The only thing that mattered to us… I compare it to one match at a time, like we’re here for our community and that’s it. And if people want to see it and find ways to see themselves enlightened or take action where they see it and just decide to start acting on it in their communities, I think it can work. But now we’re just here for the community and that’s it. It’s the only thing that matters to us now.
Subsequently, the Bills They stated that support and their movement is just beginning.
It is something that everyone, including Bills, the entire community, must continue to work collectively around the affected families. The national media is here now, but there will be other news soon. It’s up to us and we plan to lead the charge. It’s not going to disappear from people’s lives in a month. This is something lasting, and we must do our part.
