(Writing this with trembling hands and a shaky voice as I let it all out...)😰😰😰😰😰😰😰
You can’t say you love people and not be outraged by what is happening to Black Lives across this country!
I’m tired of innocent lives being murdered!
I’m tired of the media trying to normalize violence!
I’m tired of feeling powerless!
I’m tired of crying in silence!
I’m tired of hurting in silence!
I’m tired of suppressing my pain in silence!
I’m tired of feeling numb!
Im tired of pretending to be okay for the sake of making others comfortable around me!
But most of all I’m tired of RACISM!
RACISM ON ANY LEVEL!
Making arrests is a start but not clearly enough!
It should be ILLEGAL to be A RACIST on ANY LEVEL because of its violent threat to humanity!
Racists need to be put away behind bars until professional help is provided to these ill-minded people that are a threat to BLACK LIVES AND ALL OF HUMANITY!
As a woman of God I pray that the racist heart be transformed to love but until then.......
WHAT IS FAITH WITHOUT WORKS?!
WHAT IS CHANGE WITHOUT ACTION?!
WHAT ARE GOALS WITHOUT PLANS?!
ALL THESE THINGS ARE JUST HOPES AND DREAMS!
SILENCE HAS NNNEEEVVVEEERRR BEEN AN OPTION BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY WE’VE BEEN TOLD TAKING THE HIGHER ROAD IS THE WAY TO BE SAFE?!
WELL GUESS WHAT?!
WHAT GOOD IS TAKING THE HIGHER ROAD IF HALFWAY THERE YOU ARE PULLED OVER, HARASSED AND DAMN NEAR KILLED FOR IT?!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
IM TIRED AND IM NOT OKAY!
WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO BE TIRED OF ALL OF IT?!
THIS ISN’T WHITE VS. BLACK!
THIS IS EVERYONE VS. RACISTS!
