  1. My heart is breaking for Stephon and so many other victims of police brutality and I constantly worry about this country and its judicial system and the loss of democracy. If I was young I would never bring a child into this crumbling world. I know black communities suffer greatly but so do many others. What I am saying is we must join together of these injustices. I fear your message gets lost by making it a black issue. It is a human rights issue. We must fight together. First Trump needs to go with his Darwinism attitude. We need to wake up and see what is really happening. We need to organize together. The Parkland kids knew how to organize and get positive attention for their cause. We need to do the same over police and judicial injustices.
