It’s June in the year 2020. In March the entire face of the earth was hit with a World-Wide Pandemic, Schools in the United States had to be closed and children had to learn remotely. Bars and restaurants, theaters, libraries, churches even small business had to close their doors—Yes! we were forced to stay home and if we had to go out we had to wear a mask covering our nose and mouth. Hundreds and Thousands of people fell ill to this CoronaVirus and many lost their lives.
Strangely enough, police brutality; murder, destruction and death was on the rise again, and many Protestors took to the streets: The PROTEST: It wasn’t written it was demonstrated. It was done in retaliation—headed by groups who believed that the occurrences’ that took place were unjust.
As a wife; mother, foster-mother, grandmother and a mentor to teens I have always taught each of them Principles, Morals and Respect. I tell every one of them to “FIGHT” for what you believe in, Stand your ground, and never give up. I tell my young people learn your history, know who you are and where you come from and if an unjust action takes place or a bias incident occurs that you believe is morally wrong—You Have The Right To PROTEST—complain, declare that something is not correct. You have the right to express strong disapproval or disagreement with that unjust act. And, if you have to take to the streets in disapproval remember Non-Violence plays a high-note on getting the Truth Across.
Be Powerful in the words you use.
Proclaim Protection—know Your Truth
Walk that Walk on Solid Ground and when you Take A Knee—
Raise your Fist and Be PROUD:
IN EVERY CITY AND IN EVERY STATE
KNOW—YOU ARE SOMEBODY
NO MATTER OF YOUR RACE …
