Black lives matter

Post Positive Images- Baltimore Protests

Posted on Updated on

We all are aware that the media has taken all the good of the Baltimore protests and turn it into the destruction of the Baltimore riots!  I ask everyone to counter this misrepresentation by posting of peaceful photos of demands for justice.  Do it anywhere and everywhere you can. Thank you and spread the word!

I am deeply troubled by the state of our country.

I deplore the past actions and the more recent actions of our police force.

We are living in what can be best describe as a police state, the early stages.

Moreover, I can say with confidence that racism is rampant and it can’t hide any longer.

The global and national protests give me hope.

We are not alone.

I pray our voices stay strong, loud and undeterred.

We can stand united. We will be heard.

We can teach tolerance.

We can choose love over hate.

Join us.

Start today.

Speak up, even if your voice shakes.
