Awesome post my friend S&F for you!
I AM BEYOND APPALLED at the reaction...
let the woman speak her peace!
This is at Stanford?! And less than 2 seconds after she starts speaking, that is the reaction?!?!
Good for her for standing up for what she believes.
"STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
EVEN IF YOU ARE STANDING ALONE"
It's because of people like her that I still have hope
and continue to fight the good fight.
PREACH ON SISTER!
"I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence.
Fear is such a weak emotion that's why I despise it.
We're scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth.
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you.
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to.
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you.
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few.
My screams are finally getting free, my thoughts are finally breaking through."
