In Memoriam

Memorial Day calls us to remember those who have died. I remember those brutally murdered by the state and those who serve the state in uniform and behind a badge.

August Spies, Albert Parsons, Adolph Fischer, George Engel, Joe Hill, Ferdinando Nicola Sacco, Bartolomeo Vanzetti, Amadou Diallo, Oscar Grant, Robbie Tolan, Adolph Grimes III

Wounded Knee, Trail of Tears, Manifest Destiny, Kent State, School of the Americas, Mai Lai Massacre, Memorial Day Massacre of 1937, Bay View Massacre

100,000 Iraqi Civilians

I remember you. I cannot list you all. I cannot hold you all in my mind at once for fear of my heart breaking beyond repair. But I remember you and the violence you suffered in the name of freedom, law and country. I remember those who justified their brutality with a flag.

Today I mourn you all and rage against those who stole your lives.
