I took part in a peaceful demonstration last night here in Washington, DC. Some of my faith in humanity was restored because humans of all colors were in the crowd to affirm that policy brutality needs to stop and that #blacklivesmatter.

Enough of us marched from the White House to the Capitol steps that members of Congress came out to address the crowd. Although I left shortly after that, I did see other photos of the Congressional Members marching back towards downtown with the protestors.

When I was his age I was really only thinking about jumping on the trampoline and playing with Star Wars action figures.
