I sat on the 43 bus towards Joyce Station. My regular ride home from work. As usual, I scrolled through Facebook, and then Twitter, looking for some casual reading material. “A Modern-day Lynching” – an article shared by the BuzzFeed News twitter account. I read. It was the story of a man named Craig Anderson that was killed by a group of young men because he was Black. I read, in pain, in disgust, in confusion. Then my Spotify playlist shuffles, and “Love is Endless” by Mozella is playing in my headphones.
How tragically timed, yet serendipity. As if trying to shine hope on this modern madness.
