In a world where oppression and fear still runs rampant in many countries, America needs to be a beacon of hope, not a nation of divisive rhetoric driven by fear. Our country is based on the principles of liberty and justice for all embodying hope, freedom and equality.
Rarely have we witnessed a more pivotal moment in our history to make things right and show the world that injustice and prejudice are fundamentally unacceptable. We need to stand in solidarity with the black community against the injustice they face every day. Each of us needs to do his/her part to lead this nation to a better tomorrow. Now is the time to stand together as a nation, peacefully, to show the world that #blacklivesmatter.
