I don’t want memories that make me cry. I don’t want a past that makes me ashamed of where I’ve been and what I’ve done. I don’t want history to paint me as a racist or one that doesn’t care for those who are different. I don’t want mother nature to think that I don’t respect all that she his given me and those I care for. I won’t let the violence that has ravished our country to consume all that’s good. I won’t live in a world that has no meaning. But I will make sure that everyone has a chance to do what’s right. It’s time to fix all that’s broken in the world, together.
