I Heard You

There is fear. I’m afraid for our country, and very anxious about the future.
Even though I’m not quite sure what to add to the conversation to help make this a better place to live, I still have hope.
My life is not extraordinary. I am a white man, and a man of a certain age. My voice and my perspective have been heard way too many times. It’s not all about me.
Plenty of mistakes have been made, and there’s a need to make amends. I want to apologize to you.
So, I tell stories of fear, complicity, childhood memories, anxiety, vulnerabilities, marginalization, sexuality, religion, love, humor, and hopeful expressions of humanity. Words matter, and I hope to make some changes.
