In the midst of the unfortunate series of events that has been unfolding, I ask you to not give up the hope for a better state of being, to never give up the fight as many have done before us.
We will not give into this invisible fear that has been feeding those hungry for hate. They have nothing. We have everything.
We carry the inspirations, the endless effort, and bold individualities that come together and push forward to create an unstoppable force. We will rise and stand from sundown to nightfall. You will hear our voices nonstop, see the strength of our peaceful hands holding onto one another. You will feel the steps we take as we march for the past, present, and future.
There is no other choice but to pay attention. To remain oblivious gives others the chance to disrespect our humanity and oppose our civil rights and individual freedoms. And then what? Those who oppose know little. We experienced plenty.
Injustice isn’t new. But we are. We are a new generation joining with the old generation. We are the colors that brighten this world. We are vivid. We are vibrant. We are strong. We accept and accept and accept as much as we love.
But if you haven’t noticed, just you wait. It’s happening right… Now.
