Anonymous said: While I agree with you about Ferguson, and it's absolutely horrible what the police are doing there, the picture you used in your post is actually from an April government dispute/protest in Nevada. Yes, the police are corralling journalists into certain areas, while arresting many of them simply for doing their jobs, which is a gross violation of the First Amendment, freedom of speech, religion, the press, and assembly, but they haven't, to my knowledge, been blatant enough for a sign like that

Thank you SO MUCH for correcting me—my source information was wrong on this. I will delete the photo from the original post.

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.

As a writer, the most important thing to me is that my words mean something to someone.

I may write fiction, but that doesn’t mean that what I write isn’t true. All I hope is that someone out there who’s read my words have felt their truth—or at least a truth.

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.
