Music takes me places I would likely not reach without it.  As a conveyance toward and through sorrow, it has no equal. 

Here is a link to the New York Times article, "The Condition of Black Life Is One of Mourning."

For now, it seems the best we can do is grieve beside our sisters and brothers.

What a powerful article. It's hard to imagine the emotional state of black people. The way blacks are treated is a form of terrorism. A very random, scary kind of terrorism.

I also enjoyed that beautiful rendition of Ashokan Farewell.

Kass - I agree, what a powerful, unforgettable article. Having read it, I couldn't stop thinking about it, about the mothers. And I agree, it is terrorism. May the music help carry us all through. xo
