Clarity

This is one of those days when you know just where you stand.
This is one of those times where the fence is not for sitting on.
This is one of those years where history is being made.
This is one of those times where we can truly rise above.
This is one of those incidents where we must act for love.

This is the time to take your stand for righteousness.
This is the time to let go of fear and hate.
This is when stereotypes just will not do.
This is the time to unite as humans for justice.
This is the turning point of our generation.
When will we take action to heal this nation?

Raze the monuments that lift up the hatred.
Remove the leaders of genocide from our bills.
Stop romanticizing murderers’ evil thrills.
Move our country back toward the dream.
Make it turn right back around. “Soon!” we scream.
