For What It’s Worth

“There’s something happening here

But what it is ain’t exactly clear…”

Buffalo Springfield 1967

The 8 Minutes and 48 Seconds of George Floyd captures a police officer’s callous disregard for human life and the world watched.

Widespread protests followed with videos and images which were both horrifying and touching. These tweets include a cop pointing his gun at protesters, Washington, DC on fire, the crowd outside the White House, the cop who was killed in Oakland, a long thread with videos of LA’s protests, three generations trying to figure out a better way and a man being beaten by a mob.

As I look at what’s happening around me, maybe everyone’s listening this time around.


  1. Amazing how much changes and how little changes. Another verse says young people speaking their minds getting so much resistance from behind. I now fit into the behind group “older people.” I only hope that my peers join in and help and do not resist lasting change.
