Royce Lovett is delivering five minutes of a powerful poem called “I Don’t Know Justice” that grapples with how to handle the search for justice and peace.
In it, he speaks about Peace, Justice and Silence like they’re people and gives us another perspective about how to handle them.

She sings and carries a big sword with a smile so clean.
