Residents of a South Carolina public housing complex are demanding answers after two of their neighbors died from the gas.
“I stand to honor the promise the flag represents. You kneel because that promise has been broken. I stand to affirm my belief that all are created equal, and to fight alongside you for that promise. You kneel because too few stand with you. I stand because we can be better. You kneel to remind us to be better. I stand to honor all that have fought and died so that we may be free. You kneel because not all of us are. I stand because I can. You kneel for those who can’t. I stand to defend your right to kneel. You kneel to defend my right to stand. I stand because I love this country. You kneel because you love it too.” Written by Andrew Freborg #nfl #nflkneeldown #takeaknee #takeakneeforjustice #knee
Having experience bullying in school, I can relate to a certain extent with 13 Reasons Why.
It’s bad enough to be picked on based on appearance, speech and very untrue rumors. What made matters worse that those that were in a position of authority, such as teachers, were too chicken sh*t to really do anything to stop it.
As I approach my fifties, those memories are still there. Now, they don’t sting as much…if at all…as they did back then, but they are STILL there.
By the way, some of those who went along with it are on my friends list. Heck, some of them may be reading this.
13 Reasons Why is a heart-wrenching story about how one deals with life and what it throws at you. If you’ve been lied on, you will get angry. If you’ve been picked on, you will get angry. If you’ve been sexually assaulted, you will get angry. If none of the above things happened to you, you will still bet angry.
