His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too."

"So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide."
