“To do what is right, we try. Against the odds, we try. Stand down, they’ll say, you are not like us. Don’t listen to them. We must fight for our right to exist, for the truth. We are the human race, we will not be silent. We must fight for our right to try, for our right to know, for our future. We fight for equality, for justice. Above all, we fight for the cause of liberty, and fight we must. We must all play our role. We are brilliant shades of light, we cannot be contained. Stand tall and be brave. Keep these words hidden in your heart and know that I love you always.” – Boys of the fatherless, 2014
