Tonight I want to dedicate this post to my little cousin India. My little cousin is about two years younger than me and fights for her right to speak up about the black community any chance she gets. She also talks about the things that are destroying our youth as well. This young lady has always been in her own world but I never knew what her world was full of.
The more that I see my cousin grow into a beautiful black queen she motivates me every time I see her stand up for something or speak about injustice. At her graduation when she accepted her diploma she put of the fist of Black Power and her cap read "Black Lives Matter". I'm proud of her because she's furthering her education and she using her voice for something positive.
I ran across a picture of her on her page on Instagram speaking to a big crowd of people about what she believes in. I commend her and I thank her for being one of those people. My point is also that if we don't make any moves about what is affecting us we will continue to be victims to what is happening to us. We will take things for how they are and it will become acceptable. Never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
When you you stand for what you believe in, you show that you believe in yourself and what you love. If you have a problem with something it is okay to speak on it. A person or people will never know how you feel unless you open your mouth. You know what they say, "A closed mouth never gets fed". Don't let anyone get in the way of something you feel strongly about. Keep fighting for what's right.
Praise God, Stay Humble and Remember Black Lives Matter ✊🏾
