In Response to Social Justice Issues and Call for Reform
A Change MUST Come
Over the last several months, our country has been faced with a lot of devastation and unrest due to a global pandemic that has left millions in a health and financial crisis and continued racial injustice of black and brown Americans. As we continue to reel from the aftermath of the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks, one thing is clear: Racism is a global public health issue and emergency.
Intolerance of all kind continues to be a prevalent issue in all societies. However, it is up to each of us individually to have the courage to stand up and denounce racial prejudices, intolerant attitudes and injustice. Call it what it is and be on the right side of history by becoming a champion for the cause. Everyone has the right to be who they are no matter what they look like or their background.
The late Fannie Lou Hamer quoted at the 1964 Democratic National Convention "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired." Her words over 55 years ago ring true today. While we may feel sick and tired of being sick and tired of injustice, now is not the time to give up. Ms. Hamer recognized that the one way things will change is if we exercise our ability to vote. This one thing that many refuse to do can help change the laws we have and those who are in charge of making them.
I stand in solidarity with the movement for change.
