Once Upon a Time

I was in high school and college in the 60's. It was a time of civil unrest due to racial tensions. There were some of us who felt that the two extremes were Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Black Panthers. So it was possible to want change without being violently radical. At present I am reminded of that time but there is an absence of a calm way to show support for anybody. I am against violence and I don't really think it does a lot of good. People who feel sympathy aren't necessarily willing to join in that kind of group. The civil rights movement wouldn't have accomplished what it did without the passive resistance choice as opposed to violence.
