Violence is often swept under the rug – sometimes the mound of dust gets too big to ignore. In that case, we may lift a corner and sweep up that one mound of dust. But dust spreads, that one mound is connected to all the rest, it’s filthy in the darkness of the rug. Still there are options because after all, it’s not my day to sweep and it’s not my dust. I can step on it, spread the pile out, make it not truly noticeable until someone else pulls the rug back. But that’s for another day, another person’s problem.
This blog is meant to pull the rug out. We are here to stir up that dust – if it’s floating in our faces, inhibiting our breathing, getting in our eyes, stuck in our pores, we can no longer ignore it.
