Photos of Black Lives Matter Protest & March, Boston, Massachusetts

This past Sunday, May 31st, 2020, I went together with a fellow Zen practitioner friend & participated in the Black Lives Matter protest in Boston, Massachusetts.  I first became aware of the protest through my Zen priest and teacher Joan during her Sunday morning Dharma talk.   Our Zen center is very active when it comes to education, awareness and action in social justice issues like ending systemic racism, etc, and after hearing about the protest happening later on in the day, I felt inspired and compelled to be there in solidarity with all beings.  

It was beautiful and powerful to see so many people of all walks of life, together, in solidarity, united in cause.   It was huge.  Systemic racism is a reality in America, and it needs to end. NOW.  America's police state of and culture of government issued violence must end NOW!


End Thin Blue Line.  End White Silence.  Black Lives Matter
