Repost from @lexcimercedes_: To whom it may concern, or better yet, to who will listen and take action,
I am tired of unanswered questions and refusal to take action against individuals in roles of authority. As young people, we rely on our elders to protect and defend us when an issue arises, but we are beginning to realize we must defend and protect ourselves from the very people we were told would keep us safe.
Today is February 16, 2018. Yesterday, A 19-year old white male opened fire at a school in Parkland, Florida. We live in a country where a 19-year old can purchase a weapon of mass destruction to take 17 lives, but can’t purchase an alcoholic beverage. When will it be enough? When will we, as a society, start looking out for each other? I am sick. I am disgusted. I am hurt. But, I will take action. My siblings and future children have to grow up in this world. SCREW YOUR GUNS.
2018 is about growth for me. Mental, physical and spiritual growth that’s what it’s about this year. I’m going to be the best me possible. Period. One way I’m doing that is by reading 30 books in 2018. I’m sharpening my mind with some of the most thought provoking books written. I challenge you all to also take that journey of improvement. Even if it’s five books, go for it! #learn #grow #mindbodysoul2018
