Curated Prism

Am I hopelessly insular, that the link I found to share on this day is to a post by a white woman, talking about MLK Day?  Like her, I recognize my privilege.  I also appreciate the way she puts our (more recent than we like to remember) history - that we view this sterilized, would-be heroic series of events almost devoid of humanity ... through a curated prism.  What a perfect description.

I will log onto Twitter momentarily, and perhaps will find someone without privilege I recognize as my own, giving voice to something deeper about today.  I'll add anything I find there, if I stay on long enough to really listen.  Days like this, it can be highly worth doing.
