History has a way of showing a man exactly who he is; the same can be said for time if they are not considered one in the same.
Over the past several months I have gone back and forth about addressing what I am seeing in the world today against what I believe to be true about the world and time.
History repeats itself.
What we see today we have seen before.
There are no innocent parties, no victims in the brutality that we see in the world.
Still, the truth of these statements do not comfort me. They do not silence the alarms sounding in my head or the voice in my ear telling me not to be afraid, or that now is the time for speaking up not the time for handing the baton off to someone else.
What is a girl to do when the world has grown silent in the face of injustice? When we shelter evil, stating it is our friend, brother, son, or daughter who is misunderstood.
We shelter evil because it is what lies within us all.
What we must remember is what happens when light exposes darkness, darkness can't run and hide for where will it go? What will it cling to once exposed? I see only two choices, either darkness doubles down, or it surrenders but because man has a hard time abandoning his most troubling habits the outcome is the world we live in today.
Darkness running rampant amongst us.
