From dancing to singing to staying strong in moments of silence, people all over the world have come together to fight against society's structural racism, the police department's injustices, and the government's support of systematic inequality. Together, we are demanding justice and change.
The cruelty against black lives has gone on for far too long, it's absolutely disgusting and heart-wrenching. The more videos of police brutality and violence I see, the more hopeless I feel.
But we are not hopeless and helpless.
I've been doing all that I can to support the Black Lives Movement and you can, too. When my future kids ask what I was doing during this historical time, I will be proud to say I listened, protested, donated, and shared all the resources I could.
