Choose Love Not Fear- Have a Conversation!!
So bizarre, as if holding a sign that says, "no racism, no hate" is a bad thing. Well if you support Trump it obviously is. Did you see the video of Hitler's rise to power. I beg of you all to have a conversation, we are at a serious crossroads here...you must remember what Bernie says, how growing up in a basically a migrant neighbourhood in the US and going to the market and people had serial numbers tattooed on their arms. Have a conversation about hate and racism, educate yourself and your children. Do NOT be apathetic at this time in history because you may NOT have the opportunity in the future.
CHOOSE LOVE NOT FEAR!!!
I do not think some people realize the SERIOUSNESS of this situation. Please for those of you who are older and remember the the World Wars and all the suffering, speak up, DON'T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN...because it's brewing. People, older people I find are apathetic, they don't really care, they are not in touch or they think they can't do anything...but YOU MUST!
Speak with your children, your family and friends, SPEAK OUT AGAINST HATRED!!
Did you read the story of Anne Frank? It has been many years since I read it but it affected me deeply. Share this story, this could be your child? Do you want this to happen to them? Is this the life you want for your family, your country, the world?
During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Anne Frank received a blank diary as one of her presents on June 12, 1942, her 13th birthday. According to The Anne Frank House, the red, checkered autograph book
which Anne used as her diary was actually not a surprise, since she had
chosen it the day before with her father when browsing a bookstore near
her home. She began to write in it on June 14, 1942, two days later. On July 5, 1942, Anne's older sister Margot received an official summons to report to a Nazi work camp in Germany, and on July 6, Margot and Anne went into hiding with their father Otto and mother Edith. They were joined by Hermann van Pels, Otto's business partner, including his wife Auguste and their teenage son Peter. Their hiding place was in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex at the back of Otto's company building in Amsterdam. Otto Frank started his business, named Opekta, in 1933. He was licensed to manufacture and sell pectin,
a substance used to make jam. He stopped running his business while
everybody was in hiding. But once he returned, he found his employees
running it. The rooms that everybody hid in were concealed behind a movable bookcase in the same building as Opekta. Mrs. van Pels's dentist, Fritz Pfeffer,
joined them four months later. In the published version, names were
changed: the van Pelses are known as the Van Daans, and Fritz Pfeffer as
Mr Dussel. With the assistance of a group of Otto Frank's trusted
colleagues, they remained hidden for two years and one month.
They were betrayed in August 1944, which resulted in their
deportation to Nazi concentration camps. Of the eight people, only Otto
Frank survived the war. Anne died when she was 15 years old in Bergen-Belsen, from typhus.
The exact date of her death is unknown and has long been believed to be
in early March, a few weeks before the prisoners were liberated by
British troops in April 1945. However, new research in 2015 indicated
that Anne may have died as early as February.

Read about the wall. Do you know about the wall. HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THIS!!
The Berlin Wall (German: Berliner Mauer) was a barrier that divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany), starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and was completed in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, which circumscribed a wide area (later known as the "death strip") that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc
claimed that the Wall was erected to protect its population from
fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in
building a socialist state in East Germany. In practice, the Wall served to prevent the massive emigration and defection that had marked East Germany and the communist Eastern Bloc during the post-World War II period.
Do you want to go backwards? Do you want your children, neighbours, friends and family to suffer the things these poor souls went through.
Don't be apathetic, speak up for #HUMANRIGHTS, #SOCIALJUSTICE #LOVE

For the sake of ALL OUR #CHILDREN, NOW IS THE TIME!!!

Listen to what David Bowie says here...he was referencing "the wall" and YOU CAN BE HEROES, even if it's just for ONE DAY!! That one day is the VOTE!!! I beg you America, you are being tested now...don't fail...
"I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes, just for one day"
"Then we could be heroes, just for one day"
And one last note, if you CHOSE to DO NOTHING- THAN YOU ARE and WILL BE GUILTY OF THE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY THAT WILL OCCUR!!
Do you want blood on your hands??
NO MORE VIOLENCE!!!
