Today we celebrated the one year commemoration of Eric Garner’s death in which the police officer responsible for the killing has not been charged with any crime as of yet. So we continue to fight for our lost brothers and sister who have perished behind the hands of police brutality. People like Oscar Grant, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley, Micheal Brown, Travyon Martin, Ramarley Graham and many more.
We thank leaders like Rev. Al Sharpton and Pastor Jamal Byrant just to name a few that are on the front lines every day. I would also like to encourage the rest of us to stand up and support them in the fight because what is a commander without troops? So let us continue to rally, and agitate until an arrest is made in these deaths and laws are changed in this country. May we continue in this fight for the long haul, knowing that the bible tells us, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
Galatians 6:9 NKJV
May God continue to bless all the brothers and sisters who continue in the struggle day in and day out.
