Finding Alice

What I Can't Help But Say

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Words. My building blocks and none of them behaving. Refusing to line up neatly and obediently at my command, marching themselves into sentences, then paragraphs.

So for now, I will surrender and leave them be. I refuse to force them to my will.

  • Privilege
  • Injustice
  • Oppression
  • Equity
  • Grief
  • Divided
  • United
  • Acknowledge
  • Anger
  • Rage
  • Connect
  • Action
  • Reform
  • Accountability
  • Understanding
  • Empathy
  • Compassion
  • Self-awareness
  • Respect
  • Healing
  • Change
  • Meaningful
  • Tangible
  • Now

Just words. I heard that when all is finally written, said or done, one good sketch is worth a thousand, right? An artistic daughter continues to teach her parents well.

    No worries Alice. I enjoyed her portfolio and that is a fabulous rendering of George Floyd.
