Trayvon Martin - Ancestor's Grief

I really thought that I'd be able to process the verdict regardless of how and where it came down, so no one was more surprised than me that I absolutely lost it - cried hysterically (an absolute shock because in spite of some of my own recent very personal losses hysterics didn't come to play on those occasions) because apparently this grief was old - it was ancestor grief - it was from the bowels of the rotting ships crossing the Atlantic 400 years ago - it was that of that first mother seeing that first son put on that block and sold into hell - it was things I didn't realize abode within my rudimentary heart and soul. Now released it is truly for me the drum beat of change.
