Some of you may disagree, some of you will agree. But no matter people say, I want it known that I am sorry to all my brothers and sisters in these hard times. Whether you support Trump or not the protests are not easy on any family. This is my perspective on the last 24 hours that happened in the U.S.
To my fellow brothers and sisters across the globe, I am truly sorry for the battle that you are going to be fighting. You deserve better than this. We all do. This is going to be the hardest fight you will ever have to fight. But know that you are fighting for everyone. By standing out in the rain with that sign you are helping your people. By shouting at the top of your lungs with the crowd that cannot be tamed, you are helping your people. By chaining yourself to the ground and others around you, by peacefully practicing civil disobedience, by picketing, by signing that petition, by sending in emails, by calling everyday; you are making a difference.
Let people say what they want, they will no matter what you do. But know that you are stronger than their words of hate. You don't have to be afraid of them. They will tell you to get over it and you will not. They will knock you to the ground but you will always get back up. Because no matter how hard they are going to try to make your life a living hell you won't let them. You cannot let them.
What you're doing on the front lines matters. To the elderly who wish for the change just as much as you do, fight with them side by side. They know the struggle. They lived the struggle and know the battle isn't an easy one. Your words are your sword and shield. You fight for a better world tomorrow. You stand up for what you believe in because no matter what anyone says you know right from wrong.
Be the change that you want to see in the world. Do what it takes to bring justice to all. Don't be afraid, and rest easy knowing that the people beside you will fight with the same determination you have. They are your friends and family during these hard times. They are the people who will look out for you. They are the people who will fight with you until the very end.
Do not let hate win.
Whether you agree with me or not, it doesn't matter. I won't hate you if you disagree. But what I see is awful. My family doesn't understand and this seems to be the only place that I can tell people about my feelings on the events. If you found my words inspiring, I'm glad. You all deserve the best there is and having gone back 70 years in this short time is sickening to me. I hope everyone who is out there to fight against the system stays strong. You're never alone in the fight for justice. Keep fighting for what that man is trying to take away from you. Fight his lies and fight his hate. Bless you all.
