Nothing Is Simple These Days

Nothing is simple these days.

I went downtown with Syd tonight to watch our fellow citizens demonstrate their civic right to peacefully protest something they fear. I watched the vast majority fight tooth and nail to keep things positive. They reprimanded the masked protestor who tried to light the garbage can on fire. They chased away the hothead who throw a projectile at the police. But all it takes is ten bad seeds per thousand to shift the meaning of it all. The organizers tried to keep it peaceful, but peaceful isn't the reality right now.

No, nothing is simple these days.
