In Like A Lion

I think the saying goes, “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” I think I’d say “Out like a lion and in like one too,” as May closes out and June’s under way.

Why?

Our planet and in particular our country has been ravaged by the COVID pandemic. Still no end in sight.

Our economy has been punched in the face, kicked in the gut, and tens of millions of people face immediate economic insecurity.

And as I write this piece on Sunday night, I listen to police helicopters outside my window, overhead in my neighborhood.

Why?

We live close to a good size mall, and there are crowds on the streets just blocks away protesting the murder of George Floyd.

God bless George Floyd and his family.

God help our country AT LAST confront the systemic, institutional and societal racism people of color face in these United States.

A lion indeed, a lion indeed.

God help us, please.
