As a “foreigner” (Australian and living there), I cannot relate to the actual situation throughout the USA
However I can certainly relate to the meaning of this article – there exists serious injustice within America for people’s rights in several areas, particularly, it seems, in education and voting rights. And there are questions being asked and decisions to be made.

Contributing I can do, but having confidence that it is not a waste of time is probably fanciful. I sincerely hope not!

Indeed, why do we prejudge people at all and why is it that even the elderly cannot escape our diabolical doings? The theories abound; answers escape us. Nevertheless, the veracity is our truth.
