I have mourned so many of our losses and my spirit stands up in me to stand up and fight for change….. I’m not a marcher, but I’m going to start by fasting with my money.  I will do a 30 day cleanse. I’m not sure how the fast will look, but I am so tired of the fear of terror. My dollars are supporting the silence and the comteptuous macro and micro-invalidation of the lives of the slain.
