April is called the "intense" month. Poe wrote about it being the "cruelest month". It takes us to our edge outside the comfort zones. Many give their lives up. It happened this month in 1526 with the first slave revolt in the USA. Can you imagine the drama of that historical moment? This is the month of recorded hyper anti-immigration laws (Arizona 2010), the One Million March on DC for LGBT rights (1993), the acquittal of the police for beating Rodney King (1992), the launch of the Bay of Pigs (1961) and Martin Luther King assassination in 1968. The calendar is full, and this is not unique to our country or our own time. This is the month Jesus was tortured and put to death.
