Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

PyroclasticFlo: "Lewis Carroll wove this well into his Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I guess he must have visited here with Alice Liddell and her sisters. Curiously I learn that it really was called a Treacle Well because this was a Holy Well and the mediaeval sense of the word ‘treacle’ meaning ‘healing unguent’. "

If the stars fell
If the stars fell:
A black man and a white man both in chains... one turns to the other and says "my burden is great, look at me, i am in chains..." the other responds... "i promise that one day when my burden is broken we will all be free" then suddenly the shackles fall to the ground and one walks into the light... so pleased by his freedom that he left the other behind... forgotten...

who is speaking to who?

If the stars fell
If the stars fell: you expect us to have an excessive amount of concern for your well being while having zero regard for ours, and not only that but completely disregard any point of view from a white person, particularly as a white male.We have no voice, we dont even have a seat at the table... and our concerns and well being is dismissed out of hand by poisoning peoples minds with the notion that we already have all the power therefore our suffering isnt a priority.

Their well being isnt any more important than ours.

It also implies that black people are incompetent children that have no agency or personal accountability for their own success or failures. The perpetual victims that can never be appeased regardless of how much you concede. I personally also find that racist...

how many times does it has to be said that we should treat people as individuals based on their individual merit? it seems like it should be obvious... but people still go out of their to set themselves apart from the masses, self segregating then demanding some perceived "Equality" while thinking they deserve constant preferential treatment.

It's bullshit, and its not the path to equality, and the more we constantly set ourselves apart with stupid labels the harder and longer the road will be.

If the stars fell
If the stars fell: people scream in outrage about the horrors of the past... things we cannot change... i understand where their pain comes from... but it seems to me that people delight in their own misery and are adverse to any notion of trying to fix it... or at least alleviate it to the best of our ability... no suggestion is good enough, no outcome is sufficient... people relish in their despair and misery... and even if you did everything you could possibly do, within the significant power of our species... it would never be enough... so we wallow in our bitter blackened holes... and bite any hand that makes an effort to drag you kicking and screaming into the light... and thus it crumbles to dust, drains through our hands, and evaporates into the wind...

milaboo: What I notice is often in BLM context, people are coming out left and right saying “wow. I thought I was woke. I’m wasn’t. I’m sorry. I’m working on it.” And they get met with “Not good enough! Should have done it sooner. It shouldn’t have taken this to wake you..” While I understand the bitterness and that may be true to an extent, what is all this about if not to create change? And people still want to continue to pound. “Give us change!” “Here you go. Sorry.” “Not good enough! Go back in time and make it happen before now!” “...” Letting go of the bitterness is as important in people making changes in their deeds and outlooks, too. And all of it is indeed for nothing if it is just pretty words.

rochelleforsberg: He loved us so much he didn't make us robots but gave us a free will. That's a loving God to me. If you were to be married would it be love for the husband or wife to force them into marriage or to love them in the marriage. No. Same with God. You and I broke God's law. Jesus paid the fine. Thats why on the cross he cried out "it is finished" meaning the debt has been paid my friend. He always has his hands open for you. There is the will of God and our will and we choose his will which is full of freedom love and life or our will. Hell wasn't made for us but for the fallen angels. He made so so unique that there is NO OTHER YOU in all the world. Thats how special you are to him. God is a holy God and thats why bad things are happening around us. In this world because we have been rebelling against him. But if you come to him as you are today he will take you no matter who you are or what you have done.

If the stars fell: I'm not interested in your religious proselytization, you aren't going to convince me that human sacrifice is just or reasonable. In fact i find it very disrespectful and extremely unhelpful to try and convince the world that some magical being from space is going to resolve any of our troubles and it actively prevents people from facing reality and resolving actual problems using realistic and measurable methods.

If you god was going to fix this problem it would have been fixed already, its had thousands of years to try and hasn't brought us a single inch closer to a resolution.

Now kindly take that shit somewhere else, your religious soap boxing bullshit isnt wanted or needed here.

If the stars fell
If the stars fell to IrisEnsata: its really quite a shame that people are unwilling to have an open honest dialogue, knowing full well that the best intentions are at the root of it. Knowing someone for literally years and years, and then immediately calling them bad because they address issues that people are uncomfortable facing... and this is why these problems will never be fixed, because you cant even speak openly with a friend that you know is a friend and a good person.... so be it i guess, let it burn.

If the stars fell: sometimes...
you can cry until there is nothing wet in you...
you can scream and curse until your throat rebels and ruptures...
you can pray all you want to whatever god you think will listen...
and still...
it makes no difference...
it just goes on and on with no sign of when it might release you...
and you know... if it ever did relent...
it would not be because it cared...
