To Breathe (George Floyd) – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Time to Write – Violence

The theme lately here in the US is violence. Hatred and violence for your neighbor, your government, and probably your life with the frustration of how it has changed. What other explanation could there be for everyone acting with murder and outrage towards each other?

Violence with guns, more guns and deaths than any other place in the world. Coming to you from Wyoming where guns are plentiful and a person’s right to open carry without a license, what can we expect? What about the rights of peaceful, tolerant citizens? It is fearful to walk, shop, or play outside. People of color aren’t even safe in their own homes.

It is woeful, sad and maddening.
