Say Their Name: Roll Call of #BLACKLIVESLOSTthatwentviral

Say Their Name. They are no longer here alive among us. 
I cannot invite them over for dinner. I will not see them in the grocery store. They will not attend any more birthday parties. 
Their mothers will never hold them again. Say their name.

Lord, may they rest in PARADISE because Peace will not come any day soon. The media is still trying to vilify their existence
even after their death. 

Say their name. You may not know them. I do not know them, but they were born to this world just like I. Truth is, in spirit, we are all just the same.  #SAYTHEIRNAME
