***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

End the violence and increase the peace.

We won’t rest until all wars foreign and domestic cease,

Or until a father no longer gets the news

his son that just walked to the corner store is deceased.

See this war isn’t just overseas;

Its living breathing and spilling blood right here in these streets,

Young victims being gunned down because of the color of their skin and the shoes on their feet.

 Daily drive by shootings stop too many heart beats.

Don’t you think it’s a pun,

when they scream take away the guns.

In reality it’s not the guns.

We are the dangerous ones.

We would rather scream and shout than work it out.

I don’t think we know where it started or what it is even about.

We shove instead of giving love.

And we lack the peace that passes all understanding.

Every circumstance and situation has to end in a crash landing,

And you can only win if you are the last man standing.

It’s time to end this insanity,

For the sake of all of humanity.

We are one human family.

Our roots run deep like a forest full of trees.

We all sway to the same breeze.

We are intimately connected.

When one of us is neglected, we are all affected.

Next time anger rears its ugly head,

Reject it instead

In your loudest, proudest voice.

Declare that violence isn’t a given, it’s a choice.

Diedre B is a single mother of five children currently working on her Master's Degree in Criminology.  She received her undergraduate degree at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in Human Services, Criminal Justice and Sociology.  She stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street as well as other grass roots movements.  She has rallied and protested numerous causes in various cities such as:  DC, NYC, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and locally in my city Erie, Pa.   She does not subscribe to political or religious labels as she considers herself autonomous. She feels as though declaring such labels only encourages division amongst us. Her outlook on political and societal issues tends to be more rounded and takes all sides into account which leads to a more all inclusive perspective. In a time where unity is necessary, divisive labels only serve as a detriment to the change that we seek as one human family.  Standing together is the only way that we can win this fight.  Time to Stand Up Not Down because when there is No Justice there will be No Peace.

“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1-3.

And the beast called itself GOP and written upon its seven heads are: Avarice, Cowardice, Entitlement, Homophobia, Ignorance, Misogyny, and Racism. And the meek shall cry out in agony. And the beast shall be slain by the Lamb, in their name. And the beast's name shall be erased from the minds of men forever.

Amen
