The past few days in America have been sincerely some of the toughest days in our time. We are currently dealing with the reopening stages of a pandemic that has paused the world from its “normal” status. We are also dealing with a situation so large that has shaken the core of our hearts across America. The rise of evil and hate manifested itself in the murder of George Floyd via police brutality.
WHY ARE WE HERE?
As an immigrant, a proud Latino and proud American, I ask myself why we are even here!
We are a nation that can be the beacon of hope and change for the greater good of our compatriots but most importantly we know that the ideal of the American Dream is one that simply cannot be accomplished without love, compassion, equality and justice for all.
Having witness thru live videos the many protests across the nation, that in fact where very peaceful and different of the riots and violence that sparked throughout the nation. I can personally say, this is not the time to back down from protesting! Our voices, and the voices of those who cannot continue to fade into silence, need to be heard one way or another.
CELEBRITIES SPEAKING OUT:
Today, many sports celebrities and famous people along with many Americans across the nation have joined the #BlackOutTuesday movement via instagram by posting a black image on their stories or on the feed to show solidarity.
Some of them have also taken to Twitter to express their feelings and opinions on the situation. Here’s a look at a few of those opinions:

As a young immigrant, human being and as an American citizen; As a DJ, musician, sports fan, I ask for all of us to help, donate or in any other way come together in ending this sad episode of our society as racism has no place in this world in which it can belong to.
Thank you for reading and thank you for your support.
It is not a time to point fingers, put-blame or enhance hate. This is a time where as the next generation and as the next leaders of this world, we need to unite to bring the change we crave for our success and for our children.
