7.5.2020 – unprecedented

unprecedented
miracles, every human –
treat them like they are

“Perhaps even more than the death itself, the manner of his death has forced me into a judgment concerning human life and human beings which I have always been reluctant to make,” he wrote.

“Incontestably, alas, most people are not, in action, worth very much; and yet, every human being is an unprecedented miracle.

One tries to treat them as the miracles they are, while trying to protect oneself against the disasters they’ve become.”

Author James Baldwin on the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
