I Am Tired…
I am tired of Black men, women and children being killed by the hands of people who are paid to protect us.
I am tired of Black people being viewed as a threat just by living and subsequently killed for it.
I am tired of writing about what we can do to change things.
I am tired of watching sobering sobs and weaken weeps of “survived by” loved ones.
I am tired of writing of how angry I am.
I am tired of mourning via hashtags.
I don’t have the strength to “recap” what happened to Alton Sterling but it is the same as Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Rekia Boyd, Tanisha Anderson, Yvette Smith, Trayvon Martin, Miriam Carey, Michael Brown, Aiyana Stanley-Jones and Eric Garner. All murdered by the hands of law enforcement.
I am tired of being tired.
