The leaps and bounds of freedom and civil rights in this country did not expand because of well wishes. There were men and women who took to the streets, airwaves, and churches to fight for equality. They all made monumental sacrifices for their own ethnic group, but also for all Americans.
I honor those who stood in the face of true hatred and didn’t budge. The ones who were beaten, tortured and killed so I could have a prosperous life today. I will continue, in their honor, for the betterment of mankind; however, in the grand scheme of things I haven’t really done much. That reason is I don’t have to suffer like they did because they did it for me. “My Ancestors paid the price, I’m just the receipt”
