As arrest looms near…

My probable arrest looms near as Nickelsville is ordered to leave public land… In response, I thought a little retelling of Dr. King would be fitting.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the homeless is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the homeless man’s basic mobility is from the steets to a ghetto to a section 8 slum. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by their classmates simply for where they live. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until “justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
