It was ‘allegedly’ said to a grieving spouse of a soldier killed in action
“He knew what he was getting into, but when it happens it hurts anyway.”

This past weekend some Neo-Nazis took to the street to protest a racist statue’s removal in Charlottesville, VA. In the midst of the stupidity, several people were injured and 3 lost their lives. Though this is not something new to blacks in America, but it may serve as a wake up call to those who have remained silent on the subject. I urge you to get involved!
Being involved does not always look like a protest or screaming at the top of your lungs. It may be something as subtle as a song, poem or a quote, etc. Whatever way you choose to admonish racism, I encourage you to do so!
