We Matter…

IMG_6625.JPG

I don’t have much to say…but I will say this…it begins at home. It begins in our own cities…on our streets! We have to remember not only this but we also have to remember who we are as a people. How great we are, how strong we are, and most importantly how smart we are. Yes we have come a long way…but not far enough. I was fortunate enough to learn my history at a young age from my parents and grandparents. I was lucky enough to grow up in just about every black community in the City of Pittsburgh, so I know what we can do when we come together as a community. I also unfortunately know what can happen when we stop caring about what’s going on in our communities and only focus on self. If you want to see change, you must first seek change within yourself. You must first be the change you seek.

I stand for #JordanMiles, #LeonFordJR just as much as I stand for #TrayvonMartin, #MikeBrown and now most recently #TamirRice.
