Fight for Justice and Equality
My first time watching Selma was so painful knowing they suffered to get us where we are now with the rights we now have. The scene where the Boston priest was beaten to death by other white folks who thought their action to support the movement was wrong and ignorant. The betrayal of his own kind, his own race would kill him just for standing up for what he believes is right. Tears came pouring out of my eyes, just knowing he was beaten to death as he came down here to create peace for all of mankind.
One death after another during the march, it just didn’t end. Those deaths were then represented by the success the movement had, knowing family members were lost. The families stayed strong, they stayed strong to get what is right and what they have always been fighting for. Tears of family, friends and strangers encourage the movement far enough for the president to finally do something.
The Boston priest was brave, like people all over the world who fight for JUSTICE. All those people who participated in the non-violent march with Martin Luther King Jr, felt there was a good reason to fight the authorities. Their reasons were to have the FREEDOM and EQUALITY to all, not just the people who are known/seem as superior. FREEDOM and EQUALITY is not for one, but for all to contain the peace we must have in the world to survive, Selma made it clear we must continue fighting for racism to end.
