Thoughts and prayers.
We hear this often in response to any number of tragedies.
The sentiment of support can seem trite when massive action is what we desire.
It feels impossible to make the change that is needed to atone for countless grievances carried out over the history of the human race.
The good deeds of an individual seem insignificant against the tsunami of hate and violence threatening the land.
A peaceful protest can seem like a whisper in the wind while acts of racism scream like a hurricane, taking the lives of Black people in the United States at gale force rates in barbaric, overt and insidious ways.
