Doing my Saturday night rounds, I come to the stop light where I want to take a right turn - and very faintly on the sidewalk I think I see what I think is a votive candle flickering - I look up and it's in the quiet hands of a young black man.
BIG MESSAGE HERE, I immediately realize.
Then everyone in the car says: It's got to be for Trayvon!
Some anonomous some one in Ohio, swing state USA, standing on an anonomous stand your ground street corner at 8:00 pm at night in the dark with a silly flickering votive candle in their hand....
THIS IS THE CIVILIZED WORLD!
Very sorry I did not get an image.
Very BIG Hat tip to the candle holder.
Very STRONG move.
I think the internet is strong, enormously strong, but I know your one candle flickering on the corner is way stronger than the entire internet.
Because you were holding the candle.
I saw you.
Your single candle, honestly held, has the ultimate strength.
You made me an emotional wreck....
