Juneteenth 2020

From Dred Scott to Trayvon Martin, the American legal system sounds in Black injustice.  Today, Americans, of every color and creed, are marching together to proclaim #ENOUGHISENOUGH. Not one more Black man or woman should plead, “I can’t breathe!” It’s not enough that we, the People, are marching to demand that the promise of America finally become reality once and for all! Every branch of OUR government must be committed to the pursuit of their intended purpose to create a more perfect Union that establishes Justice and secures the Blessings of Liberty for all!  We will continue to fight for our common purpose.  We know that we must be the change we seek. We know that so much remains to be done.  On this day, we are so proud to proclaim HAPPY JUNETEENTH, AMERICA!! #BLM

“We cannot play ostrich. Democracy just cannot flourish amid fear. Liberty cannot bloom amid hate. Justice cannot take root amid rage. America must get to work. In the chill climate in which we live, we must go against the prevailing wind. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.”
