Prior to the verdict, there was a request for calm. Calm reaction to whatever the verdict may be. The verdict, of course, is of the case of George Zimmerman, the man who admittedly shot and killed a 17 year-old, unarmed boy. On Saturday evening, the verdict was not guilty.
Calm? How can people be calm? How can calm exist in a time of injustice, racism, and seeming loss of civil rights? I feel like I can go on and on about this, and I definitely have prior to and after this verdict. But instead, I will direct you to a piece written by Edward Wyckoff Williams who is able to write something profound, impactful and eloquent that goes beyond anger and frustration. Something I am having a tough time doing right now.
