"Here in the United States, our high level of income inequality corresponds with 883, 914 unnecessary deaths each year… Put that into perspective. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), tobacco, including second-hand smoke, causes approximately 480,000 deaths every year, and in 2010, traffic accidents killed 33,687 people and 31,672 others died of gunshot wounds.
The mechanism by which a bullet or a car crash kills is readily apparent. Inequality is lethal in ways that are less obvious. It’s a silent killer – a deadly plague that we, as a society, tend not to acknowledge.”

Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be.
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
One day I woke up
and we no longer spoke
the same language.
I haven’t heard from you since.
