I Have No Heart for a Cider Review Today

Today there are more important things to share than my thoughts on two ciders. Those will be back next week. I cannot pretend I don’t see what’s happening all around the United States. I’m not claiming expertise, but to say nothing is to support an unacceptable status quo. Black lives matter.

The police have been militarizing for a long time, and they've upheld property above the lives of people of color for far longer. Now, when people protest the notion that police can murder with impunity, they are met with catastrophic force. The president makes it exponentially worse. 

My voice isn’t the important one. I want to amplify the voices of experience and expertise, particularly Black voices.

Here are some organizations that help. They could use support.

These are just a few, there are many many more.
