BLM Peaceful Protest in Hanover, PA on June 6, 2020

 

On D-Day…On Omaha Beach…They fought for our flag so that we can breathe. They fought for our freedoms so that we can kneel to be heard. They fought for liberty and justice for all.

 

This is BLM’s Omaha Beach. And we all must fight so that we can breathe. We must fight until all people are heard. We must fight for liberty and justice for all.

 

We have been on this mountain before. And the fact is what we are SEEING are the VOICES of the UNHEARD. This is a reset button. This a reboot. This is not an end but rather a BEGINNING.

 

But we need more than just Police Reform. We need Systemic Change. It must begin in Washington, DC, and continue through to Harrisburg and our local governments. We need Restorative Justice.

 

It seems impossible as we stand here today, but it isn’t. We are all just one line in a notebook. But one line can change a whole page, the whole story.

 

Muhammad Ali, who not only fought in the ring but also fought for justice said this about the word IMPOSSIBLE. Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

 

Rich Sterner,

Candidate, PA Senate District 33
