Wednesday Get Over the Hump Free for All
The general theme of the day is Justice.
She is said to be blind, not able to see whether those who are brought before her are rich or poor, of what skin color, sect or sex, but I think most of us are present to the reality of our American system.
In Trumpland, the courts have helped us Resist the Muslim Ban, and other RW agenda items, but at the same time, the news is filled almost daily with verdicts that render no justice for the victims.
Yet justice is one of the things we strive towards, and one of the things we as Democrats believe should be accorded equally to all.
My depiction in our banner seems to be weeping beneath her blindfold. Tears are sadness and pain, but they are also compassion, and sometimes, mercy.
The victims of injustice are among those we fight for.
Remember them today.
WTFJH yesterday… Day 152: Spicey.
On Juneteenth, we reflect on the injustice that keeps our country’s promise out of reach for too many, & recommit to fight for civil rights. pic.twitter.com/EO98GMzd0P

Spent Juneteenth rereading ads taken out by formerly enslaved ppl searching for their family. Freedom was often accompanied by so much grief pic.twitter.com/bpvxAN74bu
