This sign has my heart ❤ From the protest in Fayetteville,AR this week.
What does real change look like? What does justice mean if we don’t have justice for all? My heart breaks that this has gone on for way too long. I can’t begin to understand what it feels like to be discriminated against every day of my life or worry, as a mother, for the lives of my children because of the color of their skin. No mother should ever have to hear that cry. Ever.
This uprising is more than a fight to end racial discrimination. It’s a fight for justice against a police state that has gotten away with murder and horrendous crimes way too many times. If you break the law you should be charged, no one should be immune. You’ve taken an oath to protect and serve! Police should be held to a higher standard, even more so, to be an example for lawfulness and justice. It has been the opposite for way too long for the ones commiting these crimes.
We all have to stand united as a people and demand leadership that brings about change. We need a government that has accountability! When we see unidentified law enforcement standing guard in front of our nation’s capital and will not comment on who they are it takes on a whole different meaning.
The protests across the country in every state just proves every community has witnessed this injustice no matter how rural. I stand united with every momma. We have to protect our future and our children. EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.THEM.
