First Family are in Hawaii.
