The right words from Martin Luther King today . I woke up to see images of a city I once lived in burning itself down , breaking itself . Upon discovering the rage of Alexander Pope , who was hiding in an Oxford anthology. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1743 . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ nam myoho renge kyo 📿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My heart breaks for you.💔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
