What if there was a group of people. It wouldn't have to be that big. even just a handful of good friends, people who are on the road less taken - true blue groupies,,, kindred spirits --- who set out and just walked about,, in resistance to the injustices that exist.
We, bring this Queery Question into light in regards to recent accounts, personal, and otherwise of heightened crime in a society that is ailing, in turmoil, or @ least experiencing growing pains -
beatings, emotional bludgeonings, turmoils, tormentations, domestic violence, hurting souls, rapes, and pillages, hate crimes, et al -
i know that it is no novel invention, no revelation... their are many groups that do this, and have done this...to no small amount of success.
it occurred to Us the other night on that trail up by Western Washington University, and when I see those telephone with the blue lights up there...and all Our road kid friends down here in the frigid ether of ground zero...with their stories that haunt them...and that which they carry wherever they tarry -
We, the people, seek to allieviate the suffering of our fellow Woman -
IF I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
5 Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. "
We could just walk around with each other...the trail from Western to Sehome in Bellingham neighborhood would be a good start ( a trail which is littered with the debris of unknown events...ripped clothing...muddied hello kitty backpacks) ---
We could carry big ass maglights...and wear black...not being militant or anything...just to walk about in areas where people are being victimized...a non violent but assertive resistance to predators.
IT seems to me that police patrol, is not effective in curbing the victimization of people...in all the forms that it is manifested. Especially in this heated sociological climate...where we are experiencing growing pains.
It could be called, "The Coalition of The Willing" or something...we could just walk around and drink bubble tea and look fierce...
A ray of light chokes out darkness by its very nature.
Just try and take a stab @ Water.
