On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won’t understand
“Don’t accept that what’s happening
Is just a case of others’ suffering
Or you’ll find that you’re joining in
The turning away”
No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?

The song from a couple of decades ago: “That’s the Night That the Lights Went Out in Georgia” never rang truer in my lifetime.

Wow their are so many things wrong with that statement but it does explain why no one is rising up against the system for change. Well if you don’t care about the innocent then maybe you should care about the guilty who go free who in turn hurt more inoccent poeple.

Why shouldn’t “the greatest nation on Earth” be allowed to kill whomever it
wishes? If it happens that some of them are innocent, and/or most of them are
black, who cares? Remember: America, right or wrong, is ALWAYS right!
