#KalerUPromised

Today I wish I still lived in Minnesota.

Yesterday, a group of student and alumni activists staged a sit-in in the University of Minnesota president’s office. Thirteen of the peaceful protesters were arrested. The student group leading the sit-in live-tweeted the whole thing and they are posting continuing support and updates:

(I’m really frustrated-I’ve tried everything Twitter and WordPress told me to do, and the feed won’t embed. I’m sorry, mom and my other eight readers, you’ll actually have to click through)

Today, I wish I still lived in Minnesota. Not so I could join in. So I can listen. Right now I have Twitter feeds and articles and blog posts. But I want to listen with both ears and both eyes with my mouth quiet and my hands at my side.
