Wake Up America

As much as I am outraged and dumbfounded by what happened with Michael Brown and Eric Garner, I see a glimpse of hope. And hope, they say, is stronger than fear. The American people are finally, finally waking up.

No longer are people clueless about the injustices right here in the states or abroad. Not everyone, but a good amount of people are finally seeing.

Of course, a large majority of the people don’t “see,” but with time, hopefully, they will.

p.s. I wanted to write about Ferguson or Eric Garner or this topic in general, but I was so shocked, I just couldn’t find words.
