Here We Go Again: #Looking4Justice

We’ve been here before and we’re tired. Tired of searching for hope in a rubble of tragedy, only to be slapped with the message we keep trying to forget: “A system cannot fail those it was never built to protect.” {W.E.B DuBois]

Each time I hear that a Black person is  killed for looking suspicious because of their Blackness, my heart is wounded. And each time I hear that the murderer is granted freedom for committing this crime, my faith for this country dies and gets buried beneath the gravel of the last Black person that’s been killed by those who are supposed to protect and serve…who? Not me.

Where do we go from here? What can we do to feel like we live in a country that protects us?
