Such a tiny sound.


Like a pistol cocking.


The sound of a car door locking when a black man approaches.

It's a shame to see the passing of all of the older civil rights leaders; knowing that their is still more left to do. Did they effectively pass the torch? I don't know. Or did we as the younger generation feel that was they gave us was all we needed? I don't know that either.
