🤎Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month this year takes on a more somber note as we reflect on the many lives which have been lost due to Covid-19.

Every person on this planet is different. Be it skin color, sexuality, gender identity, body shape, religion or anything else. Different is good, it’s exciting. If we were all the same this world would be a boring one. That’s why I believe everyone should be treated equally. No one can change their skin color, sexuality, gender identity, body shape, religion or anything else. I don’t understand why people treat other human beings like they are less of worth. Because the differences on our bodies doesn’t define who we are. It’s our actions, how we behave, how we treat one another. The differences between us is what makes every human being on this planet beautiful in their own special way. Our race, the human race, is one. We are the same even when we are different. We all are beautiful.

i try to hide it,
i try to embrace it,
i try to run from it
,but i just cant seem to help it,
wanna stay behind closed doors,
dont wanna feel this anymore,
are you calling me a sinner?are you calling me a non believer?
this love, this ache, this fear,
wont just go away
day by day,i feel less awake.

Hand against hand; brother against brother.
You should have been taught to nurture another
-not cold blood murder-
The system is flawed but the fucked up thing is some applaud.
The way we are painted, the colors that cloak us, are not ropes that therefore bind us.
A life is a life.
Put down your knife.
not only enough; no, i’ve had too much
Too many innocent lives.
Too many “misunderstandings”￼ that are the beginnings to endings.
I cannot know your fear, I cannot know your devastation￼.
endless corrupted destruction
Seeing the plight of your world, my heart shatters.
Black. Lives. Matter.

Let’s talk real talk...
So for those of you who are living in the United States, i’m sure you’ve heard about what has happened with George Floyd. What happened to him was awful and I understand why people are outraged and to a certain degree why people are protesting, but it has become out of hand. People need to realize that what they are doing is having cinsequneces, along with the fact that the family of George Floyd had even said that this was not what they wanted. The protesting was okay while it has been peaceful, but now people are going to news stations, as well as other places and damaging public property and harming civillians. In Atlanta there was a new station that protestors threw rocks, and other heavy objects at the window. The protestors shot BB guns at the station, even hitting one of the reporters that was inside. The situation has reached an out of hand level, and I think that everyone has forgotten one major fact-
The fact is that we are all humans. No matter what the color of your skin is, the gender you indetify with, your sexual orientation, you are still human, WE are still human. We are all human beings who make mistakes , and none of us are perfect nor will we ever be perfect. Harming innocent people is not the way to handle this situation. To put into perspective what I am sayin as well, earlier today me along with my friends got a notification from a group of about 100+ individual saying that to exact their justice they are goign to go through all of the “White neighbrhoods” and shoot every white person, car, home, ect. These people openly stated that they do not care about age and whether it be a baby, a man, a woman, an ederly, if the color of their skin is white they are going to be shot. Seeing this concerns me. I worry for my friends, I have white friends and I do not want to see them hurt just because of the color of their skin. These are people who have not done anything, yet they are being prosocuted. I may not be the oldest or wisest, but I am old enough to know that this neds to stop and people need to wake up. Wake up and aknowledge that this is the wrong way to handle things. Aknowledge that we are all still human beings and shoyld be treated as such, not by the color of our skin.
I understand some people may disagree with what Iam saying or have a difference of opinion, but this is just how I am seeing it and my opinion. I sincerly hope it gets to at least one person.

Record the entire situation with your cell phone.
Make eye contact with the ones doing evil and hold it until they look away, then stare them down until they leave.
Blast "La Bamba" at a white supremacist/nazi gathering.
One person standing against evil makes a difference in a life, but groups of people across a nation standing against it all the time?
That changes generations of lives.
Which changes the world.

I genuinely had no idea how emotionally impactful Pride was going to be. I’ve never seen more love amongst strangers in my life. It’s so cool when a bunch of weirdos like you gather together!!
Not a single one of us is perfect. We all have, and will continue to, make our fair share of mistakes. Just remember that when someone makes a mistake that impacts you, there may be room for correction.
We must change the world .
It is incredibly important that hate is advocated against people who are different or who are not endorsed in any other way ! A society in which is hated and discriminated against is broken . We have to learn to accept more , to tolerate more , to love more , and above all we must learn to be more cosmopolitan .
A Happy Ending!!
Celebrate Life. Be grateful for good health and what you have. Be the best version of yourself, live in your truth!!!!
