Unlike Eric Garner and unlike Freddie Gray, we can breathe. Breathing is just a lot harder to do these days.
Cry new tears. Channel new anger. Feel it all again. All the empathy, all the sorrow, all the rage. Let it permeate you. Embrace its engulf. Because Freddie Gray deserves it. Baltimore deserves it.
I never watched The Wire. Until now.
