Blackeney Smith

Though he doesn’t complain and certainly wouldn’t make any comparisons, Black’s life has not been easy, but it has made him curious to understand why people act the way they do.  If asked, he would probably say that our humankindness makes every one of us equally capable of remarking at the beauty of a sunrise a moment before visiting violence on each other, because there is thin line that exists between any two opposing constructs, like love and hate or right and wrong, and within that line are a thousand-and-one reasons, but a person only ever needs one.  He knows that love is the wellspring of kindness and compassion as well as anguish and vengeance.  He understands that our beliefs often make us do evil in the name of good.  As a student of the thin line, Black wears his scars of humankindness openly.
