Charges were brought against George Zimmerman,
confessed pursuer/killer of Trayvon Martin.
And I can't say I'm relieved,
jubilant, or particularly satisfied. In fact
it feels pretty anti-climatic. 44 days
after the murder, to see charges.
Because now we wait to see
if Florida's justice system delivers some
semblance of real justice. Will it
ever really be over? This tired
story that is tragically relived/redone
/renamed/retitled, an updated open assault.
Perhaps I'll feel more jubilant when
we write fresh stories of peace.
