We are Still Afraid to Bleed

Malcolm X has a speech entitled, We Afraid to bleed. He talks about for the revolution of that time and folks were afraid of bloodshed to get what they wanted. He did NOT mean to start a war or to start killing but to not be afraid to stand up in the face of injustice. Not to be afraid to stand up and say that we will not lay down in the face of violence and injustice. But we stand up and fight back if needed. But it will take a united effort to show that we are not willing to take what is given to us.
Today we are still afraid to bleed. We aren't bleeding for the same things but we are still afraid! We are afraid to unite around the stopping the violence  from our own people in fear of death while innocent children are dying! Too many children have been lost to some one who should have been locked up ages ago. We are afraid to bleed for our education. We are surely becoming left in the background educationally. We are not uniting ourselves the way we should over education. We have been sucked into a complacency of just attending. Mediocrity has become a prison. We have to be strong and we have to push ourselves to be great! We have to sacrifice to be great. We have to push ourselves to make sure our voices don't go unheard in the near and distant future because we refuse to work hard as an individuals & collectively. We have to work as a unit! We have to sacrifice and bleed. Bleed everyday for our ongoing cause!...thank you for taking a look in My Thoughts...
