Nothing can escape the linear form of time.
Each step a chain reaction, tipping the next domino in a never ending game.
There is always a through-line.
Tonight, let's take a break from the game to acknowledge how much pain my community is in right now. The Asian-American community is buzzing right now. Not the keep your head down busy bee kind of buzz, and more like the 4th Redbull after 2 Adderall kind of buzz. They are reflections of the empty jitters that remind us that we can't fall asleep. The violence has got to stop from those who perpetuate their hate against us as well as the police who helped reinforce our plight in the first place. I am tired. I am hoarse. And tonight I can't.
Please educate yourselves tonight.
Tonight I take refuge in this music to forget for second the ails that I carry. But do not for a second forget that we are hurting and we cannot stay silent.
