Today, We Demand Change

Today, my love. Today, we will walk together in the rain and make great plans for our future.

Today, we will walk beside each other and show support for others who are ill, poor, homeless, and lost.

Today, we will walk together and show that we love each other as much as we love ourselves.

Today, we will stand against the mountainous machine of big business that seeks to cuff us into oppression.

Today, we will stand shoulder to shoulder in a cause for goodness and light.

Today, we make haste of the work needing to be done to stand together and fight against unjust financial pressure.

Today, we will mark this date upon our calendar as the day we take our power back and begin to control our own future again.

Today, we work tirelessly to care for our sick and injured, our youth and our elders.

Today, we make broad and sweeping changes to how things are done and replace them with thoughts of love and support.

Today, our voices are heard.

Today, we are proud to be able to stand in this line of people who are demanding something better, something more appropriate.

Today, we love each other as brothers and sisters. We grieve for our ancestors who were held in such financial disrespect. We cry for our mothers who can’t afford to feed their families. We express sorrow for our forefathers who thought they were leaving this world in a better state for their young. 

We feel saddened. Then we feel hopeless. Then we feel anger. Then we feel rage. Then we stand together and demand change.

We stand together this day to promise our children a better world.

We ask for God’s blessings, Amen.
