I love that the people of Ferguson, Missouri are fighting back,
have taken to their own streets to protest the loss of a promising young life,
are battling a system that continues to oppress
individuals for the color of their skin
and the amount of money in their pockets.
I love that they have succeeded in ousting a police force
much too eager to use violence
when something far more gentle
I love them for reminding us
that we ARE in control,
that these cities,
police departments and legal systems,
work for us,
Not the other way around.
I love them for showing us that we do still have
and when we join together
it is LOUD.
We don’t have to ACCEPT.
Instead we can RESIST
To the brave people of Ferguson,
And to Mike Brown,
the victim of appalling police brutality
and a civilization intent
I’m so, so sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Thank you for listening,
