Her passionate words of inspiration were encouraging for people to stand up for their rights and not become intimidated. Injustices of this country and of the world need to be exposed, SILENCE IS DEFEAT.
Everyone stood in solidarity with their fists raised high in the air, while a close friend of the family eloquently delivered another emotional statement about staying strong on situations like Sherman’s or any other struggles against oppression.
