We Are

We are the students in total fear, marching for the rights of our life.

We are the children and the young adults who grew up hastily overnight.

We are the parents, friends, and family not threatened by the NRA’s bluff.

We are devasted, heartbroken, and driven.  #ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

 

 

We are the undertakers preparing riddled bodies of victims fallen to gun violence.

We are the lens and ears that hear the screams and cries of a cemetery that holds no silence.

We are the activists, voters, supporters disappointed in our legislators NO vote on gun laws.

We are the senators and congressmen who let money reveal the weakness of our human flaws.

 

 

We are the blue and white collar workers who stood by and watched as Corporate America ship our jobs overseas.

We are the betrayed, lied to, and we’re definitely not pleased.

We are the punished, retaliated against, our rights were signed away.

We are the employees who suffer and we are in total dismay.

 

 

We are the entire White House Staff that works in an atmosphere created by fear.

We are the men and women tolerating the chaos, scandals awaiting the moment for the final frontier.

We are the poor, middle class, homeless, and tired.

We are no longer your working class because we all have been fired.

 

 

We are Corporate Banks never judge harshly or indicted and too big to fail.

We are Black, Brown, and Beige who didn’t commit a felony but was quickly introduce to a jail cell.

We are mentally disabled, shamed, framed and blamed for every Intentional incident.

We are the first budget cut. There are no institutions.  Jails are not the cure nor should it be our resident.

 

 

We are without support systems and there is no triage.

We are on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Our lives are being sabotaged.

We are labeled as socially unacceptable, the worst of the worst behaviors.

We are isolated from society. Who will be our savior?

 

 

We are scientists, think tanks, entrepreneurs, gathering information from the four corners of the earth.

We are a Good Nation investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Climate Change, Education, Cancer, and Multiple Disease Research.

We are the Media, Journalist, Writers, that needs to be reassured Democracy Did Not Die In The Darkness.

We are the Intelligent Minds who must continue to Recognize the man who seeks power is unorganized and lacks the skill set of smartness.

 

 

We are Breaking News where many stories rapidly unfold.

We are not confused. There are many strategies and tools for our brain’s sensory overload.

We are Athletes, Sports Executives, and Commentators socialized in a culture of gambling, drugs, and alcohol use.

We are the Women who voices were heard.  Women who rose to the occasion, and remain to fight against sexual harassment, child, and spousal abuse.

 

 

We are immigrants, Grand Guardians and protectors taking a stand.

We are the children of the undocumented that has every right to reside on U.S. Land.

We are UK, United States, Germany, in total disagreement of Rusia sinister act of war.

We are the messengers with our megaphones serving notice to Russia’s Czar.

 

 

We are the special counsel, FBI, investigators gathering evidence into the Russia Probe.

We are staying focus, factual and thorough sealing the gaps and closing down the loopholes.

We are the pragmatist, listeners, humble and ready to jump-start the conversation.

We are Susan Rice and General H.R. McMaster, National Security Advisors, understanding the relevance of communication.

 

 

We are Command, taking Command working with all faculties and common sense.

We are the Army, the Navy, the Airforce, the Marines, honoring the strategies of a strong Secretary of Defense.

We are the Red States and the Blue States with different opinions, taking different actions.

We are the United States, a nation that can govern, unlike McConnell, Ryan, and the GOP faction.

 

 

We are religious, God-fearing let no man put asunder.

We are all God’s Creatures, not the Commander In Cheif Creation. This is Why he lost his thunder.

We are the great lens of our nation, vigilant, and perched upon the highest steeple.

We are engineers, architects, map makers with new designs and new directions for a brighter future.  We Are The People.
