When our voices are not heard, we shout louder.
When Racism, oppression, cruelty, injustice, violence and abuse keeps happening, repeating, we fight in peace harder.
When we are being ignored, ridiculed, shamed, hurt for speaking the truth and doing what’s right, we press on, we bare all until the rawness melts even the most hardened.
We will no longer be silent. We will no longer pretend it doesn’t bother and affect us all. Together united, we are stronger.
Our world is changing. Our minds and hearts are changing. We will break the chains. Walls will fall. The mighty and the powerful will be humbled.
One struggle. One dream. One fight. One goal. We will be free.
I stood frozen. They’re words were the words I wanted to scream. Then tears started falling. Next thing I knew, I was marching with them. It didn’t matter that we don’t know each other by name. What mattered was our voices were coming together shouting something we share the same , “Stop Violence. Stop Hatred. Stop Racism. Justice for all!” It felt good. I felt free.
America takes pride in its ability to protect freedom of speech. It is a country that will go to war to protect democracy and defend the oppressed. We are now at war and being oppressed within our own country. Please fight and save those you swear oath to protect and set free. Your people direly needs you now.
