Chaos and (Minimizing) Confusion

As if a rotten year couldn’t get any rottener. The news of Chadwick Boseman’s recent passing was like a sucker punch. At 43 years of age, it feels too soon. In his short time on the mortal plane, he became known for playing Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and T’Challa/Black Panther, the most famous role of all. Regardless of whether they were historical or a comic book/movie character, these figures inspired millions to achieve their dreams, and also work towards a better world for all.

It is with Mr. Boseman’s passing that we mustn’t forget the passing of Anthony Huber (26) and Joseph Rosenbaum (36). They were protesting the shooting of Jacob Blake, a(nother) black father who was shot by police and is now paralyzed from the waist down. Mr. Huber and Mr. Rosenbaum were murdered by Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen-year-old man who claimed to have shot them in self-defense. They were in fact, trying to protect the other protesters from Rittenhouse.

If you want to see a better world, it isn’t enough to be a keyboard warrior. Write to your leaders (if they will listen). Protest peacefully if you are able to protest. And most importantly, vote. This is an election you cannot sit out. If voting didn’t matter, they wouldn’t make it so difficult.

May these three Rest in Power, and let’s continue working on that better world. As another inspirational figure said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

As school resumes and yet another pumpkin spice latte season is about to descend upon us, the sleepy days of summer are numbered. Traditionally, Labor Day weekend is considered the last weekend of summer. What with all that’s gone on this year, it’s hard to believe that Labor Day is next weekend.

Amidst the madness plaguing the human world, Mega Millions retained its status as “top” lottery. The August 28, 2020 drawing saw encores for both the Pattern and the General Order. Playing it safe paid off for the players as well, at least those who like big prizes. With no one able to pick the six winning numbers, the jackpot climbed to $78 million.
