“It can be so easy to take a moment and believe it is signaling a revolution though nothing in your experience has given you logical reason to believe the relationship is changing.
Siblings…. movement is happening but the relationships- they have not fully changed. Let’s stop focusing on why the monuments are still up when we know that the history and values represented in these monuments still have a death-dealing grip on us all.
What do we need to do to cultivate the land around us to be transformed for new growth, for new roots to establish once the land is cleared? The removal of anything does not transform- it clears space for new possibilities.
Cultivation takes time.”
