The Bus Ride

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.

Dedicated to a Strong Woman

MC Mong wrote this song for his good friend and late actress Choi Jin Sil. May she rest in peace. This song is beautiful.

When I remember stories like hers, I sometimes wonder why some people are put through such harsh lives. Those out there that want to end their life, please stay strong. Stay strong for yourself and for your loved ones. The sun will always appear after the rain, and a brilliant rainbow will shine your path. For tomorrow is another day, live strong, and happiness is yours.
