So, my gov teacher was at Kenyon the same time you were. Apparently, he only really knew who you were because one of his friends there looked just like you. Also, he says his only memory of you was seeing you on the street one day wearing a t-shirt with the word "hungover" written in marker and an arrow pointing to your face.
Oh God I had forgotten all about that shirt.

Things that matter. Pass ‘em on.
I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.
"I thought that love would conquer all and skin color really didn’t matter. I had to learn the really hard way when they almost killed you."
I am (mostly) back from my pre-college attempt to catch up with friends and family.
I would like to say I made it through my dash and saw what was happening in your lives but unfortunately a cat walked across my keyboard at an inopportune time and I didn’t. I tried to get a picture but then I had to push her off because she was closing important windows and stuff.
y’all are just gonna have to see my kitties later
