Universal Question

Last night I could not sleep

Dreams of hatred were on the streets

Violence

A divide

Racist speech

This is not a dream

A living nightmare

What will it take

To keep all those we love safe

Family

Friends

Coworkers

Neighbors

It is not an overreaction to assume such acts could take place

For it was not long ago

That these same mistakes were made

I beg of you

I plead of you

To recall

What happened when our ancestors remained silent

These same thoughts became words and then became actions

If we choose to repeat the past

Have we as humans really learned anything at all?
