Reluctantly Sitting

Today I'm not satisfied with sitting at a desk.

I'm watching C-SPAN 2, listening to the powerful voice of the woman who was once the small girl seen clinging to her mother, Coretta Scott King, in a photo taken at Martin Luther King's funeral 38 years ago.

Black dignitaries, leaders, communities organizations are gathered on the mall to break ground on a memorial 20 years in the making.

And all I can think is that I wish I didn't have to watch it, write about it from a TV in the office.

...oh, and I'm thinking of how fly these men look in their black trench coats and fedoras. Y'all betta get it.
