My country tis of thee: Troy Davis

I had nothing substantial to add to the outrage over the killing of Troy Davis.  After he was killed, I struggled to find something to write that expressed my feelings of lament.  Nothing came clear.

This weekend I was driving with my sweetie and this Ani DiFranco tune came out of the speakers.  “Why don’t you just go ahead and turn off the sun. We’ll never live long enough to undo all the things they’ve done to you.”  That is what I’ve been feeling.
