We Can’t Be Present If We’re Silent
“My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us.
I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain.
This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.
Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind These Stones, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.
I am here.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, ‘Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters.’
I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.”
