Where were you when

Black Lives Matter Protest, Bristol, UK

History, despite its wrenching pain,
Cannot be unlived, and if faced with courage,
Need not be lived again.

                                          Maya Angelou, The Pulse of Morning


Everyday actions, experiences, and reactions provide the often unrecorded context to momentous historical events.

How have your days unfolded as protests swept across the world? 

We hope that you might find some inspiration in this week's writing prompt but as always if you would like to write something else about your life - a diary entry, poem, your reflections on something else about your life at the moment - we'd be delighted to read whatever you would like to send.
