Raising Our Voices Against Racism My heart is aching because of the horror we have witnessed in the US and the ongoing horror that is institutionalised racism. A spark of hope is also kindled in my heart by seeing many people around the world from all backgrounds are coming together to raise their voices against racism and affirm that #BlackLivesMatter. I add my voice in solidarity with the global protests at the horrific murder of George Floyd by white policemen and the subsequent treatment of protestors. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd. I add my voice to call for an end to brutal, institutionalised racism towards the black community worldwide. I add my voice to call for an enquiry into the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities In my Crystal Palace community, I have been proud and honoured to take a peaceful, safe, socially distant stand against racism together with a supportive, relaxed police presence. I know that protesting on the street is only one form of contribution and I honour the many ways we can raise our voices for a better world.
Broken Angels - this song came to me on a walk amongst broken angels in local cemeteries. I've always loved broken sculptures, because they embody the wisdom many sages and artists have reminded us of - it's through our brokenness the love gets through. We are kinder when we remember that everyone is trying to navigate their own brokenness. For we break through when we reach each other across the brokenness - when police and protesters embrace, when loved ones virtually hug on zoom. We can hold each other in our broken angel arms through these heart breaking times.
Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly Lots of love, virtual hugs and good singing vibes
