HMM

How many more people have to die?

How many more mommas have to cry?

How many more children have to ask why? Why did my mom or dad have to die?

How many more nights must we pray, “Lord, please don’t let this be my child one day?

How many more times must we say, “There has to be a better way?”

How many more times must we endure this before the pain goes away?

How many more videos do we need see?

How many more times do we need to hear not guilty?

How many more times must we say “That could have been me?

How many more knees on necks?

How many more settlement checks?

How many more families must be wrecked?

How many more years?

How many more tears?

How many more people of color have to live in fear?

How many more? Enough is enough.

Our lives are already rough.

We are tired of being tough.

We are tired of not being good enough.

So tell me, how many more times before we admit there are problems?

How many more times must this happens before we find ways to solve them?

How

Many

More
