    Hello there, I have read this numerous times and I wondered whether I should 'dissect' it or not as I know what the whole meaning of this is about. I was watching some of the trial on BBC news and I really have no words. One of the witnesses just didn't seem to want to be there what-so-ever and I was truly disgusted, I really was.
    The title 'land of the free?' despite me feeling as though I know the meaning could be about a number of things in all honesty and works well as a last 4th line, in my opinion.

    I absolutely love the imagery you bring to light here, though it's as if, unfortunately, we're divided by race yet again but this reminds me of a quote I read once or twice that says something a little like "religion is a big killer" and my goodness isn't it right?

    This last line here, is just a gut wrenching, kick in the teeth eye opener and shows that things need to change and fast.
    Nominated.

      I saw that witness, Em. 'Disgusted' is the right word. How anyone can present themselves in court like that, in a trial of such magnitude when so much pain surrounds the issue, is really quite beyond me.

      I'm glad it wasn't just me who thought that Ben, I had to turn it off in the end. My heart bled.

    It will certainly be an interesting outcome. For want of a better term, the whole world is holding its collective breath.

    Is it because of masks? Covid? Or am I missing something?
