I would hear things in my head like. 前人的那些话 似乎不是在鼓舞我 而是在嘲笑我这些话缠绕在我大脑中 久久不能散去 我能听到 Martin Luther King who said so correctly that we will have to repent today. 马丁.路德.金的谆谆教诲我们今天要忏悔的 Not for the vitriolic words and violent actions of the bad people. 不是坏人的刻薄言辞和暴力行为 But the appalling silence and inaction of the good people I was the good person. 而是好人那可怕的沉默和不作为我是好人 I had to repent I stood there as people came over to me and I could barely talk. 我需要忏悔我呆站在那里 人们从我面前走过 我一句话都说不出 Finally, I had enough.
