well i remember when i was in jail in cincinnati. they dragged about 8-12 of us in a room before our initial hearing. when we got in there, an older man, in his 60’s, said something i’ll always remember. he said, “well here we all our dressed in our sunday best” we all had our orange jumpsuits on. for most of us this was not true, but it resonated with me as i didn’t feel like i had done anything wrong. was just being a free man hiking home when i got arrested.
like the late john lewis said, make good trouble. well i wouldn’t call anything i was doing “good trouble” i wasn’t sticking up for anybody but myself really. and just wanted to live without a car and walk to and fro. but i’ll always remember that older gentleman’s words.
