An elderly man visited me for the third time in three years last night; he says he’s a former school teacher. He wears a big, bright smile beneath his bushy grey beard. I see him so infrequently but always remember him. Last night he explained why he rarely visits.

"I come to see you once a year, near to my birthday. My wife passed in 2002. She was a special woman. I’ve dated a few women since her passing, and while they were all lovely people, none of them could compare. Getting a few dances from you is always bittersweet. I miss the closeness, the feeling of intimacy and just being hugged."

"Some women don’t seem to understand that sometimes a man just wants to feel loved, with or without sex. So being close to you for those few moments brings back memories of her. And then it’s over, and I remember that she’s still gone. But I wanted you to know why I only see you once a year. It’s hard for me. But it’s wonderful."

- I cried.

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m sick of white people!! IM FUCKING SICK OF THEM!!!

"Not all white people."

"Stop generalizing."

"Not all white people."

"We all are human."

"Not all white people."

even the so called “good” white people wanna ignore this shit because it “makes them uncomfortable” fuck white people

fuck white people

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.
