John, great article, I want to thank you for writing it. I read every word… and I am hearing you load and clear. I have shared this article with all of my friends. It’s time to start looking thing straight in the face. This is my personal first step, in a post Charleston America. Absolute, 100% honestly. I know I will most likely fail, but I will try my best and I promise to listen and share black voices like yours. It’s a step at least. I know the moutain is tall.
