"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all (humans)men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
-Declaration of Independence
Predatory mentality and behavior is the foundation of the United States of America. Many have lost their mind, wealth, and health trying to figure out "How to affect change in the world." We are stuck in conflicting solutions and their causes because our points of view differ based upon the subversive pain we harbor. Why? Maybe because hurt people bring hurt solutions? Perhaps it is because we are the eye of our storm; Your rage is the rage of the World; cure your madness and help the World.
The systemic layers of hurt and anguish carried from one generation to the next are not exclusive to any one person or race, so we are getting it from every direction! Let's be real; As a woman, this struggle is my struggle, too! Each one of us is living each day surrounded by the circumstances of our nuclear family ideals, it's history, and how society relates to us. The specifics of our stories are different depending on who you are. When it comes down to it, our first job is to EMBODY the deep meaning of “Self-Evident” which means that we KNOW THYSELF WITHIN, to be EQUAL to all human life. That is our responsibility to one another. This is an inside job. Let's be honest, The struggle is REAL. Not all people are treated equally. So, where we are all stuck is in our FREEDOM; Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. There is so much to unpack in this space. And, It's a fucking mess.
Bottom line; An unjust attack on an individual is an attack on everyone. Especially when we are talking about the Police force we pay for as citizens to protect and serve "WE THE PEOPLE."
