“Our Truth”

By Sandra Parks

Sometimes I’m back and I have to fly away from what I see and hear every day. I put on my headphones and let the music take me away. I go to pace and try to think of life and what everything matters. When I do, I come to the same conclusion … we is in chaos. In the city where I live, I hear and see chaos almost every day. Toddlers are victims of meaningless violence. There is too much black crime. As an African-American, that makes me feel depressed. people have lost faith in America and its ability to be a living example of dr. king’s dream!

The truth is faith and hope for what people can do has gone lost in the poor choices we make. We will overcome have got lost in the lie of who we have b livit! So now the real truth, we have to rewrite our history so that faith and hope for a better morning is not only within us, but we believe it and we put it into action.

Our first truth is that we must start to care about each other. We need to be empathetic and try to go in each other’s shoes. We will overcome when we eliminate negative and nasty comments that people make about each other. We will overcome when we love ourselves and the people around us. Then we will be our brother’s goalkeeper.

Our second truth is that we need purpose. We are the future generation, so we need education to make a positive difference in the world. We are the leaders of the future, but if we do not have an education, we will achieve nothing. We will overcome when we use our education to make the world a better place. We will be the next president, law enforcement officials, teachers, doctors, lawyers and legislators. We can not continue to be responsible for other people. It is our responsibility as future leader!

We must not allow the lies of violence, racism and prejudices to be our truth. Truth begins with us. Instead of handing over each other as a ship at night, we must fight until our truth extends to the ends of the world.
