I see you. I hear you. I cry with you. I hurt when you hurt. I hate the injustice, too. I stand with you. I stand for equality. I stand even if I receive backlash.
I can walk streets without fear. I can wear clothes without fear. I can purchase at a store, at night… without fear. I acknowledge what I have simply because I was born in my skin color.
And I choose to stand against the ignorant who hate simply because THEY CAN…
“It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
