It is incumbent upon us to recognize the
and the inherent deleterious nature of an instrument that was used to attempt to force us to succumb, both physically and in spirit.
We must, as a people, once again "dig within" and learn to fight the crippling effects of a system that is designed to perpetually cast us against ourselves.
More importantly, we must utilize our innate ability(ies) to stand against a system that has been nutured to wield power over us through oppressive and suppressive tactics.
Our Spirit Lives!!!
