It has been over 8 years since the murder of Trayvon Martin. 6 years since the murder of Michael Brown. Most recently, we've seen the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. When will it end?
We've protested. We've fought for change. We've demanded JUSTICE. Yet our voices and frustrations have continued to fall on deaf ears. Our brothers and sisters have continued to be murdered by those supposed to "protect and serve." For no reason other than the color of their skin. Enough is enough.
We found inspiration from the Livestrong Foundation started by Lance Armstrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars and spread cancer awareness through their bright yellow wristbands. To date, over 80 million Livestrong wristbands have been sold raising over 500 million dollars towards cancer research. More importantly, 80 million people have supported the cause and spread awareness to millions more in the fight against cancer.
Similarly, our vision is for as many people as possible to wear the "ENOUGH." bracelet and wear it proud, letting the world know that enough is enough. We will not be silenced. We will not be suppresed. We will not let the murderers of our brothers and sisters walk this Earth freely. We demand justice. We demand change.
As members of the human race, we each have a responsibilty to put a stop to injustice when we see it, and demand change when it is necessary. It starts with each and every one of us. One at a time. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Be the light.
