What do you write on a day like this? How can the day be neatly summed up in a string of sentences and paragraphs? How can the pain, agony, frustration and fear felt by so many across the country be properly conveyed? Is it even possible?
How does one convey the emotions felt by a country that has watched, yet again, an unarmed black man die in police custody? How does one convey what it feels like to see major American cities set ablaze, or protesters clashing with Secret Service outside the White House.
How does one convey a President of the United States who, instead of offering words aimed at consoling a nation, chooses to instead pour gasoline on the fire and turn the temperature up?
