by Ernie McCray Woke up this morning after a nice sleep last night and turned on the news to a scene that had me brimming with delight, the incredibly beautiful sight of Brittney Griner boarding a flight,
soon to be in the air, free as a bird from the deep dark despair of her detention in the Russian prison system, on her way to where she belongs: home sweet home to be in the warm welcoming arms of her loved ones, no longer distraught and alone. As I write I learn her plane has touched down in Old San Antone. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much joy in my bones.
