FOR THE LOVE OF THE MOVEMENT

So this was on 4th and oak and so it was after the shooting, and yeah, this basically was people in the community coming out and kind of making him sort of like a memorial type of thing after the police took his life and I put this under injustice because I feel like no matter what the situation is, nobody deserves to lose their life, period. You know what I’m saying, so if you maybe had someone and you felt like he was out of hand or something was going on, I feel like there are a lot of measures that you can take before pulling out a gun and ending someone’s life…you know what I’m saying? You have the police there to protect and serve, but how are you affecting your community when you kill somebody? You know what I’m saying, these people have families, these people have friends…these people work places with other people, you know, so it’s like you really have to stop and think about what you’re doing before you take that kind of action or you take a life, so I put this as, um, for the love of the movement because sometimes it’s not always about organizing or doing something immediately or taking action, but it’s just stopping to spend time and to show love for someone and show that you care.
