PROMPT: The Fight for Justice

Dear society -- that is you and me, 

George Floyd: May 25th 2020. Breonna Taylor: March 13th, 2020. Ahmaud Arbery: February 23rd, 2020.  
Salty tears are a familiar feeling to me now. Waking up to puffy eyes and heavy sighs. Lingering frustration. Leaving my home is like walking into war. It's truly the little things: the looks, the beauty standards, the lines which separate "us from them." The invisible signs that might as well still say "Whites Only". I was...
