“But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, so must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.”
- MLK Jr. from Why We Can’t Wait

I often find myself on the side of feeling helpless and not knowing what to do, which then leads to non-action. Here is how I found I can help. Saturday June 30 there will be a national protest “Families Belong Together.” You can see where the nearest location is for you online. You can also help by donating to KIND (kids in need of defense). #keepfamiliestogether#landscapephotography#landscapephotographer#landscape_capture#landscape_captures#landscapephoto#naturephoto#naturephotography#beautifulearth#naturephotographer
