Roof then ground

Added a roof. Up next: ground. Am trying to correct the tilt of the house, but perhaps I shouldn’t?

Yesterday Trayvon Martin would’ve turned 23. My heart still breaks to see his face.

    Thank you for sharing this talk. Thinking of how I fear & worry for my own boys, who are white & privileged, and thoughts for many of the children at school… I can’t imagine holding all that she describes in one’s heart and mind.

      I found the TED talk utterly compelling and heartbreaking. One of the reasons (and it’s not a great reason) that Trayvon Martin’s execution got me so bad was my older son was 17 at the time and very fond of hoodies as well.
