What Kinds of Times Are These (Brighter Days Blog #57)

Hello all! Hope you are doing well! Today's poem is, "What Kind of Times Are These," by Adrienne Rich. This poem is about a house that is isolated from the rest of society, and how we are getting closer and closer every day to our own truth and dread. In our communities, we are getting closer to the truth and the realization that this is not just a silent virus that comes and goes. It is here to stay, and we need to face that now more than ever. Especially with the murder of George Floyd. It was shocking to see something so deep inside, so despicable, be pulled out of another human. This man's murder is just another reminder of the stark racism and the indecency that has become just as much of an epidemic as this coronavirus. We will not let this atrocious killing to go on unnoticed. And our team knows you can do that. It all circles back to the concept of us finding ways to make our own die. Isn't there enough of that already? We need this to stop. Now. One thing we will not allow this coronavirus to do is drive us apart. Because that is how you know it has won, and that won't happen. We are sure. Thank you, and goodnight.
