Elephant In The Room

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~ Dancer of Reconciliation

Is the figure on the right taking a knee while the three hold hands?

As a woman I have been discriminated against in hundreds of ways. Yet I've never been shot or hung or drug behind a pickup because my skin is white.  I've never had a bone broke, not been served, house burned, denied education, or turned away from communal friendship. I've never been punished for speaking my mind, how I dress, how I exhibit my personal vision.

I'll take a knee any where any place, in support of turning discrimination to ashes. I suspect I'll be taking a knee until my dying day and nothing will change.

    1. when I first drew this card I almost put it back, something I never do. The reconciliation I personally need is never going to happen and I didn't want to talk about it. Then I saw that knee and my bully pulpit kicked into high gear. I could go on for hours. Arncha glad I didn't :)

  2. Was happy to see the entire Dallas Cowboy team take a knee... Some people get angry without understanding (or wanting to understand) what is going on.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
