Beginning of the end


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.
