The hole in the sky

Seventeen years today…

I chose to remember joy, even though my heart aches for the losses.

For the hole in the sky.

For the people I mourn.

For an America that was less fractured by revenge, less intent on unraveling progress, less mean in its pursuit of something tangible that has seemingly been lost.

    I know this “Girl Boxing” is written by my very close friend , the incomparable Malissa Smith. And as usual it is so very well written and interesting. I can hardly wait for the next episode – you are so terrific, Malissa
