I could list the number of people that have been killed by police in the last year. I could list the number of police that have been killed in the last year. I could list the number of people that have died with cause in the last year. I could list the number of people that have died without cause in the last year. I could do all these things but it wouldn't matter because somewhere along the road we lost our way.
We have battled over the meaning of life it's freedom! no it's money! Power! Happiness! We have pursued what we set in front of us with little regard for its effect. We build amusement parks over graveyards.
Death is unfortunate now of course when it isn't useful. Police **** a man and it's symbolism. A man kills police and it's symbolism. A white man chides a black man and it's symbolism. A black man chides a white man and it's symbolism. it's lazy it's also unfortunate.
If everything is symbolism then nothing is. If we cling to every moment like it's a rock on a cliff we will fall to our death every single time. We grasp for the bigger picture as we fail to see the smaller one. Everything must mean something no moment should be lost on us.

What i'm saying is that the meaning of life is thought pure unadulterated back of the head against the pillow eyes to the ceiling hand on the heart mind in the clouds thought.
Thought defies population statistics thought frees you from the numbers. Suddenly it doesn't matter how many police died last year or how many people they killed. If we think we can observe the issue or ignore it entirely. We can do whatever we want isn't that what life is supposed to be?
But thought requires work we must view not only both sides to every story but each degree of the angles in between. It isn't easy. It isn't simple and that's why I think it will never correct itself. Next year more people will die because we won't think.
