VFP Board member, April Adams submitted the poem below as a reflection of her experiences during the Weekend of Resistance.
Many beautiful colors of skin standing together in unison
Voices of different ages calling out for change
No more boundaries across the Nation
No more boundaries across the Globe
Calling out for RESPECT of LIFE
Calling out for DEMOCRACY...will the real Democracy please stand up?
We do stand and walk and play and cry and laugh and scream
For lives, innocent lives are being murdered from those whom we trusted
How to mend those wounds that sit deep in the marrow of those here and abroad
We must march forward into the day, into the night, until change, real deep seeded change becomes
Our way of Life
A beautiful celebration of brother Jacob George, reading the names, and at 10 pm, a visit from a representative of the mayor's office.
