America the Guilty

My fellow Americans, we all have blood on our hands and have for some time. Not just forgiven blood, but domestic blood. Not just from a century ago, but from this decade. From this year. From this day and many yesterdays.

We have fresh blood on our hands and it’s as much our fault for doing nothing as it is the fault of any cop or shooter who pulled the trigger to murder an innocent person.

We are each guilty of murder and our punishment is to live in this unsafe place we created for ourselves, our family, and our friends.

Each one of us is a murder and it’s too late for any kind of redemption.

Go to your loved ones — go to strangers — and apologize and hug them because it's going to get worse and we fucking deserve it.
