  •  Wow... just wow... (14+ / 0-)

    That was by far the most moving, heart-wrenching, inspiring diary I have ever found here at DK.  Thank you.  I am a white woman with a 17-almost-18 year old son... and I live in Jacksonville, FL where Jordan Davis lived, and died.  I am ashamed of my community, my, state, my country - where young men of color are routinely murdered and then demonized.  I wept as I read your words.  My son, right now, is out with friends ... were I a black mother I would hold my breath in fear until he returned home safely.  That is just so totally, completely, unconscionably wrong.  Your diary, along with others, should inspire us all to step up and take action to demand justice and turn this evil tide...  thank you for rattling the saber.
