My friend Janice took that photo of a woman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last week. She sent me the photo, knowing I might want to post it here. Janice is Jewish and an artist, the the roughness of the cloth, safety-pinned to the back of the woman's coat, and the words "Black Lives Matter," took her breath away. It flashed her back to another time in history, when a group of people were forced to wear cloth armbands with the Star of David in the context of a mass genocide. Janice was very affected by that sign on the back of the woman's coat. She found the quiet statement powerful and suggested we should all wear such signs, this time as a testament to life.
