Day +13: Free at last!

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last!

I’m back at home!

While I’m very thankful for my treatment, the HSC, and the staff of D6 who took such excellent care of me for 21 days I am glad to be “free” and back at home. And, truly thankful to God Almighty for my healing.

For a couple of days I have been thinking of using the last lines from Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech. I’d never read the entire speech before today. And while I hope that civilization has made some progress in the last 57 years it’s clear that we have a long ways to go yet.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.
