Who Do You Remember?

- Advertisement -spot_imgspot_img

George Floyd

Ahmed Aubrey

Breonna Taylor

Who do you remember? What names will you never forget? Maybe Botham Jean, who was fatally shot on September 6, 2018. While sitting on the couch in his own apartment, an off-duty police officer that lived in the same complex mistakenly walked into the wrong apartment and fired her gun.

What about 32-year-old Philando Castile? On July 6, 2016, Officer Yanez, of the St. Anthony, Minnesota police department pulled him over for a routine traffic stop along with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter. After complying with all his requests, behaving appropriately, and displaying good citizenship, Castile was shot by Yanez. Quick thinking Diamond live streamed the incident on Facebook to protect herself and young child from being murdered as well.

Stephon Clark

Eric Gardner

Sean Bell

Trayvon Martin

Maybe the names listed are among those that you remember. Perhaps you can think of many more names. While you remember the names of black lives innocently taken because of prejudice and racism, do not forget to include the names of those who fought for black lives.

Viola Liuzzo

James Reeb

Viola, mother of five, was shot on March 25, 1965 by the Ku Klux Klan as she provided transportation to the Montgomery airport for African Americans participating in the events occurring after Bloody Sunday in Selma, Alabama. She felt a call to duty and left from Detroit to assist. Many may never know her story, or understand the persecution her children went through as teachers, neighbors, and community members showed no mercy or empathy for their loss. They endured torment and several injustices all while grieving the loss of their beloved mother.

Yes, all lives matter! White lives matter. Brown lives matter. Blue lives matter. Unfortunately, for too long black lives have mattered a lot less than any other on the face of this earth for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Mira Cassidyhttp://Master!2345
Mira Cassidy is an Indianapolis author, journalist, and motivational speaker who from a young age found peace and serenity in writing. A love for the art form blossomed in 2015 when she went back to complete her degree after an eleven-year hiatus. There she took additional English and creative writing courses. During those semesters the depth of her creativity was unlocked, and she produced some of her first short stories and additional poems. As a teen she received the opportunity to continue her studies in Telecommunications via the local Youth Video Institute where she developed a foundation in video production, directing, editing, and journalism. This experience allowed her to interview and meet many individuals from different walks of life including a very young Nick Cannon, David Hollister, and Suzanne Taylor. Today, Mira is a very busy and devoted mother of three. She uses her voice to raise awareness to the pain and suffering caused by domestic violence, adverse childhood experiences, and destructive cycles. Also, she advocates for more funding and focus to be brought into area schools to service children who are exceptional learners.
