"Moreover, I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states. […] Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial “outside agitator” idea."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
what if our love never went away?
what this individual did is all i want to do with my life.

take a stand against injustice. assume a leadership position, not for its prestige, but for the opportunity to use your power to make a difference in the lives of the hungry, infected, afflicted, discriminated and marginalized. be an advocate of peace. create change. love others. be a voice for the silenced. make a difference.
“what about now? what about today?”
start now. start today.
I LOVE GAGA SO MUCH FOR THIS!!!!!!!!
“The Monsterball is by nature a protest: A youth church experience to speak out and celebrate against all forms of discrimination + prejudice. Tonight we will continue to actively protest social and political injustices in Arizona. We will sing, we will stand up, + we will be heard.” -Lady Gaga
so, today i went to an immigration rally.
today, for some reason, it was very inspirational.
america is a country that was founded by immigrants.
in the nyc harbor, at the base of the statue of liberty, it says, “give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free.”
the arizona law, sb 1070, does not live up to that claim.
what about the declaration of independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
the arizona law, sb 1070, does not live up to that declaration either.
regardless of one’s status within the US, whether you’re pro- or anti-immigration, the rights of man, human rights, still exist. human rights transcend all boundaries.
often times, people think that just because one is illegal, they don’t deserve rights.
every human being deserves to be treated fairly and justly, to have their rights upheld.
America was founded on the principles of justice, equality and opportunity. we preach all three.
but in practice, we don’t live up to them—and sb 1070 certainly does not.
it’s time to return to our foundation, our building blocks, and stand up to this injustice.
regardless of one’s nationality, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, class, status, or any other categorizing factor, we are all humans.
when one suffers, all suffer.
take action. stand up. fight back. demand justice. speak words of equality. spread peace. love one another.
because we are all brothers and sisters.
