Wafer’s tral for 2nd degree murder and manslaughter is set to begin on Monday, July 21. Now is the time to demonstrate that Renisha has supporters across the country who are counting on Wayne County Prosecutor, Kym Worthy, to deliver justice.”

Love this!

With the state of the world right now as it is. And everything sad and devastating just pouring out everywhere. I find it really hard to be happy. I feel guilty of being happy that my room smells fresh or that I’m going to eat something yummy tonight. I feel guilty that one side of the world is fine. And the other is experiencing evil.
