As we rest in the darkness of night between yesterday and today.
Know what you stand for.
Understand deeply why you march.
See clearly how you intend to act for positive change.
Hear the chants and calls on the streets, but listen most intently to the voice within your heart.
Feel every ounce of who you are, generations back and forward.
Act with pride and intention.
Hate. Fear. Violence. Insults. Vulgarity. They do not become us.
We will not become them.
Walk tall. Do not stoop.
Do not march for what you are against: hate, fear, injustice.
March with all the virtue and grace that embodies the country and the world you are calling forth.
