STORMY WEATHER

The lights have been going in and out over here due to the storm. It's hella scary.  I thought about making a run to Trader Joe's for some dark chocolate covered almonds but got punked by the sound of the wind.

Not having adequate storm snacks sucks.  All I have is some beet hummus with no rice crackers because I ate those earlier, Indian pizza that requires an oven or skillet, stuff for tropical smoothies and orange flavored mineral water.  How am I supposed to make it through the storm with that??

I was hoping to just sleep through it since I really don't feel well but I am wide awake.  The good news is that my ipod is fully charged.  So no need to cancel my personal dance party.  My phone is guaranteed to die tonight if the lights go out again though.

If only I was better prepared for this storm.  The wind is so loud.  It sounds pissed off at everybody.  I'm low key scared to go outside, lol.

Let's just hope this mess dies down before the game on Sunday.  Actually, it would be best if things settled down by tomorrow.  I have a law seminar tomorrow followed by a youth and police forum in the evening.

I am looking forward to what our teens say to the police about what has been going on in the city.  In TEENERGY, we just had a discussion on excessive force.  The teens were shocked to learn that there is no real definition and it is primarily based on the officer's perspective.

The storm is the perfect metaphor for what's happening on the social justice front.  It's an even better one for excessive force and/or police brutality.  Think about it.  Both are unpredictable, seem to express anger for no reason, can be unnecessarily violent, and the aftermath is usually disasterous.

They say a storm does not last forever but justice is the only thing capable of predicting sunny days in the future.
