England & West Indies Players & Umpires Take A Knee At The 1st Test — I CRIED!

by Anura Guruge





I have always said it, & I will gladly & proudly say it again. There is no other game like cricket. Push comes to shove we still always strive to ‘make it cricket‘. A genuine gentleman’s game — in the sense of ‘good manners’ & sportsmanship. Yes, yes, yes … we have had our incidents.

But, this was TRULY special.

I cried. Tears poured down my face. I was happy!

Very well organized & orchestrated. All the Windies had thin black gloves that they wore on their upraised, clenched fist arm. Very moving.

This was good for cricket. This was good for the World. Shame that Trump would NOT even understand. His loss.

Thank you, ALL.

This is why I truly love cricket.

YouTube trailer.


Another gut-wrenching
TRUE LIFE, REAL STORY 
of a black boy
wrongly imprisoned. 


Must Watch.

So, so, so topical.

You have NO choice. YOU have to watch it.

As with ‘Just Mercy‘ it is FREE for this month — for #BlackLivesMatter.

Available on YouTube.


Is there NO end to this?

How many more cases?

This is so disturbing. This is so wrong, though in a way this was a black-on-black crime.

What makes this story even SADDER is that it happened in California! In California.

This came as an e-mail from ‘Revels North‘ (New Hampshire & Vermont) this morning.

I was impressed, pleased & proud. Good on them. Bravo. Thanks.

Last week ‘Revels’ (Cambridge) proclaimed their support by sending out a musical video of children singing for peace.

This is why I am such a BIG fan & booster of ‘Revels’. Their heart is always in the right place & they know exactly what note to strike.

Thank YOU.

This was the RIGHT thing to do. I am so proud of them. Bravo.

I know that they must have weighed all the pros & cons & decided that this was STILL the RIGHT thing to do.

I am not sure how many other companies are doing similar BUT I am very proud of Etsy.

I have been a big fan of theirs for years — & I have put my money where my mouth is by becoming a shareholder last year.
