Just One Of My Reasons

This little guy I'm holding right here?

He's just ONE of the reasons we stand where we stand (and kneel where we kneel).

And hear me - I don't expect everybody to understand and I don't fault you if you don't.

If you don't lay down at night and wake up in the morning thinking about how to raise a young black man in a country that has repeatedly stated and shown that the value of his life is less than his white peers... if you don't lose sleep and tears over that kind of mess...

Then I don't expect you to get it.

I got friends who don't get it.

Family who doesn't understand.

I've watched churches and schools not get it.

I've seen business and entire communities not understanding...

But see... I hold the reasons for my support super close to my heart.

Like I said - You don't have to understand... and I don't think any less if you don't.

But when you attack the man, the mission and the method from a place of inability to relate... ya speak way louder about yourself than anything else.

Proudly standing, kneeling and fighting for what's right until we see the change my kids - and millions of others across this country - deserve.
