This is not the song I had queued for this week’s prompt, but after hearing it on a friend’s blog a few days ago, I knew I had to post it. Thanks, Kim!

The haunting lyrics of Devin Marie’s I Can’t Breathe speak to a pain that isn’t new.

It isn’t rare.

It isn’t self-inflicted.

It isn’t justified.

It isn’t DESERVED.

It didn’t start with George Floyd,

but it needs to end now.

If we could stop the pain on our own, we would have centuries ago.

But we cannot do it alone.

It will take all of us,

because despite agendas being promoted,

the issue isn’t black vs. white,

it’s about doing what is right.

  1. This is the most important share of the day. Thank you for doing that. Sadly this is not new but enough is enough. Silence = acceptance. No more time for that any longer.

  2. It certainly did not start with George Floyd, but his death has brought back to the forefront for change more than anyone since MLK and we are seeing some change in Jacksonville. A confederate monument was taken down in Hemming Park downtown in light of the protests and Duval County schools have already voted to change the name of at least 2 schools. A long way to go, but there has been more change in the last 30 days then in the past 4 years. Love your song choice this week! 🙂
