That brings us to yelling obscenities at and threatening violence to each other.
My wife and I live in the Beacon Hill section of Boston. Real estate is expensive here thus you might think that it’s probably unlikely that the social unrest that’s been sweeping the globe would be much of a factor in our neighborhood. You’d be very wrong.
Our place is a very short distance from the Massachusetts State House.
We’ve experienced many demonstrations both peaceful and violent.
The point I want to make then is this. DO NOT THINK WHAT OUR COUNTRY IS CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH ISN’T YOUR CONCERN!
I took this in a public park, about 200 yards from where we live in Boston. It speaks to the political tension of our times. There was a big protest scheduled for later in the afternoon and these young folks were apparently checking out the area. Maybe it’s just me but, I can feel tension and potential violence in the image.
The media lately has been full of articles about how much videos and photographs have helped drive America’s move towards racial equality. What a wonderful use for our images!
