A must read piece by Shawn Micallef: http://www.eyeweekly.com/city/psychogeography/article/96101
Thank you Shawn for putting words to the feelings felt by so many of us. I too fled the city to avoid having to witness the inevitable disaster of G20. I too was compelled back to the city when I learned how she was being hurt.I also felt that same reassurance of healing from joining thousands of average Torontonians at the rally that began in front of Police HQ on Monday evening.This event is a psychic trauma. That trauma comes from the realization by many that the freedom we take for granted is so fragile, so tenuous and so conditional in the face of fear and power.We need more healing. We need to restore the Toronto we know and love. We need truth and reconciliation.Who will lead us through this process? What is the next step?
